I had the same problem with my Y510. I downloaded the BIOS update from Lenovo, and after I updated it, the DVD drive displayed.

... and no drivers came with the drive either? Do you have the restore CD/DVD provided by Lenovo? I'm guessing this was a pre-installed OS and all files came on the HDD. When you installed Windows 7, you lost the path to the std Lenovo drivers... or wiped/formatted the HDD and lost everything? Can you pull the DVD drive out of the bay and see who makes it? Lenovo does NOT make DVD ;-) I'll bet it is a std Yeasu, Phillips or Samsung/Sony and with the model# and your OS info you will be able to get generic drivers for it

Good Luck
...As an example, my Top of Line HP has Sanyo drive ;-)

My dvd rom icon not show or doesn't install dvd rom driver...from where we will get lenovo y410 dvd rom driver


Hi errajeev_iit,

The CD/DVD Driver is an Operating System generic Driver and it can be re-installed from the Device Manager. Please press with Window Logo and the R Keys on your Keyboard to open the Run window, then type devmgmt.msc and press the Enter Key to open the Device Manager. After that, on the Open Device Manager window, please click the "Actions" menu and select the Scan for Hardware changes option. This will re-install the CD/DVD Drive Driver in the Computer.

Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cd driver is not working properly


You can try to clean the laser lens with alcohol and a q-tip. Other than that, you have to have them serviced or buy another one. CD's have some moving parts that can wear after awhile, and also the electronics is very sensitive, and can get out of kilter, so when that happens, they have to have parts replaced.

NOT ABLE TO BURN THE C.D & D.V.D


Y510 uses the slot loading DVD, right? It's not software problem... that Matsushita DVD drive on Y510 and Y410 are faulty... they work only for a few months then always have trouble burning. I've seen many complaints on Lenovo support forum... I'm having the same problem with my Y410 too... I had to use USB to install Windows 7.

MY DVD/CD DRIVER IS NOT READING ANY DISK


Is your DVD/CD Drive appear in My Computer? Can you see it listed? If not, try these:

You may be required to go into the registry to fix this issue, so if you are not too comfortable going into the registry, you might want to get help (but I have written the instructions you can follow)

Check the Device Manager.

Start > Control Panel > Double Click the System icon > Click the Hardware Tab at the top of the box that opens > Click the Device Manager Button.

Click the [+] sign beside the category DVD/CD-ROM Drives

After clicking the [+] sign and the DVD/CD-ROMS Devices category opens up, is there a DVD Drive listed? If there is, when you right-click the DVD Drive and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39 in the grey box that appears when you choose properties?

Normally the DVD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the DVD Drive under the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error or the Drives do not show up in My Computer ("poste de travail"), it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs [+] next to the following folders



  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand side panel:


  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) 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.


This should fix the problem, let me know if it worked for you

Cd/rom not working


rub1 hello,

It seems like a hardware problem with your cd/DVD drive.
I suggest trying to use Windows Update, perhaps there is a driver conflict.
Try to update the drivers on everything, and see if this works.
If not, try rolling back the driver for the drive.
If none of that works, enter the BIOS by pressing F1 when your computer starts (before Windows gets on).
There, check if DVD/CD drive is Enabled or Disabled.
If it is disabled, it might indicate a hardware failure. Then, if warranty is still applicable, I would suggest sending your laptop to a service provider near you.
