CD rom drive not working

I have a Gateway MT6452 Notebook
Its been running fine, but i discovered that my CD drive isn't working. The drive isn't listed in MY COMPUTERS. However, under device manager the driver Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530 ATA Device that is listed under the driver has an exclamation mark next to it. It has that Error code 10 (This device cannot start.) message. Windows isn't giving me the right solution. I tried updating it but vista looks for the driver. I tried checking all over the web to find a solution, even gateway website does not list how to fix this. please help. thanks

I have Inspiron 530 running Vista and just experienced loss of CD Rom Drives.
Check; Click Computer / System properties/ Device Manager/ DVD/CD rom Drives Then Right click and view properties. It will probably say Error Code 10. (Icon at DVD / CD Rom drive shows a small yellow exclamation mark.

I then phoned Dell and spent 1 hour trying to fix. (Unable to do so )

I previously had Epson Printer and HP scanner which ran on XP no problem.
I have tried loading them on to new Vista and the printer works but cannot find drivers for scanner to run it on vista.
I have just uninstalled Printer and scanner and YES my CD/DVD ROM drives have reappeared and are working fine.

I think the problem was by loading the HP disc onto my new computer.

Unable To Eject DVD From DVD-ROM Drive With The Eject
The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:
  1. Shut down the program that you are installing or running that uses the DVD-ROM drive.
  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. If the DVD-ROM drive door still does not open, do the following:
    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.
To prevent the DVD-ROM drive from exhibiting this behavior again, follow these steps:
  1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Device Manager tab.
  4. On the Device Manager tab, double-click the CD-ROM category.
  5. Double-click Toshiba DVD-ROM.
  6. In the Toshiba DVD-ROM Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
  7. On the Settings tab, clear the Auto insertion notification check box, and then click OK.
  8. Click Close.

CD Rom not detected


CD Rom not detected? As in the Disk or your CD Rom Drive? If it is the disk you should make sure that your drive is compatible to read it. There are different kinds of DVD's out there.
If your Drive isn't recognized this will take a little bit of troubleshooting to determine the issue. First, you should make sure it hasnt become disconnected. Does it open and close? If you go into device manager, is it listed under CD/DVD Drives? Try running a windows update to see if it has drivers for it. You can try to reboot your PC. It is also possible that the drive is actually failing and needs to be replaced.

Dvd/CD RW+- not recognizing Dvd disk. CD is fine. Gateway GM5407E only DH16W1P161C on player. Vista Premium 32 OS


open the control panel and click on the system folder, then the hardware tab, then the device manager (you are looking for the cd/dvd rom drives).
When you find it right click on it and check all the tabs to make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it turns out and we can take it further if we need too.

Replace the Cd-rom drive, sounds like you may have a bad spindle motor and or Laser assembly. Cd-roms are very cheap these days, and you might consider replacing it with a DVD drive instead, which is downward compatiable.
