That is clearly an hardware problem. Only easy operation you can do to try fixing it is cleaning the lens, sometimes dirty lens can give you similar problems. second solution is disassembling the combo drive to identify mechanical problems and assembling it back. Third step to do is checking the electronics (controlled board, heads, motor, etc), but probably at this point will be more convenient to find a second hand combo from ebay. They shouldn't came too expensive.

I am trying get to firmware for my samsung sc- 140b. My cdrom can't read a cdrom and. i can't hear nothing.

If you insert a disk, and you don't hear it "spin" the disk, then the motor that spins the disks has FAILED. Replace the CD-ROM drive -- it's less expensive than paying a technician to try to repair it.

Cd drive not playing cds or dvds

Sadly if you have tried a number of CD's in this (I'm assuming its a DVD/CDRW drive), then the drive may be broken. If it spins the disc up when you put it in and there are no rattles (indicating a worn bearing), you could try a DVD cleaning disc which will clean the laser lens, which might help, but depending on how old the drive is, there is a chance it is simply worn out

My cd rom wil not work it just quit working for no reason it will not play any cds or let me burn anything

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

If the same problem is still occurring, get the reliable Dell support at http:/www./

This might be as a result of CDROM Drive speed.
Generally the spin speed of CDROM Drives are always different, and there are some desktop CDROM drives that have Spin Speed as High as 60X...yes, because I have used one before. What in this case, I would suggest you do this, : Provided the Notebook CDROM Drive can read other disks, then just try and use your desktop to burn the CD disk onto another CD Disk, then try the newly burnt disk on your laptop.
And if you have an external drive, you can just copy the CD contents using a NERO burner software or any other CD Burning software, and transfer it to your laptop.
Hope this help you out.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem

This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?
