Well i don't know a lot, but i can answer you with what i know. I had my memory reader card who died on me, so to make it fonction again, i had to find the driver for my new one. because, when it come from the warehouse, all drivers goes together. So if you had another peripherique on your pc, you have to make it work with the others like a chain.

Cd software disc will not load on to my computer. Isn't being recognized


If in case the cd was not recognized upon loading it to the computer you may do the following to check wether the cd is faulty or the cd drive.
  1. Verify that the correct disc (CD/DVD) is used when prompted to insert the disc.
  2. For programs on DVD, verify that the drive containing the DVD is a DVD drive and not a CD-ROM drive. Most DVD drives will have DVD printed on the front of the drive. For programs on DVD, consider the following:
  • DVD drives can read both DVD's and CD's.
  • CD-ROM drives can read only CD's.
  1. If multiple disc drives (e.g., CD-ROM and CD-RW, or DVD and DVD-RW, or CD-ROM and DVD-RW, etc.) exist on the computer that can read the disc (refer to the items under Step 2), insert the CD or DVD into the other drive and try the program again.
  2. If you are attempting to install a program and the installation does not begin after inserting the CD/DVD into the proper drive, refer to the program's instructions for the installation procedure.
  3. Clean the CD/DVD in the following manner:
  1. Place a small amount of nonabrasive liquid soap on the shiny side of the CD/DVD.
  2. Using your fingertips and warm water, gently rub the soap on the CD/DVD in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the CD/DVD thoroughly and dry it using a clean, soft T-shirt or lint-free towel. (Do not use paper towels or tissue paper.)
  1. Try to use a different CD or DVD in the drive to see if that disc can be read.
  2. If possible, insert the problem CD or DVD into the DVD or CD drive of another computer to see if the issue persists.

Last night I installed windows 7. After that my LG DVD writer is not working properly. I can see the DVD RW icon. But when I insert DVD/CD it can't read it and shows the drive is empty. I tried a program...


Hi
You installed windows 7 with the same drive right? After logging in insert the same disc and check whether it is reading or not.If it is not reading check the data cable,(clean and reinsert).
I think the problem is with the drive. When drives gets old it can only read few discs. Writing will fail too. Get a new new drive, nowadays price appr below 1k.( SATA).

CD/DVD Is Not Recognized
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Many times, after inserting a disc into the CD or DVD drive, the disc is not recognized by that drive. CD-read and DVD-read issues can be caused by many sources. Perform the procedures presented in this General Computer Advice article when troubleshooting CD-read and DVD-read issues.

Begin with the first procedure and continue through the list. Try using the CD or DVD after each procedure is completed. For any procedure that requires changing current system settings, record the original settings before completing the procedure.

Epson Stylus SX100 installation CD is not read


Hello,

There are chances that the installation CD is faulty itself. If it is the original manufacturers installation CD, and appears to be free of scratches and smudges, this is most likely not the case. I would insert a combination of at least one other software CD and one recordable CD in the CD drive of your computer CD/DVD drive to see if these discs are being scanned, read, and show data on those CDs. We want to pinpoint the problem, to make sure that the hardware failure of CD Drive is not to blame, but it could be.

A Disc can spin around in an optical drive, and have laser read issues, and still end up being faulty, and eventually need to be replaced.

If you determine that you need a new Printer installation CD/DVD, and all other data discs work fine in that optical drive, you can download printer driver software directly from the manufacturers web site.

If you provide me all the model and manufacturer details of your new printer, I can locate this direct download link for you, and provide that to you.

Best of Luck!

Xpertdragon.
