Uninstall while in safe mode. Go to your bios and make sure your CD Rom is detected. If it is then reinstall. If not then it isn't compatible with your computer

My dvd rom is no longer playing

Always check the connections and power supply first. if this doesn't work and everything is connected, you might try to update the DVD Rom firmware. a program (free) called Imgburn will allow you to check and find any firmware available. If this still doesn't fix it you may need a new drive (they don't last forever).

My dvd room is not working

This DVD Rom is known for getting dirt and dust on the laser then to stop working correctly, I would like to say you should replace it, DVD roms are under 40 bucks and all work basically the same, just be sure that you get the right connector for it (there is four different kinds and two of them haven't been used for several years) then be sure to place the drive jumper in the right position, the instructions are almost always written on the drives case..
However if yo do not want to replace it then get a CD/DVD cleaner disk that has the microfiber brush on the cleaning disk and follow the directions. or if you really want to try to clean the laser by hand open the case and use a Qtip (not a generic one, the Qtip has more on the end of the stick) use windex window cleaner on the end of one and carefully and very lightly clean the lens, do not push on the laser, it is mounted on a magnetic holder and cannot take more than a few micrograms of pressure, after the windex (not a generic) rinse the lens twice with distilled water on a Qtip DO NOT, use hardly any pressure and do not use alcohol the laser is extremely sensitive to alcohol and pressure. Re assemble ad reinstall, if this doesn't work then you will need a new one.

How do i install this drive?

Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.

Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.

Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

How can I fix a CD Writer or a DVD rom when It's

Make sure that the CD/DVD has the power light on. Try and use the ermergency hole a few times to open and close the unit. This will sometimes get the unit back in sync with the gear mechanism. If that does not work, take the unit out of the tower and remove the case. Usually the ribbon and power cables are long enough to hook up the unit on the desk next to the tower. Inspect the mechanisn to see that the parts appear to be synced and then use emergency hole a couple of times. This has worked for me several times. I just did it last month on a friends computer. If this doesn't fix the problem, it's possible that the button you push is bad. Hope this will help you. UAW 974

My computer doesn't read dvd & cd s . I neek a driver

You don't need a driver, all the necessary drivers are pre-installed at the windows. The most common error at these cases is a hardware error (scratched disk or defective cd/dvd rom)

very simple, just remove the casing then disconnect the wires from power supply colored yellow,black,red (connector) to dvd rom, then disconnect the cable ribbon to dvd rom unscrew the dvd to the casing then slide out the dvd rom backward( if you are facing the cpu) bfore you install the replacement, you need to check your dvd rom which you have taken out and compare the jumper orientation to your new dvd rom. if the old one is in cable select or in primary or in slave just follow the old one. now if you are finish checking the jumper orientation, you may proceed in installing your dvd rom on casing, install back the screw on bothe sides and all the connectors. power on thats it your finish just proceed to the my computer and check if this appears in it or in the device manager. i hope that this helps you, any questions or clarifications feel free to ask me.
