This is usually a sign that your disc is corrupt or that the drive itself has failed.

Cd drive door won't stay shut


This is an indication that the CD-drive is detecting that the inserted disk is not FULLY inserted.
If it is fully inserted, and it is mis-reporting the condition, then spend $35 to purchase a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Dvr cd drive won't play cds get message asking to insert a disc when one is already inserted


Your cd drive is damage, the laser head or the spindle is not functioning and is not reading the disc thus causing the message of no cd being insert to appear, however the cd-drive power is still working which the computer is able to still detect, but like I said earlier the spindle/laser head is malfuction. You will need to replace the entire cd rom drive. If you don't know how to replace it, an external cd/dvd drive will also do the job.

Device- SONY CD-RW CRX320EE It is detected by the OS(Xp-64bit). Device Status- working properly. Disks(any type) when inserted not detected . More over i can access the drive when i double click it even...


make sure it is not a DVD disk you are trying to insert into your Drive because your Drive is a CD-RW will not read DVD nor burn onto it.

Your disk may be damaged or corrupt and the drive cannot read it.
your drive may need a firmware update from Sony.
use this link below to access Sony's website to download drivers.
