About my tower, I have to replace my CD/DVD Drive

I found out by my schools tech support and HP that I need another disk drive. I was wondering, do I have to specifically replace it only with an HP or can I use another device?

Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error


Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

My CD tray will not after removing a fragmented disc that got stuck


It sounds as if there is either still some obstruction within the CD tray mechanism or path, or else the CD drive itself has failed and should be replaced.

I would recommend replacing the CD drive, especially if it has already caused one CD to break into fragments.

Replacing a CD drive should be reasonably easy if you have a tower computer and are happy to open the case.

Depending on the design, there are normally only 2 screws on each side of an optical drive and 2 cables on the rear to disconnect (3 cables if you have a direct sound connection from the drive to the motherboard).

Some case may have a quick release method for removing the optical drive. You should consider replacing the CD drive with a combination CD R/W DVD drive unless you already have a second DVD drive installed.

Cannot get my dvd cd rom to play dvds or cds tried everything apart from taking the tower off model #a1310n Prod# el448aa-aba


If you cannot hear the disk spinning when you put the cd or DVD in you may have a broken CD/DVD drive, easily and cheaply replaceable for under $20 at any store (Recommended: Best Buy). Try putting your Windows Disc into the drive to see if it is only a problem with playing Media, or if it is a problem with the drive itself and go from there. Good luck!

You should check if your PSU is providing enough power to the hard drive. In case the hard drive requires more power, you should either replace it or get a better PSU.

Consult a professional for best results.

How to remove the CD rom drive in a HP Pavalon slimline client?


See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.
