Problem with the DVD/CD Combo Drive

I have a laptop and the combo drive in it has got a problem. When I am putting any CD then it is not working and the DVD/CD Drive is showing empty, but when I am inserting any DVD then it is working fine. I am not able to play any CD while I am able to play all DVD's recently. Please help me in this problem.

This drive reads a dvd but not cds. do you have

may be it's only a DVD ROM drive not a combo,
you will need a combo to read both DVD and CD
if it was reading CDs earlier then the CDs might have scratch in them, try with new CD.
did u make changes to the cables inside, if you did check if the cabels are connected properly to the drive

I put the dvd in and nothing pops up, so where do go to view the dvd

Be sure that the DVD unit is plugged correctly into the laptop. Second, if nothing "pops", go to my computer and open from there the dvd content. If the dvd it's not present on My computer, it means that it's not correctly connected, or it's broken.

Cd- roms will not play

It definitely sounds like a faulty drive. Usually on a DVD-CD combo drive, either the DVD or CD feature will fail, but not both at once. Luckily, this is not an expensive part especially if you are able to replace it yourself. Hopefully this helped

You may have a trojan horse which is similar to a virus. They usually come from MySpace or such. Related to the mythical trojan Hoarse, they disguise as something good and once on your computer will infect vital areas of the system. You may just need to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the CD/DVD (whatever) drive. Hope this works.
