I just got the new computer. When I put a disc in the drive it usually will load nothing. The last time i tried I got the message of drag items here to write to cd but it should have already been full I have an HP DV2000T laptop. The CD/DVD Rom stopped reading cd's. Its always worked fine in the the past and for no reason it just stopped. CD's will spin, and the eject tray seems to work. But my pc doesn't seem to recognize the drive. In properties>device manager: I can't find the device listed. I've flashed the bios thinking that may be a solution but that didn't work.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Content will not load from cd's in my drive
Your cd drive cannot be detected. Check if it is detected in bios. If not two things, 1. its defective 2. loose contact. Your options reseat the cd drive for the first step, if still not detected then replace.
Since it is new, I assume it is covered by a warranty. Then ask the seller where you bought it. They have to replace or check that for free.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Probably can't help you. much Your recorded footage is lost because some CD media loses it's content after some time. Probably your disks are irremediably corrupted.
As last resource, try to use some CD recovery application
It seems that you have Autoplay disabled on your computer, OR the disk is damaged OR the disk don't have "autoplay.inf" file on his root.
The best solution is to put your disk into the drive and try to access it via FileManager: Double Left-Click on MyComputer icon on desktop -> locate the CD drive and make Right-Click on the CD icon followed by the "Explore" option selection. A new window appears which shows the CD content.
Locate a file called "setup.exe" or "install.exe" or similar, and make double left-click on it! That's it! Good luck!
The usual problem with disc drives is a little belt that drives the loading tray. It stretches with age and slips, so the motor turns but the belt doesn't. If you want to take the time to try finding one, the belt is replaceable.
On the other hand, new DVD/CD burners are only around $30, so it's usually not worth trying to repair the drive. It's faster and easier to put in a new one.
Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.
Depends on your your operating system but assuming you are using a version of windows you need to find My computer. This will open a window where you can see your hard drives & CD/DVD drives. Right click the CD drive you want to access and then click "Explore" or "Open" depending on your version of windows. Provided the disc is not damage this will allow you to view the content of the disc & drag it to a folder on your PC.
Do you still have the original recovery disc for the PC? If so, put that into the disc drive then boot the computer. It can help you either save the installed operating system or create a new one if there is a serious problem.
This could also be due to a hard disk drive failure, in which case you'd be needing to get a new hard disk. Most of the time however, just a file allocation table messes up during a power down, or some other random problem happened and just caused a simple error on the drive. I'd definitely find that recovery disc. If nothing else, you can use google to search for recovery boot disks that you can download and burn to a CD using a different computer. They can help as well.
Check the 'My Computer' for an unfamiliar drive; if as most PCs, you have a C:, D:, E: listed, these are the basics; C: & D: are the hard drive (partitioned), E: is whatever optical drive you have.
You may have others such as several named drives for a digital card drive may be present too.
Depending on how your camera's memory is recognized, you should have a drive you didn't before.
Open the last named drive to see what (if anything) it shows for folders and files. If it brings up an error message about having nothing to read, work your way forward in the alphabet and check each.
Customarily, Win will add any new drives at the end of the series of named drives.
If you find folders on a drive later in the alphabet, open them to look at the content.
If you find a bunch of .jpg files, you are there.
If you find nothing, you may have to download an additional driver since the Praktica is not a real common camera, Vista may not have provided a default driver for it.
Please check If your CD drive is detected on BIOS, if yes then Put a Windows XP bootale CD (checkout for the Service Pack) and choose boot from CD in the BIOS and go for "repair option" after the Agreement "I Agree-press F8" session. complete the installation then try installing the printer.
