    I have managed to get the drive icon back into ' my computer' by doing a total system scan, on inserting a dvd error message now reads "please insert a disk into drive D:'

    Can someone please help? Thanks again Sarah

    Does the drive make any noise upon inserting a disk? Also you might want to open your computer and make sure all the connections are in place.

It is mainly due to two reasons

  1. your operating system don't detect your drive
  2. its data or power cable is not properly connected
In the first case, if you are using xp, open my computer, select control panel, click add new hardware icon
  1. read and do as follows
  2. the computer automatically detect your drive
  3. if it don't detect, using manual method and add the drive
In the second case, only do if you are little technical minded
  1. open cpu cover
  2. check the data and power cables attached to the drive
  3. refix the cable some time it may in loose contact
  4. replace cable if it may contact problem

My dvd player worked fine until I mistakenly inserted a bluray dvd. Now dvds will only have video - no sound. And, there's no sound at all for cds. How do I get audio for dvds and cds again?


Assuming that this is an entertainment center (TV, stereo) DVD player:
It seems likely to me that at some point, the sound cables were accidentally loosened. Double check that the sound cables are plugged in on both sides. They will probably be 2 plugs, one white and one red.
Check to make sure the volume is turned up.
Failing all of these, it may be possible that the added weight of the Blu-Ray (Blu-rays are heavier than DVDs) may have caused some damage internally and the unit either needs repair or replacement.

Assuming that this is a computer DVD drive:
Check the Windows volume control by left-clicking on the speaker symbol next to the clock in your task bar. Push the slider all the way up. You should hear a sound. If not, there is a problem with your speakers or sound card; either way, the appropriate component needs repair or replace.

If you do hear a sound, but still no CD or DVD audio, I would suspect that your computer expects an analog sound link for DVD and CD audio. Inside the computer, look for a small black connector that is loose on one end, but plugged in on the other. If you find one, one side needs to be in the back of the DVD drive, and the other needs to be attached to the appropriate socket on the motherboard or sound card.

Failing all of these, it may be possible that the added weight of the Blu-Ray (Blu-rays are heavier than DVDs) may have caused some damage internally and the unit either needs repair or replacement.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

Hi,
Check device manager for marks, red cross's etc...on the devices list, look in here,

Start, control panel , system/maintainance,
device manager, disk drive in here, right click, scan for hardware changes, update diver,

or double click it, driver tab, try roll back, or update & search, internet needed,
if no light's or no activity after this and all connections are good, ESD kit, needed to test that, then it's drive failure.

Check the media on different Computer, if it functions
You have just confirmed it.

Combo drive CD not reading, but DVD ok


it may have dual laser and one that reads cd's is faulty, but try uninstalling the dvd drive first then re installing it to see if it cures it, if not the drive will need replacing. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers

Please Insert disk?


Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.
