PC CD-ROM drives

I have 4 CD-ROM drives at work, 3 at home, and several at friends' homes that I care about, and knowing that all these items were purchased over
the years, and nobody remembers when they bought an old PC, etc. Question: How can I tell how fast each CD-ROM drive is?
The options: single speed, 2X speed, 4X speed, 8X speed, 16 speed, ...
all the way up to 54X speed (or beyond?)?

DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE in my PC can't work.


Step by Step:
1) Check your drivers (start>control panel> (Small Item View)> Device Manager
2) Install any missing, or uninstall any unregocnised drivers
3) Check your BIOS for options about turning on and off USB.
4) Test DVD/CD ROM drive in another unit, if it works, it may be the connectors on your motherboard, or even just needed to be reseated. Thankfully re-seating DVD roms on laptops is usually child's play. A few seconds with a screw-driver and you're all set.

Acer Aspire Netbook without external DVD/CD rom How to Load CD


This will work on any model or make of net-book or Laptop enabling you to load CD's or DVD s with software onto your net-book laptop especially good when the CD/DVD drive has stopped working or is non existent, there are a few prerequisites before you can carry out this operation.
1:You must be in a networked environment in your home/workplace
2;One of the networked computers must have a CD/DVD ROM available
3:The computers must have been linked in a home or a small office network
4: Printers and sharing must also be activated in that network


Method is as follows:-
On the Work-group/Home network computer with CD/DVD ROM click on Start then my computer and look for CD/DVD ROM icon.
Right click on the icon then click sharing and security enable sharing and security then restart this workstation , You will then see the shared hand icon underneath this icon representing it is a shared item after restart to confirm it is shared.

On the laptop/net-book look in my network places you will see the CD/DVD ROM available to you now all you need to do is place in the work-group computers CD/DVD ROM the required software disk and there you have your problem solved without the expense of purchasing an external CD ROM
Operate now your Net-book/Laptop with available CD/DVD icon and double click it or right click and explore choice is yours.
Look at following Pictures

I hope this explains how to do it if you have further problems let me know
Should you not have at least the above 4 listed items at the top of the page then this method wont work .I will publish another method soon for those people that have no network and only have a single net-book/Laptop with no CD capability

My TS-H653N CD Rom device does not work. What do


Buy a new one and replace it. Follow this tutorial on how to do it:
1. shut off your computer. 
2. Unplug the power cord from your computer and the rest of the wires from the back of the computer.
3. find a sturdy flat surface on which to work on
4. unscrew all screws from the back of your computer except the power supply screws. You will make a mess if you unscrew the power supply screws.
5. open your computer up by taking the side panel off, or sliding the cover off. 
6. unplug all plugs from the back of the cd-rom drive, there should be an IDE (wide) plug, a cd plug (small) and a power plug (medium).
7. unscrew the 4 holding screws on both sides of the cd-rom drive.  
8. now, you just have to remove the cd-rom drive, carefully by sliding it either forward. Check the jumpers on your new cd-rom before moving to the next step. A typical cd-rom drive should be set on slave if it is using the same IDE cable on the same cable.
9. Do everything in reverse to install a new one.

Cd burning


Usually when you get a 4300 error when you are writing to a disk it means one of two things.

1. The communication from the motherboard to the cd-rom is bad. Meaning a bad or loose cable connected to the cd-rom drive.

or

2. You have another cd-rom drive installed or another IDE device installed in your PC and they are both set up on Master or Slave and the operating system is having an issue sending the data to the right device.

If neither of these are YOUR issue, then I would take the CD-ROM drive out and check it on a friends/family member's pc to make sure it's not the drive itself.

Region code lock out


You can only change this code 5 times before it locks out the CD ROM drive. If it's locked out, you will need a new CD ROM drive. Your best bet is to get two external CD ROM drives and set one to region 1 and the other to region 4. This way you don't have to keep buying CD ROM drives. :)
