Dvd rom driver

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

if you physically unplug your cd/dvd restart your computer the plug it back in the found new hardware wizard should activate

if you dont have motherboard disk you will need to download the drivers

I cannot install MyMailList and Postage Saver software, because my computer will not read the CD

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, and install it.

Or, find another computer with a working CD-reader, and a USB port.
Find a USB memory-stick with about 600MB of "free" space.
On that computer, copy "everything" from the CD-ROM to a folder on the memory-stick.
Then, move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from that folder.

My cd dvd-rom can't read cd's or burn cd's

If it is working correctly, it should read both CD and DVD disks.

If you have a "combo" drive (DVD-reader and CD reader/writer), it should burn CD disks.

If it is not working correctly, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

I bought a new game but it won't respond, I can't even read it and I get no error messages; yet my cd-rom player works all right on other cd-roms. So I thought it might need a scsi device?

It is possible that the media is a DVD disk... you can NOT read those on a plain CD rim reader... they won't even que up.

If so, buy yourself a USB DVD reader.

Windows XP MYST 10th Anniversary DVD Edition CD DVD ROM reader can not read disk format what format was used?

You will normally need the right software/program to view some formats, and I would recommend VLC media player as it does most and you can download it here for free:

My dvd/cd-rom canot play or read

Your driver has become corrupted.
Go into device manager, and delete the drive.
Download the most recent driver from the manufacturers website to a location you can find on your PC.
Restart PC.
Let windows recognize the new hardware, and point it to the file you just downloaded when it askes for driver.

Won't recognize blank dvd

Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck
