My dvd drive doesn't work


If it happens for only one particular disk:
Bring that disk to a game store like Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them professionally clean the disk for a couple bucks.

If it happens for all disks:
Clean the cd/dvd with a laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't fix it then the cd/dvd drive will need to be replaced.

Tip

CD/DVD just stopped working.


If you have two partitions on the hard disk and no other drives installed, the DVD drive should be drive E:. If there are more drives, disconnect them. When you boot the Startup, you should see it ask whether to start with CD-ROM support or not. Of course, at this stage, the DVD drive should behave like a CD-ROM. You should see it load the CD-ROM driver successfully.If it still doesn’t happen, see which applies. Else Click on Start>Run>type regedt32 in the run dialog box and press Enter key. Registry editor will be opened. Backup your registry by going to File>Export and save the file with any name. Now on the left side, navigate to the location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control >Class> Click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} At right side delete these files if you find(found) it upper filters,lower filters,upper filters.bak,lower filters.bak and then restart your ComputerHope this will help you.All the Best!

Hello trying to upgrade my HCT HBR-1000BP Blu-ray Player firmware and can not figure out how. No support on HCT website. Would be thankful for any help


Where are you having a problem? I found directions on: http://hcthk.com/mall/s02.php . There were two links, one with directions and one with an arrow for downloading the needed file.

The firmware is in a zip file. First extract the files from the compressed archived. (For a Windows OS, right click on the folder and select Extract All.) If needed, open the new uncompressed folder and put a blank CD-R or CD-RW in your optical burner drive. Burn the two files from the extracted folder to the CD (drag and drop will work for any version of Windows (XP-7).) Do not include the folder, just the files. Then finalize the disc (close the session). If you are asked to format the disc, choose a mastered burn (single-session). In Windows Explorer, you can do this by right-clicking on the optical drive in Computer (My Computer) or from the menu for the drive when you double-click on it. (Alternatively, if you have your system set to finalize on eject, then choose Eject. This setting is in the drive's Properties (the Recording tab).)

Eject the disc from your computer and turn on the HBR-1000BP. Place the CD that you burned in the player. When the disc is recognized, press Play. If that doesn't work, try entering the System Menu and choosing System Update with your remote. Do not power down the unit during the update; a power failure during the update might leave you with an unusable player.

If this doesn't work, check if the Blu-ray Player reads any CDs. If it doesn't, try cleaning the laser lens with a CD/DVD lens cleaner. Then try again. The Blu-ray uses a different laser. If no disc works and the lens cleaner doesn't help, the CD/DVD laser has a tracking (alignment) issue or another problem. You'll need to get the optical drive in the HBR-1000BP replaced or fixed.

If it does read a different CD, then check if your optical disc burned and was finalized correctly. Can another optical drive read it? Try burning the files to CD on another optical drive. (If you are using an external optical drive burner, make sure that the computer is not running on battery power. Plug the external drive into two USB ports if it isn't self-powered.)

I hope this helps.

Computer is not reading the installation disk


By installation Disk do you mean the CD/DVD-ROM? If yes

Check to see if the drive's LED flashes when the system is trying to boot. If it doesn't, open the system and make sure all the cables to the CD/DVD- ROM is properly connected and to the right slots. If the cables are properly connect and the CD/DVD- ROM is still not working replace the CD/DVD-ROM.

However, if its that the system could not install a particular program, make sure the installation files are complete and try again. If its a downloaded program, verify the completeness of the file downloaded and try reinstalling the program.

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

Why won't my console play blu-ray movies


The Wii doesnt play Blue-Ray "BD" Movies, only the PS3 does, also the Wii doesn't play DVD's.
You can get the Wii to play DVD's by cracking the system by placing files on a SD Card, but your Wii will never play Blue-Ray movie because the system doesn't have the blue laser in the cd drive, sorry.

Have a nice day

CD ROM DOESN'T READ DISCS. I NEED TO RE-INSTALL SOME DRIVERS ON MY OTHER COMPUTER, BUT I CAN'T. I WENT TO DEVICE MANAGER-CD-ROM DRIVE PROPERTIES. UNDER OPTIONS DISCONNECT WAS CHECKED. COULD YOU...


Either spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer,
or take the CD-ROM with the files to another computer.
Spend $10 to buy a 4Gbyte USB memory-stick.
On the other computer, copy all the files from the CD-ROM disk to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from the files now on the memory-stick.

The DVD Driver was disappear!


Hello,
This could mean you have motherboard problems, or the drive died... however, the most common issue is windows registry corruption. Right click this link and save the vbs script to your hard drive: Restore CD/DVD in Explorer Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the script file. Ifyou are running Vista or Windows 7 you may have to right click the file and select run as administrator, else if you are running XP just double click the file and follow the prompts. Basically the script deletes some entries in your system registry that cause the CD/DVD drive to be "re-detected" the next time you boot your computer, so once done, restart your PC and in most cases, once you are back in windows, your CD/DVD drive will show up again.
IF this doesn't work, there is a big chance your drive is no good and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps!
Regards, Chris
