    Have you all ready re-installed the driver software? Was it listed in device manager? What is the odds it is all burned up? Have you installed software lately? Is updates on?

My DVD drive D works fine. Problem is with one particular CD.


this is a very common problem for all CD/DVD drives... sometimes.. there are CD-R DvD-R brands that will not work with your CD/DVD drive... its compatibility issues... another possibility is that the CD burning was bad.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

Boot error, won't even boot with xp cd


hi.
you might wanna check if your XP is a dvd or cd. if it is a dvd your cd drive can not read dvd cd's. if it is a cd than your cd/dvd drive is not working. another thing you can do is to take out your cd/dvd drive and plug it back in. to see if it works. if the drive is working, you can try a different XP CD to see if it is working. if it is still doing the same thing. you might wanna check your hard drive to see if it works.

hope that helps.
thanks.

Did you try axcessing the drive manually ??? Start > My computer > D:(you cd drive),, If it doesnt show up then the drive may be damamged. If it does you just need to associate the .ext with a program. Double click on the drive if a option box doesnt open up, you should see the audio files.. just right click on one and select properties. You should see the program the file is associated with. Just click change and select another program.
