Please checked in bios, is your dvd detected ?
if your dvd isnot detected, most of the time is your dvd, sometime it mainboard problem.

Also checked in the device manager, is your dvd there and need driver ?
if yes, you have 2 option, you can reload your OS or you can edit the registry.
follow this step if you want to edit the windows registry:

I put in a cd and it now wont recognize the drive at all. i can't get the disc out, no idea how to fix it


Hi Laurenleighd

Have a look at your CD/DVD drive and you will see a small pin hole that about the size of a needle. You can take a straightened paperclip and push it in there to open the CD dirve manualy. After you've removed it, try another CD that you know is working and see if you have the same problem. If this CD also get stuck in there then we know the CD/DVD ROM may be faulty.

Is this a Dell Laptop or Desktop?
Can you open and close the Drive with or without anything inside it?
Can you hear any noise coming from CD/DVD ROM when you insert a CD?
What Happens when you insert any other CDs or DVDs that you know is working fine?

When you open your MY Computer/Computer in the Start Menu, Can you see the drive there, or is it not showing the CD dirve there at all?
If the you are 100% sure this is not a power issue, then it might be the CD/DVD driver that needs to be re-installed.

Hope this helps

The DVD RW/CD-RW'S DRIVER is not working


CHeck the Device Manager. Does the CD/DVD Drive show up in Device manager, and when you right click it and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39?

Normally the CD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA T50N ATA Device in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error, it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Cannot open cd-rom drive!


The thing about cd/dvd drives in general is that they die and thats the case here even if you deleted anything of the operating system its self would notice that the cd drive was missing the driver and ask you about it since you havent stated that its safe to say that the drive is dead

DVD DRIVE WORKS, BUT CD DRIVE DEAD


Try using the manual eject that is as small as a pinhole just below or beside the CD drive. Once you find out that you can manually eject you may be able to insert a cleaning cd to clean the device.

If that doesn't work check device manager to see if it has the proper driver or if it's recognized that it's installed in the system.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
