This will lead to device manager here in disk drives or sata-ata remove ur cdrom driver by right clicking it and choose uninstall. This will uninstall the drivers for cdrom and now at the top where ur computer name displayed right click on it and select scan for hardware changes. It will automatically install drivers for it.
1 - The driver for the cdrom drive has become corrupted somehow and needs replacing. Go out to the ACER website and download the cdrom driver specific to your make and model of computer (it is IMPORTANT that you provide specific information in the window boxes to get the correct driver for your hardware.) Once you have the new driver, uninstall the device from within Device Manager. Reboot the computer and when Windows proclaims it has found a new device, select to install the device driver from a specific location. Browse to the folder where you expanded the drivers and let Windows install and update the drivers from that location. OR the other possibility is....
2 - Your cdrom drive has died. Remedy, have it replaced.
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.
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.
Is the LED of your CD ROM blinking? If yes then go to device manager by right clicking the My Computer icon and then click the Properties command. In the Properties window select the Hardware tab and then click the device manager. Is the CD ROM entery there! yes> right click and enable the device. If no then reformat your hard disc and reinstall.
In case your CD ROM's LED is not blinking (Rarest case) then simply check all the cables connected to it, atleast the power cable. if it is still not working, your CD ROM got damaged and there is a time to change it.
somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out..
All the Best
