The cd is either warped, dirty or scratched. Try it on another computer to verify if you don't see any obvious visual defects.

I'm sure you tried in the Computer Folder, right click the DVD/CD Rom Icon and select eject. You may have to dissemble the computer and the DVD/CD Rom drive.

If you have a DVD/CD Rom drive this should be easy. Just purchase a game either on-line or a in a local computer retail shop. Insert the DVD/CD game and it will automatically load the installer. There's a lot of sites you can go, try going to Amazon or Ebay.

My cd rom keeps saying no disc and the computer


First thing to try is to clean the DVD lense. a lense cleaner can be purchased any from Best-Buy to Wal-Mart. It's essentially a CD with a built in brush. This will clean the lense.

if that doesn't work, it may be time to replace the drive. DVD-ROM drives can be purchased for as little as $20 now, it may be worth your time to just replace it. It is possible that the motor that spins the DVD has gone bad, but it is highly unlikely.

CD-ROM drive doesn't load/play CDs or DVDs on laptop computer.


Hi,
Check device manager for marks, red cross's etc...on the devices list, look in here,

Start, control panel , system/maintainance,
device manager, disk drive in here, right click, scan for hardware changes, update diver,

or double click it, driver tab, try roll back, or update & search, internet needed,
if no light's or no activity after this and all connections are good, ESD kit, needed to test that, then it's drive failure.

Check the media on different Computer, if it functions
You have just confirmed it.

Regards.
RPF.

If you visit their website specific to the games you have, there should be a compatibility list.

Sounds like it is not compatible but it's worth a check.
