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.

Install VLC media player. Once installed, insert your DVD. If it doesn't autorun & ask what program to open it with, then open VLC (there will now be an icon for it on your desktop)--> File (or media)-->open disc-->choose your DVD.

My Samsung cd r rw sw 248f won't recognize or open any discs


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


hope it helps

Does not recognize dvd drive


When you click Start/My Computer is the DvD drive shown as one of your devices? If not then try the steps below:
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that secures the dvd drive and pull the drive out. After 20 seconds plug the DvD drive back in, and then try booting to see if it is recognized. If the drive is not recognized then you will have to remove upper and lower filters.

If you are talking about the drive won't play a dvd then that's another issue. Most times computers have a hard time playing something that was created by someone else. Try a store purchased DvD and see if it recognizes and plays it.

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.
