Do you see the CDrom drive from the Device Manager? Right click on My Computer and click Manage. Click Device Manager and on the right panel, expand the DVD/CDROM drives. Check if your cdrom is on the list. If you can see it, try to right click that and Update the driver. You will need to have the installation disk for your cdrom.

If you dont have an installation disk, try to right click it and choose uninstall the drive. Next, you reboot the computer. The system should rediscover the drive.

If this does not work, please let me know.

I have a RDS stereo and it won't play my cd's. It says player error


RESET YOUR PLAYER AT DEFAULT SETTINGS. SWITCH IT OFF. SWITCH IT ON AND INSERT CD. GIVE THE PLAYER TIME TO READ. DON'T PRESS ANY BUTTONS TILL IT COMPLETE IT'S READING. IT WILL PLAY THE CD.

ALSO CHECK CD'S ARE BRANDED AND NOT COPY FROM COMPUTER. FEW COMPUTER WRITE CD NOT HAVE AUTO PLAY OPTION.

IF PROBLEM NOT SOLVE PLEASE INTIMATE.

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

Cannot play newer blu ray discs and now cannot play cd's. "This disc can not be played" error message


power off your dvd, disconnect the plug from the power source and then reconnect it again. Power on the unit again and try to resume normal operation. If it cannot still play a dvd much less a cd, then you need to have it repaired. At the most, the flex needs to be replaced or your lens is damaged in which case it needs replacement. Try also locating for a reset button on your unit. Just press the reset button if there is one on your dvd player for about 5 seconds to restore it to its original factory setting

Rover 25 CD player wont play MP3 format discs


It sounds like your Rover dosn't have MP3 capabilities. You will have to use standard audio CD format (not data/MP3 format). You will only be able to burn about 15-20 songs but they will play in any cd player.

Problems with D drive


Sounds like your D: drive isn't a DVD-ROM drive.

Have you been able to run DVDs from that drive before?
- If not, then you probably have a standard CD-ROM or CD-RW drive, which is not capable of reading from a DVD. You would have to purchase a DVD-ROM drive in order to play or copy anything from a DVD.
- If you have, let me know so I can help you further.
