If you have put it on the same cable as the hard drive, make the cd a slave drive by putting the small plastic jumper in the right spot,usually on the face of the drive it will show what pins to short to make it a slave or master.
good luck

Dell studio one optical drive makes a chattering noise and ejects the cd after 2 seconds


Although you will rarely be able to repair your own CD player, you may be able to diagnose problems.


That can help you decide whether to have it repaired.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.



Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.

While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards



Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.


Clean the lens.

Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.


Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work.


Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.


Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.


Check for a stuck CD if the drawer won't open or close or will only partially open or close.

If there isn't one, have gears and belts replaced.


Lubricate the gears if the CD player will only play certain tracks or up to a particular point on a disc.


Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips.


Look for loose or broken internal connections.


Have the power supply replaced if your CD player overheats.


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.


Hope this helps.

My cd/dvdw Ts-H652L optical drive recognizes and plays cd's but not dvd's.


Hello
The laser pickup unit of the DVD player may either be dusty or dirty. Try to clean it, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player and play it until it pays completley. Then check it out.
If this do not help you, the laser pickup unit is faulty. It will be best to muy a new Player, rather than try to repair it, especially to computer DVD players. OK.

If you cannot play a CD on your computer. Please try the following: 1. Make sure the IDE cables are properly seated in the CD Drive. Also try to reseat the power cable connecting your power supply to the CD Drive. 2. Make sure the CDROM is recognized by your system. To check if its recognize go to system properties then hardware. Choose Device manager and look for CD/DVD drives - check if it has a yellow question mark on it. If it has install a driver for that device or use windows update to update the driver. 3. If you can find another CD Drive. Try installing it on your system. 4. Install or update your windows media player. You can also use VLC player.

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as "CD" Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Try updating your drivers from www.hp.com

If the issue is that it won't play DVD movies only then you probably need to install or re-install the DVD player software that should have come with your computer. If you don't have it anymore, simply download from HP.

Cd/dvd burning drive ''e'' does not identify an empty disk for burn


When your computer is in POST have you tried entering your CMOS to check that your system is actually recognizing that the drive is physical? If not try that and then check to make sure that the jumpers on the drives are set properly and then reinstall your software and this should correct your problem. Good Luck
