I have e machines EL1300G-02W desktop pc has dvd rom can i add a cdrom drive?


Your DVD-ROM drive will also play CD's. You can also easily remove it and replace it with a CD-ROM drive if you like. Simply open the case, unscrew the DVD-ROM, remove the power and data cables from the back and pull it out through the front of the case. Installing the CD-ROM just involves doing this in the reverse order. Make sure your computer is off and unplugged during this process.

I can't insert any cd's.


Maybe the laser eye is jammed. It tracks back and forth reading data from the disc.
You may either replace the drive or have it repaired.
I had one on my PC do the same vibrating, clicking noise. It only cost 40.00 to replace.
But for a laptop, you're looking between 60-100 dollars to replace.
You can see how much it would cost to repair first, but my guess is it would be cheaper to replace.

CD-Rom


Shut down PC & disconnect the wide flat data cable connecting the device to the motherboard. Boot the PC and do nothing. Shut down again and reconnect the cable as it was. If possible replace the old cable with a fresh one.
Try & reply.

Dvd fault


your laser is faulty and is only able to read cd tracks, the reason being that dvd's data is packed closer together than a cd, and when the laser is failing it can only read wider burned data tracks on cd's.

You will have to replace the drive

Dvd rom


I'm assuming you're using Windows... Try downloading the most recent Media Player, or install any DVD Video player. Possibly the one that came with your Drive.

Hope that helps..
