My cd drive does not recognise cds


Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is
recognized

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

Cd n dvd drives not recognised in My Computer


If one drive has resently been installed on the back of the drive there is a jumper with 3 choices of c/s S and M if the jumper is set to cs changer one drive to M for master and change the other drive to S for slave and reboot. If it still wont show drives try reversing the jumpers and reboot. If still not working change your cable to the motherboard.

CD drive does not recognise my discs(Sims 3)


Sims 3 comes on a DVD-ROM, therefore you need a DVD drive on your computer rather than a CD drive. As a test, take a disk that you know is a DVD (like a store bought or rented movie) and see if you can read that on your computer. If you cannot, then you probably have only a CD drive in your computer. DVD drives are inexpensive and easy to replace. You can purchase one at a local computer store.

My Lite-On combo sohc-5236v does not read CD but it reads DVD.


The reason for this is most likely Copyright protection. If this is the case, it will read DVDs as it is only a DVD-ROM, but what happens in the case of CDs, is that they recognise the drive as a Burner, and the Copyright that is embedded into the CD wont let the drive read it. This also happens with DVDs in some DVD burners.

The way to test this, is by getting a CD-RW disc that has music or files on it, put it in the drive, and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, then you may have a fault with the drive, but if it does read the CD-RW, then the only way round it that I know of, is to buy a CD-ROM drive and use both drives.
