My Cd-RW works mechanically but it will not read or recognize my cds. Under the driver it had an error message saying that the system could not load the driver.


1. Click Start
2. Right-click My Computer
3. Select Manage
4. Select Device Manager
5. Locate and expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives
6. Right click on the device and select Uninstall

Navigate to your product manufacturer's site and download the latest driver to your desktop.

Restart your machine, let Windows rediscover the device and when prompted to install manually or automatically, select the manual option and use the driver you just downloaded to your desktop.

This should solve the problem. If not, the reader might have malfunctioned, which would explain the drive's ability to spin the disc but not read it.

A CD-Rom will only recognize CD's. It must be a DVD-ROM to recognize DVD's. DVD-ROM will recognize CD's ,but not the other way around. No drivers needed for thes, they are plug and play.
