    Same issue, mine is installed in a server, it worked fine for a couple weeks, then went complete inop...won't read anything yet the system reports no problems...driver updates do nothing, uninstall/reinstall does nothing...time to ban this brand from my network...

    Last year in November I bought this Y500 notebook with serial no. EBO6582129. After 5 -6 months the problem with the dvd slot in drive began as it was not able to detect any data on 90% of cds and dvds which I put in.



    I contacted service guys and the problem was rectified after changing the dvd drive. During my three visits to the Nehru place service centre in the last one year (first for dvd drive replacement, second for travel adapter replacement and third for the mother board replacement) I must have seen atleast hundreds of consumers having the same problem with the DVD slot in drive.



    Now again none of the cds or dvds can be accessed from my system due to low grade product used in your system. Kindly tell me what should I do for this persistent problem with this slot in drive.



    Can it be changed to a tray type dvd drive or I have to get it replaced every 6 months as per my personal experiences.



    Moreover I guess that the product service has been expired some days back(which I am not fully sure of whether it has expired or not), in case it got expired what should I do to extend the service warranty.



    Kindly look into the matter and give me a permanent solution for this dvd slot in drive. As in the last one year I had to go to the service centre thrice and I never expected these kind of low grade or not reliable parts from Lenovo.

I too had the same problem, just take the DVD case out by unscrewing it from the bottom, then open the DVD case and jently clean the lens with a warm cloth. Put it back in and start your computer. It will work well.

Go to HP on line and seek the current drivers for the DVD drive. Or try the Control Panel/devices. Look at the Device list and seek out the C/DVD line and UPDATE DRIVERS from there.

It may be necessary to upgrade the "firmware" (software residing inside the DVD unit) to recognize the "newest" of blank DVD media.

Each "blank" disk has an identifier electronically written onto the disk -- if the firmware does not recognize that identifier, it needs to be upgraded in order to recognize it.

Check Toshiba's "support" web-site for a firmware update.

kckaza -

Get a lens cleaning disc and run it following the instructions. You likely have dust or dirt on the lens which is making it difficult to read the blank DVDs. This is aq common problem that has a simple solution (They run about $10).

After i try to find the registry (which is not available)
Why not give this a try:
  1. Start your computer after SHUTDOWN
  2. After your DESKTOP appear on the screen for about 10 second, QUICKLY INSERT ANY CD/DVD (in my case I insert Glee)
  3. Let the computer run for a while, don't do anything until it settle down
  4. Check at MY COMPUTER whether your cd is detected
  5. I got mine work this way!. Good Luck my friends!
