Computer reads the hardware when it is connected with the mothermoard with a data cable and the hardware can even work if not connected to motherboard because there are 2 cables connected with every hardware. 1 is power cable which makes the hardware gets ON and the other is data cable which makes it work so we see it in the computer. Your data cable connection may have gone faulty so its getting on and taking the CD but is not reading it.

Another thing may b that the cd is not good so change the cd and insert a new cd.
Hope that answer your question?

Try reading the disc on a computer that has a DVD drive - should be able to detect what files are on it. If you can't record anymore, then the disc probably got "finalized" on the camera.

Drivers not working. Can not play any dvd,cd's.Its been about a week. Reinstalled drivers on Help and Support, but still not working. Any Ideas?


When you say Drivers not working, can you please confirm if you are referring to the CD Drives ?

If yes you can first make sure that the Drives are detected in Windows Explorer.

Click on Start Then click on "Computer" or "My Computer"

See if the CD / DVD drive is detected

If the drive is detected in Explorer and not able to read the discs, try various discs of different brands.

If none of the disc is readable then the Drive is gone back and you will need to replace it.

In case the Drive is not detected in the Windows Explorer then you can check if the device is detected the Device Manager.

To open device manager Press the Windows key + R and type devmgmt.msc

Press Enter of click OK

It will open the device manager

look under CD/DVD drive if there is any yellow exclamation mark.

If you see the Drive listed with an Exclamation then follow the steps to delete lower filter and upper filter from the Windows registry Editor.

Go to the support.dell.com webpage, enter the service tag number, located on a label on the bottom of the laptop, and download the latest BIOS update and drivers for the CD/DVD drive. You can verify the drive type in Device Manager. Once you have downloaded the files, upgrade the BIOS, this will restart the system. Next, remove the CD\DVD in Device Manager and then install the new driver for the drive. When the driver has been installed, Open Device Manager and right click on My Computer at the top of the list and left click on Scan for changes. The drive will be detected adn installed with the new driver and the registry will be updated.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works for you.

Cannor Read DVDs


I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.

dot.gif Unable to read a CD-R or other recordable disc. Question: Unable to read a CD-R or other recordable disc.
Answer: Unfortunately this can be a difficult question to answer because of the amount of potential reasons for this issue to occur. Below is a listing of several steps and recommendations that can be taken to help identify the cause of the issue and/or resolve this issue.
Drivers Verify you have the latest drivers installed for the CD-R or recordable drive. There are numerous driver related issues that may cause a CD-R drive or other recordable to stop reading a CD-R disc. If you are running Microsoft Windows verify your drive is properly detected and listed in Device Manager with no conflicts or errors.
If Windows Device Manager detects an error on the drive or if it has other drives listed in Device Manager with errors on them remove the device from Device Manager and reboot the computer to let Windows re-initialize the drive.
If Windows shows no errors, the above steps did not resolve the issue, or you are running a different operating system check with the drive manufacturer for updated drivers. A listing of disc drivers can be found here.
CD-R disk Not all CD-R disks are compatible with all types and speeds of CD-R drives or other recordable drives (especially earlier CD-R drives). Verify the manufacturer gives 100% guarantee for supporting all drives and disc speeds, for example, TDK discs often give a 100% guarantee.
Pre-mastering/Mastering Software Pre-mastering software can sometimes produce incorrect tracks due to bugs. An incorrect ISO image could be generated, or incorrect sub header codes could be recorded in the case of Mode 2 discs. A good way to check whether the incompatibility problems lie with the originating software or with one of the other causes listed above is to test the same disc on several CD-ROM drives. If one drive is capable of reading the disc back correctly, chances are that the problem was not in the mastering, but is one or more of the other factors listed.
Disc is a recordable disc that the drive or player does not support Verify the drive supports the recordable media you are attempting to read. Below are some situations to watch out for.
  • Old CD-ROM or early DVD drive - Some early CD-ROM drives and Gen 1 DVD drives (some of the first DVD drives released) do not support CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs. Not only does this apply to computers but also home entertainment DVD players.
  • CD-RW in CD-R or CD-ROM drive - CD-R drives are incapable of reading CD-RW drives. If you are using a CD-RW disc verify the drive is a CD-ROM or CD-R drive is capable of reading the disc.
  • DVD recordable discs - If you have a DVD recordable disc and are unable to get it to read verify that the DVD drive is not a Gen 1 DVD drive and/or that it supports reading the DVD recordable media you are using. Additionally a standard CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, etc drive is not able to read DVD discs.
Disc was created incorrectly Make sure you're creating the disc properly. For example, a common mistake users make when creating audio CD's that they can listen to in their computer, car, or home stereo is burning the MP3 files or other files directly to the CD as a Data disc and not an Audio disc. All this will do is burn the data files to the disc and not create an audio disc. This may allow you to listen to the audio files in the computer but will not allow you to listen to the music in the majority of other CD players unless they support MP3 format.
Disc or DVD contains media content not supported by the player Not all home entertainment DVD players are capable of supporting and playing all the different formats movie files and audio files are stored in. Make sure the format or codec of the movie or audio file you're saving to the CD or DVD is supported by the DVD player. If you're computer is capable of playing the files off the DVD but your home entertainment DVD player is not able to play the file it's likely you're encountering this issue.
Bad disc If after reading through the above recommendations you still continue to have the same issue it's possible that the disc is a bad disc. Try re-burning the disc and if possible try a different type of recordable disc.
