Have you tried other discs? Does it read CD or recognize blank discs? Have you tried a bootable disc to see if it reads prior to Windows loading?

If the drive doesn't appear in My Computer this is a possible fix:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

Acer T180 SATA controller/bios stopped recognizing my 250GB Hard Disk. Not able to load any OS on new Hard Drives.Bios recognize the IDE DVD/RW drive.


If it just happened without any changes then it's probably a failure of the controller. You should probably check the bios just to make sure it's turned on. Also make sure there aren't any cabling problems. Your motherboard may have two controllers, a primary and secondary. Try swapping to the other cable. It's also a good excuse to get a new motherboard and cpu. The prices are really low lately.

Optical drives do not recognize disk when trying to load new disk


If you cannot read those CD-disks in _any_ computer, then the disks are "bad".

If you can read those CD-disks, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD drive. Find a smaller computer-store -- often they will remove the "dead" drive, and install the "new" drive, for $0.00, or for a small fee, if you buy the new CD/DVD-writer from them.

My TSST corp TS-H653R CD/DVD does not recognize that a


HP uses a method to determine if an optical drive has failed. Basically in a nutshell, if the drive will not read a disc, or if it will not write to one, then the drive is defective.
When the diag tool asked you to insert a "data disk" it's not asking for any particular disk, just one with data on it so that it can test itself.
if it does not recognize the disk in the machine, then try another disk. if the issues persist, the drive is definately failed.
hope this helps!
