I am trying to add software to my computer and for some reason its not reading the disk (the disk is new). Install wizard does not come up either.


Click your start button then click my computer then on my computer you will see the icon for your DVD/CD ROM drive right click on it then click explore. Then the files inside your CD/DVD ROM will show on the screen then on application menu click view then details. It shows the details of the contains of your CD then click the application for the software you wish to install. It is an .exe files. You can now install the software. Or you can also right click on your CD/DVD rom then click properties then click autoplay.

Have a HP DVD 840d burner, my pc only recognizes the cd rom not the dvd burner. any help to get this to recognize my dvd burner.


If you load a commercially-produced DVD disk into the drive, does it show in "My Computer" or do you get an "insert disk" message?

If it shows, right-mouse click on the icon, and choose "Explore".
Does it show files/folders, or is there an error-message?

Hi there:

Dvd-rom icon missing


Check: 1. if on pressing the eject button on the drive, the DVD loading arm comes out. 2. if yes, replug your IDE cable. 3. If it does not work try using another IDE cable. 4. If still the same problem, connect it to anothet IDE port. 5. If the problem is still there get your DVD drive checked. I assume you have not fiddled with the jumper settings.
