DVD drives on the whole don't need the driver to work. Does the drive appear in Windows? If it does, try this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Does it 'see' discs? If not, it probably needs replacing.
Please rate me if any of this helped J

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

Lost dvd driver


DVD drives usually don't need drivers to be installed separately. It will work right away as the native driver is already installed. However, if you really need one for the purpose of troubleshooting a problem with your DVD drive, you need to provide the model number of your DVD drive or the model of your computer.

After instalation several programs I lost dvd-rom in Windows 7.


Here's an easy way to get or update your DVD drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which would scan your computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here or directly from this link (copy and paste the link into your browser, if you can't click it).

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, the DVD still doesn't work, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your DVD drive and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another drive, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Acer dvd driver missing acer ferrari 400 dvd uj-845-c


CD/DVD drive drivers are Operating System generic drivers and need not to be installed explicitly. The CD/DVD drive drivers are installed along with the Operating System and can be reinstalled automatically at next restart, if missing.

Check in the Device Manager under the "CD/DVD drive" category if there is any device listed there and having exclamation mark. If there is any exclamation mark visible beside the CD/DVD drive name then right click on it and restart the Computer.

Restarting the Computer will reinstall the CD/DVD drive driver thus causing it to work normally.

Hello my Dell Studio 1435, it can read CD but not reading DVD... it give noise when i put DVD..


Try using a good quality DVD cleaner first. The lens for cd/dvd are different so one may work if the other is dirty. If cleaning does not work then the dvd lens may be out of alignment or broke. With today's prices it is cheaper to replace the drive $30-40 than try to repair it. Hope this helps.

Dvd not working in xp


hi,
what that means is your dvd drive if fine and there is no hardware issue, this is a driver issue
the problem can be resolved by going to your desktop manufacturers website and reinstalling the drivers, if you have the driver media with you you can

right click my computer> properties> device manager > then remove the dvd drive from here
by selecting and removing it and then restart your system
when your system will restart the dvd drive will be redetected and now either xp will install the default drivers on its own or it will ask for driver cd/dvd if it asks for driver cd.dvd put it in and then install the drivers and it will work.

further queries are welcome

Compal notebook ... problem with dvd.


Try deleting the incorrect driver, then do a search for hardware. If that doesn't work, go to your computer manufacturer's website and download and install the correct driver to your cd/dvd. Then restart your computer. Your cd/dvd drive should be recognized then.
