    Power off the computer .Unplug ?Open case check connections?
    See if you connected to drives?See if you connected to Harddisk
    connection? I f you messed this up? thats it? If you got this right?
    Go to Major Geeks download driver dectective? Before using check all
    properties on computer drives to see Settings DMA excetra there is a
    gotcha setting if you screw it up it won't recognize drives?Email me?

    Who hooked this up? I wouldn't know if I hadn't did it now,would I?
    The only way I know, there are others?People some of the connections in the PC look the same?Ahah, but are not, the connections that add drives are like the connections that add disks,
    or Harddrives?Although when the PC sees you hook to drives
    shazam then you added a drive not Harddisk? What I will ask each of you to do ,is see what else connects to the connectors if it is your Harddrive then connect a harddrive,OK? Same as the Dvd and DVDrw
    if the other connectors are drives floppy is included then connect a drive?This has already happened today so you get the rest of the day off.Never work when someone is rushing,busted?Email me?

In your device manager, richt-click the device and select properties. Next check if it says the device is working properly and check if the device is not disabled. If it's disabled, enable it. Otherwise tell me what it says.

My dvd rom is not working becouse an error in driver HPDVDRAM GS30


Optical drives are more forgiving.
Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

Bd rom wont eject


If it does not eject, how does it open?

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

360 desktop wit Window Xp. Hardware (CDROM -PLDS DH-16AAS DVDRW) installing problem


Two items on a single IDE ribbon cable require a master and a slave. The next step is to let BIOS know of the drive. Press F2 during boot and check. Look for it were other drives are, and there maybe a auto select / discovery option. It must show in BIOS, or there is no going forward.

If BIOS sees it and XP does not. Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Walla CD-ROM in the house.

If none of this works. Test another cable, CD-ROM, or computer. Oh yea, virus protection. Do a thorough scan. This was a common problem back in the day.

My Lenovo 3000 G410 Optiarc DVD/RW AD 7560A can t read just writed cd/dvd. But it dose not happend with the original/licence cd /dvd.


First you need to check your DVD rom drivers if it is detected in the Device manager window, Just click on Start , Control Panel, System then Device manager there you can check the list of all your devices.
  • In Device Manager look for DVD/CD-rom drives click the arrow or plus sign on the left to show he sub Menu.
  • Check to see if there are any Marks such as question marks, Exclamation Points or Red X's.
  • Hopefully there are none of any, if there is try uninstalling the driver then restart the machine it should automatically reinstall the DVD/CD-rom.
  • Now to get the not reading error, Click on Start, then on the Start Search Bar type on REGEDIT then press enter. mvincentc_35.jpg
  • This will open the Registry Editor Window.
  • In the Registry Window follow this key path = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Once the dvd/cd-rom appears a list on the Right pane window will show, on the list looke for upper and lower filters then delete both then close the registry window then restart you computer.

This should help restore you DVD/CCD-rom back to a reading state.

Have a nice day,
