Go into your device manager uninstall the device driver , but do not delete it, restart the computer, it should work, if it doesn't try manually updating it to the previous device driver, also boot from a cd to see if the drive works outside of windows.

Cd drive wont read discs


Yes there is .... Do these in any order:
#1:
The CD laser lens needs cleaning. Maybe a blast of air from a comprerssed air can ($7 Office Depot, Max, Best Buy) will clean it.

#2:
Do you have access to a USB CD or DVD drive?
That may be your best bet to boot from it....

#3:
See if you are able to get the "Safe Mode" menu using the [F8] key on boot-up. From the menu, select "start computer in last known good configuration". That may fix everything.

Acer Disk Drive Won't Work


First thing I would do is update the drivers for the cdrom. Also try using different program to rule out cd rom failure. You can use VLC media player, Window Media Player 11 and so on.
Also, if you open the cd rom you will see the glass laser eye. You can clean this eye with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab

When i try to copy dvd it keeps telling me to insert blank disc even though one is in there i can burn cds but not dvd it tells me to put in writeable disk and ive put in dvdr-w and dvd-r and still it...


Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

Hp pavillion dv1000 cd rom drive


memphisrains -

Sounds as though you may need to reinstall the driver for the laptop's cdrom drive. The easiest way I've found to do this is to download it directly from the manufacturer's web site; In your case, look here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-31831-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=435618&os=228&lang=en

Download the file to your desktop (file name is sp30367.exe), and run the installation to reinstall & update the DVD/CD-ROM drivers.

Hope this helps!
