SOURCE: i cleaned out my start up folder and now my cd-dvd

you will want to check the device manager to see if the drivers are not working properly.

Go to start then right click on my computer and go to properties
On the left side of the properties window you will see device manager click on that and find the dvd/cd-rom drives
click on the plus icon to the left of that and it will show you the drives right click and select update driver and then select search automatically for updated drivers.

Hi!
I assume you are using Windows Vista. To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start , type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue .
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters , and then click Delete .
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters , and then click Delete .
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Thanks for reading my suggestion and I hope this helps.

    Some DVD-players only read 'DVD-R' disks.

    Be sure that the "blank" disks you are using are compatible with your DVD-player.

    I have a Dell Inspiron and the CD/DVD doesn't work. How can I fix it?


    Replace it with a new unit, or if you are clever enough remove / dismantle it and clean the optical reader with cotton bud / tissue, usually fixes them.
