Re: audio cd and DVD

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

Combo Cd/Dvd Drive is not reading Cds nor DVDs

1. Remove your burner from your computer then open it by removing the screws under the burner.
2. When the cover has already been removed, get a cotton bud then soak it in alcohol to clean the lens. Because the lens might just be dirty. Then after that put the cover back by screwing it again then install it back to your computer.

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
