A while ago, my laptop's DVD drive stopped reading CDs. A after a few attempts , it displays the CD/DVD as an empty one. The CDs are not empty or too scratched because I tried them on a different computer...


Hello there!

Please note that a CD-ROM drive can read and in some cases write to a CD inserted into it. This is done by means of a fragile laser mechanism that scans the surface of the disc as it spins at high speed inside the drive. Drive failure can occure from a scratched laser eye, mechanical failure, overheating, or simply years of use. You will want to ensure the drive is actually broken before buying a new one as replacement or send it for a repair.

Please follow these easy steps:

1. Open the CD drive tray and insert a CD. If you have a tray that opens by pushing a button, push the button. For slot drives, try to slide the CD in. On slot drives, if the CD will not go in fully, the drive is not getting power.

2. Wait and listen for a "whirring" sound from the drive after the CD is in and the drive tray is pushed in. This may take a few seconds.

3. Look at the status light on the front of the drive if one is present. It should be blinking to indicate that the device is reading the CD.

4. Replace the first CD with another one in case the first CD is damaged or unreadable. Repeat steps 1 through 3 with the second CD.

5. Wait to see if anything comes up on the pc screen indicating the CD is being read or run. A notification may appear asking if you want to play the CD or run the software. This indicates a functioning drive.

6. Click on "Start" followed by "My Computer" and locate the CD-ROM drive usually labeled as "D:/" or "E:/". Double click on it. If the CD drive makes no noise or an error message appears on screen indicating the disc can not be read, the drive may be broken.

If an error message appears indicating that the CD-Rom drivers are missing this may indicate a software issue and not a broken drive.

Regards,
fossildude

How difficult is it to replace a CD-ROM drive in a MacBook Pro?


The fact that you realized replacement might be the best option and sought out advice tells me you are intelligent by nature. On a difficulty scale of 1-10 I would rate this in the 6-7 range. Someone like you would probably have very little trouble with this project. I have sent countless step by step instructions over the internet & through email but it seems like the best results always come from an in-depth tutorial, This way you can see EVERY step and even rewind if you're not sure about something. Powerbookmedic.com has a wonderful tutorial on the 17" MacBook Pro breakdown and optical drive (cd/dvd) removal. Just remember to always start with taking the battery out and be very careful about electrostatic shock. You should be fine on a hard surface but I don't recommend fabric/carpet surfaces once you open it up. Here is the link for your laptop. The videos will play in succession automatically. Good luck, you'll do just fine! If you run into trouble, just message back and I will be glad to walk you through it: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/stats/macbook_pro_2.16_17.html

It is possible that the lens of the drive has gone bad and you will have to replace the drive to fix the issue.

Cd rom replace


Check under the battery compartment and check if any labels are covering any screw holes. Further, there might be internal clips holding the bottom in place as well.

You might be better served by just getting an inexpensive laptop considering how cheap they are right now.

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn


First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
