Check to see if it shows up in device manager first. Once you click on it in device manager go to properties and see if you have any code error. I had a cod 19 on mine. I did exactly what they said and in less than 10 minutes I had my cds back. Good luck.
This solution is for the following error codes 31, 32, 19, 39 and 41 shown in device manager in device status.
If your cd or dvd drive isnt working properly but you can see it in the device manager, and it has worked before.
And if you have tryed uninstalling it, updateing drivers and so on and it hasnt worked?
Then I suggest you try remoteing the lower and upper filters from your windows registery as they most likely are the problem.
here are the instructions in plain text
Click the Start button, press run and type regedit.
In the Registry Editor window, in the left pane, double-click the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder.
In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, double-click the System folder.
In the System folder, double-click the CurrentControlSet folder.
In the CurrentControlSet folder, double-click the Control folder.
In the Control folder, double-click the Class folder.
In the Class folder, click to select the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} folder.
In the right pane, click to select the UpperFilters registry value.
Press Del / Delete to remove the registery entry.
In the Confirm Value Delete dialog box, click the Yes button.
In the right pane, click to select the LowerFilters registry value.
Press Del / Delete to remove the registery entry.
In the Confirm Value Delete dialog box, click the Yes button.
close the regedit window.

Dell inspiron 1525 blank dvd r not regognized


You will need to use a different brand of blank DVD-R disc, some DVD-R disc will not work with some optical drives. Try using a Sony or Phillips DVD-R discs, these two brands work best.

MY CDRW DELL DIMENSION 5150 BURNER ISNT


im not sure what cdrw isnt doing so i will have to guess
your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd-rw/dvd rom burner then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
make sure that the cd-dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.




hope this helps

LG GH22LP20 has audio skipping on DVDs and CDs


Do you have skipping on every DVD/CD you burn? If so, then you're probably experiencing what's called 'buffer underrun'. When that happens, the burner writes faster than the computer can send it information, resulting in skipping. In the program you use, look for the 'burn options' and change the speed from 'automatic' to a manual, slower setting. That should fix your problem.

Burner is detected but ...


Hello preto,

What you probably have is bad lens. This is the main reason why DVD/Cd drives stop reading discs. You will have to replace the lens and it will be all right.
