Hi I have a G640 model laptop, when I am trying to download to disc the drive seems to be making a very loud noise when the disc is being read, could you please help or offer any advice? Thanks


Does the disk get scratched when you take it out?
What is the loud noise like exactly? One continuous long scrrrr noise, or something like a tapping noise?
By download, you are referring to burning? Do the disks come out working fine and readable by other devices or computers?

You can try to put in a disk cleaner disk, such as :http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-DVD-LC-Lens-Cleaner-Blue/dp/B00000JPPI/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1308503466&sr=1-7
You can find disk cleaner things like that in bestbuy or radioshack. I am referring to cleaning the disk drive lens, not the disk itself.

Try to use a different disk brand, and if all else fails, I suggest giving it back via warranty, as most likely it is a mechanical problem with the drive itself, in which case you would not be able to fix it yourself unless you take it apart and try to find what is making the noise, which could take a while depending on your experience with electronics.

My cd drive isn't working at all. I am trying to install my Norton Internet Security 2011


Go into your control panel and under device manager look to see if it is listed in there and no exclamation marks beside it. Also try another disk just to rule out a defective disk

My dvd drive is not recognizing any cd or dvd. it is since 1 and 1/2 months. even i cannot erite any dvd and cd. plz sir tell me some solution for it.


Make sure the light on the drive is coming on when you insert a disk. I am assuming that drive tray opens and closes when you press the button and that you are not opening the tray manually or forcing it open. Try to spray some compressed air into the drive with the tray open incase anything is interferring with the laser. Has anyone been inside the computer lately that may have disconnected a cable from the back of the drive? Not to be funny, but make sure you are inserting the disk right side up. You may just have to buy a new drive.

My CD Player for a [Compaq] Presario V3000 hasn't been working. It worked fine less than a year ago, then it stopped working. My Computer doesn't show the CD icon any longer, not even Device Manager seems...


It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.
Any computer-store technician can easily "manually" open your current drive, and remove the CD/DVD media.

Same problem


you may have a label or even the metal slide piece stuck in the mechanism. Take it to a computer shop so you dont do more damage trying to open it. Some CD drives have a small reset hole on the front that when an open paper clip is inserted it allows rejection but if a lable is stuck it needs specialized intervention, especially for the 3.5 drive that has metal slide from disk jammed in it

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

CD rom drive wont open!!!


Hi, it only means that the drive is already damage and you need to contact the manufacturer of your computer and verifiy if your computer is stil under warranty so that they can replace the drive with no additional cost but for some reason if you have physically damage the drive then you will be charge for the said repair so it depends on the warranty of the computer.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks
