> unable to read any CD or DVD. Its detected in device manager but cant ready media.
Can you hear it "spinning" the media? If not, you have a "defective" unit (motors or bearings).
If it spins, but nothing is read, then you have a "defective" unit (dead laser).
Take it back to where you bought it, and get them to test it, to prove that it is "bad", and then for them to replace it.

Normal for most SATA devices.
> it shows as HT-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8526B ATA device.
Perfectly normal.

I just installed a new hard drive into my gateway desk top and put recovery cd in and its says missing operating system


Hello,

You will need to go into the BIOS screen and set the first boot device to CDrom. You can get to BIOS when the machine first boots, as soon as you see writing on a black screen press the bottom to get to setup. When you get to the setup screen look for an option to set boot devices or "boot priority". The first boot device needs to be CDrom and the second device can be Hard Drive. Now save the settings. This time on boot the computer will boot to the CDrom restore disk and you can follow its guides to restore your system.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I had the computer reset to factory settings and cannot play CD's now. I get a message that says "You don't have a disc drive capable of playing DVD's or CD's. See less


Do you see the CDrom drive from the Device Manager? Right click on My Computer and click Manage. Click Device Manager and on the right panel, expand the DVD/CDROM drives. Check if your cdrom is on the list. If you can see it, try to right click that and Update the driver. You will need to have the installation disk for your cdrom.

If you dont have an installation disk, try to right click it and choose uninstall the drive. Next, you reboot the computer. The system should rediscover the drive.

If this does not work, please let me know.

1) it may just be a driver issue. look up the control panel / devices. if you see a yellow marker , then the drive is at fault . find the driver and install, then try again.

2) maybe the cdrom is dead , try change to another one.

3) if you dont have spare , plug in an external usb cdrom drive . this way , you can still do the update. many dell laptops use external usb cdrom.
