Will not recognize cd when inserted


Try This:
1.click on start->all programs->run and type in run box devmgmt.msc
You wil find a device manager box now you need to click on the symbol called "scan for hardware changes". Now once the changes is complated then restart the computer and see if you can view the cd's. But before doing so check that whether the cd drive icon is showing in the My Computer or not.

2.If the above solution dosent work out than try cleaning the lens from the lens cleaner disc. You can purchase it from any local computer shop.

3.If the above two dosent work out then probably its a chance that you need to change the cd player.

I would like to use my usb flash drive to install and troubleshoot my windows xp operating system. My dvd cdrw drive is not working. I have an error stating that the explorasy.sys file is not there when I...


We are going to do this the easy way....you need a computer of course and one that has a working cd/dvd player, a flash drive and a windows installation disc. A recovery disc will not work...you need a windows installation disc.

Go to the control panel > folder options > click on the "View" tab, scroll down and UN-check the box the says "hide protected operating system files", now click the bubble above that says "Show hidden files and folders.
Now get out of the control panel and insert the windows disc in the drive.

Go ahead and insert the flash drive into a usb port and let windows recognize the device and load it. It will give the device a drive letter.

After the disc loads, it may appear on your desktop and say to install Windows....just exit the program but don't eject the disc. Open "My Computer" and look for your cd/dvd drive and right click on it. Choose "open" from the choices and a list of files and folders will appear. Select all the files except for a file that says "desktop

Copy all the files and paste them into the flash drive that you can find in "My Computer" The files from the disc will now be written to the flash drive. Once the copy is completed, the flash drive can now be used to boot the computer.

Insert the usb drive into the laptop that needs fixing and power it up. After the flash screen appears, tap the F12 key to bring up the multi-boot options. Choose USB drive and hit enter. The laptop will boot off the usb drive and initiate the Windows files.

I have an HP Pavillion Slimline and the cd reader is not working any ideas?


When you say "not working" , can you clarify that a bit?

  • Is the drive opening?
  • Is the drives light flashing when you insert a disc?
  • Do you hear the disc spinning when you insert the disc?
  • Does the cd-drive show in "My Computer"?
There is an issue that I have ran into multiple times in the past few weeks that causes this issue. It is related to a Microsoft Update. To remedy the problem, goto this page and select the "Fix It" icon.

My disk drive is stuck and won't open


Hello,

Try first a soft eject: Go to my computer, Point the CD-ROM drive, right click mouse button, and choose eject. If that dose not work, examine the face of the drive and look for a small pin hole. Insert a blunt paper clip in the pin hole and press gently. The drive should open.

Hope it helps.

Nothing happens when disc Inserted


If there are no activity lights, or a rhythmic flashing on the drive, then you may simply need a new drive. Small computer stores are usually the best place to go to get a replacement at low costs.
If you are just popping the disc in and waiting for something to happen, then your computer may not be automatically running the programs from the disc. In which case you will need to manually access the drive and run the correct program.
Good Luck!
