    Sounds like a Driver problem, or a cd-rom that died, try it in another computer, to verify.

First see if your CDRom is loaded by the PC by Right clicking on My Computor.Left click on properties at the bottom of the dropdown.A window wil be opened for you-click on Hardware at the top ,double click on Device Manager.When Device Manager opens,check down the list for DVD/CDRom drives-click on the + button to the left of it.You will then see your drives description below DVD/CDRom.Double click on it-a window will be opened telling you whether your drive is working properly or what the problem is.Usually it will be a matter of reloading the driver software or reinstalling the drive.Some times it is advisable to uninstall the first one before you reinstall and remember to restart your PC after the installation.If you dont find your DVD or CDRom in device manager it has 'nt been installed or the driver software corrupted.Happy landing.Georgeo.

Try cleaning the lens that sits on top of the laser - use something like

If that doesn't work then the laser has died, and the entire unit with it - it happens. Time for a new one, it's just $30 at every pc shop.

The first thing to do is get the DVD drive to work as Win 7 is a DVD. If your CD player plays CDs then maybe a new drive is required before you can go anywhere.
External DVD drives are £20 ish so not too bad.
Hope that helps.

You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

Make sure you are placing the CDs in the drive with the label side up. If the computer can read DVDs, it can certainly read CDs as well. Once the cd is inserted, wait and the autoplay should start the installation program for the software.

My DVD RW drive won''t open and the one below it opens sometimes,


Hello;

Have you tried Windows Explorer; "right" click on the drive and select 'Eject'?

Also, if it's not reading at times - sounds like dirty lense; use CD/DVD cleaner; you can buy those anywhere these days very cheaply.

I hope that helps,

Thanks.

I have a hp pavilion 8565c and my cd writer plus dose not work at all. I cant even find the prgram in my control panel.


Does it show up in my computer? It would probably be drive d,e,or f depending on how many drives you have. Also check in device manager and see if it is listed there. If it is try re-installing the drivers. What happens when you insert a CD? If it doesn't show up anywhere and will not play CDs it may be toast.
