Please provide the complete details.. make and model number, operting system!
Make sure you've tested more than one CD in the disc drive, it is possible for one CD to be bad or dirty and not be read properly

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. Double-click System
  5. Click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button or just the Device Manager tab.
Within Device Manager verify that the CD-ROM has no exclamation marks or red Xs. If listed with a yellow exclamation mark or red X, remove the CD-ROM by highlighting the drive and pressing the delete key and reboot the computer to reinstall the CD-ROM drive

Trying to install on windows 7


um, more information would be nice.... im assuming you are trying to install the OS its self?

1) when you boot, go to your bios options (usually f8 or f12, it says when you turn your computer on)
2) go to the boot order menu and move the CD-rom/ DVD-rom drive to boot before the hard drive (sometimes denoted as hdd)
3) place the cd in and reboot your system (after saving the changes!)

note: some motherboards have the boot menu as an option (usually f2, but it depends on the mother board manufacturer). if you see that, you can pick that option instead of the bios menu, and it will give you the choice to boot from your cd drive!

My hitachi 1tb xl1000 drive wont read my files and is saying that the drive is not formatted. What is this?


It means that there is no operating system installed on your hard drive and so it will not work until you add one. Buy a windows xp disk or an operating system that you wish to use and put the disk in the cd/dvd rom. Reboot the pc to get it to pick up on the disk in the drive and then follow the prompts to install an operating system.

I just bought a offline game,its a dvd rom.then im beggening to install it into my computer but my dvd drive did not read it.


Check that you bought a PC ROM Game Cd but not a PS2 (Play Station) DVD. These wont work in a computer CDROM. If its fine, then you might have bought a damaged DVD.

Start up troubles


Hi,
What you,ll need is a system restore CD.
Usually supplied with the Computer/Laptop.
Your only other option, is to enter the systems BIOS Setup if possible, and instruct the the computer, to first boot cd/dvd rom drive, with your windows or operating system cd in, and carry out a new installation. this could be a missing file/driver issue. or failed RAM ( Memory ) Which can only be determined by listening for Beeps at system startup.

Cant install driver cd rom on computer


Hi,

Assuming that you have a Canon PIXMA MP530 multi purpose printer, to get hold of the driver/installer, pls click here. New window will show several guide files and "No firmware updates are available for this product." Nonetheless Select OS and click on your Operating System. Page will refresh with drivers, file name mp530vst110ej.exe. You must have Java installed and enable in your browser for this to work. Download and save in your PC. Click to open and install. Follow on screen instructions.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.
