The disk spin motor either gave out or became disconnected. Repair or replacement of the drive might be your only options.

If your CDROM is older than a year than you need to take it to repair person and ask for service of the device. He will carefully clean the sensitive lense and other parts of the CDROM. If the CDROM does not work even after that you need to retire it and get a new one.
The CDROM drivers are built into windows. Windows detect the device driver once you start your computer with a CDROM in a working order.

Good Luck!

My desk top Dell optiplex GX 260 CD Rom drivers corrupted, G: Drive does not display, kindly send me drivers.


CD Rom do not need any extra drivers, the drivers are provided by your Operating System ie Windows.

The only thing that need updating for a CDROM, may the firmware for the CDROM.

Most probably your CDROM has malfunction or faulty. Replace the CDROM drive.

How can I transfer a document from Works to a cd?


Hello,

It is very easy. Just right click on your document file and select SENDTO, after that, select your CDROM

this operation will burn your document into your CDROM directly.

Don't forget to insert a BLANK CD into your CDROM, before doing this process.

The CD-ROM (Drive:G)


First check it is detected in bios,if not check the power and data cables to the cd rom from motherboard.If its ok,this is a driver problem.I Think the vendor has given you  a cdrom nero.First boot from a windows 98 cdrom,after that put the nero cd .You can find one folder "driver" or "cdrom",change into the directory and install.Reboot your system it will be okay.

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.
