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.

    1. UpperFilters
    2. LowerFilters
    3. UpperFilters.bak
    4. LowerFilters.bak

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 10 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook.

Hello my Dell Studio 1435, it can read CD but not reading DVD... it give noise when i put DVD..


Try using a good quality DVD cleaner first. The lens for cd/dvd are different so one may work if the other is dirty. If cleaning does not work then the dvd lens may be out of alignment or broke. With today's prices it is cheaper to replace the drive $30-40 than try to repair it. Hope this helps.

Nothing happens when i put in a dvd or a CD. Under the driver information, it says that i´am having a error code 10.


error code 10 = either the device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. this code may also have a manufacturer specific error message associated with it, depending on the device.
Solutions, check the device connections, and check and/or update the drivers.

MY DVD/CD DRIVER IS NOT READING ANY DISK


Is your DVD/CD Drive appear in My Computer? Can you see it listed? If not, try these:

You may be required to go into the registry to fix this issue, so if you are not too comfortable going into the registry, you might want to get help (but I have written the instructions you can follow)

Check the Device Manager.

Start > Control Panel > Double Click the System icon > Click the Hardware Tab at the top of the box that opens > Click the Device Manager Button.

Click the [+] sign beside the category DVD/CD-ROM Drives

After clicking the [+] sign and the DVD/CD-ROMS Devices category opens up, is there a DVD Drive listed? If there is, when you right-click the DVD Drive and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39 in the grey box that appears when you choose properties?

Normally the DVD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the DVD Drive under the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error or the Drives do not show up in My Computer ("poste de travail"), it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs [+] next to the following folders



  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand side panel:


  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


This should fix the problem, let me know if it worked for you

Cd/rom not working


rub1 hello,

It seems like a hardware problem with your cd/DVD drive.
I suggest trying to use Windows Update, perhaps there is a driver conflict.
Try to update the drivers on everything, and see if this works.
If not, try rolling back the driver for the drive.
If none of that works, enter the BIOS by pressing F1 when your computer starts (before Windows gets on).
There, check if DVD/CD drive is Enabled or Disabled.
If it is disabled, it might indicate a hardware failure. Then, if warranty is still applicable, I would suggest sending your laptop to a service provider near you.

Cannot open DVD disc


Brain,
Is your drive supports DVD? Try to put a CD disc and see its reading or not. If this problem occurs for both CD's and DVD's discs then you might have problem in your drive lense. and if it only reads CD then your drive might not be supported for DVD's.

try to clean your drive lense using CD head cleaner, it might solve your problem, other than you have to replace your drive.

Thanks
