You need to go to start, control panel, system, hardware, device manager and see if it is listed under dvd/cd rom drives. if not then go to start, control panel, add hardware and let windows search for it and install it !!

Hi!

The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks

Have a HP DVD 840d burner, my pc only recognizes the cd rom not the dvd burner. any help to get this to recognize my dvd burner.


If you load a commercially-produced DVD disk into the drive, does it show in "My Computer" or do you get an "insert disk" message?

If it shows, right-mouse click on the icon, and choose "Explore".
Does it show files/folders, or is there an error-message?

Combo Cd/Dvd Drive is not reading Cds nor DVDs


1. Remove your burner from your computer then open it by removing the screws under the burner.
2. When the cover has already been removed, get a cotton bud then soak it in alcohol to clean the lens. Because the lens might just be dirty. Then after that put the cover back by screwing it again then install it back to your computer.
