By disk you mean Hard Drive? sounds like a power problem, plug undone or board failure for that lead. does monitor come up, mouse keyboard, fans, other parts all working?

SOURCE: Dell dimension E310 DVD ROM does not recognize DVD

Hi

From the driver, it looks like it is a dvd reader.

Try to delete the filters from the registry by performing the following steps.

If u have win XP, click start and then click run and then type 'regedit' and then hit ok.

If u have win Vista, click start and then type 'regedit' in t he Start Search field and then hit enter.
Once you get the registry editor screen, click on the + sign next to computer and then + next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIINE and then + next to CURRENTCONTROLSET and then + next to CONTROL and then + next to CLASS.

Under Class, you will find a lot of folder in sequence with numbers and letters.
This time click on the folder itself and on the right side of the screen, u will find some entries.
Pls look for either 'Upper Filters' or Lower Filters' and right click on them and delete them.
Close registry editor and restart the computer. After restart, the dvd's should get detected.

If this doesnt work, then download the original drivers or any updates from the manufacturers website,

1) Go to Control Panel. Open the System Icon.

3) The device manager will list all of your hardware that is on your computer.If you see a yellow? mark oryellow ! mark next to your DVD/CD rom drive,simply click on it then click Repair. It also may tell you that it is not recognozied. Follow the directions.
4) If you do not see this in your Device Manager go to Add Hardware in your Control Panel which is next to your Add/Remove Programs icon. Click on Add Hardware and it will scan for all hardware.
** This should take care of your problem.If not then somehow the actual connection in your tower has come loose. If so you must open your tower and look for a loose wire going to your DVD/CD rom drive.
*** Please let me know if this corrects your problem.Simply email me(Phil) at: philw19642002@yahoo.com

SOURCE: i did PC restore using Dell F11 reset tool / no dvd or cd recogni

Go to Dell's support site and to their driver page. Put your model number in the box for a search and a page with your drivers will appear, download the drivers for your model and do a re-install of them. download them to a temp folder and when they are downloaded, double click and they will self install, put off rebooting until you install them all.

My CD & DVD ROM drives will not open the door so I can insert a disk. The disk that is in the CD ROM that I can't get back out will play but the DVD ROM will not play anything at all.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Your DVD rom tray may be stuck inside. Try the emergency eject by inserting a paper clip in the small hole at the front.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Dell cd-rw drive doesn't recognize when a disk is in it


You need to make sure your drive can read CD-RW. That is a different format than "+" and is not recognized in a lot of drives. Also, what software are you using to burn the document?
