MY CD/DVD Disk drive will not read anything

I checked out the problem in Device manager and I got this message "This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available."

I checked for solutions and nothing happened. I also tried running an update and nothing happened. I then uninstalled it and restarted the computer and the problem remains. I dont know what eles to do.

    The light blinks when i put a disk in but it stops after a couple blinks. The media does not sow up in my computers at all. Dosnt matter if its a CD DVD or Game. I dont know how to uninstall and then reinstall the drive. All i tried was uninstalling it then restarting the computer and it tried to reinstall it itself but there was an error and it didnt install correctly.

Physically take out the drive and reseat it back into place. Then turn the laptop on and go into your bios by pressing F2. If the cd drive shows up in the BIOS then that means the system is seeing it properly. If it doesn't show up in the BIOS then that means the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

If the drive shows up in the BIOS then reboot the laptop and then once you get into windows try different dvds and cds in the drive. If it reads them then problem solved. If it doesn't read anything then go ahead and clean the laser of the cd drive with a damp q-tip. Clean it and then try different discs again. If it still doesn't read anything then the drive at that point is definitely bad and the drive would need to be replaced.

My drive wont read anything. I am trying to install MS office from a DVD. my device manager says it's working properly and I tried the Microsoft Fixit and that didn't work


Hi,

Device Manager states that it is working properly because it is detected by the computer. However, device manager has no capability of check if there's a problem with the lense of the DVD Drive. You can try a diffent CD to check if the problem is with the MS office CD or with the drive. If the DVD Drive still cant read any other disk it only means that it has a bad lense and you need to replace the DVD Drive.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My computer wont read disks it was able to a few days ago and i went to go put in a disk that needs to get installed before i can use a camera. I have tried others disks and it wont read any of them....


You need to first check if the disk is being detected by Computer--

click start---computer ---check if the disk that u insert is visible there or not.
And also chk in device manager---by right click on computer--properties---device manager(vista)--look for cd/dvd drive.
right click on my computer---properties---hardware----device manager(xp))--look for cd/dvd drive.

If not visible in device manager then u have to open up ur computer and reseat the cd/dvd drive cables...

If its visble in device manager--then right click on the option under cd/dvd drive----properties----check for the error code.
If error code 19 , 31 , 32 , or 39 is displayed inside Device Status.

Then click start -- run -- and -- type regedit -- click ok . the registry editor appears.

In windows XP -- click file -- EXPORT-- TYPE A FILENAME THAT IS EASY FOR YOU TO REMEMBER AND CLICK SAVE.

A COPY OF THE REGISTORY HAS SAVED FOR BACKUP PURPOSE.
CLICK THE PLUS SIGN (+) NEXT TO THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN THE LIST :

In Vista click:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CURRENTCONTROLSET (OR THE CURRENT CONTROL SET WITH LOWEST NUMBER IF THAT IS ALL THAT IS LISTED)
CONTRO
CLASS
SELECT 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
SELECT THE UPPER FILTER IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
CONFIRM THE DELETION BY CLICKING YES
SELECT THE LOWER FILTERS IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
CONFIRM THE DELETION BY CLICKING YES
DELETE ALL OTHER UPPER FILTER AND LOWER FILTER VALUES WITHIN THE 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 KEY
CLOSE THE REGISTRY EDITOR AND RESTART THE COMPUTER ...
This should resolve the issue...
Let me the the error code and msg in device manager window.....

Thank you ....

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.
