My CD/DVD drive does not work

When I put in a CD or DVD, the system activates (hear the whirrr) but it stops and does not recognize that there is a CD installed. I do not get any error messages....just nothing.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

I have bought a new piece of editing software ive checked that it runs with vista but every time i insert the Cd in to the drive it does not seem to recognize that thers a cd in the drive


try to run the cd on another system. if the computer recognizes that there's a cd in the drive, that may mean that your DVD Drive may be going bad. Usually DVD Drives dont fail all at once. it happens gradually. 1st it stops playing some dvds, then it stops playing dvds altogether

Blank cd's are not recognized by the Dell Inspiron cd burner


I would first try removing the device in the control panel, system, device manager and then reinstalling the driver. There may be a problem caused by a windows update. In general CD drives rarely go bad. If the CD works say for a music CD then it should work for blank cd. You may also want to check the CD type. If you accidentally used a DVD, that won't work and in some of the older CD drives, they may not handle every type of CD format.

Good Luck

Will this drive work on a vista 64 bit system?


Try putting the same disks into some other CD/DVD reader, to confirm that the disks are "good".

It definitely should work in XP, XP/64, Vista, Vista/64,
but you could have the misfortune to have purchased a "lemon", i.e., a factory-defective unit.

Got another computer to which you can temporarily connect the new drive, to confirm that the drive will work "somewhere" ?

If all else fails, take it back to the retailer, and get them to demonstrate that it works in one of their computers, using your disks. If it does not, then they should replace it with one that CAN read your disks.

Dvd/cd drive device properties state drive is


Apart from DVD, dose it recognize other Cd's? If is does then I think the lens for your drive is weak.

And if it is not the lens, then maybe you should uninstall the drive, restart your system and reinstall the drivers for drive.

You could also detach the drive from your system, while the system is shut down, then put on the system back without the drive, allow it to boot, shut down, put back the drive and see if the drive will play DVD this time.

Best wishes
