    The notebook has a bad case of yuck. It doesn't even recognize that there is a drive - even asking to locate hardware. Laptop has several other issues with that are impacting speed and responsiveness. Anti-virus program seems to have created havoc.

Simple diagnostics is the way forward, ensure you are using DVD-ROM and not DVD-RAM or DVD-R as this machine may not be compatible with them. Try a DVD movie or a data DVD e.g. Windows Vista, if you are trying to burn, try a different make of DVD if you bought a large batch from one supplier. Failing that, the hardware may be faulty, check the Compaq website for diagnostics tools. Good Luck!

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM

your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

Having a trouble with my DVD-ROM - IBM ThinkPad T42

Internal the pickup assy. (the laser) there are three components that read the discs, one for DVD one for CD and one for the DVD-ROM its likely that the DVD-ROM laser has gone out. Take the drive out and get the part number and look it up online on ebay or the like :-)
