CD rom not working

I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 that was given to me by work. Everything works fine except the DVD/CD rom drive. I have checked everything. Properties of the device state that it is enabled and working properly. I have ran the troubleshooting and nothing. I have not installed any new hardware. The only thing i did was install Itunes. When I put a cd in i can hear it spinning but it will not read the cd.I am at a loss here. i would greatly appriciate anything you can do to help me.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

My cd rom wil not work it just quit working for no reason it will not play any cds or let me burn anything


First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

Confirm that your BIOS does not have a "Mute PC Speaker" option. Confirm that you have not muted your PC Speaker in your OS. Remove the Palm rest via screws on the bottom of the machine, Remove Keyboard, Confirm that your speakers have not become disconnected/loose in anyway. Speakers are generally connected to the system board below the area of the touch pad.

Dell Inspiron B130 DVD RW problems


First thing you need to check is whether the issue happens only if you are logged in to Windows or not. For you to check if it also happens outside of Windows, insert the Windows Operating System disk (XP or Vista) then shutdown the computer. Turn it back on. As soon as you see the Dell Logo, keep on pressing F12. Then select "CD/DVD ROM" from the choices and press enter. When you see the prompt "Press any key to boot from the CD", keep on tapping the "Enter" key. If your CD/DVD drive is working fine, you should see a page that'd say "Windows is loading files". If not then the system is not detecting your drive. Then check the BIOS page. F2 on the Dell Logo. Then look for Drive Configuration. If the drive isn't there, reseat it. Physically remove the drive from the computer and put it back in. Then restart.

Do you have Dell 5100, as I didn't think they were fitted with a Samsung drive, or have you put this in, or can you tell me your location?
