If you have checked the connections to the player and it is getting power, you will need to delete the CD/DVD driver that is installed and reinstall it. You can find the driver online. What is the manufacturer and model number?

I have compaq presario S2021a and it appears that the dvd/cd driver isn't loaded even though i have a place put them, it doesn't recognise it


Assuming it is beyond the warranty to have it fixed, you should be able to go the web site for the maker of your DVD/CD player and after selecting the model number you have, you can "download" the driver even if the device is not working.

Also, depending upon how old your system is you might just have to replace it. They are fairly cheap to buy either on-line or from an electronics store.

If you don't know the name of the device you have installed, go to www.belrac.com they have free download that will show you EVERYTHING that is in your computer by brand name. You can even print it out for your own reference.

If you want to install a new replacement unit, it really is easy. Instructions will come with the new device or even before you buy one, go to www.youtube.com and type in "how to replace a DVD/CD on a computer" and there will be a large selection of videos to give you an idea of how it is done.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 Ford Freestar Van. The DVD player just quit working, appears it may not be getting any power to it. The manual doesnt have anything about the dvd player even being in the van. I was going to...


The manual shows several fuses for the radio/tape/cd players.
It doesn't show anything for a dvd player but i would think it would use the same power feed as the other. In thepassenger compartment take a look at fuse number 5 and 11 and 20. if they are all ok then in the power distribution box under the hood look at fuse number 56, 59 and 62. Fuse number 62 is the listed as the dvd fuse. However the systems use multiple fuses so that parts of have power all the time, Such as the clock and alarm systems must have power all the time in order to work.
Now not all of the fuses I have listed may be being used but these are all the ones listed for all the different sound systems used.
If all the fuses are good you may have to remove the player and look for a manual release to open it.

You may want to load the update to a CD and try it. The web site should have good instruction on either load device. I had to go to my System Setup on the TV screen to make it work.

Dvd or cd shows loading but doesn't do anything else


Hello,

The reading lense may be dirty or need replacing. Try purchasing a DVD cleaner (a CD with a small brush on it, e.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_11?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=dvd+cleaner&x=0&y=0&sprefix=dvd+cleaner )

If this doesn't work then the reading lense may need to be replaced. I'd recommend taking the player back to the store and asking if they can repair or replace it for you.

It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.
Any computer-store technician can easily "manually" open your current drive, and remove the CD/DVD media.

Won't reconize disk in player


Well here is your resolution for your problem.

As you saying that when you insert any CD or DVD in Player its shows NO DISK.

Well Sometime what happen is if a CD contains are not compatible with Player than it wont work with it.

Or if you had burn that CD or DVD from your personal computer or laptop but it is not burn in proper format than also it wont work in PLAYER.

Well even if CD or DVD is having any scratches on it or it is Used uncounted enumerable times than also sometimes this things happen and it wont work in PLAYER.

Well before Inserting any CD or DVD in Player Just check the above mentioned points.

If everything is ok with the CD or DVD but than also its shows the same problem than get the CD or DVD cleaner liquid spray or even you can use Spirit to clean the CD or DVD and than Insert it.

After doing all this but if its shows no result in it than go to the company dealer and ask him to change the head of the player and you wont face this problem afterward for sure.

if you still have nay quarries regarding the same or any other you may reply me.
