Hi grneelam, if your dvd is not working, it might not read the dvd.

Try this solution:

if using windows 7 or vista

click start > type run on the "start search" box and hit ENTER > type regedit

> click arrow in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
> click arrow in System
> click arrow in Current_Control_Set
> click Control
> click Class
> click the folder 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002Be10318


on the right side of the registry, right click upper filters and click delete.
You will do likewise with lower filters.

Restart PC and test if DVD will work ...

Thanks

The DVD Drive on my philips freevents 12NB5800 isn't working. The problem is that the draw opens but the laptop isn't recognising the disc. I had tried going onto my computer and double clicking on the dvd...


Either your CD/DVD drive is dirty & needs to be cleaned, or the drive has gone bad & needs to be replaced.
First, try to take the drive off the laptop. Open the drive & blow compressed air into it (from a can of compressed air) to clean it. You could also clean the lens (the small round glassy object inside the drive) using lens cleaning tissues & lens cleaning fluid.
If this did not fix the problem, you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a working one, or use an external CD/DVD drive

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.

See if your DVD drive is recognized when you boot. To get in the Bios, when logo appears during booting, hit "delete" or "F2" or whatever you are prompted.

Also, see that it is reconized without any marks in the Device Manager, once you boot OS.

Laptop DVD/RW Drive


Hi takino, Sounds like you have a faulty connection between your drive and the laptop or you drive has some serious problems. The first thing to try is reseating your DVD drive as follows: -Flip the laptop over with the front of the laptop facing you. -The DVD drive should be on you right. Towards the right center there is a single screw that secures the DVD drive to the laptop, remove it. -Insert a straightened paper clip into the release hole just underneath the DVD eject button on the DVD tray front. The DVD tray should eject. - Use the DVD tray to pull the DVD drive out of the laptop. It shouldn?t take too much force, but it might be snug. -Pull the drive out and look inside the bay. Clean any dust or foreign material in it or around the DVD connector in the bay or the drive itself. -Reinsert the drive and replace the screw. -Start the laptop and test. If that doesn?t work I would suspect your drive is probably damaged. If you are lucky and know someone with an identical unit you can swap drives and see if the problem follows the drive or stays with the laptop. If the problem stays with the laptop you probably have a motherboard problem, if it goes with the drive then you have a bad drive. Replacement drives can usually be purchased relatively inexpensively on Ebay or other parts supply houses. Motherboards, however, tend to be more expensive and are far more complex to replace. Let us know if you have another questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
