Problem with CD Drive

Hi my compaq laptop is having problems recognising any CD i put into my drive. This started a about 2 months ago when my VLC payer stopped working and now last night i put in a blank CD with pictures on it and nothing. I can hear it doing something after inserting the disc. I have trying blowing on the disc and the CD holder just in case of dust, ect but nothing. The disc registers on my TV DVD player so its not the disc.
The only thing i have done is update my Anti Virus software Avast. Then the VLC stopped working and now this. The other night too upon logging on something popped up asking about CD drives and it gave the option of my Optus broadband or windows(sorry i cant quite remember)-and i cant remember what i selected!.Please help!, Bec

HP Compaq notebook with a philips dvd-ram won't read


If you can see the CD Drive icon in My computer, it shows that at least Windows recognises the drive. If you are unable to see the drive listed in explorer (not the cd name but the actual drive icon), then please post a reply.

Other than that, you are describing what I think may be a faulty drive. If you open the case, check to see if the drive cable is in good contact with the connector and motherboard.

Acer Disk Drive Won't Work


First thing I would do is update the drivers for the cdrom. Also try using different program to rule out cd rom failure. You can use VLC media player, Window Media Player 11 and so on.
Also, if you open the cd rom you will see the glass laser eye. You can clean this eye with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.
