    Yes, it shows the drive. I can hear it trying to read. Then it pops open cd tray and box comes up saying to "insert cd" when there's already a cd in. I tried cleaning, but this did not work either...keeps popping tray open.

    I've been trying a lot of cd's & dvd's...so far 2 were read and worked fine. But for the rest they just get popped back out. I've tried cd's that I know worked in there previous to problem, but they aren't working either. Is the cd drive just junk now?

    I tried cleaning it, even bought a lens cleaner....still isn't working.

I wanna ask one thing, does your compter show CD/DVD drive in My Computer menu? If yes, then its hardware of DVD/CD drive problem, not a virus. Clean the lens of drive with fine cotton swab, hope it works/ reads.

I'm trying to download a program i bought but my E-driver is not reading the disk at all


Do you mean you are trying to INSTALL a program that you bought and your CD/DVD drive is not reading it? If this is what your problem is first check so see if the laptop is identifying your CD/DVD drive? Open up computer and see if you can see the CD/DVD drive if it's not there you need to install drivers for it. If you do see it then you might be using the wrong media for the CD/DVD drive or you just got a bad disc.

I have a compaq presario v6000 and my cd/dvd drive does not show or read cds, but it does spin when i put a cd in to it, also it does not show in device manager


your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this dvd-drive then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
make sure that the cd-dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Presario V2000 WIDESCREEN, DVD drive not read or write DVDs


I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the notebook in question doesn't have a DVD drive. After looking at driver for that model, it appears it's only a CD capable machine. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

Look at the drive, are there any markings on it, i.e. a "DVD-ROM" or a "DVD" logo? How about a "CD-R" or CD-R/W" logo? If it does not have any type of DVD logo, then it's not DVD capable.

COMPAQ PRESARIO DVD ROM NOT READING ANY CD AND DVD PLS HELP


It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.

COMPAQ Presario V2000 external drive


You don't need drivers for optical devices (CD and DVD drives) as Windows has native support for them.

It sounds like a corrupt Registry entry, which is common with XP.

The following should fix it.

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)

Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Quit Registry Editor.

NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software.


Restart your computer.
