My dvd rom not read any dvd


You dont need any software to "Read" a cd/dvd. The drivers needed are automatically loaded when you install the drive.
If you need software to make "Burn" discs, there are a few good free programs.
I use CD BurnerXP.
Imageburn "IMGBURN"

just google free burning software for others

Hi,


Try to use brand new scratch free CD/DVD. Try to Unplug CD/DVD ROM from laptop and Plug it again. If problem persist, replace your CD/DVD Rom.

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this


You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.
