Fix DVD/CD ROM to work Acer M1610, Computer not detecting DVD/CD ROM. No drive is seen how to fix this, what are my options. OS is Vista


Hi rossclark3,


Try to check the jumper settings of your DVD/CD ROM if it is properly assigned as Master or Slave.
Afterwards, also check the cable connecting the DVD/CD ROM to the motherboard.
Finally, restart your PC and check the BIOS Setup if it can already detect your DVD/CD ROM.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

I want my desktop to boot from cd. But in the boot priorities there is no option for CD-ROM. How can I make CD-ROM first boot priority?


If there is no cd rom, you need to check for it your bios detects your cd rom drive, and make sure you connect it properly.

If you are using IDE CD-ROM,make sure it doesnt conflict on your Master-Slave configuration. if you are using SATA CD-ROM make sure it connects properly to your SATA Ports, and also check if you have properly connect the power cable to your CD Drive.

The cd-rom drive in my computer has stopped working all of a sudden. The cables inside the tower are all connected however it does not recognize a disc being in the cd-rom drive! I also get a warning that...


Replace the Cd-rom drive, sounds like you may have a bad spindle motor and or Laser assembly. Cd-roms are very cheap these days, and you might consider replacing it with a DVD drive instead, which is downward compatiable.

I have brought a new computer that dosnt have a cd rom. I have tried putting in two different cd-roms but they wont show up on my computer. i have tried downloading drivers to help but it still wont work.


Hello !

Your CD-ROM should have at least two cables connected to it: a power cable and IDE cable that should also be connected to your motherboard. Disconnect and reconnect the cables and be certain that they are snug.

Some computers will also have a small third cable used to interface the CD-ROM with the sound card. If the audio for your CD audio CDs is not working properly verify that this cable is not disconnected from the back of the CD-ROM.

Hope this helps.

CD ROm not working, not reading discs


Try to clean the lenses using a soft cloth.
Also check the connections of the CD Drive.
Also check in contro panel>device manager wether you have a CD Rom drive over there or not. (Mostly if its not there then connections are loose)
In most of the cases connections are loose. And even after that cleaning the lenses if the CD Rom dosent read then may be there is some problem inside the CD Rom assembly or its broken. You will have to get it repaired.
