Dvd doesn't work in PC


Check if autorun is active. In Windows 7, this is found by Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay. (In previous versions, it is in a similar location under the Control Panel.) The next thing to try is cleaning the lens if you can. Open up the computer and check if the data cable is loose (either from the optical drive or the motherboard). If these don't work, replace the optical drive. (Internal optical drives are about ~$20-30 for DVD R/W.)

I hope this helps.

EMachines Desktop PC: when inserting a cd drive,nothing happens...


First thing to do is check whether your optical drive is visible in Device Manager:
Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage".
Click Device Manager, then look for a DVD/CD-ROM drives section on the right and expand it (click the plus).

If you dont see your optical drive listed there, or you don't have a DVD/CD-ROM drives section in Device Manager then your PC is not detecting the presence of the drive. In this case if it is a desktop PC you need to make sure both power and data cables are securely connected. If it is a laptop, you may need to just reseat the drive (due to its connector no longer making good contact with your mainboard). This would be a case of unscrewing the relevant screw underneath, pulling the device right out (possibly cleaning the contacts, if dusty), then pushing it back in firmly before putting that screw back in.

If on the other hand you DO have an entry in Device Manager for your drive but it has a yellow exclamation symbol next to it then that means there is a driver issue. This is commonly caused by uninstalling some particular cd burning software. It can be fixed by a simple registry edit...
Run Regedit (Start Menu->Run. Type "regedit", press Enter.)
go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Control \Class \{4D36E965..."
Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" entries. (These will get regenerated...)
Then reboot your computer. Hopefully problem solved.

Cd dvd door wont open.i push the button to put in cd and nothing happens.i do see a little cd on screen ,then it goes away.


Hi,
On the front of most CD or DVD drives there is a small pin hole that you can use to open the drive if it gets stuck. Grab yourself a strong paper clip, straighten one end, insert the straight bit into the hole and push firmly once you feel some resistance.
This will partly open the drive tray to either allow you to remove a cd or insert a new cd or dvd.
Question, Is there a light lit on the front of the drive when you are:
a. trying to eject (instead of using the front button on the drive try using the "Right Click and then Eject" option when selecting the dvd drive in My Computer), If not the drive may be stuffed (broken) or perhaps the 4 pin power connection lead at the rear of the dvd drive has fallen out.
b. is the drive tray sticky when opening or closing? (get a new drive...very easy and very cheap to buy and replace)
Good luck,
Steve (Melbourne,Australia)

Cd rom and cd/dvd drive won't work. I inserted MS Flight Sim x and nothing happens. I have also tried to run the d: drive, but nothing happens.


Check the the connection cables to the CD/DVD drive inside the computer (make sure they are seated). Enter the BIOS using the DEL or F1 key at startup and make sure the CD/DVD drive is detected. If not, try replacing ribbon or sata cable going to drive.

I insert restore disk and nothing happens


Hi there.
If you don't have the option of hitting F12 to change the boot order to the CD/DVD just as the computer starts up then you will have to enter the bios to change the boot order.
Restart the machine and hit either Del or Esc to enter the bios, look for the boot order and set the CD/DVD as first boot device, hit F10 and exit the bios, the computer will restart and you should now be able to boot from the CD/DVD.
Please post back with the results and if you need anymore help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I cannot copy pics or text to dvd


Assuming you have a DVD writer installed and functioning in your computer, check the format of your dvds. If you have a writer that uses dvd-rw it may not recognize dvd+r discs. Your label on the dvd package should have the disc format and your documentation for the writer should say what formats will work in the writer.
