I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

My xbox work read copy games or originals


Did you try to flash the X-BOX drive with the j-tag exploit, if yes then it must have not run successfully , if you have not dont do it as it will just ruin your console if you donot know what you are doing. Try using a Cd-Lens cleaner as your DVD-Lens might be dirty and could be a cause. Does the disk spin when it is inserted into the drive ?

Clear your system cacheIf your Xbox 360 console can't play multiple game discs, try clearing your system cache. Here's how:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Memory.
  3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
  4. Select Clear System Cache.

    Note If Clear System Cache is not available, follow the steps in Clearing the System Cache (http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/hardware/clear-system-cache.aspx) .
  5. Try to play a game disc.

Disconnect memory units or USB flash drives
  1. Turn off your console.
  2. Unplug any memory units or USB flash drives attached to your console.
  3. Turn on your console.
  4. Try playing a game.
If all these fail try this

Good day! I have a P4B ASUS Motherboard quiet older since its memory is SDRAM with 2.26 MHz processor installed with Windows XP Professional 2, the thing is a day comes that when I tried to boot it, it can...


Sounds like your CD drive is having a Read issue. If it works fine in another unit, it should work fine in this old unit too. But there are chances of drives of different brands having different read write capacities. For Example, some major brands in the market wouldnt read a CD which is having slight issues, while some ordinary brands of CD drives will read the same disk. I have experienced this couple of times. Here i have an option for you. Put the CD in another unit, copy the entire files to the HDD of that unit using xcopy command..
At Dos Command Prompt...

Xcopy <Source> <Destination> /s /e

You will get all the data on the disk copied to the destination folder.

Write another fresh CD with RW speed at 8X or 16X and get it burned with this data..

Remember, that the data which is on original should be written on to the new CD the same way.

Try to install with the newly written CD, and you will surely get rid of this issue. I am advicing you to make a complete new CD using the other box which can read this disk, as there could be chances of more files not being read if you use this original CD on this unit which has trouble. Do write back if you need any further assistance. Thanks for your Troubleshooting request. Good Luck.

Acer 5102 with xp, It wont boot from cd.


Make the DVD your 1st option for booting. It's also your CD drive but is identified as the DVD RW. Once this is made your default (make sure you accept and save the change before exiting) with your installation disk in the drive, boot up and it will read off the disk and prepare your system for install. If your disk is bootable, this will work.

Good morning! please try to check from the Device Manager if your CD drive is enabled & working properly, if not we have to reinstall the driver, then after reinstalling the driver if still it doesn't read the inserted CD, then try to install a new CD Drive unit -if it works then the previous CD drive unit is defective. best regards

Does not recognize/play DVD - shows "NO DISK"


If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in syncronisation.you can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.

Can't install Adobe InDesign CS3 for Windows


Try using the Windows Explorer (if Windows system, if you're on a Mac I think its the Finder) and see if you can access the CD from there. For some reason it's not reading the CD, make sure it's not upside down (duh!) and not dirty (unlikely). If you have multiple CD's make sure it's the Setup CD you are inserting. If you have multiple CD Drives try the other one. That's al I can think of. Good luck!
