    go to contro panel --> hardware --> device manager

    Look at the list if you can find your CDR device, and if you see a big yellow question mark there.

    If yes, it means you need to reinstall your driver.

    What is your computer?

    What is your driver?

Reinstall your driver with the CD provided alongwith your PC while purchase.

If problem persist, then check your CD drive lens.. it would have gone out.. This may be the reason your CD drive could not get detect..

My computer is saying the CD Rom is experiencing a driver problem. I've tried to apply the "fixes" but they don't seem to work. The CD drive doesn't show up when I go into My Computer. It worked...

Thank you for using FixYa.

you don't mention what version of Windows you are running. I will walk you through uninstalling your CD Drive to best determine if it actually is a problem with the driver. I will cover this procedure in XP and Vista. Windows 7 is the same as vista.

click on the start button.
in xp right click on My Computer. then select Properties on the menu. Click on the Hardware tab and then the button Device Manager. once you see the list of devices click the + sign next to DVD/CD Drives and then right click on your CD Drive and select Uninstall. Then exit out and reboot the pc.

In Vista and Windows 7 click on Start and right click on Computer. Then click on Properties on the menu and the System Properties window will open. On the left side click where it says Device Manager and if prompted click on Continue or Allow. Follow the same procedure as the xp at this point. Once the drive is uninstalled, exit out and reboot the machine.

The system will re-discover the drive and reinstall the drivers for it. If that does not work, then more than likely a faulty drive and will need to be replaced. As it will be mechanical problem and not a driver problem.

Let us know if you have further questions by using the "add a comment" link.

Thank you.

Have you tried unistalling the drive in device manager and rebooting, windows will automatically pick up the drive on restart and install the driver again for you.

Computer will not communicate with printer

I had this same problem...drove me crazy for a week. Called the geek squad at Best Buy and they mentioned something about a"patch" (which I had no idea what that meant) on the website of the printer. I went to Lexmark website, and selected 1200 series and windows vista (which is what's installed on my computer) A page came up to install a driver that made the two compatible and it worked!!!
