    What make & model CD drive are you referring to? What is the make & model of your computer system? Without that information it's impossible to determine the problem.

My laptops dvd drive do not dectect if there is a cd in produces some sort of crcking sounds.

Cracking or more likely "clicking" noises indicate that the internal gearing is worn and the laser that reads the surface of the dvd / cd is not aligning properly. The internal bearing of the drive may also be worn, resulting in the disc spinning out of alignment.

Either way, you may need to get a replacement drive

It all depends on your operating system if it has the drivers. Usually it installs by itself automatically. But if you don't find the drive on my computer, then you will have to go to control panel and click the "Add new hardware". Allow it to dectect the drive automatically, then follow all necassary procedures.


To install, go to control panel, click system, locate "device Manager" and check if you will find your ROM there. Right click on the drive and click update drivers, but your system must be connected to the internet to do this.

Best wishes.

and also check your device manager in windows to make sure the drivers are present.If none of this help you may need to replace the drive.If so here are dell's insrtuctions on how to do that.

Acer issue: itunes wont recognize my cd burner

The DVD burner *IS* the CD burner (the same drive does both jobs). Does Windows itself recongize it? (if so, is it able to burn CD's using it?)

CD Burner not detected.

Check your different jumper settings in the drive; Is your CD RW drive set in the proper setup as a slave or master drive; or as a single drive.Check in your bios, in the disk management section if your CD RW is detected.
