Question about CD Drives

Tray starter and InstantWrite Control Center have stopped working!

I am sorry of my English! About 2 weeks ago, I install the second disk of Corel WordPerfect X3, I did not know that after I push the CD Rom tray in, the software just began to install right away. In that disk there is bundle of software on it and one of them is Norton Anti Virus. After I installed them, my computer was frozen. When I tried to start it, instead of starting the windows Vista normally, it went into the repaid mode. After several times of starting by itself, my CR Rom was not working. Following days, two windows keep popoping up, notified me that 1. Tray starter and 2. InstantWrite Control Center have stopped working. My CD-Rom is Hitachi HTS 541616J9SA00 ATA-Device. Disk Drive. HL-DT-ST DVD+RW GSA-T11N Ata Drive and VOBID InstantDrive CD SCSI CD-Rom. Please help me. Thank you very much.

Re: Tray starter and InstantWrite Control Center have...

I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!

We all know that Vista is not perfect yet due to some bugs and some software that this OS(VISTA) didnt accept. Reinstall a new copy of your windows and avoid installing program not compatible with VISTA. It will really damage your windows.

This happens when the drive motor inside dies.
You can take a small paperclip and insert it into the tiny hole you find in the face of the drive to manually open the tray. Use this method to remove any disk stuck inside of the drive currently. go to for a cheap replacement drive.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem

This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?

CD ROM doesn't detect discs at all?

My best quess wouldbe that the drive went out and you just don't realize or want to admit it. Switch it back to another system to test it, if it still dosn't work scrap it. Otherwise I would try booting to dos with an old 98se disk, see if it's your OS if it is, reinstall 2k.
