    I have the same issue. I'm pretty sure that when I picked out everything I wanted included in my laptop, I just forgot to select that one. Perhaps you did the same?

My cd rom does not read any cd,when i look for its properties than it says that your device is working properly,why is it so,kindly help me


Verify that the cds you try to get it read are good and possibly check them in another cd rom.
Try cleaning it with a CD-ROM lens cleaner (can be purchased at a local computer store).
Remove it by pressing a lock below the laptop. Follow the instructions for removal in the manual of your laptop. If you cannot do this then take it to a repair shop. The person will assist you in removing it and can fix it.
If the lens is damaged or there is other heavy damage then consider buying a new one.

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.

R40 DVD Read Problem


Unable to read a CD-R or other recordable disc. DVD recordable discs - If you have a DVD recordable disc and are unable to get it to read verify that the DVD drive is not a Gen 1 DVD drive and/or that it .


Computer DVD Support The DVD technology is very different from the technology used in standard CD-ROM drives. DVD uses shorter wavelength lasers to read smaller pits and lands.


Computer CD-ROM drive help and technical information. However, DVD-RAM discs cannot be read by standard DVD-ROM drives because of the differences in both reflectivity of the medium and the data format.
