All you need to do is go to the device manager
uninstall the cd/dvd drive
uninstall the ide secondary as well as primary channel and make sure you unistall the secondary channel first coz normally the primary channel is ur harddrive and if u uninstall the primary first the system will hang you will have to shut the system down forcefully
than restart the system and the system will detect everything again and issue should be resolved
if no than go to the ... click on drivers and the option enter ur tag... thats the service tag which is located on the back of the system its a seven digit alpha numeric code located on the white lable with barcodes ...and than select ur os by default the operating system which will be selected would be the one you got with the system... click on cd/dvd the firmware which is applicable ...
you will find the model of the drive in the device manager in the cd/dvd option and after downloading it install it and than restart the system and this should resolved it ...
if that doesnt help it means the lens of the drive are weak u will have to get a new one
so if the system is under warrantty get a replacement from dell

Will not load

Open up your PC. And from the windows menu, left Click to open, Settings, Control panel, and the Add
Hardware wizard. From the Add hardware wizard, install your ASUS hard drive. Just follow the instructions. If you get it installed, then it a job well done. Most of the time, Asus is a supported item of Windows XP, Vista, & 7
However, if you are prompted to have your own CD to
get it installed. Just have your download from the
Internet. Just type at the Search engine blank (Free
download Asus (90N804SH021) Hard drive software
installer). Once you have your download, go back to
your PC menu. Click open, the download and follow
the instruction to have it installed. Then, have your
test on the Asus harddrive.

I have cd but my computer cant read it

It is impossible for the CD to work, unless the CD drive is defective... try other CD drives

If the CD has a lot of scratches then you need to download drivers in the internet to solve the problem...
click this link to get the driver.
Find number and choose from 55 to 59, since you did not specify your Operating System.

Fixya me if this solves the problem.... Rate me thank you if not.

Not reading CD RW

In the device manager, delete the items that have the yellow error icon, and the cd drive. Reboot your pc, you will get a message that says found new hardware, install the drivers.

If you do not have the drivers for the devices, go to and search for the drivers, download them and then follow the instructions listed above.
