Question about PC Desktops
I re-installed my cd/dvd drive after the DMA turned off. The DMA is back on but now the drive will not recognise blank dvd's (+R or -R). The drive will play dvd movies but when i put in a blank dvd it recognises it as a blank cd on the cd drive. I have checked the cables in the drive and they are plugged in fine. I have also removed all my burning software and tried to delete the upper and lower filters but their are none there ( I followed the instructions from the HP Compaq website). Any ideas how to fix this??
Thanks my dvd wont recognise any disc written or blamk
Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
if this fails to fix the problem
It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it if this fails you
might try cleaning the lens it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying If you take a little risk can solve . follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply. 1. When running your pc , open the drawer.> 2. switch off the ac power 3. remove power cable & sata or pata cable 4. remove all the screw from the back side 5. press clip to open the font panel 6. reverse the cd/dvd rw 7. just remove the cover 8. clean the optical lance 9. use a little( not much )oil place on two steel shaft 10.cover all the equipment 11.now you can fit to your pc Ifit does the same problem please change the cd/dvd rw because the lance has defected
hope this helps
