Re: logitech camera

Sometimes CD drives (especially laptop drives) will have problems reading certain CDs, and it usually causes the computer to freeze for ages while it tries to read it. Eventually it should give an error message saying it can't read the CD, but you'd have to wait a very long time for this.

Try the CD in a different computer. If it works ok there, I'd copy the contents onto a memory stick and use that to install it onto the computer.

Hope this helps!

Toshiba satellite freezes when cd inserted

Sometimes such type of problem occurs when CD is scratched. If CD is not scratched then try these troubleshooting steps:

  • Stop unwanted programs while inserting CD.
  • Also stop Anti-Virus.
  • Fix windows internal errors like registry errors.
  • For an instant fix i would suggest to use Reginout.

I put in a cd and it now wont recognize the drive at all. i can't get the disc out, no idea how to fix it

Hi Laurenleighd

Have a look at your CD/DVD drive and you will see a small pin hole that about the size of a needle. You can take a straightened paperclip and push it in there to open the CD dirve manualy. After you've removed it, try another CD that you know is working and see if you have the same problem. If this CD also get stuck in there then we know the CD/DVD ROM may be faulty.

Is this a Dell Laptop or Desktop?
Can you open and close the Drive with or without anything inside it?
Can you hear any noise coming from CD/DVD ROM when you insert a CD?
What Happens when you insert any other CDs or DVDs that you know is working fine?

When you open your MY Computer/Computer in the Start Menu, Can you see the drive there, or is it not showing the CD dirve there at all?
If the you are 100% sure this is not a power issue, then it might be the CD/DVD driver that needs to be re-installed.

My hp cd slotd donot download when I try to download a game

Hi Papawgram,

Please provide more informaation:

What Windows version are you using?
When you insert the CD and close the CD drive, does it make any noises and please describe?
Do you have this problem with all Games or CDs when inserting them into the CD Drive r is it just this one?
When you follow the steps below what happens?

If it is making the spinning noise when you insert the CD and close the CD drive , please try by opening your My Computer/Computer when you go to -> Start Menu. Have a look at the CD drive(usually the D: or E: drive) and it should show the icon of the Game on the CD. You can start(download) the game by double click on the icon.

Computer no recognize CD-ROM Drive

If it is a "swappable" device, then first shut-down your computer. Remove the other device that currently is installed in the drive-bay. Insert the CD-ROM drive, and restart your computer, so that it can detect the "new" hardware.
