Dvd/cd is not working


You can follow these methods to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Use these methods in the order in which they are presented.

Method 1: Clean the disc

When you have problems with a CD or DVD drive, always check the disc first to see whether it is damaged or dirty. To clean the disc, follow these steps:

1. Remove the disc from the drive.
2. Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth.

Note Do not use a paper cloth, and do not use a circular motion to clean the disc. These can scratch the disc.
3. Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive.
If the computer can read the disc, you are finished.
If the computer still cannot read the disc, go to step 4.
4. Try again to clean the disc by using a cloth dampened with water, or dampened with a commercial CD or DVD cleaning solution.
5. Dry the disc thoroughly, and then reinsert it in the CD or DVD drive.
6. If the computer can read the disc, you are finished.
If the computer still cannot read the disc, go to method 2.

Method 2: Check the disc for damage

If the disc is clean, check whether it is damaged. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks.
2. If the disc is damaged, try another disc to see whether the CD or DVD drive can read it.
3. If the computer still cannot read a disc, there may be a problem with the drive. Go to method 3 to troubleshoot the CD or DVD drive.
If the computer can read the other disc, there is a problem with original CD or DVD. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement.

Method 3: Try a different disc drive

If the disc is clean and undamaged, check whether there is a problem with the drive. To do this, follow these steps:

1. If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc.
If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer.
2. If the other CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be a problem with your CD or DVD drive. Go to method 5.
If the other CD or DVD drive cannot read the disc, the disc may not be compatible with the drive. Go to method 4.

Method 4: Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive

Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.

* A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
* A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
* A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.

If the disc is compatible, go to method 5.
If the disc is incompatible, use a compatible disc or contact the vendor for a compatible replacement.

Method 5: Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers
If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing.

Good luck

The discs won't get go into the playstation3


If your ps3 disc drive still makes sound maybe the top lid of the disc drive is not in the correct spot. Have you opened it before? Thats how the disc drive will get out of line. If you havent opened it before it might just need a good cleaning and lubricated. How to fix it if its out of line is to take ps3 lid off take disc drive lid off hook it up and place a cd in it and let the drive accept the disc then put everything back together with the disc in the disc drive. Now it should work right.

It rejected all cds


troubleshooting advice below-try steps in order until the problem is resolved.
  1. Be sure to check your disc to make sure it is flat. You can check this by putting the disc upside-down on a flat surface. If the disc is bowed up on any side or in the center, do not use the disc as it may get stuck in the drive.
  2. Make sure you a
  3. e inserting the disc far enough for the drive mechanism to activate. Discs must be inserted at least three-quarters of the way into the drive, and often nearly all the way in, before the drive will pull them in.
  4. Make sure the disc is completely inserted in the drive. The disc-insert cycle runs the motor for about 6 seconds. If, for whatever reason, a disc is not completely inserted, the drive will reverse and push the disc back out of the drive.
  5. Since the entry slot can be tight at first, give the drive 1 or 2 seconds to accept the disc and pull it in on its own. If the drive struggles with injecting discs or injects them part-way then stops, inserting a disc multiple times should correct the issue.
  6. Restart the macbook.
  7. Do not use discs that have anything attached to them or dangling from them (such as "sweeper" or cleaning discs).
  8. If the drive repeatedly does not insert media fully, or accept media at all, please contact Apple, contact an Apple-Authorized Service Provider, or make an appointment with an Apple Retail Store for additional troubleshooting, evaluation, or service.

Snapper mower will only pull some in first gear not the other gears


If its like my ol snapper it has a disc drive. The drive disc sets vertical to the horizoltal axel disc or at a right angle. First gear starts out near the center, and as u shift the drive disc moves out creating the higher speeds. The drive disc has a hard rubber rim on the outside edge that runs against the axel disc. When this gets worn down, u don't go.
U need a new drive disc.

If the computer still cannot read a disc, there may be a problem with the drive. Go to method 3 to troubleshoot the CD or DVD drive. If the computer can read the other disc, there is a problem with original CD or DVD. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. Method 3: Try a different disc drive If the disc is clean and undamaged, check whether there is a problem with the drive. To do this, follow these steps: If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc.

Method 4: Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive. A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive. A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs. A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front. If the disc is compatible, go to method 5. If the disc is incompatible, use a compatible disc or contact the vendor for a compatible replacement. Back to the top Method 5: Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com If these methods do not resolve your issue, try the advanced troubleshooting steps in this article. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, or you might want to contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/ If methods 1 through 5 did not resolve the issue, you can follow these methods to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Method 1: Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive. To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps: Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:*.* HardDiskDrive:cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder. Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. To continue trying to isolate the problem and test the CD or DVD drive, go to method 2. Method 2: Test the CD or DVD drive in a "clean boot" state If the disc is readable and undamaged, there may be some hardware or software that is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. You can test this by inserting the disc into the drive after restarting your computer in a clean boot state. This helps you determine whether any hardware or software is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. To test this, follow these steps: Restart the computer in a clean boot state. Note For more information about how to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310353 How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state After the computer is restarted, exit all programs and applications that may be using the CD or DVD drive. First, right-click each icon in the notification area, and then click Exit. Note The notification area is located at the far right of the taskbar, near the clock. Some programs that are listed in the notification area do not have an Exitcommand. Therefore, you may have to click Quit, Close, or Disable, depending on the commands that are available for that program. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) taskmgr in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Windows Task Manager opens. Click the Applications tab. If any programs appear in the Task list, click the name of the program to select it, and then click End Task. Repeat the previous step until the Task list is empty. Close Windows Task Manager. Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be other programs preventing the drive from reading the disc. Go to method 3. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the "Next Steps" section. Method 3: Change the CD or DVD drive configuration If there are programs that are preventing the drive from reading the disc, you can try to resolve this issue by configuring the drive to run in direct memory access (DMA) mode. DMA mode is a high performance mode for transferring data to and from devices. These include CD and DVD drives. To configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode, follow these steps: Configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode. For more information about how to switch your computer's disc drive controller to DMA mode, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310751 Device settings are hard to find in Windows XP Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, you are finished. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, try to troubleshoot DVD components by using method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the “Next Steps” section. Method 4: Troubleshoot DVD problems If the advanced troubleshooting methods 1 through 3 do not resolve the issue, and you have problems specifically with a DVD drive, follow these steps to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Prerequisite You must use a DVD drive with a DVD logo on the front, not a standard CD drive. Step 1: Unplug any cables that are connected Unplug any cables that are connected to the video outputs of the computer. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, you may have problems with the video hardware installed on your computer. Contact the manufacturer of the video hardware for support or for a replacement. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 2. Step 2: Update the DVD driver Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain an updated driver for the DVD drive, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the driver. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated driver. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 3. Step 3: Obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the decoder. Note Many video adapters help decode DVD discs. However, the video adapter may not fully decode a DVD movie. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated DVD decoder. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, make sure that the sound card in the computer is compatible with the DVD drive. To do this, contact the manufacturer of the sound card. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive.

When i put a disc in the drive it takes ages to load


If this happens in all the discs you put in, then you should consider looking at the processor and memory speed, and most importantly, the disc drive itself. Replace the drive, if nothing happens, then upgrade your memory and processor (CPU).
If this happens with only one discs or with a few discs, see if your drive can read the type of discs you put in. There is a "+" and/or "-" on the disc, it should work properly with a +/- drive. If the drive has "+" on it, then it can only read discs with a "+" on it.
Hope this helps . . .

The ps3 disc inst inserting


if the drive is not taking the disc, then make sure there already isn't a disc in the drive.

If there is a disc in the drive eject it out.

If there is not a disc in the drive and its just not taking discs then the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

How to download unreadable disc for lexmark printer


The printer install disc may be faulty or your disc drive is faulty.
Insert the disc into a different computer, if it can be read then the problem is your disc drive.
If it is your disc drive, turn off your computer, open your computer and remove and reconnect the power and data cables on the "faulty" drive, switch on your computer, let it boot up and install the printer disc.
If it still cannot read the disc then you need to replace the faulty disc drive with a new one.
