Go to my computer, device manager, and look for your cd drive, it may show an error, select it and try to update the driver.

On your front panel of your CD rom you will see a small hole insert a small needle that can press the lock of the cd rom eject and it will open. You can use a paper clip.

HELP! DVD-ROM not working! recently i bought Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and nothing is happening when i insert the disk into the drive. All i hear is some noises, like the disk is trying to be read. I...


not necessarily... if the game works on other computers... it isn't the game... make sure there's no dust... dirt... fingerprints... ect. on the disk... open the drive... get a can of air... use the straw... and blow it out... if it still doesn't work... then the drive might not support that game... and you'll need to upgrade it.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Cd drive not wroking


Drive could be bad, BIOS settings may have been changed, could have virus or malware causing issues, there are a number of things it could be. Without looking at it, it would be hard to know for sure.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO INSTALL A CD-ROM DRIVE INTO MY E-MACHINE..


Step1 Turn off your computer and unplug. Remove the left and right side panels.

Step2 Remove the covering of the drive bay that you plan to use for your new CD/DVD Drive.

Step3 Set the jumper. This is the most difficult part involved with the installation process. If you only have one drive for your system set your jumper on the back the drive to Master. If you have two or more set it to slave. Consult your drives manual to see a picture of what a master/slave jumper configuration looks like. It is best to have the fastest drive set as the master.

Step4 After you have set the jumpers insert the drive into the empty drive bay you selected.

Step5 Secure your CD/DVD drive to your computers chassis with screws and a screwdriver. Mounting screws are typically included with your drive.

Step6 Locate and connect the required power and IDE cables to the back of the drive. These cables are keyed, meaning they are shaped specifically for that drive. It's impossible to install the wrong cables.

Step7 Put the side panels back on and plug your computer back in. Turn it on and your computer should recognize the new drives. If they are not recognized you may need to install the drivers, which are usually included on a CD that's included with your new drive.

I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, let me know.

Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

then clean up your CD/DVD rom for there is dust in it, specially on the lazer lens that let the rom read the CD/DVD.

If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.

one last try:

try your new purcahse disc in another computer that is compatible with your disc.
