You can go to BIOS setup and check that CD drive is recognize there or not, If not then there must be some problem with CD Drive or connectivity of CD drive with computer, If it is showing there then you can follow this tutorial and change with the registry.

SOURCE: I am trying to replace the hard drive in emachine

Go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM.

How?
To go into BIOS Setup you start tapping either the DELete key, or the F2 key, ->Right After you see the eMachines logo. If you miss this window of opportunity, simple press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys, At The ->Same Time.
This will restart your computer. Try again.

If you try the DELete key, and this wasn't the proper key, then use the above, restart your computer, and press the F2 key -> As Soon As You See the eMachines logo.

In the BIOS Setup main menu, look across the top for Boot Options. You cannot use your mouse to navigate around in BIOS Setup, you have to use your keyboard. Press the Right Arrow key to highlight Boot Options, then press the Enter key.

Your BIOS Setup may be different for this model. You may have to go down to Advanced BIOS Settings, in the main menu, and highlight it. Use the Down Arrow key to highlight Advanced BIOS Settings, then press the Enter key.

In the Advanced BIOS Settings sub-menu, look down the list for ->Boot Options. Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight it, then press the Enter key.
In the Boot Options sub-menu, you will see a list of boot devices. Floppy Disk drive, CDROM, HDD, (HarDDrive, or really -> HarDDisk), and perhaps a fourth one.

Use the Down Arrow key and highlight ->CDROM. Look down at the bottom of this menu, and see what the Navigation keys are. It won't state -> Navigation Guide, but that's what it is. You want the -> Change Value, keys.
It may be +/-, or Page Up/Page Down. (Plus + key, or Minus - key)

Using the Change Value key, move CDROM to the top of the list. (You have to hold the Shift key down in order to use the + key)
You may have to highlight the device on top of CDROM, and change value of it, in order to get CDROM to come to the top. Keep moving the boot devices, until CDROM is at the top of the list.

After CDROM is at the top, press the Enter key.
Now press the F10 key to save the changes you made. Now press the y key, and then the Enter key.
If you do not press the F10 key, and then the y key, it will be like you have done Nothing at all!
You haven't saved changes.

You may also have the words -> YES, and NO listed, instead of the Y key. (It's shown as a capital Y for clarity. Press the y key. Do Not hold the shift key down, and press the y key)
You can either use the appropriate side arrow key to highlight -> Yes, or just press the y key.
Now press the Enter key. Your computer will restart.

Your computer will now look in your CDROM drive for a boot disk. (It can be a CD drive, CD burner drive, or DVD drive, or burner)

IF, you do not have the Windows XP disk in your optical drive, or IF you did not get it in your optical drive before the computer booted up, don't sweat it.
Just make sure the disk is in the drive, and then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys,
AT THE SAME TIME. Your computer will restart.
(Not 'shouting')

SOURCE: my emachines el1360 doesn't recognize cd/dvd

Try going to safe mode. Restart your computer and tap f8. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode, and once you are inside safe mode. Try running the dvd or insert the sd card. If it runs well, then install RadarSync or any automatic PC updater then update the drivers. You can also manually update them by going to the website of your computer's manufacturer. Look for support and download.

Movies/videos are choppy and unwatchable... Only problem with pc.


Try lowering your screen resolution, and don't download / view videos in HD. Test with lower like 480 and maybe 720. Mine can't even handle 720 by the way.

My macbook air disk drive doesn't take any cds in


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

For simple but in-depth troubleshooting, I suggest this link for you to review in regards to working toward resolving the Macbook Air SuperDrive CD /DVD issues.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the guide provided above does not resolve the problem, then the issue here is that your USB Superdrive (unless you are using a different non-Apple 3rd party CD/DVD drive) is experiencing a mechanical failure.

This Apple external USB CD/DVD SuperDrive is fairly straight-forward in its use.

Now if the issue you were having had something to do with only a DVD or CD constantly ejecting automatically after you placed such a disk in the drive, that would be different.

In this case however, if the guide above does not help and you are experiencing the SuperDrive working intermittently, my advice, is to take your Macbook Air with the external SuperDrive in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or Apple Authorized service provider for a free diagnostics to determine the root cause of the SuperDrive failing intermittently.

Feel free to reply back if you have any questions regarding the information I have provided you.

Regards,

LG GH22NS70 Super multi DVD Rewriter just used


Power cable attached, interface cable attached, (Dta cable), and the small audio cable attached, plus computer on, and Windows loaded.

Windows XP:
1) Click on Start

2) Right-click on My Computer

3) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list

4) Left-click on the Hardware tab

5) Left-click on Device Manager

6) When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of - DVD/CD-ROM drives

7) Right-click on the name of the optical drive.

8) Left-click on Uninstall

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on.
You should get a pop-up out of the system tray, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one will follow, "Found XXXX DVD drive"

No? Doesn't work?
Try using another 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(The IDE harddrive shown, is just an example of a device that uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Mistakenly referred to as a 'Molex' power cable)

Make sure the interface cable (Data cable) is plugged in tightly.

Open "My Computer".
Insert a "data" CD, and hold the LEFT-SHIFT key down for a minute.
Watch the icon for the CD-drive change from the "standard" icon to something specific to the data CD.
Right-mouse-click on the CD's icon, and choose "Explore",
to open Windows Explorer to view the "data" files on the CD-disk.
