Hey,

try a lens cleaner on the drive. dvd / cd lens cleaner.
you can also try blowing some canned air into the drive bay if theres dust.

most likely if this doesn't help you have a faulty drive or a failing drive. Suggest warranty repair or replacement.
Let me know if you need anythingelse.


Thanks,
Ekse

Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error


Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

My computer is slow and the is not reading or burning CD/DVD


Slow computer problem would be different then that non reading disks. Slow computer could happen in many cases, a virus is taking up all the memory, or defragmented hard disk, programs that required more memory and cpu speed. CD, DVD could fail to read due to loose cable, BIOS setup or damaged drive.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

My cd rom/dvd drive will not read any disc


Hi,
Check the cd-rom power is on or not. Then also if its not reading then Insert an DVD/CD cleaner disk and follow the steps. The cleaner disk is available in any of the computer shops. There may be some lens problem. After trying above steps if again same problem occurs then you need to replace the cd/dvd rom drive. Thank you.........

Try a 'quickiee', While the power is OFF! disconnect the cables or cable to the duel dvd,[IDE (long 26 pin) & power] turn on computer, goto to control panel >system icon>system properties>Hardware>device manager>DVD\CD-rom Drives. NOTE:: you should see ONE instance of your CD\DVD drive, REMOVE it.Turn computer off., RECONNECT the power & ide cables to the dvd. Turn power on, the computer SHOULD see your hardware, if it don't, It could be semi-damaged,or internattance [sometimes is, sometimes not working]

Good day, Forwork

I recommend, you take out the hard drive, put in the other IDE port, presumming is IDE drive, and let the DVD cd rewritable on Cable Select.
Another try, is Start Up on Save mode, and uninstall the drivers for your particular CD/DVD device, and restart your PC, then the system Should install them automatically, or you can do it manually. this should fix your problem.
Good Luck! (presuming you use Windows Xp)
