Try reinstalling the driver, If that does not work take it back to the shop and explain your problem if its new.

Toshiba P25 cannot read cd

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

My optiarc dvd rw ad-7200s a. t. device for my desktop Inspiron 530S will not play dvd's ..What can i do to fix this?

Hi tripping,

First I would check all the preferences in the software I was using and make sure everything is set right. If I could find nothing wrong there I would go to the Device Manager, uninstall the drivers and shut down the system. On reboot if it is a plug and play device, Windows should reinstall it. If it is not PnP, go back to the Device Manager an manually reload the driver.

To get to the Device Manager - click Start, right click on My Computer, click on Properties, click on Device Manager tab or link. XP has a tab, Windows 7 has a link.

Hope this helps.

You can read but you cant write isn't it. This is a hardware problem. So contact a technician or buy a new one. I suppose buy a new one better don't spend money on repairing.

DVD+/-RW/CD-RW NEC AD-7203S drivers No problem - just simple me need drivers for this device? for installation on other PC, new system not understend this device and ask driver

Windows 2000 & XP & Vista & 7 have "built-in" drivers for *ALL* CD/DVD drives. So, no specific "driver" should be necessary.

What errror-message(s) do you get?

Does Windows ask to connect to the Internet to search for drivers?
Did you permit it to connect?

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem
