I am sure that it is because of your device driver. Try removing your driver and install the latest driver from the providers site

Where do I insert CD?

Good question. The images on the website are not good enough to determine where to put in a CD/DVD. The specifications from the site state that there is a DVD/CD drive, which is good because many new desktops don't come with a DVD/CD drive.

My recommendation is to right-click on the Windows Start button and open Windows Explorer. In Windows Explorer, click on the computer. You should now see your DVD/CD drive under the line Devices with Removable Storage. Right-click on the DVD RW drive and select "Eject" and the drive should open.

Good luck,

I have a Medion DVD-/CD- Writer and it does not allow me to play certain DVDs and does not allow me to drag and drop photos to burn on to CD or DVD. I have gone to the Medion website to download drivers...

click start control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to cd/dvd rom drives right click properties then properties again then tick enable cd digital cd audio for this cd rom device or scroll to dvd regions select the no _ for your specific area

your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd-rom then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps

Hi have a medion 2310 and what to restart it like new who can i do it

Firstly you will need to have all the drivers you need for whichever operating system you are using and copy them to CD. Download from Now you need your windows CD start laptop with cd in and you'll get a message saying press any key to boot from CD/DVD. Now just follow instructions to format and reinstall operating system. Now in stall all your drivers and laptop should be working like brand new

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns

Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.

Eject button won't open

Try using the eject function in your computer by right clicking your drive (CD/DVD). If it works, then the button of your hard drive is not working due to a defective contact point.
