Clean the lens with a cleaning disc or open the burner and clean manually with a soft cloth. Check the IDE cable, if possible replace it. If these procedure did not solve, replace the burner with a new one.

I had the same issue and finally - after coming across your question via google- got frustrated enough to start clicking thingsand hoping for the best. Lo! After six months of my Inspirion sticking a loaded disc drive at me like a two year old would their tongue, I have solved the problem somehow.

I don't know what the hell I'm doing with computers, never taken a class; but like any tool or living thing, sometimes things just want attention and will act up to get it. Here's how I convinced it to work:

By disabling the DVD-ROM device, resetting the system, and re-enabling said device, I successfully solved the problem. In case you aren't 100% sure how to go about that, I have supplied a step-by-step guide which I wrote as if it were for my father - a proud caveman.

1.) From your Computer folder, right click drive E: and select properties.

2.) Enter the 'Hardware' tab, highlight the Sony CDRWDVD device (I'm assuming we have the same software), or whatever appears to be your actual DVDROM reader.

3.) Hit the 'Properties' button near the bottom of the window, enter the 'Driver' tab on the next pop-up.

4.) Find your 'Disable' button and push it with no fear in your heart.

5.) Close out of both pop-ups, and Vista will present you with the option to Restart your laptop.

6.) Say yes, and get something to drink while you wait.

7.) Enjoy your drink.

8.) Now that the system has restarted, return to your Computer folder. You will notice that Drive E: is absent.

9.) Trust me.

10.) Right-click anywhere on the folder besides on an icon and select properties. This will take you to Control Panel > System & Maintenance > System

11.) So long as you're with me still, you will see a list of options on the right side of the window. Select 'Device Manager.'

12.) Find the DVD/CD-ROM Devices icon, click the plus sign to expand. Find the device which you previously disabled (again, mine is SONY CDRWDVD CRX880A ATA DEVICE), right click, and select 'Enable'.

13.) Is an unlucky number to finish on.

14.) You're back in business!

As with anything in computers, there are thousand ways to do the same thing, so I have merely opted to write this list in precisely the order I did things. If it doesn't work, feel free to contact me @ DigitalGrampa@Gmail.com with any sort of abuse.

I have a laptop hp pavillion 15 and I cant put cd in it?


What operating system OS? XP><? WHAT OS?
what is full model number or this 15- "????
the HP suport page shows 63 different model 15s , hark.
ok, did you try a store bought CD firs. CD-CA?
not copies or burned CD-r.
CD's come in 2 size, normal 800MB sizes and 200MB tiny.

many CD players not do the tiny ones, lacking spot there to hold it in place. (do find a pC that can copy this tiny CD to USB stick)

first try a real CD, say an install disk full size, CD (not dvd)
or a store bought CD-DA,compact disk digital Audio, say with
songs from say, Johnny Cash. (#1) then click the disk. in explorer.

the PC to AUTOplay a disks takes 3 things
1: autoplay turned on,
2: CD drive must work and be GOOD.
3: and real CD in the tray , closed. (real means with valid content)

#3 is easy no, use a real CD to test the CD, from store in the music department. (reading CD-r can fail on many older CD drives)
tests , many; , ill do some. now. (for sure a year 2000 PC)
then if say its a program disk, say you put in the HP install disk.
called the media kit, disk from HP, or from microsoft. (a real CD)
real means not CD-R , (recordables)
go to explorer, in windows 10 its now called, "THIS PC"
does the the CD show up in this true name Explorer.?
does the CD drive show up in Disk manager, in CP?>control panel..
does the CD drive show up in device manager>?
all those are a YES,
if all shows up, then look for program files on the disk using explorer.
do you see files, thre, (install disks)
one FILE might be setup.exe, can you run that.? double click it?

if yes, then autoplay is turned off in your unstated OS.
if not the CD drive is bad or the CD is not any good.

I have My Autoplay off since it was invented so viruses on said disks
can not autolaunch, a not so good thing.-

now 1 example (not XP,vista , w7,w8,w8.1 )
in windows 10, to turn on this autorun ( horror)
click settings in the run menu. w10
click devices
click autoplay on left side.
behold. turn it on or off, and blow the on button, pick a rule.
or turn it on and pick "ask me every time.".. for safety.
under removable drive.

tell OS , tell what PC this is, 15 does not answer that question
please. for 10x better help.
PS; click HP15 here and see all 63 models.

Matshita BD-cmb uj-120 not present anywhere on my acer aspire 5920g yet its the default cd/dvd drive! help please.


Use HIREN CD. See if there the cdrom is working. If it's working, it's a problem with your windows. Reinstall and you will solve this. If Cdrom doesn't work even in Hiren - change the cdrom unit !

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

My cd burner wont burn


Coleman, Sounds like a faulty drive if it opens and closes. Dontel, just because you have a CDrom drive does not mean that you can burn CD's. Is the drive rewriteable? Does it say RW or rewriteable on the door of the CD unit? Also you can click on Start/Mycomputer and see if the CD drive shows RW.

Cant install xp to dell c400 with external cd-rom


This is how I did it, you may or may not have the ability. A basic knowledge of Dos is necessary 1) I used another laptop but you could use an adapter to use the hard drive in a regular computer. 2)boot with a windows 98 boot disk, fdisk it to a fat32 partition, make the hard drive a system boot disk (format /s c:) 3) copy the i386 folder and all its contents from a full or full oem (not branded) disk to the laptop drive, also copy smartdrv and highmem.sys from the floppy (speeds thing up dramatically) and create a config.sys file with device=highmem.sys 4)physically install the hard drive back into the C400, boot to dos run smartdrv.exe, then go to the i386 folder and type winnt.exe (enter) wooo should work.
