If you want to boot from it, go in bios, on pc startup at black screen, pres F2 ,F5 or del, and enter boot setup, then search on tab...Boot order, and set 1st boot device at the list, to the name of your CD drive. Thats all. Good luck!

Please rate my solution! :)

6. Click OK

Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ROM drives listed in Device Manager.

Note you may need to reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

At this point CD digital audio extraction should be enable and you do not need to have the CD audio cable connected between your ROM drive and sound card. Note if you have an older computer (CPU under 1G) then you may need to have CD digital audio extraction turned off because your computer may not be able to handle the data from the CD on the system bus.

There are no hotkeys that disable a CD.
I'm thinking that your problem is that the CD has gone from the registry.
Download and run CDGONE. Here is one source:

I"ve lost my (E:Drive)


Welcome to Fixya

This can happen due to Three problems.

1) Might have disabled the DVD rom. To check this, Goto control panel->DeviceManager->CD/DVD Rom. Where you can enable/disable the device.

2) The Drivers for the DVD rom may not be installed or may be corrupted. Please use the drivers cd or visit the dell site to update the drivers.

3) The CD DVD Drive may be loosely connected. If can risk at opening the chasi and try connecting it properly

The system may need to be restarted if you perform any of the above activities.

Rate the solution appropriately.

You may not have a CD burner in your computer or it is faulty.
Make sure you have a CD RW drive in the computer. You cannot burn a CD using a CD ROM drive. If you have a burner then Roxio will detect this drive.
You may not have enabled your CD drive to record.
Click on My Computer, then right click on the CD drive and click on Properties, Click on the Recording Tab, then tick Enable CD Recording on this Drive.

I can't play CD/DVD from my laptop. When i opened the device manager, there are 2 drives: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device and WC6037K IYL929R SCSI CdRom Device. The first device doesn't work when i...


In Laptop obviously there is only one CD/DVD rom drive present.

So first confirm have you got any mark in the device manager entry for WC6037K IYL929R SCSI CdRom Device. If yes then you need to go in the BIOS and detect the Boot priority and enable the CD Rom there.
Check out the event viewer entry if showing any red cross entry related to CD/DVD rom and try to search it out on net.

If the CD/DVD drive is opening or ejecting out then it working and if it is not may be the failure in Drive and need to replace.

Other entry you had mentioned is for RAM (memory)
