Try known good disk. Other than that the unit has probably failed. Make sure disks can be read on a buddys computer?

Cd/rom not working


Try deleting it in the device manager and then reboot your computer to see if it will detect it, then when it asks, point it to the driver.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

Okay. Restart your computer and after, go to device manager (right-click on My Computer/Properties/Material/Device manager). Do you see a CD-Rom/DVD drive?

My PC


Maybe your cd cannot be read anymore by your CD drive.
be sure that the cd is cleaned and no crack traces on it.
Please try another a very new CD/DVD to see if the CD drive can read.

if read then, your cd is damage. but there is some CD drive that cannot read some cd disc. You should select maybe the cd rom compatibility.
