My laptop doesnt have the cd drive. It doesnt read my cd or dvd..


If you have more than one computer and other computer has dvd drive or cd drive you may use it by networking this computer to that one! You may also by external cd/dvd drive for your computer as well which may be easier!

CD driver do not read any file


Hi there,

Does it recognize any cd you put in the drive or is it only one cd it doesn't recognize?

Please check if the cd drive is recognized by your computer:

Click Start go to My Computer (XP) / Computer (Vista/Win 7)
and check if you can see the drive. (if it's not there you may have to reseat the drive to make sure that the cables connecting it to motherboard are tight)

check the status in the Device Manager:

On your Keyboard press and hold the Windows Key then press the letter R
once the Run box comes up type in devmgmt.msc and the device manager should appear.

On the device manager look for the cd / dvd drive see wether it has an exclamation point a red x mark or a down arrow or it looks normal.

if it has a yellow exclamation point press and hold the windows logo then the letter R again and type regedit:

On regedit go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and the delete the upper and lower filters. Close Regedit and restart the computer.

if it has a red x mark right click on the cd drive in the drive in the device manager and the choose uninstall and restart the computer.

If it has a down arrow right click on the drive and click Enable.

If the above steps doesn't work or if it doesn't recognize all types of media you put in it, that might mean that your cd drive is busted and it needs to be replaced.


Hope you find this helpful!

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

> it does not appear in "My Computer"

Does it appear in "Device Manager" with a "yellow-triangle" or "red-X" superimposed on its icon?

Since the tray opens/closes, it is getting electrical power.

Do you hear the drive spinning a disk, when you close the tray?

Wont read or recognise there is acd inserted


When you open my computer do you see the drive in the window? If the drive does not show up in this window you can check two things, check to be sure that the cable connecting the drive to the mother board is good. And the other issue could be that the drive itself has gone bad. If it is unable to read any cd's then you probably need a new drive. Be sure to put in several cd's to be sure it is not the cd disk.
