DIsk drive ejects disk tray after 10 or so seconds. It will shut itself again, then eject again. This happens when I put in a DVD, not sure if it'll happen with a CD yet.

Reinstall the driver running it... go to "Device Manager" and right click on the cd-rom icon and select Properties. in that section you will find the options for handling the driver software...

The CD drive will not register any game dics. The computer is the 52x model. How do I solve this problem?

probably unaligned position or irritated lens....... try to disassemble the CD housing, realigned the lens holder by pushing it to the rear end of the Disk Drive, then clean the lens with clean cotton buds with alcohol, let it dry by cleaning it with the dry clean cotton buds.... reasseble the housing... reconnect to PC.... re-detect the CD-ROM at the BIOS Set-up and....... Wella....... Goodluck!!

I have a CD "tray" in a audio CD player that is

Have you have tried shutting down the pc, and then turning it back on? if that has forced it to close the drive, it's likely dead.
there is a chance the power cable fell off the back, but it's unlikely.

If it's dead then you'll probably need to swap it for a new one. Best to take the old one out and down your local computer shop, pc world, dixons, or something.

I reckon it's an EIDE drive cos of the 52x CD-ROM indicating it's age, so it'll have two connectors, a flat ribbon and a white power connector. Just make sure you get a replacement with the same connections.
Most new drives will be SATA and incompatible.

Unable to rip music with Windows Media Player 11 and Creative Labs CD5223E

I had this CD Rom drive in my older PC (200 MHz). I was able to rip audio CD's to MP3 with no problem. I used the program Cool Edit Pro. I would look to see if it's a setting with your sound card. Check to see if there are any settings that select the recording source. There has to be a path set up to record from the CD rom. With cables, you might also try taking the audio out from the sound card and feeding that into the audio in port on the sound card.

I guess you could try running and soldering new individual wires, from point to point where they come fromand go to... or try to obtain a replacement cable part from drive manufacturer. But with CD's being so inexpensive is it worth the time and hassle? I myself would get a new one.

Connection Problems

If you have other Optical Drive in your computer like a CDwriter then installed it where that LG 52x CDROM drive. Observe if the same problem occur after 2 or 3 hours. Try connecting the CDROM drive to the IDE ports (Secondary IDE port) like setting its jumper to Master. Ensure that the connection to its power supply is firm. Change the setting of your POWER OPTIONS which is under the CONTROL PANEL and change the setting for TURN-OFF HARD DISK to NEVER.
