Replace your drive with a known working drive and see if this clears up your problem. If it does not then windows has been sabtosed by virus spyware or adware and you will probably have to reload windows again after a good reformat of your disk. If you have a restore disk it would be better. You will lose all your info so save it using either the internet or a drive like USB of some type.

A CD-ROM drive is a read-only drive. It will always says there is 0 usable space, since you cannot write to it. You need to have a CD-Writer in order to add content to either a CD-R or CD-RW disc. You would get the "not accessible" error message if there is no media in the drive. If you place a disc in the drive, that message should go away.

SOURCE: Replace CD-Rom Drive

solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.

voice of experience. hope this helps

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

CD-ROM has not worked.


It can use a DVD-Rom just make sure that the door is the same size as your old cd-rom so it will fit into the side of your laptop and also make sure that you remove the bracket from the back of the old cd-rom and reattach it to the back of the DVD-rom you want to put in your laptop so that way you can screw it into place

COMPAQ PRESARIO DVD ROM NOT READING ANY CD AND DVD PLS HELP


It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.

Hi,

Have you tried unistalling the drive in device manager and rebooting, windows will automatically pick up the drive on restart and install the driver again for you.
