Your problem seems the device it not detected properly or is not being assigned a drive letter. First try this, Right-click "My Computer" > "Manage" and then click on "Disk Management", you'll be able to see Cd/Dvd-Rom drive on the lists of available Disk Management snap-ins, right click on the Cd/Dvd-Rom and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths" or it could be "Assign Drive Letter and Paths", once you click it, another dialog box will open up, click "Change" and assign a drive letter from the lists (you'll see an option as a drop-down-list), click "Ok" and restart your computer. You will be able to see the Cd-Rom drive in the My Computer directory.

If this doesn't fix your problem, you need to check the connectors of the cd-rom, means you need to unmount it from the machine and clean the connectors on the cd-rom and on the computer.

It's also possible that the cd-rom itself is defective, in that case, your only solution is replacing with a new Drive.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Unable to detect cdrom after crash / reinstall Vista O/S


hpweb_1-2_minus.gifCheck the Windows Device ManagerDevice Manager is a Windows program that displays hardware devices installed on your computer that are currently recognized by Windows. If functioning properly, each piece of hardware has a corresponding entry in the Device Manager. If a piece of hardware is not listed, then there is a problem. There can be a variety of reasons, ranging from the easy-to-fix (such as missing or corrupted device drivers) to the more serious (such as broken or malfunctioning hardware).If your drive does not appear in Windows Explorer or there is no response from the operating system when you insert a disc, then you should check for an entry in Device Manager. This indicates whether there is a problem or not, and sets the stage for subsequent troubleshooting actions.To verify that the optical drive is listed in the Device Manager:
  1. Remove any discs that may be present from the disk drive.
  2. Click Start , type device into the search field, and then select Device Manager from the list.
  3. In the Device Manager window, expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry. There should be a name listed for each installed drive.If the drive is not listed or the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry does not exist and you have verified that it is listed in the BIOS , continue to the next troubleshooting item. reinstall the default device drivers Device drivers are software processes that allow Windows to use the computers hardware components. If the device driver fails or becomes corrupted, then Windows cannot properly communicate with the drive; in fact, it may not even recognize that the drive is connected at all.
Another common source of disk drive problems is that the correct device driver may have been inadvertently replaced with an incompatible one (for example, a generic driver for optical disk drives mistakenly installed by a third-party DVD burning program). In most cases, device driver problems like these can be resolved by reinstalling the default drivers and then installing any driver updates provided by HP. To reinstall the default device drivers:
  1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. In the System pane, click Device Manager link. If prompted, allow the computer to access the Device Manager.
  3. In Device Manager, click the plus sign c02993920.jpg (in Vista) or the arrow c02993921.jpg (in Windows 7) next to the type of driver you want to uninstall and reinstall (for example., Modems, DVD/CD-ROMs, and so on), unless a minus sign (-) is already showing.
  4. Right-click each listed driver one at a time and click Uninstall . When prompted, confirm that you want to uninstall the selected drivers. Do not restart the PC In the Device Manager pane, select any listed device and click the Scan for hardware changes button (near the top). Windows scans your system for hardware and installs default drivers for anything that requires drivers.
    1. Open Device Manager and verify that your device drivers are listed once again.
    2. After the device drivers have been reinstalled and appear in Device Manager, try running your program again.
      NOTE:Some devices may require your computer to restart. Windows will notify you when restarting is necessary. Save all open files and allow the computer to restart.
    If reinstalling the default drivers does not correct the problem, continue to the next troubleshooting item.

Hi digitaldr445 !
This is one solution , maybe not the easiest one nor the best one but it will work .I understand you have the Win 7 install disc :
Back up your data , especially the drivers .
Extract the hdd out of your lap , put it in a external USB box or use a specific connector to connect the drive to a healthy pc . Format the drive . Place it back into your laptop and reinstall

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) Laptop Levono y530, device dvd rw optiarc AD-7580s I tried to uninstall & reinstall it, but...


Give this a whirl:
CD-Rom stops working. After checking device manager you find an exclamation mark on the drive. It doesn't mean the drive is dead. It could be an upperfilter or lowerfilter registry issue that is keeping you from accessing the cd drive.

This fix worked for my client:
http://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip

Also, try this fix from microsoft.

CD-ROM access is missing and messages cite error code 31, code 32, code 19, code 39, or code 41.

Try this before replacing the drive and remember that you may have to reinstall some burning software.

Optical drive (slot) stuck


you could try to fix this by uninstalling your dvd drive in device manager and then rebooting. this might fix your problems. windows will automatically reinstall the drive when the pc restarts. if you have corrupted files you could try clicking on START, then clicking RUN, typing the command SFC /SCANNOW in the box and pressing ok. this should repair any problems.
to uninstall the drive in device manager, right click on my computer, click properties. you will find device manager on the tab or listed on the left in vista. right click on your dvd-cdrom drive in the manager and uninstall.

First see if your CDRom is loaded by the PC by Right clicking on My Computor.Left click on properties at the bottom of the dropdown.A window wil be opened for you-click on Hardware at the top ,double click on Device Manager.When Device Manager opens,check down the list for DVD/CDRom drives-click on the + button to the left of it.You will then see your drives description below DVD/CDRom.Double click on it-a window will be opened telling you whether your drive is working properly or what the problem is.Usually it will be a matter of reloading the driver software or reinstalling the drive.Some times it is advisable to uninstall the first one before you reinstall and remember to restart your PC after the installation.If you dont find your DVD or CDRom in device manager it has 'nt been installed or the driver software corrupted.Happy landing.Georgeo.
