My gemini cdx2400 not reading the dis


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.

My laptop doesnt have the cd drive. It doesnt read my cd or dvd..


If you have more than one computer and other computer has dvd drive or cd drive you may use it by networking this computer to that one! You may also by external cd/dvd drive for your computer as well which may be easier!

My laptop dont read hard disk drive


Hello,

Okay, shut down your laptop, turn it up side down, remove laptop battery, remove Cd drive by first unscrewing the CD drive's screw before removing/detaching the Cd drive from the computer.

Turn on your computer without the Cd/drive, allow computer to boot, after a while, shut down computer, fix in back the CD drive and turn the system back on.

By now the system should read the CD drive. If it does not, then I'm afraid some this is wrong with the Drive, but I'm sure it should work.

Take care.

Hard crive crashed,


When my hard drive went down a few months ago I bought an external hard drive caddy off ebay for about £13, best £13 pound I ever spent. I installed it into the external caddy, plugged it into the USB port and it worked brilliantly, if the hard drive still doesnt work their are many data recovery firms out there, but be warned they are quite expensive, this usally involves sending the said hard drive off and they send the desired files back to you on a DVD. Hope this helps, Paul

CD/DVD Is Not Recognized
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Many times, after inserting a disc into the CD or DVD drive, the disc is not recognized by that drive. CD-read and DVD-read issues can be caused by many sources. Perform the procedures presented in this General Computer Advice article when troubleshooting CD-read and DVD-read issues.

Begin with the first procedure and continue through the list. Try using the CD or DVD after each procedure is completed. For any procedure that requires changing current system settings, record the original settings before completing the procedure.
  1. Verify that the correct disc (CD/DVD) is used when prompted to insert the disc.
  2. For programs on DVD, verify that the drive containing the DVD is a DVD drive and not a CD-ROM drive. Most DVD drives will haveDVD printed on the front of the drive. For programs on DVD, consider the following:
  • DVD drives can read both DVD's and CD's.
  • CD-ROM drives can read only CD's.
  1. If multiple disc drives (e.g., CD-ROM and CD-RW, or DVD and DVD-RW, or CD-ROM and DVD-RW, etc.) exist on the computer that can read the disc (refer to the items under Step 2), insert the CD or DVD into the other drive and try the program again.
  2. If you are attempting to install a program and the installation does not begin after inserting the CD/DVD into the proper drive, refer to the program's instructions for the installation procedure.
  3. Clean the CD/DVD in the following manner:
  1. Place a small amount of nonabrasive liquid soap on the shiny side of the CD/DVD.
  2. Using your fingertips and warm water, gently rub the soap on the CD/DVD in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the CD/DVD thoroughly and dry it using a clean, soft T-shirt or lint-free towel. (Do not use paper towels or tissue paper.)
  1. Try to use a different CD or DVD in the drive to see if that disc can be read.
  2. If possible, insert the problem CD or DVD into the DVD or CD drive of another computer to see if the issue persists.

Cd is not read


Try the CD disk in a different computer.
If it does not read, the CD disk is the problem.

Try a different CD in your computer.
If it does not read, the CD-drive is the problem.

Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD-writer, to replace the "dead" CD-drive.
