    Did you try with multiple CDs? How did you upgrade drivers?

    You do not need any software other than operating system to read data from CDs.

SOURCE: CD ROM Drive doesn't read CDs!

These compact CD drives break more easily than standard desktop drives. Your drive will probably need to be replaced. First I would try removing and re-inserting the drive (maybe even a few times) There is probably one screw or a slide switch under the laptop to allow the CD drive to be removed. IF that does not help, have you cleaned the lens? You have easy access to the lens when the drive is open. If you have any camera lens cleaning equipment use that, if not 91% rubbing alcohol and a q-tip will work. Just don't rub too much or apply much pressure at all. Just lightly sweep away any dust. If none of the above work I would look for a replacement. The CD burner or DVD burner drives are typically more reliable and last longer.

SOURCE: Tray starter and InstantWrite Control Center have stopped working!

I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!

When I insert a disk nothing happens, it makes really loud noises asif its about to take off. This carrys on and my computer does not recognise there has been a disk inserted.


The driver for your CD-ROM needs to be UPDATED. click start, then control panel, click performance and maintenance, then click system, click the hardware tab, then click DEVICE MANAGER.under the CD/DVD ROM DRIVES, your CD-ROM should be listed. It may have a "?" mark or "!" to show the driver is out of date. If so, then right click on the device, click the "driver" tab, and click update driver. If the driver is updated, but the CD-ROM is still not functioning, follow the same steps, however; when you right click the device and enter the properties, instead of entering driver, click the "PROPERTIES TAB: and UN-CHECK the box in the DIGITAL CD PLAYBACK. If that does not work, then search online for a driver that is compatable with your windows system,
