My computer does not recognize my cd's, only recognizes memory sticks, cannot download pc tutor learn windos vista or any other cd's.
first go to my computer see if drive shows up…
second (figuring it didn’t) go to control panel -> System -> hardware(tab) -> device manager
third check to see if little (!) is on the tiny pic of cd-rom drive if so you have a driver problem and need to reload it off your system restore disk or windows disk (do this by right-clicking on cd-rom, -> properties
and click roll-back driver first, when that fails click re-install driver and do that…
fourth after doing that and restarting, and the comp STILL fails to see it, open up comp. take plugs out the back of cd-rom and look at them (shouldn’t be dusty on inside, make sure no burn marks on power cord plug-in) then plug back in snuggly… restart again and see if that works… if not…
fifth…. go to comp store and buy cd-rom for >$20 (if that much)
best-buy, walmart, online at tiger direct, etc.
