Re: cd drive

Try having your cd drive cleaned. A cd drive could prevent the cd drive to read the disk properly. The drive noise is normal if the speed of your cd drive is high. Here are some links on how to clean a cd drive:

Here is the link for reducing the speed of the disk (if the sound annoys you):

Dvd drive won't read disks


If it used to work but now doesn't and you have changed nothing then the following will help.

You can try a CD Laser cleaning kit, you put a liquid on a disc and put it in the dvd drive.
It will clean the laser, hopefully this will work.

If it still doesnt work its most likely at the end of its life.

Try a Music CD, a DVD, and any other discs, make sure the discs aren't scratched.

DVD drives are extremly cheap these days,
I got a Sony DVD Writers for £18 delivered from

Its very simple to fit,
Switch off PC
Just take of side of the PC Case
Unscrew the 2 screws on each side of the dvd player, disconnect the wires .
Then fit the new one

The PC will pick it up after a restart and it wont need drivers

Cd rom and cd/dvd drive won't work. I inserted MS Flight Sim x and nothing happens. I have also tried to run the d: drive, but nothing happens.

Check the the connection cables to the CD/DVD drive inside the computer (make sure they are seated). Enter the BIOS using the DEL or F1 key at startup and make sure the CD/DVD drive is detected. If not, try replacing ribbon or sata cable going to drive.

HP CD Drive Will Not Open

Take a pin/needle, and stick it in the small hole which should be somewhere on the front of the dvd rom. This should open the drive a bit, so that u can pull it out. then close it, and try if it opens then. If it doesnt, then you will have to grease the sides of the slide (from the bottom) a bit with vaseline. open and close it manualy a few times, and try then. If it still dont work then, then you may need to replace the little black bellt which it has just underneath the tray, towards the front of the drive.

Good luck

My cd drive will not work. the cd goes in my computer makes some noise as if it is going round but nothing happens. it is like this for music cd's and cd rom's

Sounds like your drive motor gear is bad... Its time to replace the Unit. If its under warranty call your warranty provide, otherwise you will need to purchase a new drive and install it. Installation is VERY easy on a CD drive and can be done in only a few minutes in most cases.
However if you have reservations about doing it, I recommend contacting someone who is comfortable working on computers!
Sorry we couldn't fix it... sometimes they just break!

hi gavo,
since its still new, you still have the receipt with you right? better bring it back to where you bought it and let them check it instead, we dont like to void the warranty. :)

were you able to use it even just once? try a different cd, if you use cd in your first attempt, try dvd the next, try movie cd or audio cd, just to isolate the problem.

just post your feedback here,

Hi I have a samsung r20 laptop only 5 months old and the cd drive will not open it makes no noise and just suddenly stop working

It sounds like the drive has just stopped working. Since it's likely under warranty still, I would contact the manufacturer and have them replace the drive. If you have a cd stuck in the drive, you can use a paperclip in the small hole on the face of the drive to eject it and remove your CD.

Computer seems to be restarting endlessly

Its seems any one of the key of your got stuck. So please check out your keyboard first.

If problem still not fixed then, try to re-install your RAM: remove the RAM clean its connection point to the board, and placed it agin gently. then try to re-boot.

Please let me know your feed back.
