CD drive is not detected or recognized

My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv2000. I got is a little less than 2 years ago. Its running Windows Vista.

My CD/DVD drive isn't working. I noticed it first in "my computer" there is normally an icon for the C drive (hard drive), and D drive (the CD/DVD drive). I noticed there was no icon for the CD/DVD drive. Windows Media Player is not recognizing the drive, it says "a CD drive is needed to rip music from CD's."

Winamp is not recognizing the drive, there is no where to play an audio CD that is in the drive.

The worst part is, I went to check the driver in the Device Manager and no CD drive appears there.

I can press the button on the side and the drive opens fine. When I push it in with a CD inside I can here it start working like it is reading the CD.

I noticed this and didn't think it was a big deal, then I reformatted my computer for a separate reason, and the CD drive is still not being detected at all.

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up

It could be that there is a static build up and that you need to get rid of this.

Remove the battery and the power cable and hold down the power button for around 30 seconds.

This should fix the problem...if it is the same as mine!

My hp pavilion dv2000 is not showing the cd/dvd-rom icon or drive on my laptop


Go to HP's Website and search for your laptop; it is very possible that your computer does not have the drivers installed; look for drivers, then "Disk Drives" and download the file.

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


yes

because it's using an AHCI  SATA driver

there 2 ways to install XP on your laptop

  1. If you own an external floppy disk. You can insert the driver before the installation begin. the setup will ask you to insert third party driver by pressing F6 at the first of installation. Press F6 then insert your SATA driver. choose it. then setup will detect your hdd. you can download the SATA driver form here:http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/HP-Pavilion-dv2054ea-SATA-Driver-550.shtml
  2. It's very hard to find an external floppy drive today, unless if you are an OEM or retailler. second way is you can insert the driver to XP installation CD, but it's very complicated. Or you can download a XP installation CD with sata driver here:http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


For the laptop with no hard drive detected, this is most likely because Windows XP does not recognize SATA drives by default, which the laptop most likely has. To solve this, you will need to enter the BIOS setup utility (most likely Delete or F1 on startup). From there, you will need to change the drive mode to Compatibility mode. I'm not sure where this would be, but if you check in your laptop manual, you can probably find this somewhere.

For the 2519TU, download and install this for the LAN driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30001-30500/sp30264.exe it should work just fine.

Good luck!
