I put in a cd and it now wont recognize the drive at all. i can't get the disc out, no idea how to fix it


Hi Laurenleighd

Have a look at your CD/DVD drive and you will see a small pin hole that about the size of a needle. You can take a straightened paperclip and push it in there to open the CD dirve manualy. After you've removed it, try another CD that you know is working and see if you have the same problem. If this CD also get stuck in there then we know the CD/DVD ROM may be faulty.

Is this a Dell Laptop or Desktop?
Can you open and close the Drive with or without anything inside it?
Can you hear any noise coming from CD/DVD ROM when you insert a CD?
What Happens when you insert any other CDs or DVDs that you know is working fine?

When you open your MY Computer/Computer in the Start Menu, Can you see the drive there, or is it not showing the CD dirve there at all?
If the you are 100% sure this is not a power issue, then it might be the CD/DVD driver that needs to be re-installed.

Hope this helps

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

My d610 does not recognize my cd drive


Is the USB-compatible drive recognized when connected to some other computer? If OK, then the drive is OK.

Is _ANY_ USB device (memory-stick, camera, mouse, keyboard, printer) recognized when connected to any of the USB ports on your computer?
If not, then the USB device-drivers for Windows have not been loaded.

Drastic: backup all your data files, bookmarks, and music, to an external hard-drive, and reinstall Windows from the Dell-provided "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs.

I have a dell diminison 2000. The cd-rom will open ,but doesn't recognize a cd. IT say there isn't a cd-rom drive. It just disappeared? Is it possible that the eye reader went bad? It doesn't show up when...


If you feel comfortable opening the case, check the ribbon cable connection and make sure it is solid at the motherboard and the CD-ROM drive. First, make sure the pc is off, unplugged and you are touching metal at all times during the process. Power back on and see if that does it. If not, could be drive failure or virus problem.
