Not read CD or DVD


You can try a DVD head cleaning disc, however, I think that either the laser is out of alignment, or the bearing on the unit is worn. Excessive noise when it attempts to read the DVD would indicate this and a replacement is the only answer

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.

Where can I get the driver for my LG GDR-8164B DVD-ROM Drive? I have an HP Compaq D220 MT system and need this driver. Thanks


You should not need a driver for a CD/DVD drive. Drivers are built into windows.
If you are having problems, you could try uninstalling the device in device manager, and let windows re install the drive.
You may find a bios update to help with this problem here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=337531&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=337529&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093

Ineed driver for xp


You dont need any drivers for internal drives, you may need to go to DEVICE MANAGER remove the dvd drive and let windows pick it up again.
You can download a FIRMWARE update.
