Re: cd drive

First verify the CD rom is correctly installed in your computer, access "Start" - "Control Panel" after "System" then "Hardware" after "Devices Manager" in list localize CD-ROM and see your drive, if not in list, your drive is incorrectly installed or damage has occured, verify the data and power cable has plugged, if the cable is ok, try buy a new cable or change the "slave/master" in mother board.

I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...

> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

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.

Emachine-new-disc door used 3 times, now it will not open. Help.

Open "My Computer".
Point at the icon for the CD-drive.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on that icon.
Choose "eject", to open the door.

If that does not work, then exercise the WARRANTY on your NEW computer to get the problem fixed, at no cost to you.

I hit buttom on the side do not open or do I go in to the menu to open.

I understand that the CD/DVD Drive is not ejecting. Are you able to view the CD/DVD Drive icon in the My Computer window? Also check if the CD/DVD Drive is listed in the Device Manager. You can uninstall the CD/DVD Drive driver from Device Manager and restart the Computer and then try ejecting it.

Open "My Computer".
Insert a "data" CD, and hold the LEFT-SHIFT key down for a minute.
Watch the icon for the CD-drive change from the "standard" icon to something specific to the data CD.
Right-mouse-click on the CD's icon, and choose "Explore",
to open Windows Explorer to view the "data" files on the CD-disk.
