My Phillips blue ray burner is not recognized by Windows 7


you might have to physically unplug the leads for this blue ray drive then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
make sure that the cd-dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.




hope this helps

My CD drive wont read certain disk (example; Ufile 2009, norton antivirus) But it reads games (warcraft etc) Once i put the cd in you can hear it running but nothing is happening. I have windows vista...


one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

Cd buner want work


1. if you can dissable your pc, do it. take out the cable going from CD ROM to mother board, take it out and put back again firmly. Check all cables are connected properly.
2. Restart PC and try.
3. check if you have updated drivers installed, if not get from internet and install.
4. Switch off and on the PC and see if it detects.
5. if not go to control panel>add remove hardware>check for new hardware see if it detects there and add.
6. if problem persist and if its in warranty go back to the vendor.
7. If nothing works, then purchase an external CD-ROM(probably USB) and enjoy. It won't be that expensive.

Rate me for my solution.
