Question about Panasonic (SW9585C) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

3 Answers

DVD Drive opens automatically when I start up the pc and won't recognize disc

My daughter played with my Panasonic SW-9585-C dvd drive. She pressed the eject button so many times. Then when I start my computer, the drive opens by itself then I'll push it to close then it will open again and won't close. I can't play any discs on it and even my CD drive was affected. It's not opening and it doesn't have power light. I called DELL support and she just asked me to check the data and power cable and it's all ok, then run regedit but it didn't solve the problem.

Please help. I just bought this dvd drive and I've been using it to burn pictures on dvd and my kids watching animated books. Now I can't use it.

Thank you.

Mary

Mary, there is no quick easy solution which will not invlolve your getting your hands "dirty" a bit. Try uninstalling the drive in your computers device manager first of all to see if after you do this and reboot your computer it is still opening, if it is it is an issue with the drive iteself NOT with windows. If the drive has malfunctioned in this manner replacing it is your best alternative but you can TRY this...

In the front of your drive should ( should ) be a little hole near the eject button under the cd tray, it is just right for putting a paper clip which has been straightened oout into it. Try pushing a paper clip into it untill you feel it hit something. What you feel there is an emergency eject button, with pressure on this button try to "cycle" the drive by hitting the eject button and holding in pressure on the paper clip. Hopefully you will reset drives tray to reverse its order. Good Luck

Run msconfig.
I had the same problem. I ran msconfig by following the directions and the windows system figured itself out.
Find your children less expensive paper books or a portable dvd unit. They should not be near the computer its too expensive to fix, replace, etc.

That drive is only a CD reader and writer. It does not have DVD read or write capabilities. No amount of messing with it is going to make it play DVD discs. You will need to upgrade it to a drive that has DVD capabilities.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

Cant play DVD ROMs


you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.
