How do i open my disk drive on toshiba laptop satellite c50-b


There must be a button on the side of the CR-ROM drive. Press it to open the drive. Insert the disk. If autoplay is enabled it will start. If not, explore My computer, locate the CD-Drive and click on its icon.

How to disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives in windows


0b05cdf.png

All recent versions of widows contain features called AutoPlay and AutoRun. AutoPlay lets you choose which program to use to start different kinds of media, such as music CDs, or CDs or DVDs containing photos. For example, the first time you try to play a music CD, AutoPlay asks which media player you want to use, if you have more than one installed on your computer. You can change AutoPlay settings for each media type.Autorun is the technology used to start many programs or enhanced content (such as videos on a music CD) automatically when you insert a CD or USB drives into your computer. This is different from AutoPlay, but the result are the same, when inserted, the CD or USB drive starts automatically, using a particular program. Autorun is incorporated into the media types that use it, and you can't modify it.
When a disc is inserted or a drive is connected to your computer, Windows looks in the root directory of the disc or drive for a file named autorun.inf. If found, Windows executes the instructions in that file. ( whether it be start the music or install the virus.)
For example, an autorun.inf file on a CD might contain a line that reads open=setup.exe. This tells your computer to launch a setup program as soon as the CD is inserted into the drive

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.


For XP users:

1.Click Start and then click Run. Type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policy window will open.

3.In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK.

4.Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.

Try navigating to Start Button/ My Computer/, then Double-click the CD or DVD drive. If no CD or DVD drive shows up in My Computer, there is a problem with the drive. if no disc shows up in the Drive, it is a problem with reading the media.

THE DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE DOES NOT PLAY THROUGH THE ACER ARCADE OR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER WHENEVER I INSERT A DVD OR CD-ROM. WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE SIR?


Autoplay might be turned off.
open up "My Computer" or "Computer" and double click the drive and see if it reads that way.
If not, clean the lens on the drive.
If that doesn't work, you will likely need to replace the DVD drive or take the computer in for service.

My dell studio 1535 will not open a cd, when I insert the cd nothing happens. I just had a new hard drive installed..


If the CD-ROM will boot from a recovery CD, then this would indicate a Windows software problem instead of a CD-ROM issue. It can usually be attributed to a corrupt driver. To reinstall the drivers:

1. Go to Start>> Right click My Computer>> Properties>> Hardware>> Device Manager.

2. Expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives line item.

3. Right click on the items below and select Uninstall drive on the resulting menu.

4. Re-boot the system and Windows will automatically detect the CD-ROM drive and re-install the drivers for you.

Try a different media - some brands will just not work correctly with a given CD-ROM drive. Watch out for compatibility problems with Maxell, Memorex and Macromedia CDs.

Check for unusual noises, maybe a ticking type noise. This could indicate a cracked disk. Or, the media may not be seated correctly on the spindle.

Is the access light on?

Is the CD Clean?

Check error messages in Event Viewer. Here's how:

Go to Start>> Settings>> Control Panel>> Administrative Tools>> Computer Management (or Event Viewer)

Check your manufacturer's web site for software updates and drive updates. Check for QSI firmware updates.

For DVD - Are you trying to write to a DVD that is READ ONLY?

If all has failed, you may be faced with performing a complete Operating System Recovery or Repair (preferred).

If nothing above has worked for you, then you may need to take the drive in to a service facility for repair or replace the drive.

Laptop has lost dvd.. it can not open or play anything


if you want to save the autoplay option to certain drives (e.g. CD/DVD drives) ... I have problem with hard disk, It is not open when I double click. ... If you cannot find the file, it's probably because windows lost it or you have a virus. ..... I still wanted my CD-ROM to use this feature but not anything else. ...

Error message/cannot burn cd in cd burner


This seems to me to be an AutoPlay issue, where the default action for blank CD-media is to format it, and might be a feature of your burning software. To resolve this, you could try the following:
  1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking AutoPlay.
  2. In the list next to the device or type of disc, click Ask me every time.
