Load a disc and put your ear next to the drive.  Is it spinning and stopping?  Is it engaging but not spinning? Then you need a new one.  Try running a disc cleaner kit through the thing first to make sure your optical pickup isn't dirty.  If that doesn't work, the yes your drive is definitely fu.k.d up.

My CD-drive wont read my Age of Mythology disks is there any way i can fix it?


try a different cd first to see if your cd drive is even working.. if it is then check your cd for scratches .. sometimes in older cd drives the slightest scratches make the cd unreadable.. i would suggest if the cd drive is unable to read most cd's you should replace it .. try staples or electronics stores like it.. there cheap..easy fix read up on safe instalation of cd drives

Hard drive and cd drive not recognized


In this case if your laptop runs occasionally sometimes not. The prom the is the faulty cable which is connected to the HDD and CD drive. Try to replace the connector cable with the other one. Check also the BIOS setting of the HDD and CD drive.

Cd drive will not read or burn cds


Could be problem with the optic, try to clean the optic
with CD cleaner first.
And if it still doesnt work, unfortunately you should replace with
another new CD Drive.

My Toshiba SD-C2612 8X Slim DVD will not read cds. I just updated the firmware in my laptop for this drive and it still wont read cd's. get can not read d: error. I reinstalled it and everything.


Try a lens cleaner, probably wont solve the problem, the drive's optics for the cd side are failing dvd's still work, if you must read cd's replace the drive or use a external cd drive.
