Is the Drive detected in the BIOS? Can you boot from your XP or any bootable disc? If so try this solution:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting


check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

All drive not detected


Check your power supply that its working or not. If its working then

Please check all the cable inside your system and then try attaching 1 by 1 i.e. attach first hard disk and than start your machine and see that it is detecting or not.

If its detecting then attach cd-rom and start your machine.
If its not detecting then remove hard disk and attach CD-ROM only.

If CD-ROM is also not detected then there is problem with your cable.

The CD-ROM (Drive:G)


First check it is detected in bios,if not check the power and data cables to the cd rom from motherboard.If its ok,this is a driver problem.I Think the vendor has given you  a cdrom nero.First boot from a windows 98 cdrom,after that put the nero cd .You can find one folder "driver" or "cdrom",change into the directory and install.Reboot your system it will be okay.

CDROM and with a bootable CD is not been detected


Same solution as posted before if you need to boot from a DVD: take a Dell laptop CD/DVD combo drive, remove the screws and all and exchange the PowerVault CD drive unit with it. Same internal connector. Can't remember what model I stuck in, but I had to keep the front panel of the drive since it was slightly different, I probably could have glued it, but.... That's a server machine no one is ever going to see but me! :)

That also gave me a CD-Burner which is a decent addition in case you need to quickly burn a CD/make a backup/boot disk (like a "ultimate Windows CD" boot to fix anything that could go wrong).

Connection Problems


If you have other Optical Drive in your computer like a CDwriter then installed it where that LG 52x CDROM drive. Observe if the same problem occur after 2 or 3 hours. Try connecting the CDROM drive to the IDE ports (Secondary IDE port) like setting its jumper to Master. Ensure that the connection to its power supply is firm. Change the setting of your POWER OPTIONS which is under the CONTROL PANEL and change the setting for TURN-OFF HARD DISK to NEVER.

My cd rom is not shown/detected by my computer. The computer says no cd rom connected,but all the connections are intact,


Have you set the jumpers at the back of the cdrom to slave if you already have another peice of hardware on the same idr cable, if not and only the cdrom is in the ide cable it should be set to master. Also check the bios to see if it is recognised, press F2 or DEL on start up and see if it's there under standard bios settings.

CD/DVD ROM disappears


I would think either your IDE cable is faulty or the IDE connector on the motherboard, try swapping cables or use a double IDE cable on IDE 1 connector. You may have a faulty drive ide connection input in which case a new DVD Rom is the answer, only cheap nowadays.
