My gemini cdx2400 not reading the dis

Are you saying your computer will not read a disk?

Is this a disk you made or someone made and gave to you? If so most there are times when the computer will have trouble reading them.

Try using a store purchased disk such as a music cd that you purchased. If it reads and plays it, then the drive is ok.

Click Start/My Computer and see if your CD Drive is listed as a device. If not, that's your problem.

If the CD Drive is not listed as a device, then remove the power cord, open the case and remove the two cables that plug into the cd drive then plug them back in. Then try rebooting and see if the cd drive is listed as a device in My Computer.

If the drive is still not listed, then you will need to Remove Upper and Lower Filters.

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks

Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

D:not accessible,incorrect function

If you've used the Drive before, then one of two things is possible. First, your disk may not be formatted. If you're using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you can format the CD if it's a RW (re-writable) type disk.

If it's not an RW type disk then you must use a software package to burn the pics to the CD. Also, make sure the type and writing speed of the CD is compatible with your system. Some older CD writers won't use the Newer 8X type disks. You'll need the newer type to us that type disk. If you're using older disks with a newer driver, then go purchase new disks and try again.

To make sure the driver itself is working, put in a disk you purchased, which you know is good, and see if your drive can read it. If not, then the drive is bad.

I need registration key

If your computer is the 2400 like the catagory you have posted to, then your product key should already be on the side of your computer. If you lost it but still have the original disk set that came with the machine, You can reinstall from the original Dell disks and not be asked to activate your product since the key and activation are preloaded from the Dell factory disk. Otherwise you will have to buy a product key from a computer store. It will probably have to be purchased from a small computer store or online since places like Best Buy and Staples were forced to stop selling the XP products in January. The average price for an OEM CD with Certificate of authenticity is about $99 depending on where you get it. Hope this helps...

Cd rom does not read CDs.

The fasted and easiest way to eliminate Windows being the cause of a read problem is to remove the IDE cable from the drive and insert a CD into the drive once the system is powered on again. You should notice some change in the LED of the CD-ROM, at least it should blink for a few seconds. Usually if the LED goes out or turns red it would point towards a faulty drive - which you have already seem to establish.

One last shot to try before dumping the CD-ROM for good is to update the Firmware of the ROM drive - altough a long shot I have seen this work a number of times.

As Insomniac says CD-ROM's are very cheap to purchase these days

Insomniac I am remember when these ROM drives were very expensive - do you remember when the first Burners came out? As slow as a tractor and expensive as a Ferrari

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd

Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.

I purchased a pack of Memorex CD-R rrecordable 52X 700MB 80 min. discs from Staples and I was told I could use these to transfer pictures from my drive c. When I put the CD in to the drive D it asks me to...

Cd-R does not need formatting. They are ready to burn. There is probably a problem with your cdr drive.

A cd-rom drive is not a burner.

Are you sure you have a burner and not a cd-rom?

If you do have a burner, try another few disks. If it still says insert disk then your burner has crapped out.

My e drive wont start up any product

When you are refering to the E drive, do you mean your dvd/cd drive?. If so 2 things to try, first a lens cleaning cd rom, secondly if still no nada, go to my computer, right click, down to properties>Hardware>Device manager. Click the '+' sign on DVD/CDROM Drives and highlight your drive and right click then Delete. Re-boot you PC and let windows find your drive again automatically, then try playing something again. If still nothing it's time to replace the drive, they are very cheap nowadays.
