CD/DVD ROM not working properly

I've had this laptop since 2003. Recently, the CD-ROM drive will occasionally flicker out of service in the middle of an active Windows session. The only way to remedy this is to power down the system, wait, then reboot. Even then, that doesn't always work. I've removed the device from the device manager in Windows, and a reboot shows it coming up again. Unfortunately, the issue remains. I originally thought that this might be a Windows issue, and, since my system is long overdue for an overhaul and I'd like to switch to Linux, I tried to boot into either a Live CD distro or a boot CD. Even though the BIOS is set to boot from CD first, it skips right past and goes directly to the hard drive. I am completely unable to even reinstall an OS on this system. I figure that this is now a hardware issue, but if anyone has ideas on what I can do to further troubleshoot, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has any spare drives lying around cheap, or can recommend an inexpensive replacement, that would be great. Thanks, Larry

Hey as long as it was an original Windows disc you tried booting off of, as copys will not boot off the cd alot of the time, it sounds like the cdrom drive is at fault, a new one will set you back about 40pounds maybe 60 dollars i use www.ebuyer.co.uk but thats a uk site, you should try www.ebay.com or amazon. to maybe get a good deal... All the best John

My dvd drive is not working it is not showing its on my computer folder.I am using windows 7 recently i had this problem so can u help me ..


make sure both the power pin and sata pin are connected properly ,if both the wires are connected properly and still having the problem goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

I"ve lost my (E:Drive)


Welcome to Fixya

This can happen due to Three problems.

1) Might have disabled the DVD rom. To check this, Goto control panel->DeviceManager->CD/DVD Rom. Where you can enable/disable the device.

2) The Drivers for the DVD rom may not be installed or may be corrupted. Please use the drivers cd or visit the dell site to update the drivers.

3) The CD DVD Drive may be loosely connected. If can risk at opening the chasi and try connecting it properly

The system may need to be restarted if you perform any of the above activities.

Rate the solution appropriately.

DVd-rom replaced but not working properly


check the copyright settings on it, most dvd's have that so people don't bootleg it and re-sell it, check to see if there is any scratches on it, check for dirt, or take it to customer support and get a new one
