CD / DVD ROM detected but not reading any disk

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Nov 25, 2008

    dvd-rw will not read most discs I put in. Machine just makes a pile of noises for a few minutes as if it is trying to read something but never does. Some times just putting the disc in will make windows shut down and turn the machine off. The odd time after much waiting a disc may work. These are discs that used to work so don't ask if I have been inserting correct format/kind etc. Most times I need to eject the disc manually with a paper clip into the release hole or the drive will just endlessly run but nothing happens.

CD Rom not detected


CD Rom not detected? As in the Disk or your CD Rom Drive? If it is the disk you should make sure that your drive is compatible to read it. There are different kinds of DVD's out there.
If your Drive isn't recognized this will take a little bit of troubleshooting to determine the issue. First, you should make sure it hasnt become disconnected. Does it open and close? If you go into device manager, is it listed under CD/DVD Drives? Try running a windows update to see if it has drivers for it. You can try to reboot your PC. It is also possible that the drive is actually failing and needs to be replaced.

Ensure the disk and ROM compatibility.
check the CD/DVD in other drive and vice versa (another CD/DVD in PC CD/DVD ROM.
then ensure the booting sequence in BIOS setup. if every thing is ok and fine then the problem is with your CD/DVD ROM.

Make sure the software for this DVD drive is installed into the PC and then your drive is connected to be detected and installed, This will also remove off all previous drives that might cause errors.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

My cd rom/dvd drive will not read any disc


Hi,
Check the cd-rom power is on or not. Then also if its not reading then Insert an DVD/CD cleaner disk and follow the steps. The cleaner disk is available in any of the computer shops. There may be some lens problem. After trying above steps if again same problem occurs then you need to replace the cd/dvd rom drive. Thank you.........
