My cd drive does not recognise cds


Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is
recognized

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

You may use any CD/DVD drive lens cleaner to clean the lens as it may be that the lens in the CD/DVD drive is not able to recognize the disc due to accumulation of dust. Next, you may perform System Restore to the time when the CD/DVD drive operated normally. If the issue persists then you may try reinstalling the Operating System.
If the issue persists even after performing all the above mentioned steps then the issue may be Hardware related and the CD/DVD drive may require service.

CD/DVD drive doesn't work


try removing the drive from the laptop, then go into the device menu and delete the drive. Restart. Shutdown again and insert the drive, restart - it should show a "new device" recognized. If it doesn't, the drive may just have failed. I've had it happen to a dell drive - it just doesn't see the drive at all.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.

MY LAPTOP CD/DVD DRIVE DOESN'T WORK


check the registry

click start > run > type regedit > click ok.

In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
In the right pane, look for UpperFilters and LowerFilters, right click each of them and then click Delete. (If you only see one then that's fine).

NOTE: Make sure not to delete anything else or else your system will not boot to windows.

After deleting upprer and lower filters, exit from the registry editor and restart your system.

Check if your cd/dvd drive is working.

Try with a CD/DVD lens cleaner CD. This will rectify any static charge or dust in the lens.

If any heavy phisical impact happend, may be the drive contacts are improper. Conform there is a DVD-RAM Icon presents in the My Computer window. If not found try the following steps.
1. Load CMOS default valus and give a proper start up and check the DVD-RAM drive in your system.
2. Shutdown the system
3. Gently push the drive inside the laptop's base cabinet. Remember apply a gentle force.
4. Turn on the system and check it out.
5. If the above steps failed, Shutdown the system, and remove the drive from the motherboard. Clean the electronic contacts using a pancil eraser or with a nice cloath. Insert the drive again, then verify.

Note: In all the above steps, try with more than 2 CD/DVDs 'cause laptop drives are too sensitive and can not read some CD/DVDs even thay have a little scratch.
