If its making noises that you havent heard before and you can't get it to read any cds your putting in there then the drive is definitely bad and needs to be replaced.

The CD loading mechanism has the fault. Check its loading belt. If it is OK, replace the loading mechanism.

I just recieved a system fisher dac-9345 and the cd changer wont eject the cds what could be the problem


Sounds like you've got a problem with either the Drive Motor, Drive Controller or Drive Belt.

It could be an easy fix but it depends on the where the fault is.

Does it make any noise or effort to open the tray?

My cd drive wont recognize blank cd's so that i can burn files or cd's


Hello, Consuelo.

I'm making the assumption that your CD drive did burn CDs and now does not.

It's possible that your CD drive is faulty. But, some suggestions:

Run a disk drive head cleaner.

Try different CDs

Reinstall the CD driver (Device Manager - Right-click on the CD drive and select "update")

Hope this helps.

    Compaq presario 700us will play cds wont play dvds


    Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.

    Hope i give you some good observation.

    Jensen vm9311ts problem


    The player thiinks the CD is still in the player. you have a shorted or open sensor. Usually thee players have 3 phto sensors to tell the controller that a Disc is inserted , or ejected or present. Sometimes a wire or piece of lint covers a sensor and makes the controller think the CD is still there. Get you a can of Air from Radio Shack and blow out the DVD drive You might get lucky and this do the job.

    Load problem and error message


    Did you try to reset it? Look for a small button that only be press with a toothpicker or something that small. Another way to reset is to disconnect the battery. Goodluck.
