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.

if same happen, then maybe its time for a new CD/DVD ROM.

one last try:

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

hope this help, melnavz

My computer does not read my any CD that I put in


Since you have an old computer, does it support USB? If it does, then the only quick and best solution is to buy an external CD/DVD drive that will use USB connection and you can read your CDs and DVDs with it. If you can not manage that, then you can buy an internal CD/ DVD drive. Make sure you open up your computer and check the connections for the CD drive on your motherboard, either IDE (the older connection) or SATA (the latest used connection)...

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

your computer simply may not be able to play world of warcraft anymore. you may need to splurge and buy a more game-intensive computer, or upgrade the video card. good brands to look for are anything ati and nvidia.

I bought a new PC game "Mystery 5 Collection" and


The problem is most likely that you do not have a DVD reader installed in your PC. If you look on the front of you cd-rom it will say DVD if it can read DVD's. Most stores will not give you a refund for software that has already been opened. It is fairly easy and inexpensive to install a DVD reader in your PC, probably in the range of $30.00 to $60.00 depending on the brand you purchase. I would go ahead and purchase and install the DVD reader since more and more games and other software is now being put on DVD's.

Hi!! I have a Dell Vostro 1310 with Windows 7 Ultimate installed and I was burning a DVD with Nero Express when it suddenly froze. I restarted the computer and when I put a DVD back into it, it doesn't...


It is probably a nero quirk. You will not be able to read the disk you were writing as there will be no table of contents written to it which is [ossibly why it failed.
Re install Nero or load the latest updates before trying again.

I have a game called world of warcraft when i put the disc in nothing happens you need 20g and i have 37g wats the problem.


Go to "my computer"
In there you will see an icon at the cd-rom drive for WOW.
(WOW = World of Warcraft)
Double click on that Icon
This will start the installer.
If you do not see an icon take out the CD and clean the drive and look at the CD or significant scratches. Little ones are okay.
