Go into your device manager and see if your dvd player is listed. Double click on it to see if it says if it is working properly. If not listed, go to the very top and right and it should say scan for hardware changes. Click on that. If your pc finds it then everything should be ok. If not, reboot and hit F8 to boot into safe mode. Do a system restore and you should be fine.

The volume won't work anymore, it says the audio device supported by this application is not detected, the application will exit. was working grand yesterday


Hi,
it,s saying the audio Device used by this Application ( Program )
Is not detected.
The problem most likely is with the program i.e media-Player, Cyberlink Power DVD Et,c.
uninstall and re-install your Audio/Music Application.
Also check the devices/Drivers are not corrupt or not installed.

Dvd cd writer does not detect disc in drive when i want to burn


Sometimes you need to have a burning software like nero or roxio, if you want to get music from an audio cd you can use rip by going to the windows media player but if not tell me what kind of software you are using for copying.

DVD R/W is not getting detected on my laptop


try to run a repair on your OS. What happened there was that your virtual cd software replaced some default drivers from the OS.
