Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

Cleaning the CD-ROM drive's lens using the cleaning disc is sometimes not enough. In your case, you need to clean the lens by wiping it with a dry cotton lint free cloth. If you have a lens cleaning liquid from the CD disc cleaning kit, you can moisten the cloth with a drop of that liquid. Then, you should gently wipe the lens with this cloth.
After this is done, test your CD-ROM drive. If you still experience the same problems, then you will need to replace the whole CD-ROM drive.

Hi I'm Tony from the Philippines and I have a Compaq presario f756nr notebook pc (to be exact), i want to reformat my laptop and the problem i am facing now is that when i try to use my cd/dvd rom drive to...


Hi Tony,
Thanks for the details you have mentioned. The steps you have taken are correct and if the System/ hardware is ok, it should boot from CD Drive. Whenever i have faced such an issue, i always started afresh to check each hardware (CD, DVD, ROM, Hard Disk, Cables, Connections etc) and most of the times the issue was optical drive or CD/DVDs.

So, I recommend that make sure that the CD/DVD ROM is functioning properly. When the system is set to boot from CD/DVD, it must try to read CD/DVD after power on. It is indicated by spinning of the optical drive and blinking CD ROM LED. If there is a bootable CD in the drive, it should boot. You may try to boot the system through DOS bootable CD. Also, if you still have the OS on your system, you may check the CD ROM through windows.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

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

what do you mean not recognized? not detecting the drive or not reading? if not recognized by windows you can check the driver for drives in the windows if not reading it is the lens problem..if the lens problem, the solution only is to replace the lens or to replace the whole drive

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.

Hp pavillion dv1000 cd rom drive

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!
