My cddvdw ts-l632h isn't working on my compaq presario c700 notebook it says it cannot load driver may be corrupted or missing problem no 39


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question/exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

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.

hope this helps

How to change cd rw in hp pavilion 523n computer


If you can't find the button to eject the CD tray:

Open the Start Menu and go to My Computer (or Computer if you're on Vista or Windows 7). Right-click on your CD drive, and then click on Eject. The tray should eject. When you change the CD and still can't find the button, you should just be able to lightly tap the front of the tray, and it will retract back into your PC.

MS FIXit, Resetting Upper and lower Filters (XP, Vista and 7)
First... try to use the MS Fixit (for Vista) if you are on the computer having the problem)...

Otherwise, here are the manual steps (overview):

1) Uninstall the CD/DVD drive in Device Manager and DO NOT RESTART the computer.

2) Uninstall your CD burning software (make sure you have the installation disc or you can resinstall from Start, Programs, PC Help and Tools, Recovery Manager (or Driver/Application Recovery). If you don't have the installation discs, skip this step - it might still work).

3) Open the registry editor (Start -> Run -> enter Regedit) ... might want to make a backup of the registry at this point.

4) Open the following keys:

+ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
+ SYSTEM
+ CurrentControlSet (or the current control set with lowest number if that is all that is listed)
+ Control
+ Class

5) Select 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318. It has to be this exact key - make sure you can see the last numbers!!!

6) Delete the UpperFilter and or the LowerFilters value in the right window if either exists.

7) RESTART the computer - this step is important. Wait for Windows to find and install the CD/DVD drive you removed earlier.

8) Reinstall your burning software and restart the computer again.

Hi,

Uninstall the driver from Device Mgr, then go to registry editor, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the left hand side delete the Upper and Lower filter. Restart the PC and reinstall the driver. You may also create new user account if issue continues.

Pioneer DVD R/RW drive DVR-K17LA not reading


Normally no drivers are needed for CD drives other than the ones built into Windows. It might be a dirty lens that is causing the trouble. When the tray opens on a laptop CD drive the lens is exposed and can get touched or exposed to dirt. Try gently cleaning it with a cotton swab to brush off the lens. If the problem continues, the laser may have worn out and is too weak to read now. You can find replacement drives online, or use a USB plug-in external drive.

Many of these drives don't work unless you have a non-microsoft CD and/or DVD burning software1.gif program. your drive may be configured for Windows XP instead of Vista (or vice versa) and therefore causes conflicts and won't work (I speak from experience). Many of these drives do not need drivers or software--they just need an appropriate CD/DVD burning program. I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a freeware program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software ids, (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what burning software you have, check out updates from the software maufacturer. That might do the trick.

My LG CD Writer ejects automatically without any operations...


This is normally as sign that the writer is faulty, especially if ejecting on your pc's start up. Just go through this first to check if it's just a driver fault. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
