Click start, run, type regedit

Navigate to this registry key:

Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" entries.

If you have more than one key with that number, use the first one.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...

Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

Can we change dell latitude c610 floppy disc drive for advd drive


Yes you can. On the bottom of the laptop there are 2 slide releases, one releases the battery the other is for the multi bay. With the computer off just slid the release and the drive will slide out forward. You can pick up dvd drives on Ebay and other sites for about $30.00 and you can even get dvd burners for your machine. If windows is running you can look in the bottom right corner and click on the eject hardware icon and stop the floppy or cd/dvd drive and eject the drive with the machine on. If the laptop is on you do need to stop the drive before you eject it or you can damage the drive and the laptop. I hope this helps you, if so please rate my solution.

Can't find dvd drive in my samsung x15 plus laptop

turn off the laptop, phsically take out the drive from the computer. Then put it back in and make sure it snaps into place. The turn on the computer and go into the BIOS. It should show up in there now and if it does then it should show up in windows as well.

If you do this and it still doesn't show up in the BIOS, then the drive is bad and would need to be replaced but I feel once you reseat the drive back into the slot, then the laptop should see it again.

CD/DVD player not working

You have done all the things to try and get the CD drive to work, but it looks like your CD/DVD drive has died.
Best thing is to get another CD/DVD drive, make sure the connector on the drive is the same as your old one.
You need an operating CD/DVD drive to install Windows, unless you can get the BIOS or F12 to boot up from the USB port. The USB stick needs to hold all the Windows files.
But then sometime you need a working CD/DVD drive.

My dvd/cd drive has dissapeared, windows can't find it I can't find it manually

Provided the drive is seen in the system BIOS, just missing in the OS, this should resolve:

If the drive is not seen in the BIOS, and it is removable, remove and reseat the drive. If still not seen, try another drive, if still not seen in BIOS, a Motherboard is a likely replacement.
