Right click on my computer and then select properties. Then select Device Manager. Locate the Optical Drive and then right click it and delete it. Reboot the computer and then it will reinstall the driver when the computer boots. Should take care of it.

My acer aspire 5315 cd/dvd disappeared from my computer, i try to find it on device manager is not there too. i tried to restart the computer, nothing happened, also i put a disc in the drive to see if it...


If it isn't detecting it when you reboot then it sounds like the cdrom itself died. You'll need to replace it with a new one or get an external one that runs on USB.

Cdrom driver not working


You don't update the bios unless you change to a newer processor,
that isn't supported by the version you have, if you find the system
is less stable then before, reflash to the old Bios.


There is no download for a cd or dvd rom, you only have downloads for chipset, graphics, sound, touchpads, ethernet, and a few other things.

Cd, dvd roms, use windows drivers,So you don't have to look for drivers.
There is something wrong with the unit, if you can plug in any other
cd or dvd and see if it works, to rule out motherboard problem.

If it works, you can see if is under warranty or you will have to get a new one.

Any questions, post back.

Toshiba satellite A205 - cd/dvd drive doesn't work


Hi there.

The CD/DVD drive uses Class Filter Drivers. These have probably been currupted or are missing. All you should need to do, is re-install the Chipset Drivers (Intel).

Here's the link:

Let me know if that works.

Acer aspire 5610 dvdram wont recognize any cd/dvds i put in it


To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click StartStart button, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
User Account Control permission If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-
08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer

Thinkpad T40 DVD player


I would start with B, reinstall drivers and DVD decoding software. If that doesn't do the trick then it's definitely C. Failed DVD with CD capability is a common problem.

Cd/dvd drive not working


You need to update the drivers for the drive because its external what the installation of XP did was to except it as the drive to install but what it did not do was to install also on your hard drive the external CDrom. You need to do it manually....go here: http://drivers.myfreewares.com/driverdownload.php
