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.

Hello there:
Please go to my computer and when you see it right click on it and then go down to properties and than click on it and then once that screen has opened up go to hardware and then click on hardware and then go to device manager then open it up .
now you will look for cd rom and open it now highlight your cd rom and right click it and select uninstall .
next it will ask you to confirm the installation say yes the computer will uninstall the device .
next if you look towards the top of the box in device manager you should see where it says action click on it and where it says scan for hardware changes select it from there
now the computer will recognize the cd rom and reinstall it for you you will be notified down at the taskbar that the new device is being installed and it will notify you of when it is done. ok it should work just fine now
best regards michael

4) If you do not see this in your Device Manager go to Add Hardware in your Control Panel which is next to your Add/Remove Programs icon. Click on Add Hardware and it will scan for all hardware.
** This should take care of your problem.If not then somehow the actual connection in your tower has come loose. If so you must open your tower and look for a loose wire going to your DVD/CD rom drive.

New cd rom doesn't work


Have any you added any drives to your computer recently? If so you'll have to check the jumper settings on your drives. If nothing has changed to your computer between the time it was working and when it stopped then you most likely have a dead drive.

But since you say the device manager sees your drive you'll need to go into your administrator tools in the control panel and select computer management. Under storage select drive management. If you see your drive listed but has no drive letter you can right-click the drive and assign a drive letter. The change should be immediate.
