My DVD/CD rom player suddenly not recognized


You may have to take out and put it back in. Make sure you this with the laptop off and then start after you insert the optical drive back in. There should be a switch or one screw that will allow you to remove the cd drive. If all else fails, try reinstalling the driver as well. If after all this you still have issues, you may need to replace the drive.

Can't remove dvd drive (hp pavilion dv4000)


I think he meant reinstall the device driver not the actual device. Doing it to the actual device wont accomplish much but take some time. As for the driver go to this website: Click Here

Then download and run the fix it program there
Once you have run it restart the machine
You may have to do it twice before it works

Dvd drive will read/play dvds but will not recognize a cd


go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.

Cant play a dvd on laptop hp pavilion dv4000


I assume it will not play Store bought or rental dvd's.

Try buying a cleaning disc and see if that helps. Other than that the drive would need taken apart and cleaned to see if that fixes it.

It could also be an electronic failure, in which case it would be cheaper to replace the drive.

Hope that helps...

Can't READ or PLAY CD/DVD in DVD drive


Many laptops allow you to detach the CD/DVD drive - if this is the case for your laptop, perhaps it is slightly loose, or been removed by Safely Remove Hardware. You could try physically taking the drive out, and putting it back in, and that might do the trick.
