    Thanks for your help. Tried the boot disc and it didn't work so I guess I need to get the CD/DVD ROM fixed or replaced.

Cd dvd will not play in my tower


Hello,

I suggest that you go to the device manager and uninstall the driver for your DVD/CD. Then restart your computer to refresh windows. Windows usually installs the generic driver. It should work if it's not a hardware related problem. If it's a hardware problem, then you would need to buy a new cd/dvd drive.
You can also use RadarSync to update the cd/dvd driver.

I hope this helps!

My dvd rom is not working becouse an error in driver HPDVDRAM GS30


Optical drives are more forgiving.
Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

My CD/DVD drive on Gateway M460 laptop only works after I recover my computer to an earlier date. It tries to run, but cannot actually bring up the CD. After I recover, it works fine until the next ti


good thing is it seems like a software fault not hardware, when it isn't working check to see if the drivers are still there and if they are updated. something may be deleting the drivers for the device like a virus. so there may be a program that you use after you recover that sends it to **** again. Download Avast! antivirus and use that, best protection around.

To check to see if the DVD/CD has the drivers click start -> right click computer -> click manage -> (wait for screen to load) click on device manager and navigate to the cd/dvd rom drive. you can manage the drivers from there and update, locate the driver and backup, rollback drivers etc..

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


I also have the same problem. I've tried all the above plus some added info. The floppy still works when I swap it with the DVD. Occasionally it works for a short time right after a hard boot but soon after it appears to uninstall. I have searched the net for answers to this problem without success. I tried the registry correction without avail. There has been some online comments that the problem appeared after an auto update from uSoft. I believe the problem is software or firmware related.
