Use a head cleaner cd to clean the head of your cd drive. your cd drive is having a hardware problem so its not opening you can use a pin to open it while pressing the eject button. There will be a small hole near eject button.

Tip

Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Eject the CD/DVD Drive


Create a Shortcut to Eject the CD/DVD Drive
Right-click on the desktop or elsewhere and choose New \ Shortcut.
In the location box, put the full path to the nircmd.exe file that you downloaded, and append the "cdrom open" command to the end of it, adjusting the drive letter to match your disc drive:
"C:\path\to\nircmd.exe" cdrom open D:
Note the location of the quotes.. if you are using a path with spaces in it, you need to make sure the quotes are only around the path to the executable, and the arguments should be placed after the quote.
Give the shortcut a meaningful name, like Eject CD or something like that, and you'll have a new icon (read below on how to use the cd-rom icon as shown)
Create a Shortcut to Close the CD/DVD Drive
You can follow the same exact instructions as above, but instead of "cdrom open" just substitute "cdrom close".
Assign a Hotkey to the Shortcut
Now that we have a shortcut, we can assign a hotkey to the shortcut by right-clicking on the icon and choosing Properties. On the Shortcut tab you'll see a place to assign the Shortcut key:

My cd isnt being read on my computer


Hello there,

Have you tried isolating the problem by putting other CDs on that cdrom? If the other cds are not being read as well, then the cdrom's lens needs cleaning.

But if its only one cd that cannot be read, then it might probably be dirty. Try cleaning it with a soft sponge containing liquid diswasher and gently rub thru the disc's surface in a circular manner.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

My driver for sony cd rom cdu5211 is lost and now my CD ROM is not reading any type of CD.


It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

Any decent computer shop or Radio Shack will supply you with a CD-Rom

They are very cheap now

I would go for a DVD burner combo again you are talking very little in the way of cash

Not reading cds


hi

the lens may have been damaged. what you can do is physically open your cdrom and manually check for the lens. as you open the cdrom panel, be very careful as it would damage the chips inside. as soon as you see the lens, check it first by looking at it and look for dust and residues. clean it thoroughly and try to insert a cd now if it works,

hope this will help.

:)
