Does not recognize the cd in reinstalling Windows

While downloading something an error appeared, after that my cd player stopped working.

I thought I could solve the problem by formatting and re-installing Windows but I could not because the cd was NOT recognized.

HELP!

You don't need to re-install the whole system you'll just have to uninstall to player and find a new installer through microsoft.com and search for the media player version that you want

Cd burning error


If possible, use a second CD player/burner to burn a CD. If can't borrow one, either internal or external (USB), they are fairly cheap second hand. I suspect your CD player has become defective, maybe only in burn mode. Can you burn anything (eg, software) using this item ? ie is it only iTunes that's affected ?

Download cd driver for a gateway nv54 laptop


Your operating system shouldn't need a new driver for that. CD drives are recognized configured automatically. You can try cleaning the laser lens on the CD Drive with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you'll need to replace the drive.

Cannot reinstall Windows on my Hp Compaq nc6000


I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the cd...it took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally worked...you might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

IBM R32 ultrabay is not recognized


Did you leave the battery in the R32 for long enough for it to charge up? (Like overnight?) Another thought is that if you bought the battery used, it may not be any good.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.
