Hello,

Have you check all connection to see if they are right, if you have and yet your computer did not still recognize your cd rom, i suggest you change your connecting cable or connecting ribbon because it is possible that the connecting ribbon you are using is damaged or bad.

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer


It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

Jensen cd player no longer working(self-installed)


First check the wiring to the radio. You may measure the power being ok but you also need to make sure the ground connection is ok. If this is all ok it may be that you have dry solder joints on wiring socket inside the radio or a blown track or protection diode.

Try to go into System BIOS. Once you are in use the option Load Defalut settings.
And if any external device is connected other than CD-ROM, please disconnect it.

Tray starter and InstantWrite Control Center have stopped working!


I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!

CD ROM doesn't detect discs at all?


My best quess wouldbe that the drive went out and you just don't realize or want to admit it. Switch it back to another system to test it, if it still dosn't work scrap it. Otherwise I would try booting to dos with an old 98se disk, see if it's your OS if it is, reinstall 2k.
