From your desktop, right click on ''my computer'' and go to propeties, on the tab go to hardware then device manager, you can click on the drive from the list and reinstall the driver from there.

if the driver is in stalled and looks ok you could uninstall the drive and use the scan for hardware changes icon to reinstall the drive.

after that it might be a problem with the drive itself, youll notice a small hole on the front of the drive, if you straighen a paper clip out and place it in that hole it will open your drive so you can get your disk out. be carefull when doing this.

hope it helps

    theres a few things you could try,

    make sure cables are connected properly try a different power molex lead (should have a few spare from the power supply) try a different ide lead.

    if its dvdrw, what burning software have you got installed? more than 1 burning software? does the drive show up in the software?

    could uninstall the software, uninstall the drive, restart and let windows pick up the drive and install the drive.

    if you do open your case to check the cables make sure you power off your computer before touching anything

    let me know how you get on

Packard Bell computer won't play dvds.


This sounds like a common problem. You need to install the drivers (small programs that instruct the computer to notice and manipulate peripherals, like a dvd or cd player, sound card, etc...).

The easiest place to find your specific driver is at the Packard Bell web site under support > Downloads. There are MANY sites (even some that advertise on this very site) that say they have the drivers for your dvd drive, but go directly to your manufacturer's web site. These companies that provide drivers for computers install a program into your computer and there is a fee for use of these web sites.

UPDATE: I just checked the Packard Bell Web Site and was unable to find specific drivers for your particular model. They stopped making them some time ago, and no longer support the model. That being said, you can still conceivably find the drivers, it will just take some investigative work on your part. In doing a broad search on the internet, I found that many people are looking for that very driver, which is an indication it has become hard to find.

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
