If I understand this correctly, you erased a cd of data and want it restored?

If this is true, then I am sorry to tell you that you will not be able to get that cd data back.

Hi! I have a webcam easyCam Pro HO98669 Ver.1 and my computer doesn't recognise the cd with the driver. What can I do?


Ok it isn't unusual for a CD ROM or DVD ROM to not recognize a CD or DVD insert to it..Ok try this clean the lenses of your ROM using a CD or DVD cleaner disc if you have also try to wept your cd software with a clean dry soft cloth or cotton..If this will not work perhaps you need a new installation cd for your webcam.

How do i install this drive?


Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.


Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.





Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

I have a problem about my LG dvd rom drd 8160b I want to update my driver because other tape cant read


For less than $50, you can get a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer. So, rather than spending $50 to try to "fix" your DVD-reader, just replace it.

Desktop DVD fails to recognize "commercial" DVDs


Hello my friend,i can think only 2 things.The first thing is the region code.So right-click My Computer then select Properties,select the Hardware tab,click the Device Manager button and go to DVD/CD-ROM drives,double click to open the tree.Then choose your dvd burner and double click or right click and properties to open the dvd properties.Go to the dvd region code and select the code/country that the dvd supports and click OK.Also you can download a program called region free.The second thing is that your drive supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM so if the disc is something else then is not supported by your reader/burner.
