Compac Presario V2000 DVD CD read problem

I have compac presario V2000 and having problem DVD-RW drive. It does not read CD. When I click from drive directory then the contents shows empty. I still can read DVD-movie, Presario-driver-CD. The device manager shows working property with "HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4080N".
There might be I accidentally uninstalled something *3**filter** software but I doupt it was reason for this problem. Is there any reason suddenly stop working only read CD. I am sure the CD contents is good. problem is presario DVD-RW-drive. Is there something require specific software to make the HDW works property more than drivers?

Compac presario wont recognize dvd or cd player

The first question I have is do you see that the DVD or CD player have power? IF so, shut your computer down, open the tower and double check that the ribbon cable is securely connected to the motherboard and then to the DVD and CD player. Make sure also that the power connectors are secure.

Do you see the devices in device manager? If not, then you have a driver problem. If you have question about how to find device manager, please let me know which opeating system you are using.

I stand ready to assist you. Try these suggestions and let me know what happens.

My HP Compac Presario 5000 PC cd rom drive E door is stuck. Do you know how I can easily fix this?

hello, take a paper clip staighten it up and insert it straight into the little hole next to eject button. This will manully push the tray out, once you have the tray out take out the cd/dvd if there is one in it, pull out the tray all the way out and then push it back in try testing it again to see it works now.
if not try a simple restart to see it fixes the issue, if not;
once pc is up and running again go into device management and uninstall cd/dvd drive and let it re-detect it.
here is how:
right click on "my computer" then select "properties" then select hardware tab, then click on device manager, click on the + sign in front of your cd/dvd rom drive, right click and uninstall, then finally click on Action and select "scan for hardware" option.

tel me know if this fixes your issue or you need more help.
good luck
