Kindly check first your software of your system.. sometimes occurred due to low performance of a system (software). do one thing, if the music your playing is from the disk... try to copy all that music from the disk and paste temporary to your hard drive.. once your done coping.. try to play the music from you hard drive.... if still same operation of your complain, means that the problem was on software....

I'm trying to burn a music cd and the comment pops up. " disc burner or software not found". My internal cd dvd burner is internal and it's not even showing that I have an E: drive now....


Firstly there is a qwerk with windows 7 in that the dvd drive is not always there in computer. You will sometimes see it there and at other not. Dont worry. However what cd burning software do you have? the most popular are Nero and Roxio. If you do have some on your pc then reinstall it and hopefully all will be well.

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

A couple of suggestions.
1) Download HP Support Assistant to check for updates on your machine
2) I assume you are using Windows Media Player. Try another free program like VLC. Its handy to have 2 installed so you can toggle between the 2 if one is having problems.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
