For that problem, Try first replace that internal DVD-rom drive other good internal DVD-rom drive. if not Also Detected or recognize.
Try this second solution. insert external USB type DVD-ROM. if not recognize also, Your operating system Have internal software device data corrupted. You need to reinstall operating System like windows xp, windows 7 (OS) etc.. to fix data Corrupted of operating system device for hardware software.
Please see sample external DVD-rom USB type.

ARTEC DHM-G48R 5.xx (16x/48x) IDE DVD-ROM 16X is not showing up as DVD Drive it is showing up as CD Drive. What do I do to fix this???

If you insert a DVD disk, and then open "My Computer", does it now correctly show that a DVD disk has been detected?

Dhm-g48r dvd drive will not read any disk and green light on front panel keeps flashing???? - any ideas?


Try this quick fix :

What I suspect here is that you tried a bad CD or

DVD disk inside your drive, in that case, get a very

good lens cleaner to clean your drive first.

If that doesn't work,

Get a screw driver and trace the screw holding the

CD/DVD Drive to your system at the back of your

laptop, then unscrew it and remove your drive. If you

cant do this by yourself, just try and get a good

technician to do it for you. Then clean the interface

connecting the drive to your laptop.

After this, power up your system normally without the

drive connected.

Then shut down properly, and reconnect the drive,

making sure that its firmly connected.

Then power on again and check it in the system

BIOS if its now detected, then save and exit, then

boot your system properly again.

If it doesn't work after this, then I'm afraid you might

have to get another drive.

Hope this helps you out.

My computer doesn't recognize the new internal dvd drive.

Make sure that the cable is connected correctly. It can be one complete row off alignment and is difficult to detect.

Dvd drive wont read dvd's

You state a problem here that is going to need a lot more info before a suggested fix could be provided. is this a new drive you added to your computer or a "factory installed" drive? If a new drive, did it come with "driver files" to be installed into Windows and did you install them? During installation, what questions were you asked and how did you answer them? By the way, my DVD drive shows up as a "CD Drive" in My Computer too, but it still reads & writes DVDs. Try right clicking on the drive in My Computer, click on "Properties" and then click on the "Hardware" tab. When the hardware screen opens, try clicking on "Troubleshoot" and follow the directions. This might work if you are in Windows XP.
