Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error


Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

Any EIDE (non Sata) interal drive should work on this computer. However, first I would check the internal cables on the drive to ensure the are plugged in tight (you may just have a loose cable). Check both the mother board end and the drive end.

Personally I would go puppy linux over 98, but that is me.

Hope this helps, have a great day and good luck.

I can't insert any cd's.


Maybe the laser eye is jammed. It tracks back and forth reading data from the disc.
You may either replace the drive or have it repaired.
I had one on my PC do the same vibrating, clicking noise. It only cost 40.00 to replace.
But for a laptop, you're looking between 60-100 dollars to replace.
You can see how much it would cost to repair first, but my guess is it would be cheaper to replace.

My cd rom/dvd drive will not read any disc


Hi,
Check the cd-rom power is on or not. Then also if its not reading then Insert an DVD/CD cleaner disk and follow the steps. The cleaner disk is available in any of the computer shops. There may be some lens problem. After trying above steps if again same problem occurs then you need to replace the cd/dvd rom drive. Thank you.........

Dvd fault


your laser is faulty and is only able to read cd tracks, the reason being that dvd's data is packed closer together than a cd, and when the laser is failing it can only read wider burned data tracks on cd's.

You will have to replace the drive
