How do I get my dvd/cd to start when I put it in my computer?

You can go to file explorer or file manager and click on the drive letter of your CD/DVD which is usually like a Drive D:, E: or later drive letter.

Once you click on the right driver letter in file explorer it's going to try to read it. It will then open up the files on the CD/DVD or try to start the application you may have installed for reading a CD/DVD.

If you don't have an application installed to view the CD/DVD it may give you a message that "Windows could not find a suitable application to open your file.." but it will ask to pick which application you'd like to try and open the CD/DVD with. Something like media player should show in the list if you have it installed.

In a Sony vaio the Fujitsu hdd reports an error and is unable to boot. When I hook the hdd up to a different system the files are accessible and usable. (ex. You can play music that's on it). How can I...

When you connect the Fujitsu to the Sony laptop. use disk management utility to see how the how the sony is characterizing the Fujitsu. If you can access the files on the Fujitsu from another computer, the Fujitsu is not faulty. Your connection with the Sony is the problem. Disk management utility instructions are listed below:

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.

The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.

A drive that is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.
I hope that this information is helpful, if so, please rememeber to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

DVD and CD drives not working

Drive may need a firmware update. If you have internet access then go to drive's manufacturer, and check for an update. There could also be a drive configuration problem, need to see if drives are recognized, by the system.You can right click my computer select explore and look for drives or go to settings, control panel right click system, open, then hardware, device manager. Then look for cd and dvd drives. If you see yellow exclamation marks or question marks then updates drivers. This is a start, try to see if the drives recognized.
