If yours can’t be detected its either the actual thing is faulty “if it was working before its most likely to be” or your operating system isn’t detecting it anymore.

Assuming you have xp or vista, go to control panel “found on start menu”
Select classic mode on the top left. And then go to “add hardware” this option
Will detect all the stuff in your computer once clicked and scans. If it find you
Missing hardware then install it. Restart and all should be working if it didn’t
Detect it then you’ll need a new drive “replace it”.

But to be 100% sure then you need to remove that hardware and insert it in
Another device and see if it works there.

Dvd player wont play and when it does my computer automatically restarts


Have you installed the correct driver for your DVD player? Chances are, your computer is not properly communicating with your computer or your DVD player isn't compatible with your computer. To automate your driver update, you can install Radarsync to your computer.

If updating or installing the driver won'f fix the issue, then I suggest that you contact your DvD player manufacturer and check whether it is compatible with your computer.

I hope this helps.

THE CD/DVD PLAYER ON MY HP PAVILION a1110n WILL NOT PLAY ANYTHING. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS SPINNING BUT, IT MUST NOT BE READING. I TRIED TO UPDATE THE DRIVERS BUT, I STILL CAN'T GET ANYTHING TO WORK. THE...


First of all check if the drivers are properly installed in device manager:-
Right click on Computer and then click Properties--device manager, expand CD/DVD Rom drive and check if the driver is installed.
If driver is installed right click on it and click on delete and then restart the computer.

If the above step doesn't help then try to delete upper/lower filter in registry:-
Click Start--Run type 'regedit' and press enter and now expand the following-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
now on the right panel right click the 'upper filter' and click delete and then right click the 'lower filter' and then click delete.

If these steps doesn't help then it means there is a hardware fault with your dvd/cd drive and you need to replace the same.

Make sure you have the appropriate drivers installed. Visit the manufacturer's website, find the model of your printer, and download and install the drivers. They may also be on the disk that came with your printer.

No Sound..Can't Change Theme..


Hello, I might be able to help. It sounds like you need to reinstall the sound and graphic drivers for your computer. In order to find out which drivers to use you need to know the brand and model computer you have (i.e. Dell dimension 3000, HP 510, etc.). Visit the manufacturers website (i.e. Dell.com, HP.com, etc.) , click on support and downloads, enter your brand and model computer, and that you want to find the drivers. Finally, once you find the drivers page for your model, simply download and install them.
