The cd is stuck in the drive

unfortunately those cd drivers there is only 1 way to get the cd out when the drive has become faulty and thats by opening the computer up unscrewing the drive and removing the rom drive casing to manual move the spindles to eject it.

I need to know how to set up new hard drive after fitting please

do you know how to go to setup section as computer opens?

Some computers you press DEL key others F2 others F10
when computer is just starting.

go there and confirm the disk is visible to hardware.

In the same location ensure you can see cd/dvd ROM

in the same location make the cd/dvd ROM to be first when starting up computer.

save changes if need be.

put your cd/dvd ROM with starter operation system (assuming windows)
and load your computer.

The computer is detecting the CD rom but the cd rom is not detecting or reading any CDs

The laser is probably burned out or the spindle motor isn't turning.
With the price of these units, I'd just replace it.
There's not much you can do to fix either problem anyway.
A CD ROM (hard to find, but some places still carry them) can be had for $5 or $10.
For just a bit more, you could get a DVD burner.

Dvr cd drive won't play cds get message asking to insert a disc when one is already inserted

Your cd drive is damage, the laser head or the spindle is not functioning and is not reading the disc thus causing the message of no cd being insert to appear, however the cd-drive power is still working which the computer is able to still detect, but like I said earlier the spindle/laser head is malfuction. You will need to replace the entire cd rom drive. If you don't know how to replace it, an external cd/dvd drive will also do the job.

I put the CD in CD-Rom the i went to my computer to open the CD but it say "Please insert the disk". Help? I think the CD work in DVD-Rom?

Some disk can be manufactured bad. Simply try another disc & check. If that too fails, then most probably the lens in the CD ROM has failed - better buy a new one.

I want to use the scan fuction, and am told to load cd rom. I have a acer 5315-2808 computer and the cd rom does not fit the spindle of my cd reader.


Your computer can not scan on its own, you need a scanner, you need to install the scanner with the cd that came with the scanner or post the brand and model and I will see if the software is available online.

The cd-rom drive in my computer has stopped working all of a sudden. The cables inside the tower are all connected however it does not recognize a disc being in the cd-rom drive! I also get a warning that...

Replace the Cd-rom drive, sounds like you may have a bad spindle motor and or Laser assembly. Cd-roms are very cheap these days, and you might consider replacing it with a DVD drive instead, which is downward compatiable.

Not recognising dvd player/not playing dvds

Sounds like the laser pick-up is not reading the disc, or the spindle motor is not spinning so the dvd can be read.
