Which cd drive


If you post the Gateway Model Number it would be helpful. Do you have one or two drives? Is the drive in the Computer folder? If so, you can right click the Icon, select Properties, select Hardware tab, your DVD/CD Rom will be listed, copy the DVD/CD Rom part number, Google search the part number.

I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

I can't install cd's on computer


It is my pleasure to guide you.

Go to the Control Panel > double click the System icon > Hardware tab > Device Manager >
Look for your CD Rom in the DVD/CD drives listing, press the + sign to open it.

You should see two drives, if you have two CD Rom drives. Double click on one at a time. This opens the Properties of the drive. The Device status should say it is working properly. If it does not say that, close properties and right click the drive and uninstall. Close out everything and reboot. Windows may ask to reboot, say yes.

After boot up Windows should re-intall the CD Rom drive drivers. After all is done, try the CD Rom again.

Good luck and please post back that you are successful or that I can be more helpful.

Hi I have cf-19 I need to install mapping software that requires a resident cd drive to install. Will any usb cd/dvd drive work?


As long as it is a plug&play drive it should work just fine. It's hard to install a USB CD/DVD Drive that isn't plug&play.

My cd dvd drive is not open , tell me about cd drive open


First you need to provide more details, it's not open when the computer it's running, when the computer it's shut down...in first case you can go right click on the cd-dvd drive in my computer, and click the EJECT task, in the second case(can be used in the first one also) you can just insert a paper clip in to the tiny hole on the cd-dvd, and press the paper clip..it will mechanical open the cd-dvd drive. If you have a laptop, some models, like IBM, Gateway have on the back of the laptop a small button, liket he battery one that you can press and the cd-dvd will pump by itself.Good luck. www.nydatapc.com for more help.

There should be a lock/screw on the bottom of the PC that will realease the old unit. If you are unsuccessful a local PC shop can do it for around $25 and maybe while you wait.
