CD-ROM IN EMACHINE M6810

THE CD-ROM WILL READ DVD'S AND PREVIOUS BURNED CD'S BUT NOT FACTORY BURNED CD'S. USING XP HOME ADDITION AND NEED TO KNOW IF THIS IS A CD DRIVE PROBLEM OR SOFTWARE DRIVER.

    I was blaming CD's for being the problem since I have not really used it to read CD's other than what I had burned, maybe a year or two. As for properties, there is nothing to enhance, enable or disable the CD read and the drivers are standard XP drivers that Microsoft does not see any need for updating. I also have Driver Detective that sees it as a system driver and will not update. So, the only other thing was to get another drive, if that is the problem, but like you say, if it can read a burned CD and DVD's, it seems strange that it would not read everything.

Try swapping out the drive, the laser maybe getting weak. Swap out the drive with a new one if you can and see if the same thing happens. If it does then its an Operating system problem. If the problem gets fixed then you know it was a weak laser in the old drive.

I had to restore my emachine to factory settings


Open "My Computer".
Insert a "data" CD, and hold the LEFT-SHIFT key down for a minute.
Watch the icon for the CD-drive change from the "standard" icon to something specific to the data CD.
Right-mouse-click on the CD's icon, and choose "Explore",
to open Windows Explorer to view the "data" files on the CD-disk.

How do you remove the cd/dvd rom in a emachine m6810


This is not an easy task, but first unsnap the the swivel cover just beneath the lcd screen. unscrew the keyboard securing screws and carefully lift out the keyboard ans separate the tape cable, now look and locate the securing screw for your dvd rom and just slide it out. Installation is in reverse. Please use caution as not to damage the internal parts and connections. Good Luck

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

Dvd-rom trouble


Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !
