I have a laptop which is compaq 510, now here's my problem... my cd-rom is not functioning very well....i have tried cleaning it by using disk cleaning.... but then it some cd's can't play... i...


Cleaning the CD-ROM drive's lens using the cleaning disc is sometimes not enough. In your case, you need to clean the lens by wiping it with a dry cotton lint free cloth. If you have a lens cleaning liquid from the CD disc cleaning kit, you can moisten the cloth with a drop of that liquid. Then, you should gently wipe the lens with this cloth.
After this is done, test your CD-ROM drive. If you still experience the same problems, then you will need to replace the whole CD-ROM drive.

Problem reloading OS on toshiba laptop


Hi there,

It has to configure the boot sequence into the CMOS settings. You may need to enter the CMOS settings and correct the desired loading sequence of the drive.

If I'm not mistakenly you can go to that setting by pressing the DEL button on your Laptop. There you can see the boot sequence where the first drive you want to load can changed. or you may also try pressing the ESC, first restart the laptop the press the ESC key at least twice, after the list of drive will be display select the CDROM that you want to first load.

Let me know for any clarifications.

Cd rom makes clicking noise and ejects cd


THis happens because (a) the disk you entered is scratched, or not a recognised format or (b) your cd rom is broken. try insertin another disk. if the problem persists, try cleaning it. if all else fails, buy a new drive.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Dvd burner sees CD but not DVD


I've had the same problems. some writers don't recognise certain dvd formats.I've even had the problem with a multi drive. So try different formats till your drive recognises one and stick to that format. I hope that works for you

Cant read previous content..


i can assume you burned the latest in windows vista, as it is in a different format than XP, you may need to install nero incd on the pc that you need to view the contents, you can try it here

Please insert a disk into drive


You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.

Toshiba cd-r/rw drive reads but doesnt write


I checked out the specs for that drive.It only reads dvds/cds.
I see that it has no cd/dvd writing capabilities.

All the cd's you used may still be blank

Do you have another drive you can try out?
