How can i tell if my cd dvd drive is stuffed or not programed properlly. I have down loaded update still not wokin Please help

Go to Control Panel....Devise Manager .....find you CD/DVD player on the on it ......there should be a option to replace the DRIVER for this device. If there is a yellow exclaimation point next to your CD/DVD player it is probably bad IF you have installed and reinstalled the programing several times and it still does work. On a rare ocassion Windows Update can fowl a player. Very LAST thing to try is roll back the latest Update. You might also try doing a System Restore to a point before the CD/DVD player went out.

Window vista dvd drive

The drive could have burned out and stopped. I would try the drive on another computer if it is an external drive or I would take to a tech place.

WIndows Vista, trying to reinstall but CD with OS not working...

It sounds like the CD is faulty. Can you take it to a local PC shop & ask them to check it for you? Also, try cleaning the CD - I have come across drives which wouldn't read a disc if it had a very visible fingerprint on it.
