My PC detected my LG DVD reader/writer rom but the rom is not reading maybe you can help me troubleshoot this problem thanks


Make sure the software for this DVD drive is installed into the PC and then your drive is connected to be detected and installed, This will also remove off all previous drives that might cause errors.

Tip

DVD drive not detected.


1) Reinsert the IDE and power cables of ur dvd drive connected with motherboard.
2) See if it gets detected in BIOS.
3) If it is detected in bios, and not detected in windows explorer( ie My computer) do this. Right click anywhere in my computer and click properties or press windows key(bet ctrl & alt)+break. -Select the hardware tab -Click Device manager. -Right click CD/DVD ROM drives and click scan for hardware changes.
4) If it is still invisible, then the changes has occurred in registry. There are 2 filters(upper & lower) which has to be deleted in the registry.
5) There is software called doug knox(CD/DVD fix) it would fix this.
6) To do this process manually, Run->regedit->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->System->Current control set->class->{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}http://lh6.ggpht.com/_lH6HIoVNDJs/Sx3iQ7RdDpI/AAAAAAAAA3Q/a8sWV8GIyuM/s1600-h/Screen%20Snaper%20Image[18].png
7) When u double click the dvd drive and if u get incorrect function. Right click and select properties on dvd drive. Select the recording tab. Enable the check box "Enable CD recording". http://lh4.ggpht.com/_lH6HIoVNDJs/Sx5BFPBRiHI/AAAAAAAAA3o/H1yBWSpDdmw/s1600-h/Screen%20Snaper%20Image[3].png

I have a emachine laptop and it wont load cds,dvds or games whats wrong with ut and how can i fix it


you have to verify if your DVD rom is detected in bios. Restart your computer and press F2 during boot. check if you see the DVD Drive is detected. if yes,exit and boot to windows if no.. your DVD is not detected and might be a motherboard issue or your drive needs to be replaced.
you can also try to clean your DVD lens with cotton or use a DVD lens cleaner

When two drives are connecting cd or dvd it detects only one.


If they are IDE drives, then you need to set the jumpers on the rear of the drives. You should set one to master and the other to slave.

My emachines dvd rom is not detecting a dvd in the drive


Dissamble the dvd rom from pc. Open it and clean the laser with a soft cloth or try a dvd lens cleaner disk. You can buy it from any hardware shop. Connect the cables correctly. Start with a fresh dvd disk. If your pc still can't detect dvd disc, replace dvd rom with a new one.

The dvd-rom cannot be found. cd or dvd emulation software has been detected.


hi there,

try to detect in the CMOS set up. restart your computer in booting process press F2 or Delete tab
and check if your dvd is detected if not you should check the cable/ power connection of your dvd. and then try again.

if detected if your using vista update dvd drivers for vista and then if it is xp you have a like this if you downgrade your pc from vista to old XP. you have this problem. update to microsoft the SP2 and SP3 updates.

Not detect dvd cd


Because you do not have a DVD compatible drive. You need to add one to your system.

My CD/DVD drive won't read CD's or DVD's that I put in. The drive is detected on My Computer.

i would uninstall and reinstall all drivers if you still have the original manufacturer cd, if not go to the website.. i had a similar issue but i got it to finally read the dvd's again.. if you changed your os system then it could be a compatibility issue..

you may also want to check the properties on the drive you are speaking of and make all the settings go to the default ones.. goto my computer and look for your drive, then right click on it to see properties and options to adjust settings to your drive..

it may not be dead yet, especially if it's not old.. hope this helps
