CD/DVD driver not working


A few solutions:
1. Have you tried to clean your cd/dvd lens? Probably your lens is getting weak.

2. For advance user: Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
- Look for DVD/CD-ROM drives and delete the subkey.
- Restart your machine.

3. Let Microsoft FixIt help you:

Worst case - Get a new CD/DVD-ROM for the replacement.

Don't forget to thumb up! ;) Good luck!

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner


Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

I think your DVD rom tray is stuck in the mechanism.
You can try this. Search for some sefti pi or some long but very thin rigid wire. look at the dvd drive. you wil find a small hole at the front of the body. insert the wire or the seftipin inside like 10 cm. you will feel like pressing a button by the seftipin or wire, i hope it will pop the CD tray out. Once it is out, remove your cd from the tray. open and close the empty tray few times, do not use lubricants as they will damage the belts inside..
It should work.
Cheers!
