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.

Samsung DVD Rom Drive does not read disks


Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.

Sony DVD+/-RW |DW-Q30A will not record cd or dvd & only play dvds


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD , or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

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

DVD


first try to change your master-slave pin in your CD-DVD ROM
and reconnect bus connections or change your DVD ROM bus.
if the DVD-ROM and Hard disc are connected in a same bus just put them in seperate buses.

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
