Well first try using it with a different system and see if it works.Also check in the device manager if it is recognised over there.You could also try to reinstall the software for it.

Hmmm... my cd rom driver is not working well. i cannot open and play a cd. i dont know how to fix my aplication. how can i fix my problem?

Should be a tiny hole in the front just below the cd drawer (make sure its not the indicator light hole)

Insert a paper clip or thin piece of wire (about the same diameter as the hole) into this hole and you should feel a solid piece maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch in. Push firmly on the wire and the cd cdrawer should open out a bit. Gently pull it further and remove the cd.
Reboot your pc with the drawer left out - it should close by itself - if it closes OK then try opening it with the front button. If that works try another cd in it. ANy drams with get just get a new dvd/cd player or burner as the cd player is not worth repairing or replacing due to the cheap cost of dvd player/burners.

If it closes ok then try opening it with the button -

Hello rambush,

Is the cd burner external like a USB, or is it built in to the computer?

Cd burner

Try another brand, I used a Sony CDR, if another disc not function, your driver has damage, and you need to buy another one.
