Are you saying your computer will not read a disk?

Is this a disk you made or someone made and gave to you? If so most there are times when the computer will have trouble reading them.

Try using a store purchased disk such as a music cd that you purchased. If it reads and plays it, then the drive is ok.

Click Start/My Computer and see if your CD Drive is listed as a device. If not, that's your problem.

If the CD Drive is not listed as a device, then remove the power cord, open the case and remove the two cables that plug into the cd drive then plug them back in. Then try rebooting and see if the cd drive is listed as a device in My Computer.

If the drive is still not listed, then you will need to Remove Upper and Lower Filters.

Since the disk works "elsewhere", it's probably your CD-drive that is faulty. Spend $40 to replace it with a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

The only other possibility is "bad" RAM on your computer's motherboard -- but you would be seeing other symptoms when using your computer, if this was a problem.

Optical drives do not recognize disk when trying to load new disk


If you cannot read those CD-disks in _any_ computer, then the disks are "bad".

If you can read those CD-disks, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD drive. Find a smaller computer-store -- often they will remove the "dead" drive, and install the "new" drive, for $0.00, or for a small fee, if you buy the new CD/DVD-writer from them.

My computer is slow and the is not reading or burning CD/DVD


Slow computer problem would be different then that non reading disks. Slow computer could happen in many cases, a virus is taking up all the memory, or defragmented hard disk, programs that required more memory and cpu speed. CD, DVD could fail to read due to loose cable, BIOS setup or damaged drive.

Good morning! please try to check from the Device Manager if your CD drive is enabled & working properly, if not we have to reinstall the driver, then after reinstalling the driver if still it doesn't read the inserted CD, then try to install a new CD Drive unit -if it works then the previous CD drive unit is defective. best regards

Read a copied CD


If you burned a Data CD and didn't finalize it, it likely will not be viewable in another PC. Put the disk back into the PC that created it and start the software you used to burn it and attempt to finalize the burn. This should make it compatible with most computers.
