Why my computer didn't detect my CD-ROM after I reformat my computer there is no icon in My Computer but if I press the eject button it eject or it was function but didn't read a CD ??


Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall cd/dvd driver then it automatic install it's drivers. then check. Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa

The LG CD-ROM CRN-8245B


Problem solved, I deleted the UpperFilter from the registry in managing devices and when I rebooted the computer, the icon was there in My Computer.

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM


"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
"...it found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.

ASSUMING IT'S RECOGNIZED BY YOUR WINDOWS VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM:

Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at http://www.cdspeed2000.com/download.html. They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDiscSpeed_41140.zip
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDriveSpeed_300.zip

ASSUMING IT'S NOT:

You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.

CD ROM won't play


Check the Hardare manager is there any question mark at the icons of the CD drive? If the auto play does'nt work then the CD-rom is not reading the CD, either the CD format is different or the CD-rom lens is faulty. Note: don't remove Hardware when PC is running, you might cause damage to your Hardware devices.

Drive will not read cd rom, reads dvd and audio


CD rom drive is dead!

Time to go out and buy a new one. Rough cost is anywhere for a DVD BURNER is $25 - $40.

DVD burner are now the mainstream drives replacing CD roms.
But if you can still get a replacement CD rom from a computer in town should be cheaper than a DVD burner.

DVD burner can read and write DVD's and CD's.

Cd -rom


Hi, you need to check whether the device is detected by your Windows and if you have verified that both on BIOS settings and under the My computer icon the Cd-rom is recognized, it only means that this is already a Hardware issue. You can contact the manufacturer of your computer so that they can replace the drive and it should be under warranty so that you won't be charge for the repair.

You can also try this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks

Cd drive problem


Hi, it appears that CDW/DVDROM is only detected in BIOS but in normal windows. This is a known issue from Microsoft eventhough you are using Windows Xp or Vista the CDW/DVDROM is not detected and does not appear in My computer icon. This can be easily fixed by a registry tweaks.

Please click on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks

Cd-rom driver


Hello, you are so funny SeekPCRepair, when my neighbours went missing she thought it was personal (she has had some wicked pc issues last year!!!) Piap,has the CD rom icon dissapeared off the my computer window? This can mean evil gnomes have stolen it ( a fellow once said) but actually, it is something that sometimes just happens. It can be there one minute and gone the next.
You do need to go through the steps above as SeekPCRepair has said, but if nothing above works, and no entries at all appear for your drive under device manager ( found by clicking my computer, then view system info, then hardware, then device manager) and you have opened up your pc, and checked if the power ribbons (cables) are secure, and then looked for it again, it is either defective or a software issue. If all else fails, you can try editing the registry, as it may be corrupt driver files but first you need to try uninstalling the drive and reinstalling it if you can find the driver deatils. If this does not work, try downloading new driver from manufactures website. Install with this and see if it works. Post back if none of this works above and i will tell you how to step by step edit the registry to repair corrupt files.
