CD drive does not work

The CD drive won't read or play a CD. It spins when I put in a disc so the unit is powered. The hardware manager says the driver is bad, but when I go on-line and reinstall, it says it is up to date. I get error code 31.

Try uninstalling it, then reboot to let windows automatically install and reconfigure the device. Usually the windows native drivers are all that's needed.

Why my portable dvd playing won't play when i put a dvd dics in?


If it takes and accepts the disc but will not play it is either a mechanical issue (table not spinning the disc) or if not reading disc it is likely a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit---

DVD/CD drive won't recognize discs. System says corect driver installed


Is it a disc that someone made on their computer and gave to you or is it one you purchased from the store? Computers sometimes have a hard time reading a disc that someone made and gave to you. Try a disc that you purchased and see if it plays it.

See if you can update the driver in the device manager.

Uninstall the DvD Drive from the device manager, then reboot and let it reconfigure everything. Go the Control Panel and under System find the device manager. Right Click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Reboot.

Reseat the the disc by unplugging the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and remove the screw that holds the dvd drive in place. Pull the drive out, then put it back it.

If you are using Windows Media Player try the VLC player.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com andin the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Downloadand install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It'sa very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formatsand media. It's totally FREE.

My pioneer car stereo DEH-P77MP won't play cd's anymore. the radio still works, but on the screen it says cd error AO or A0. i was wondering what problem this code relates to? hope you can help,...


This is a common error with these units when they get dusty from putting dirty disks inside the drive. Just go to your local staples and or walmart and get a 5 dollar disk player cleaning kit. It looks like a plain cd but has small fibers that come out of the bottom of the disc that clean the laser as it spins and tries to read it.

CD/rw won't play or record how do I fix it? Dell Dim 5100


First check the device manager and see if there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation point or red x for the CD drive. (Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager, slight variation with OS version.) Try to update the driver (see Dell.com for downloads). http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIMENSION%205100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid

Next check if the ribbon cable came loose from the motherboard or the CD drive (open the case). Try cleaning the unit with a disc cleaner (if the unit will spin the disc).

Optical drives are fairly cheap (~$20 for OEM internal DVD R/W drives) so you are better off just replacing the drive (assuming you do not want to upgrade to an internal Blu-ray drive). The current drive is IDE so you may want to stick with that (the motherboard only has 2 SATA connectors). To remove the old drive, unplug the computer, disconnect all cables, remove the side and front panel. Disconnect the power and data cables. Hold down the sliding plate lever (push toward the bottom of the computer) and slide the drive forward. Put the screws in the new drive and slide it into the space. Plug in the data and power cables, close up the computer and turn it on. The cables should only fit one way.

I hope this helps.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

Cd drive led light flashes orange four to five times then stops


Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

Won't Play Games, DVD and CD fine


I am guessing that when it was refurbished, it was because of a disc drive error... so i am about 90% sure that they didn't flash the disc drive and that would be their mistake. Disc Drives have their own memory and would still be able to play cd's and dvd's without problems... but if they are not flashed correctly through a sata computer with the correct hardware, they will not play games. My opinion is that you should contact the place which you bought it from, it's not your fault.

Dell e510 cd dvd rw not working


Try going into your Device manager start right click on my computer click on properties then click hardware tab. Under this tab click device Manager. Under disc drives find the drive that you are having problems with and right click on it. Then try to update drivers. If this dose not work do the same thing but this time uninstall the drive. After it uninstalls go to your controll pannel and click on add hardware. It should find and reinstall the cd rom and it's associated files and hopefully work once again.
