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.

Compaq presario cd-rw/dvd-rom combo drive does not recognize dvds. the driver is installed but dvds do not play.


you may check youe BIOS settings by restarting the pc and repeatedly press F2. Then check your PC or system settings wherein there is a list of peripherals such as Floppy Disk, CD/DVD drive, Network Adapter etc. Those peripherals will tell you if they are enabled or not. use your arrow keys to select and check if the CD/DVD drive is enabled. Then press F10 to exit and hope that CD/DVD would work...

Computer will not boot up. Got message on DOS screen that says: "Primary Master Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T. Status Bad. WARNING: Immediate back-up your data and replace your hard drive."


Sounds like you have a hard drive failure. Get your recovery disk out if you have one, install a new drive and reinstall. If you had not backed up your data you may be too late. There are services but they are expensive.

Compaq CD Drive


It appears that the CD drive has failed. My DVD drive did that and I ended up replacing it. They have become fairly inexpensive. You can replace your CD drive with a DVD/RW drive for about $30. I like to use www.spoofee.com to find cheap computer components. Just check back regularly and a DVD/RW drive should show up.

Compaq Presario 5360 Cd rom is Full


A CD-ROM drive is a read-only drive. It will always says there is 0 usable space, since you cannot write to it. You need to have a CD-Writer in order to add content to either a CD-R or CD-RW disc. You would get the "not accessible" error message if there is no media in the drive. If you place a disc in the drive, that message should go away.
