Firstly, try reconnectnig it and make sure you push it all the way in. Then try this:

1. Got to Run on the startmenu. And type regedit.
2. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass.
3. Go to the first folder that starts with {4D36...
4. Delete UpperFilter and LowerFilter.
5. Reboot the unit.

If it still doesnt work after this try a full system recovery. If that doesnt fix the issue you might need a new CD-PCA board or mainboard. But it can also be a DOA(dead on arival) DVD-ROM.

    Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

    I have an NEC ND-6750A installed in an HP Pavilion ze5570us laptop. I installed it after the original cd drive failed. Windows recognizes the drive but considers it a CD-ROM drive with no DVD...


    did you buy this off of eBay? this unit may need to be "flashed" so to speak. the term is firmware upgrade. the HP website has this and i have supplied the link for you. here is thre link for the firmware update:
    http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/disclaimer/en/6750a/261_orig.zip.html
    windows should not only recognize it but should reload the drive with the correct parameters.

    Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


    I have the same situation. My computer has a
    DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

    Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

    I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

    I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

    Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

    HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


    The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.
