Check in device manager to see that it is in the list,
if it is not ,
check the data cable is in the socket of the motherboard and the back of the drive if all cables are tight in, then drive probably on its last legs,
if it is in device manager try a cd cleaner on it.

good luck

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

The dvd/cd drive does not play dvd/cds. There is no driver problem. Whwn you try to open the dvd/cd it says "insert disk in drive" and the drive ejects..


The laser sensor from the reading head inside your unit has failed and no longer sees the disk. this is unfixable, the unit is dead. Luckily a new unit is very cheap, less than $25, and it can be bought at every computer shop or section inside a bigger shop.

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3


It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.

Toshiba SD-K625 5 disk player won't play DVD but will play CD


Could be that the laser mechanism has lost its ability to focus properly on the dvd disks. U might want to try a firmware upgrade just in case the player has corrupted software. If not effective, then it is time to go shopping since a repair is not cost effective.

It won't read that there is a disk in the drive. When I put the disk in it makes a lot of noise and sounds like it's trying to start but in the end it quits and doesn't do anything.


If this happens even if you try to play several cds, then lens inside which reads the CDs needs cleaning. Try using a CD cleaner and let that spin inside the cdrom for like 30 seconds. Then try playing the a cd again. If it still fails to read them, you may need to manually clean the lens inside. Open the casing and unscrew the plastic plate the covers the lens. Get a q tip or a cotton bud and damp it with alcohol. Gently wipe the lens' surface and let it dry. Then return evrything back and try playing those discs again.

Hope this helps.
