Computer not finding hardware for cd rom drive, so not responding

My cd rom always worked until one day I put in a cd and didn't do anything when I checked the device manager there was an exclamation mark on the cd rom drive, so I tried the troubleshooter and said it's not finding hardware, it might be corrupted or missing, so I bought a new cd drive and it said the same thing so I don't know what to do.
somebody help.

CD Driver not work


Hi there,

When you said CD driver are you referring to the Compact Disk which contains data of the drivers for your computer?

If that cannot be recognized by your computer you can always go to the website of your computer manufacturer and download the drivers that you need.

OR

Are you referring to the cd drive of your machine?

If you are what's exactly happening? does it not recognize a certain CD or anything you put in cannot be recognized?

Computer no recognize CD-ROM Drive


If it is a "swappable" device, then first shut-down your computer. Remove the other device that currently is installed in the drive-bay. Insert the CD-ROM drive, and restart your computer, so that it can detect the "new" hardware.

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer


It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

CD - ROM


If you haven't tried reinstalling the drive, this may help:
- Open the Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Click on Device Manager
Locate the DVD-CD-ROM entry and expand it. Highlight your optical drive and press 'Delete'
If it argues with you, answer 'Yes' to the question of deleting the drive(s)
Reboot your computer and watch for a message box reading that a 'New Device' was found and software for it is being installed.
If it still doesn't want to cooperate, then the drive is probably 'toast' and will need to be replaced.
