Is the disk a DVD or CD? Does your Computer have a DVD rom? This little freeware program will help you ID your system: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/

Why won't CD/DVD RW drive won't recognize DVD disk?


Make sure you have the most current driver installed for that model. Go to IBM website and download, install. Once installed, try reading the disk again. That usually solves the problem.

And - all CD/DVD drives don't recognize all CD/DVD's - lots of different formats. Check the documentation for that drive to see which formats it can read.

DVD drive will recognize data discs but will not recognize DVDs. I.e. when you place a DVD in the drive and open windows explorer you are told that there is no DVD in the drive. However it will...


try running the fix-tool provided by Microsoft on this web page

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems

If that fails then my suspicion is that either
1) the drive has failed
or more likely
2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. This basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.

However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions

My advice would be
1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine
2) disable the MS CD burning
3) run that Microsoft patch
4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it

Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software

Optical drives do not recognize disk when trying to load new disk


If you cannot read those CD-disks in _any_ computer, then the disks are "bad".

If you can read those CD-disks, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD drive. Find a smaller computer-store -- often they will remove the "dead" drive, and install the "new" drive, for $0.00, or for a small fee, if you buy the new CD/DVD-writer from them.

Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

Dvd won't open program


Does your dvd drive opens other dvd's if it does, that means your dvd has gone bad but if your dvd drive fails to play any dvd's than it's a problem with your dvd drive.

Best way to test it would be to insert a new empty dvd and see if your dvd drive opens it.

Disk drive does not recognize or read a disk


you could try removing the drivers from your device manager by going through contol panel or by right-clicking on My Computer and then on the hardware tab. you would find it under cd/dvd rom drives.Just right click and click on uninstall. Then if you dont have your driver disk you might be able to download it from softpedia.com. If you have installed drivers more than once you might be able to roll-back drivers but the best bet would be to just uninstall and re-install the drivers.

Hope this helps
