Have my grandsons tower here,the d drive is unable to read,and open.Have been trying everything i could think of,but.Still unable to get it to open when i put disk in drive.Not sure if he messed with the drivers or not.I've tried updated them,nothing.Tried reinstalling them,nothing.Not really sure what type his tower is,because it has several different parts.But they are all up to date.Everything works great,just cant open,or play disk when i put them in the drive.Even tried restore,nothing.Took it out,tried another one,still nothing. Any ideas on what or where to fix it?

First, make sure everything is unplugged. Open your PC case, one of the sides should be accessible via 2 screws. Determine where CD Drive is and which screws hold it in (there is a possibility that you may need to remove the entire case of the Tower). Unplug the cables that connect the Drive, then take the screws that hold the CD Drive out. At this point the Drive should slide out of either the inside or the front of tower. There may be a clip that holds the Drive in place that needs to be pressed while sliding.
Close the Tower back up, that's all you need to do!
I'm going to assume it safe to guess that you didn't perform the necessary steps to "safely remove the device" which enables the operating system to KNOW that you're not using it anymore, and kill voltage to it so that when you do yank that cord out, there's no data being sent to the drive, and there wont' be any problems.
IF you did just "yank the cord" then here's your problem.
More than likely, you didn't know that the drive was being written to or read from (just cause you can't see it doesn't mean it don't exist...AIR, for example) and you yanked it while data was being transmitted corrupting EVERYTHING on that drive, and even the drive itself.
IF you removed it while it was powered down, and it's not recognizing it anymore, then that opens up a WORLD of new possibilities for problems, could be something with your operating system, could be something with the firmware, the driver, or many other things.
Try keeping off your system for 10-15 minutes and try again. If problem exists go to the shop from where you bought your PS3 and ask them for replacement of your drive or your drive lens. I think drive sounds better.
Hi, You can try to format the mp3 player. Go through: Setting>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk management> Try to format it with fat files system. hope this help you Regards uttam
Ouch! The answer to your question is yes. The hard drive inside the tower has all your information on it (regardless of the condition of the rest of the PC) and can be transferred to another computer by making it a 'slave' drive. Then the computer's main HD (also called 'master' hard drive) can usually read from it. Rest assured, your data is still there.
