A while ago, my laptop's DVD drive stopped reading CDs. A after a few attempts , it displays the CD/DVD as an empty one. The CDs are not empty or too scratched because I tried them on a different computer...


Hello there!

Please note that a CD-ROM drive can read and in some cases write to a CD inserted into it. This is done by means of a fragile laser mechanism that scans the surface of the disc as it spins at high speed inside the drive. Drive failure can occure from a scratched laser eye, mechanical failure, overheating, or simply years of use. You will want to ensure the drive is actually broken before buying a new one as replacement or send it for a repair.

Please follow these easy steps:

1. Open the CD drive tray and insert a CD. If you have a tray that opens by pushing a button, push the button. For slot drives, try to slide the CD in. On slot drives, if the CD will not go in fully, the drive is not getting power.

2. Wait and listen for a "whirring" sound from the drive after the CD is in and the drive tray is pushed in. This may take a few seconds.

3. Look at the status light on the front of the drive if one is present. It should be blinking to indicate that the device is reading the CD.

4. Replace the first CD with another one in case the first CD is damaged or unreadable. Repeat steps 1 through 3 with the second CD.

5. Wait to see if anything comes up on the pc screen indicating the CD is being read or run. A notification may appear asking if you want to play the CD or run the software. This indicates a functioning drive.

6. Click on "Start" followed by "My Computer" and locate the CD-ROM drive usually labeled as "D:/" or "E:/". Double click on it. If the CD drive makes no noise or an error message appears on screen indicating the disc can not be read, the drive may be broken.

If an error message appears indicating that the CD-Rom drivers are missing this may indicate a software issue and not a broken drive.

Regards,
fossildude

I have a broken cd/dvd drive on travelmate 4200


Should be,just make sure they have the same connector on the same side. Also, look at the front bezel & see if there's any interference after it's in.

CD Drive is not reading disks


It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer to replace your "dead" (broken laser) optical device.

My cd is broken inside my lG cd rom what should i DO Now


Hi

Thank you for your query

If you look at the side of the CD rom drive i.e. where the button is that you push to open and close the CD drive there will be a very small hole. If you open up a paper clip and poke the end into that hole you will notice the drive will pop out, once the drive has come out all you need to do is open and remove the broken CD

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank you again

Replace the Cd-rom drive, sounds like you may have a bad spindle motor and or Laser assembly. Cd-roms are very cheap these days, and you might consider replacing it with a DVD drive instead, which is downward compatiable.
