SOURCE: Dvd cd writer does not detect disc in drive when i want to burn

Sometimes you need to have a burning software like nero or roxio, if you want to get music from an audio cd you can use rip by going to the windows media player but if not tell me what kind of software you are using for copying.

Hi,

the yellow exclamation mark, states that the device is not functioning correctly.
options are:-

1:) go to the manufacturers website, and see if you can download a driver for this.
2:) try uninstalling the device, reboot and see if the device manager, finds new hardware, if so reinstall the device drivers.
3:) eject or remove the device, re-insert ( possible dirty-bad-loose Connection.

All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.

SOURCE: My cd rom drive will not recognize any cds or

When I had my problem, no cd was recognized, music or data. But when I paced a dvd movie in there, and started up my PowerDVD, it would play just fine. I ended up replacing the drive. In fact, I got an upgrade because the first one was CDRW/DVD-ROM, and now its a DVD burner. 86 bucks including shipping.

SOURCE: CD/DVD rom drive not working

Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Disc Tray will not open


My Gateway model #AR-230 tray would not open after several years of use. Removed the black sheet metal cover from the player to access the tray mounting screws in the black plastic tray frame. By tightening or loosening the little screws on both sides of the front of the tray mechanism, I got the tray to slide out (open) reliably again. The problem is the very close tolerance of the internal tray mechanism with the front case opening causes a mechanical hangup or interference. chemicalladdie

E Drive refuses to read DVDs.


Maybe problem is that the lens of your DVD is dirty or maybe totally retiring. Because know what? CD/DVD writing wont last for a long period of time, theres also a limitation in burning. If you think that I am wrong Kindly try this:

* Clean the lens with CD/DVD cleaner
* Open the your dvd drive and clean the lens manually with cotton [also look for any damage on the board of the drive]


Hope it help!
