If other cd's work, simply download the files from www.hp.com

(I always do anyway, since the software/drivers on the site are usually newer) The HP download page is below

My CD drive wont read certain disk (example; Ufile 2009, norton antivirus) But it reads games (warcraft etc) Once i put the cd in you can hear it running but nothing is happening. I have windows vista...


one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

DVD/CD-ROM Drive just stopped reading all discs


Have you tried using a good quality dvd cleaner? Alot of times a dirty laser will cause this problem. After cleaning try using a known good dvd and see if it works. If not check your device manager to see if the drive is functioning properly. If there is a yellow ! then the drive either has a corrupt driver or it has died. You can replace it fairly cheap as a dvd/cd burner can be replaced for around $45 max. Hope this helps.

My Plextor PX-230A CD RW Drive just stopped working. When I put a CD in the drive, the green run light just stays lit as if it trying to read the disk and eventually stops without anything happening....


More then likely not, just a reg error, Try this click "start" "run' type in "regedit" then ok, in the feflt field click the "+" next to "Hkey_Local_Machine" + next to "System" + next to "CurrantControllSet" + next to "Control" + next to "Class" click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} in the right field, right click on "Upper Filters" then "delete" right click on "Lower Filters" then "delete" restart pc. Hope this was helpfull. GL

Compaq presario 700us will play cds wont play dvds


Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.

Hope i give you some good observation.

Cd-rom drive


Hey Dale,

It sounds like there is an issue with the laser in the CD-ROM drive because it spins for 10 seconds trying to read the disk and stops because it cannot. If you try and put another disk in and it does this then the CD-ROM is bad. You can find replacements online for reasonable prices. You can also go to most electronic stores to purchase a replacement. They usually run around $30 dollars or less.

Thanks - Tech101
