Please go to control panel--system--hardware-device manager.

here expand clicking the + sign on cd/dvd rom drives. You will find names of the drives on your system. Just right click on it select uninstall. press apply, ok,. then restart the computer. Windows will automatically detect right drivers for your dvd and problem may be solved. If not replace the dvd.

You will need to download the latest driver for your CD/DVD Player.

My cd/dvd combo driver will no longer burn discs


Instead of looking for repair programs, try looking for drivers for that specific cd/dvd drive. It may simply need a new driver.

Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?

Cd BURNER


You can do that and it should take care of your problem. Most likely somehow or another (can happen with different software titles[for burning]) your upper and lower filters in the registry became corrupted and this is why your CD/DVD drive are not working properly. With the Media Card Reader, usually if you uninstall the USB Root hub in device manager (which it is on) there will be a few of them. Let the computer re-install the driver it will take care of this issue.

CD/DVD stopped working...device driver unable to be loaded.


Try cleaning the lense / As well install correct driver also; If nothing works out best alternative is to replace the CD/DVD rom with new or working once.

you are probably using a DVD media that is not supported
take a look at this it tells you all the supported and recommended media, also do the firmware upgrade as this may give more support to other media

thanks for rating
