If the LED is flashing when booting. Look for a pinhole on the drive and get a pn that fits on it, insert and push.This is the emergency eject.

check my computer if its there. If not follow this.
1. Run Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. Delete Upper and Lower Filters on the right hand side pane.
4. Exit and restart.

Hello trying to upgrade my HCT HBR-1000BP Blu-ray Player firmware and can not figure out how. No support on HCT website. Would be thankful for any help


Where are you having a problem? I found directions on: http://hcthk.com/mall/s02.php . There were two links, one with directions and one with an arrow for downloading the needed file.

The firmware is in a zip file. First extract the files from the compressed archived. (For a Windows OS, right click on the folder and select Extract All.) If needed, open the new uncompressed folder and put a blank CD-R or CD-RW in your optical burner drive. Burn the two files from the extracted folder to the CD (drag and drop will work for any version of Windows (XP-7).) Do not include the folder, just the files. Then finalize the disc (close the session). If you are asked to format the disc, choose a mastered burn (single-session). In Windows Explorer, you can do this by right-clicking on the optical drive in Computer (My Computer) or from the menu for the drive when you double-click on it. (Alternatively, if you have your system set to finalize on eject, then choose Eject. This setting is in the drive's Properties (the Recording tab).)

Eject the disc from your computer and turn on the HBR-1000BP. Place the CD that you burned in the player. When the disc is recognized, press Play. If that doesn't work, try entering the System Menu and choosing System Update with your remote. Do not power down the unit during the update; a power failure during the update might leave you with an unusable player.

If this doesn't work, check if the Blu-ray Player reads any CDs. If it doesn't, try cleaning the laser lens with a CD/DVD lens cleaner. Then try again. The Blu-ray uses a different laser. If no disc works and the lens cleaner doesn't help, the CD/DVD laser has a tracking (alignment) issue or another problem. You'll need to get the optical drive in the HBR-1000BP replaced or fixed.

If it does read a different CD, then check if your optical disc burned and was finalized correctly. Can another optical drive read it? Try burning the files to CD on another optical drive. (If you are using an external optical drive burner, make sure that the computer is not running on battery power. Plug the external drive into two USB ports if it isn't self-powered.)

I hope this helps.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer


Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.
Thanks

The DVD writer doesn't recognize that there is a


Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

Remove the drive from your computer, and temporarily connect it to another desktop computer.
If it still does not work, then it's time to responsibly recycle it, and spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer.
