Dtsoftbuscd00 driver


Driver's do not factor in on whether a CD/DVD can be seen or not. It is most likely a media issue. Put the Windows 7 CD into another machine and see if that machine can read it.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

I have games downloaded on my pc that I got from free game sites. They are legal games that are free because they are sponsored. I would like to take them off of my hard drive and put them on cds to free...


Only if they are designed to be run from CD. Most games are "installed" onto your hard drive and put files all over the drive, not just in their game folder. So copying them from their game folder to a CD may lose support files needed to play. Easiest way to try this out...copy the files to the CD, then delete the files from the hard drive. Then try to play the game. If it won't play, copy the files back to where they were on the hard drive.

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

I have a hp pavilion 8565c and my cd writer plus dose not work at all. I cant even find the prgram in my control panel.


Does it show up in my computer? It would probably be drive d,e,or f depending on how many drives you have. Also check in device manager and see if it is listed there. If it is try re-installing the drivers. What happens when you insert a CD? If it doesn't show up anywhere and will not play CDs it may be toast.

CD will not open. When I opened from my computer and double clicked on CDSETUP.EXE file it asked me for a password which I do not know. can you help?


Hi brengaynor,

When you say CD will not open are you talking about the CD drive tray not opening at all (i.e. you're not able to insert any CDs into the PC) or the program/game CD that you inserted into the computer is not installing or playing?

If the problem is the latter one then I suggest that you try other program/game CDs to see if you're able to play or install those CDs. If they work while this one CD you're trying to install doesn't then maybe you're clicking on the wrong setup file or otherwise there is another procedure to install the program/game into the computer. Consult the manual of the program or the game manual for proper instructions on installing the game. The password can also be on the CD case or manual itself so check it out. Otherwise, visit there website or call up the manufacturer of the game or program you're trying to install/use for further help.

But if your problem is the first one, then to troubleshoot this you have to check if the drive is even getting power when you turn on the computer (blinking light/flashing light), if not then you may need to open up your computer chassis and check the connections of your CD drive for desktops now for laptops you may need to just unscrew the drive from the system and take the whole thing out. Reseat the cables at the back of the drive and even swap power connectors with the hard drive then try again for desktop systems now for laptops you just need to check the drive for any damage and just firmly put it back in place in the drive bay and screw it in place. Power on and try the eject button, to see if it works. If that still doesn't work, and the drive is still not getting any power, then you may have to replace the CD drive itself.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
