After inserting the cds,nothing happens bar a clicking sound,not the usual whir ,the cd icon shows on the screen but nothing happens


Does the drawer open and close, when you push the button.
If so, you are getting electrical power to the drive.
If not, check that power-cable is still connected to the back of the drive.

If you don't hear the drive "spin" the CD, something is wrong with the hardware -- either it's not detecting that a CD is in the tray, or the motor that spins the CD has died.

Either way, spend $40 and buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
Remove the old one, and take it to a computer-store,
so that they can match the power and data connectors on the old drive with the power and data connectors on the new drive.

Hint: if you take the whole computer to a small computer-store, they may remove/install the drive for a small fee, if you buy the new drive from them.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ230P. It has a Matshita UJ-842D. It was working fine until today. The drive shows up under 'My Computer' and 'Device Manager' however when I put in a CD or DVD it doesn't do...


Sounds like it is your power supply going. I know this sounds way off base. But I have seen it many times. First this happens with the CD or DVD as they have are lower on the list for power allocation than other devices for power. If this is it next the hard drive will stop responding. This has been my experience in these matters. It might be the drive but I would say 70% chance of power supply.30% chance of drive.

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

When i insert the cd/dvd in dvd drive and copy some thing from the cd/dvd and instantly playing the music the sound of music is coming discontinously why


#1, try to do nothing else while recording. Second, when the computer start up, and the start up sounds plays, does it sound bad? If it does, you are having problems with windows.

Cd drive not working


it seems you need to have your cd drive cleaned. you can use the cd cleaner cd fond in many super stores or computer stores. If your drive is a DVD drive, you need to get the DVD driver cleaner cd.

Game will not install at all


You can try to not double click on your dvd drive, because when you double click, your computer tries to run "autorun", you should browse your files from explorer and try to do one click to your dvd or cd drive, than run your setup exe, if its still freezing, try that cd or dvd at another computer, if it acts same,you can be sure your game dvd is broken. Go to your seller.
