Is the computer still under warranty by HP? If so, exercise the warranty.

Enter BIOS SETUP, and check that the motherboard has detected the CD/DVD drive.

Check that the "power" adapter is securely plugged-in to the drive.

Check that the "data" cable is securely connected to the drive AND to the motherboard.

If all else fails, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer, and responsibly recycle the old drive.

IM LOOKING FOR THE DRIVERS FOR, IM LOOKING FOR DRIVERS FOR A HITCHI DVD ROM MODEL NUMBER GDR-8162B 2003 NOVEMBER CAN U HELP


Normally, DVD Drives are plug and play and there are already native drivers (in built software inside the Operating System) installed on your Operating System, hence you do not need to install the driver for it anymore since it should work automatically, once it is connected to your computer.

You can try downloading the firmware for the said device on your computer manufacturer's website (DELL, HP, etc.)

Hope this helps.

My Compaq Presario 1700T will not play DVD anymore. It worked before. Now when I insert a DVD I can hear DVD spin for about 2 seconds then it stops spinning momentarily, then it spins for another 2...


IT'S 16 years old, there is no support for it now. sorry.

we get these here all the time, and no OS stated
why post with out stating what OS this is,
?w98, w2k, XP, VISTA,W7,W8, w8.1 W10.?
nor showing the DVD model there, it has s specific model name
and number (vast types used and sold)
DVD from store, or one you made or others made by hand.
home made or factory made store bought DVD?'
did you try this?
did you try other DVD movies? or look for the VOB files on them?>
Testing 123, easy to harder,
1: try a music CD first. store bought not home made.
2: look for files on any install CD, using the local file manager.
my computer, this computer, or what ever ms calls it this year.
we look to see if the PC can see the files on a real CD. first.

even the HP install CD, or other CD that are not for music or movies, if it cant read a CD, and see fails drive is bad.
or its drivers are missing or corrupted,(virus or?)

3: if this fails open the control panel, (start , CP) then look in device manager (on XP it tricky to get there so tell us if it's XP)
no OS stated, so....no operating system stated.
if the Device manager fails to show the DVD DRIVE,
this means :
A: bad. drive.
B: drivers for the drive are missing (hp has them if still HP DVD drive)
C: the OS is corrupted.
D: running XP , the Dead OS, with out SP3 service pack 3 will be very bad experience in all ways. it has DVD driver in said pack.
E: not running the HP drivers, that hp has. (but HP does not support 16 year old PCs at all) so getting them now is super hard.



the users manual mentions windows 98.
omg is it that old?
the same manual says , only select models has DVD drive.
to make DVD work , special software from HP was installed.
From HP, not MS.
there is a free manual for your PC

DVD drive not seen in Explorer on HP DV8000


If you right click My Computer /Manage/
1. Look at Device Manager. Do you see any "!" marks by anything.....maybe your drive.
2. Look in Disk Management. Do you see the drive there? Have you added any USB or other drives to your PC recently? If so, it could have taken the place of your drive's letter. You may need to change the drive letter.

DVD drive on my HP pavilion 4000 is not working


you need too update the driver for the actual drive itself, not the operating system. if you find the driver on google or the manufacturer website download page and flash it then re-install the driver from the operating system it should work.. hope this helps.... Shawn

obviously and very hard to diagnose.
1-bad drive.
2: bad driver for drive
3: upgrated OS and it dont support this (why post lacking OS)????
4: bad media.

read this.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LightScribe

then at that bottom read HP unstable.
From HP's official site, they started phasing out Lightscribe drives in HP computers in 2011, due to "industry conditions beyond our control."
windows 8, 8.1 and w10 its not supported.
go to HP.com read what your PC supports, with the unstated
by you PC, and unstated OS
tdk and verbatium stopped making them.

not this is dead now
http://www.lightscribe.com/

DVD drive like that is complex.
those yellow marks are clear, bad driver !!!
but getting a good driver can be horrific. in 2017
XP is dead. at MS and almost dead at HP,
are you connected to the internet when you up date
said driver (DVD)
DVD can be formatted vast ways.
you never said whats on it, a store bought movie
or a disk full of UDF files (PDF)
or other vast ways to use any DVD?)

then pick "software solutions"
and HP SoftPaq Download Managersystem software Manager Icon


Softpaq, install, it to your matched OS
then run it
and it magically (if connected to internet)
will install all the correct HP drivers for this PC>4f82b1ea-f17e-4c02-a67a-a95d3adabd58.jpg
