CD-ROM Not responding

CD-ROM works for a little while after I turn the computer on, but then it suddenly stops working, mostly in the middle of me copying something onto a CD, and the blank CD is stuck in the drive i.e. the drive will not open.

You can get the disc out by inserting a pin in the small hole on the cd draw, but when this happens it means the laser is failing to read the disc and the cdrom is failing, unfortunately the cdrom cannot be changed in the acer notebooks.

My computer has suddenly stopped detecting the Samsung CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive. It does not display E: drive in the Windows explorer. I am not able to play any kind of discs.

Right–click My Computer, click Manage, and then click Device Manager. make sure there are no yellow or red boxes in the left. if it is rede or yellow, right click and update drivers. If this doesn't work, turn your computer off then unplug. Open the case and re-seat the cables. Plug system in, and turn on. If you can't see the drive still under my computer you will need a new drive.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.

Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

My cd rom keeps saying no disc and the computer

First thing to try is to clean the DVD lense. a lense cleaner can be purchased any from Best-Buy to Wal-Mart. It's essentially a CD with a built in brush. This will clean the lense.

if that doesn't work, it may be time to replace the drive. DVD-ROM drives can be purchased for as little as $20 now, it may be worth your time to just replace it. It is possible that the motor that spins the DVD has gone bad, but it is highly unlikely.

How to do a system recovery when my cd rom drive doesnt work?

got to have a new cd-rom drive mate, most practical approach.

other options are network boot (done in offices with many computers), USB boot (if your BIOS supports it & you need to have a USB device with the bootable image of the system disk), etc.

Cd rom has stopped working. the light is flashing as if it is working but the cd is not spinning.

Check the disk for scratches, and try other disks to make sure the problem is not unique to that one disk. If all disks fail, then double-click on My Computer, then double click on the CD-Rom drive and see if a CD will run. The "autorun" option may have been disabled, which is very noticeable if you've been used to this feature working. To re-enable autorun, right click on the cd-rom drive in My Computer, and go to device properties - recheck the autorun or autoplay option.

If none of the above resolve, then turn off your computer. Open up your computer with screwdriver. Unplug and replug the cd-rom driver. Restart computer. Test cd-rom drive again.

If it still fails, Make sure you are connected to the internet (I am assuming Windows XP - Vista may vary): Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> DVD/CD Rom Drives - se if the drive has a yellow exclamation by it - if it does, then right click on the yellow exclamation, and click install drivers - windows will most likely find a solution

If all of the above fails, write back with more details, including model/manufatcurer of cd-rom drive, and model/manufatcurer of computer.

Sudden death of Dell Axim X30

Hello edil, This sounds like a corrupted ROM file. The ROM stores all your operating system and pda's firmware alltogheter. If it becomes severely corrupt the pda doesn't boot properly or doesn't work at all. This appears like a fixable problem however you will need to have it fixed in a service center, because they need to acces your device's bootloader or rewrite it using some special hardware, then they will rewrite the memory with a fresh rom file. This will have you device up and working. However please avoid to send it to dell as this will get expensive. Most pda services are able to do this and the generic ones will do it cheaper. Try to look for a cheaper, generic "pda service" center. Hope it helps.
