Now, if everything fails, maybe it's a mechanical or electronic problem with your device. I had this problem with my player and simply, eplaced it with an MP3 player.. Store in my 8 Gb prendrive about 6000 files. I use a bitrate of 48 kbps VBR in WMA (most MP3 players recognize Windows Media Audio format, delivering a better sound) more then enough for a perfect playback needed for casual listening while I drive.

I need help getting my Cd/dvd drive to recognize when media is placed in it


Hi There and Welcome to FixYa!

If your CD/DVD drive is not reading any discs, then we have to determine if it's a software problem or not. Here are the steps :
  • Make sure that your computer is turned on and there's no media inside the cd/dvd drive.
  • Close all running programs except for a web browser.
  • Click on this LINK and choose "Run Now".
  • It will download the Microsoft optical drive fix tool into your computer - wait until the download completes.
  • Run the application and restart your computer afterwards.
  • Try 2 to 3 known good media in your CD/DVD drive.
After completing the above steps and the problem is still evident, then I would recommend for optical drive replacement. For more helpful information about this product and on how to contact their helpdesk phone support, please visit the below link :

My Windows XP Media Center computer can't recognize my CDs, DVDs, or PC games. It's not that the CD won't go in, its just that my computer doesn't know it exists. I checked the inside and all the chords...


unplug it (data cable), start the computer, when loaded to windows shut down again and plug the drive back in. Also try a different port if you can. Drives don't last forever and they are very cheap so if you can't get it to work get a new one.

My dvd drive has started acting up. It no longer recognizes -dvd.


Hello,

It has been my experience with Lite-On to be a great optical drive replacement. In the 10 years I've been in business, Lite-On has been my top choice for pcs. If you continue to have problems try a different BRAND of blank DVD media.

Good Luck

HP CD/DVD optical drive is not recognized


I found that there was a firmware conflict caused by the installation of iTUNES. I uninstalled and cleared the upper and lower filters in the registry and the internal DVD-Rom is recognized. First I cleared the registry and the drive was recognized after a hard boot. So Far no twitches. Knock on wood.
