It sounds like the technician forgot to reconnect the data cable or power supply to the cd drive. That's one possibility, anyway.
Take a look in the device manager or the bios setup and see if that drive is being detected. If not, you could open the side of a desktop and, after grounding yourself out against the metal of the case, see if the cd drive power cable and data cable are connected correctly. Perhaps remove and reinsert it. Check both ends of the data cable. If it's a laptop, you could take a look at the support site for your system and see if they have a service manual available for download that will walk you though the steps.
Or take it back where they "fixed" it. They should be able to patch it up pretty quickly while you wait...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How do I fix my computer CD writer Drawer to make it open.I banged it with my knee when it was open,I pushed it closed and does not open any longer.Its the HP 583 Pavillian model,not new but works wel


Many times you will see a small hole next to drawer, try something thin lika a paperclip & give a gentle poke inside. Feel for a button type spring response.

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject


on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..

CD-ROM drawer deos not open


There could be a hardware issue or something stuck in there.

In front of the CD drive you will see a pin hole as shown in the image below.

Insert a pin in the hole and and press it. The tray will come a little ahead, you can pull it out. See if there is something getting stuck or any cd inside it. Close it and try to open it with the button. If it wont work it is a hardware issue and need a replacement or repair.

Note: You can take out the tray with the help of the pin, even if the PC is turned off.

Shrey

6mmy cd-rom /dvd burner while burning a cd the cd got stuck and i had to jopen the computer to get it out, but when i put it back there is a cord came loose with p4 on it and i don't know where it goes,...


When you press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the CD-device, does the drawer open/close, i.e., is it getting electrical power to the motor that moves the tray?

You say "won't burn" -- will it READ an existing CD disk?
If so, then spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Look for a WHITE coloured rectangle near the CPU that will fit that 'P4' cable from the power-supply.

Or, look at the "back' of the CD-device.
There should be two cables: one for "data" and one for "power" that connect to the CD-device.

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Hello,

Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.
