Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices. In the first tab verify that the volume is not in its lower level and also verify that the option "Mute" is clear, then clic OK.

A while ago, my laptop's DVD drive stopped reading CDs. A after a few attempts , it displays the CD/DVD as an empty one. The CDs are not empty or too scratched because I tried them on a different computer...


Hello there!

Please note that a CD-ROM drive can read and in some cases write to a CD inserted into it. This is done by means of a fragile laser mechanism that scans the surface of the disc as it spins at high speed inside the drive. Drive failure can occure from a scratched laser eye, mechanical failure, overheating, or simply years of use. You will want to ensure the drive is actually broken before buying a new one as replacement or send it for a repair.

Please follow these easy steps:

1. Open the CD drive tray and insert a CD. If you have a tray that opens by pushing a button, push the button. For slot drives, try to slide the CD in. On slot drives, if the CD will not go in fully, the drive is not getting power.

2. Wait and listen for a "whirring" sound from the drive after the CD is in and the drive tray is pushed in. This may take a few seconds.

3. Look at the status light on the front of the drive if one is present. It should be blinking to indicate that the device is reading the CD.

4. Replace the first CD with another one in case the first CD is damaged or unreadable. Repeat steps 1 through 3 with the second CD.

5. Wait to see if anything comes up on the pc screen indicating the CD is being read or run. A notification may appear asking if you want to play the CD or run the software. This indicates a functioning drive.

6. Click on "Start" followed by "My Computer" and locate the CD-ROM drive usually labeled as "D:/" or "E:/". Double click on it. If the CD drive makes no noise or an error message appears on screen indicating the disc can not be read, the drive may be broken.

If an error message appears indicating that the CD-Rom drivers are missing this may indicate a software issue and not a broken drive.

Regards,
fossildude

My computer wont play the sound when im trying to listen to music or play a movie.i would like to know how to get the sound back on


Have u recently installed a new DVD Drive?

If so and even if so, you need to have an audio cable installed connecting the DVD drive to the Sound Card in order to get sound when playing a MUSIC CD or DVD player from that drive. So double check that inside of the PC.

Next, go into the Audio Settings in the Control Panel and make sure sound is not muted.

How do we listen to aCD in 5 channel suround sound without having the TV on we can only get straight sound. We have a Yamaha RX-V365 av receiver.


Do you listen to audio CDs via a CD player or DVD player? Pure audio CD is only 2-channel, so either TV or the DVD player is doing the mix to 5 channels. But you can choose the sound mode via remote - there should be modes like 5ch/7ch stereo, where the same signal is going to all speakers (I you this mode for listening to radio sometimes).

How can i make the audio out work on the Plextor px-708uf?


Hi,
dependant on your Sound Card.
do you have the cable connected From The DVD Drive ( spdif digital ) Or analogue audio Cable ? this is a thin cable usually grey/white cable coloured red/black/ground or earth.
This connects from The DVD to the motherboard ( CD ) Or to your Sound Card ( CD Or IN ) If you don,t have this Cable connected you won,t get Sound from DVD To Sound card or on-board Sound from The motherboard. Also check your sound-cards drivers Are Installed correctly. Finally open the sound manager In My Computer, And check that a device is selected, Or Isn,t Muted.

This should Solve Your problem.

Teac lp- u200 cd player doesn't work


Sicne this is a new system, don't waste time on it. Return it for an exchange. The CD portion is not working. The reading message indicates that the unit detects a disc, but can not read it. This is usually a problem with the optical assembly or the processing board. Neither should be a problem at this time. Replace it under warranty.

Audio problem by DVD Play


You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because
it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With
a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog
for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in
digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select
properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties,
then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM
device.
