HP sucks!


Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD. This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program

GO TO THIS LINK

To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then, click Run in the File Download dialog box and follow the steps in this wizard.

Its something that was installed or an update that was installed... This happens on any computer not just HP.

Toshiba satellite A205 - cd/dvd drive doesn't work


Hi there.

The CD/DVD drive uses Class Filter Drivers. These have probably been currupted or are missing. All you should need to do, is re-install the Chipset Drivers (Intel).

Here's the link:

Let me know if that works.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error


DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.
