I have a dell vostro 1510 laptop and when I put a DVD or a CD in it,it does not read them at all. help me please!


First thing to do is go onto the start menu, and right click on computer, click on properties and look for the hardware tab. Click on device manager and look for DVD/CD rom drives. Click the plus sign next to that selection and see if you DVD drive is shown or if it has a question mark next to it.

If it is shown and you click on it, it will tell you if the device is working properly. If it is, then you may just need to obtain a DVD/CD cleaning disk. The lenses do get dirty, similar to a audio CD player, and need to be cleaned to read properly.

The only other thing you can do is make sure the device is seated properly into the laptop, but they are secured with a screw on the bottom of the laptop, so that does not often happen.

If the device is not working properly, right click on it and choose uninstall. Restart your computer and the device will be seen as new hardware and a driver installed by windows. If you need an updated driver, go to www.dell.com, choose support and put your service tag in to get all available drivers for your laptop.

Try these suggestions and see if that solves your problem.

If this solution was helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback for me.

Thank You,

Brian

My CD drive wont read certain disk (example; Ufile 2009, norton antivirus) But it reads games (warcraft etc) Once i put the cd in you can hear it running but nothing is happening. I have windows vista...


one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

Put disc in, acts like nothing is there.


Did you go to REGEDIT to see if you have a corrupted registy?

Follow these instructions VERY CAREFULLY BELOW:


1) in COMMAND type REGEDIT

2) CLICK on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

3) CLICK on SYSTEM

4) CLICK on CURRENTCONTROLSET

5) CLICK on CONTROL

6) CLICK on CLASS

7) VERY VERY CAREFULLY: CLICK ONCE ON THE FIRST REGISTRY FILE FOLDER RIGHT UNDER THE WORDS CLASS

8) Using the up and down keys on your keyboard: move the highlight down the list SLOWLY until you see the Title "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES" on the RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE REGISTRY EDITOR UNDER THE WORDS DATA.

9)VERY VERY VERY VERY CAREFULLY ERASE ONLY THESE FOLLOWING WORDS:

ANYTHING THAT SAYS LOWER FILTERS AND ANYTHING THAT SAYS UPPER FILTERS

After that close all windows and reboot the laptop

Check the dvd drive again with a dvd movie and an audio cd and a software program.

If everything works, the issue was just a corrupted dvd registry, if it does not work please write me the results.

I hope this helps :)

Need help instaling photo exploision deluxe 4.0 when i put the dvd in my driver.. it just says .. no **** in driver.. nothing happens!!! help !!


Do other CD work? If yes, you have a bad Photo Explosion CD.
If no, then you have a bad CD/DVD drive. You can get a new one for $30 if this is a desktop pc. If you have a laptop an external dvd drive would be the best option if you don't use the DVD drive very often.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.


Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

CD/DVD rom drive not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Cd/rom not working


rub1 hello,

It seems like a hardware problem with your cd/DVD drive.
I suggest trying to use Windows Update, perhaps there is a driver conflict.
Try to update the drivers on everything, and see if this works.
If not, try rolling back the driver for the drive.
If none of that works, enter the BIOS by pressing F1 when your computer starts (before Windows gets on).
There, check if DVD/CD drive is Enabled or Disabled.
If it is disabled, it might indicate a hardware failure. Then, if warranty is still applicable, I would suggest sending your laptop to a service provider near you.
