Try uninstalling all IDE controllers - My presario SR2150NX has problems when Microsoft OS updates and replaces ATA controllers with generic controllers.  If you uninstall and restart from device manager you should get the proper ATA controllers back.  Two symptoms you may notice if the controllers are bad - loss of read/write ability on CD / DVD disk drives and sluggishness of hard drive.
If this doesn't fix it - open device manager again and in the IDE controller section open dialogue box for each entry - go to advanced settings and uncheck "Enable DMA" and then try to read a disk.  I have an old presario running Win98SE and it is fantastic, this new presario must have been glued together in a back room shop in some remote region of the world or Microsoft and Compaq/HP just don't communicate anymore or maybe it's both.

Hmm...Something may be wrong really!

Are u able to copy from any folder within the hard disk?

Some viruses / malwares are preventing the copy function of the windows from working properly!!!
(So, try some good antivirus)

Also...one more info for u
   1. u must have sufficient disk space for copying files to hard disk:)
   2. if file system is FAT32, u may mot be able to copy files of size more than 4GB
   3. Try updating the firmware of the CD/DVD drive
   4. Try coming back here with more clues to ur problem :)

have a nice day

If the other one works, try switching them just to make sure that the RAM is functional. If you determined that it is, please note that Windows 7 (32 bit) will only support 3GB of RAM, even if you have more. If you have less or run the 64-bit version, you will need to replace the motherboard.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as "CD" Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Try updating your drivers from www.hp.com

If the issue is that it won't play DVD movies only then you probably need to install or re-install the DVD player software that should have come with your computer. If you don't have it anymore, simply download from HP.
