    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100. The problem is that it doesnt read CDs (originals) while it reads DVDs (originals).

    I have tried everything but couldnt find any solution. I tried to run the recovery disk which was provided to me but the drive doesnt read that as well. But it reads the installation DVD for my cell phone (example). I would appreciate if someone can help me out here.

    Is this with CDs you have burned yourself or does it do this with purchased CDs as well? The reason I ask is that occasionally some CD drives don't fire their lasers on exactly the right frequency for a particular coating, so if you're using one brand of CDRs and it won't read them, that could be the problem.

    If it does it with purchased CDs as well, then I would say you need the hardware to be looked at by a service center. There is no reason why it should be doing that for CDs but reading DVDs fine, short of a laser failure - and that's not something you can deal with yourself.

Please test your Optical Drive with any bootable Cd/DVD if it gets successfully booted from CD/DVD then your Optical drive do not have any problem.
but if it is not sensing the CD/DVD in boot sequence also then there might me problem with your optical Media Lense also.
You need to replace it

Why is my computer not displaying the dvd/cd drive in my computer and not recognizing/reading cd/dvd even after I deleted the upper filter in Device Manager?


Like Vista, Windows 7 has some issues. That's why corporations, school systems and government entities are still on Windows XP. Only consumers have Vista and Windows 7 for the most part.

Since you've removed the Upper and Lower Filters, then remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and remove the DvD/CD drive. Open the lid and press and hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. Put everything back in (DvD/CD Drive, Battery, Power Cord) and reboot.

Dell XPS M1530 has a Blu-Ray drive but can't watch BR discs. Computer does not recognize BR discs. installed Power DVD 9 and still doesn't recognize BR discs. It says that I don't have a CD player.


you need to check that you have the codec for BR video, if you goto http://www.free-codecs.com/ and download the XP codec pack (even if you have vista), install it and then run the DrWatson codec utility, it will list all the codecs installed on your PC. you can also download all the latest codecs from the site.

CD/DVD not working, lapto doesn't recognizes it


It sounds like a problem with part of the I/O for the CD drive on the mother board. If the computer is under warranty, I would see about sending it back for service.

Normaly, if you are using original supported devices, if the drive is not defective and the drivers are installed, it should work.
