Most likely yes. Fortunately this is a cheap fix, less than $30 for a new dvd writer.

I cant play the game an error says No disc inserted. Please insert the original "NBA2K11_EU" CD/DVD


Does your CD/DVD reader successfully read any *OTHER* CD/DVD disks?
If not, it is broken, and needs to be replaced.

If the drive works, then Insert the original 'NBA 2011' CD/DVD disk, when prompted.

Hi, my pen drive is not accessible l8ty, wen inserted in ne pc u can c the Removable Disk but wen double clicked on it it says " please insert a disk in Removable Disk ". please help


Try these first

First off try it in a different computer and if that can read it then you know for sure that the problem is with yours.

If it does not read on another computer chances are the drive is dead and whilst uncommon it does happen.

Also if "shell hardware detection" is turned OFF in W7 then it wont tell you when it is plugged in but you can still read from USB devices. You just have to browse the "removable" devices from windows explorer Try them all if more than one is listed

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

DVD wont initialize, it will not see a disk


Look at your local mart for a laser lens cleaner disk. It has little brushes that will sweep dust off the laser lens, possibly helping it to better read the disks. Failing that, the unit is probably trash. You might be able to find a replacement drive mechanism for it, but it'd probably be more expensive than a new one.

CD Drive is not reading disks


It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer to replace your "dead" (broken laser) optical device.

Your old xbox is not up to date, so it is reading it wrong. Just because the older they are if not updated on live it will read games and DVDs wrong.

Combo Cd/Dvd Drive is not reading Cds nor DVDs


1. Remove your burner from your computer then open it by removing the screws under the burner.
2. When the cover has already been removed, get a cotton bud then soak it in alcohol to clean the lens. Because the lens might just be dirty. Then after that put the cover back by screwing it again then install it back to your computer.
