D Drive stopped working

My D Drive has stopped working, it simply doesn`t recognise any disks, when I click on the drive it says "insert Disk in D Drive"
The system info says the device is working properly, I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but still nothing. Can anyone suggest anything. Thanks

    My combo cd/dvd drive on my acer laptop will read files saved on cd, but if I try to save new files, it says "load disk in drive" and also when I checked its status, it says "working properly".

Will not recognise cdr when inserted.Disk loads on my other laptop


The hardware of your CD/DVD drive has failed. Either replace it, or "network" your two computers together, to "share" the working CD/DVD drive across your network.

When I insert a disk nothing happens, it makes really loud noises asif its about to take off. This carrys on and my computer does not recognise there has been a disk inserted.


The driver for your CD-ROM needs to be UPDATED. click start, then control panel, click performance and maintenance, then click system, click the hardware tab, then click DEVICE MANAGER.under the CD/DVD ROM DRIVES, your CD-ROM should be listed. It may have a "?" mark or "!" to show the driver is out of date. If so, then right click on the device, click the "driver" tab, and click update driver. If the driver is updated, but the CD-ROM is still not functioning, follow the same steps, however; when you right click the device and enter the properties, instead of entering driver, click the "PROPERTIES TAB: and UN-CHECK the box in the DIGITAL CD PLAYBACK. If that does not work, then search online for a driver that is compatable with your windows system,

When attempting to copy blu ray disc message reads disc not detected.(emachine e525)


Although the same shape and size, Blue Ray disks are a completely different format to DVD's and CD's. You drive won't recognise them

You'll need to get a Blue ray RW drive, and it doesn't stop there. Because there a great deal more information on a blueray disk, you'll need several dvd disks to copy the info to a DVD.

Bluerays hold about 25Gb of data, DVD's hold 4.7 GB and CD's hold 700Mb data.

Disk may be a DL DVD (double layer) whcih your drive may not be able to read.
The disk might be a BluRay which your drive may not be able to read.
Your drive may be defective or have a dirty read head.

Drive not spinning properly When I insert a CD, the drive can't spinning properly. So, the data can't read.


If your CD is no longer working properly, then it only mean that it has to be replaced. It is already defective.
It is cheaper to get a replacement, than get it repaired.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.
