Most likely case if is toast. drives don't last long, they aren't built for constant burning everyday use. they are built for people who would use them every so often. you can update the driver. just go to the manufacturer's website of your computer and type the model number in and find the driver.

My CD rom is not working


No matter what type of laptop you own or how you use it, the CD-ROM or DVD drive is an important part of the unit. With the CD or DVD drive in place, you can play your favorite music or watch your favorite movies, so when that CD or DVD player stops working it is important to get it back in service as soon as possible.

1.Locate the bypass hole on the CD-ROM drive. There is a very small hole, generally located underneath the eject button, on every CD-ROM drive. Unbend a paper clip and insert it into the hole until the CD tray pops out.
2.Remove any CD that is in the tray and replace it with a CD laser lens cleaner. These laser lens cleaners are available at computer shops and electronics retailers.
3.Run the laser lens cleaning program, then try to play a CD again. If that CD fails to play, replace it with another CD and try again.
4.Shut the computer down and remove the AC power cord if cleaning the laser lens does not resolve the issue. Turn the laptop upside down and slide the battery release lever to the unlocked position.
5.Remove the battery and set it aside. Then locate the screws that hold the CD-ROM drive in place and remove those screws. Slide the CD-ROM drive out of the bay, then slide it back into the bay until it snaps securely into place. Replace the screws that hold the drive in place, turn the laptop back on and try to read the CD again.
6.Log on to your computer and right click on the "My Computer" icon. Select "Properties" from the menu and click on the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager" button and expand the CD-ROM section. Right click on the CD-ROM and choose "Update Driver" from the menu to download and install the latest device driver from the CD-ROM manufacturer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

CD DVD ROM doesnt read dvds when i insert the disk the light turns on i can hear the dvd turning but later on it stops. turn and stop again. then it doesnt read the dvd anymore


Hello,

how long have you been using this CD ROM? I suspect the laser (lens) of the CD ROM. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the CD ROM and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the CD ROM cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new CD ROM.

Good luck...........

Dvd works in Power DVD program but cds (music) not working?


Make sure the DVD/CD rom has the latest drivers from Dell.com and that all of the updates have been installed for windows.

I've found that when using Windows 7 32 bit, that the windows drivers work fine for CDs on my Acer Aspire laptop.

Maybe try another program for the CD playing, downloadable from the Internet.

Maybe try to use a cd-rom lens cleaner if the lens seems to be dusty or dirty.

Good luck on this repair.

The DVD ROM drive only plays CD's


You may not have DVD playing software installed or compiled correctly. The easiest was around this is go to Filehippo.com, download and install VLC media player.

Its an excellent media tool and free.

Hi there


Will first of all is it a dvd rom/ cd rom drive or just a dvd rom, because you cant use cds in dvd drives! Second of all, make sure your driver is fully updated, it might be missing something that it needs that will fix the problem after you update it!
