There could be a lot of reasons why your drive is not working properly. It could be that there is a service from your burning software that is not running properly thus affecting the CD-ROM. If you have any of these software, try un-installing them.
You can also try this for an automated fix from microsoft.

I have optiplex gx620 mini pc but it dosent read any cd and dvd but sometimes it does read the cd do i have to change the bios setting for that


Hi Ayesha,

I would suggest you to do a lens cleaning of your DVD-ROM drive , as it seems it reads the disc sometimes and sometimes it does not as a result of possible dirt accumulation on the lens.
There are lens cleaners available in the market which has a disc with a brush on it , which cleans up the lens.


If that does no work , then you need get the replacement if the drive is under warranty or check it with your friend's computer , or get a new one, as DVD - RW drives also come cheap these days , so a repair job proves costly sometimes.


Hope this helps..:) Your feedback will be appreciated.

My cd/dvd (sh-s182d )rom read cd only but it wont response


CD/DVD ROM drives like yours employs two lasers to work properly, one for CD read function and the other for DVD read function.

It seems that your laser for DVD reading is either dirty or damaged.

Try an optical drive cleaner, if that does not fix it, you are going to have to replace the drive. If you have warranty then replace it or have it fixed. However, if your warranty has expired then the best thing to do is to buy a new one. They are not expensive these days so the price difference between fixing it and buying new should not be huge.

A lens cleaner disk should be available from most computer shops.

I assume you have proper software for DVD video playback like PowerDVD, VLC media player etc.

CD - ROM


If you haven't tried reinstalling the drive, this may help:
- Open the Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Click on Device Manager
Locate the DVD-CD-ROM entry and expand it. Highlight your optical drive and press 'Delete'
If it argues with you, answer 'Yes' to the question of deleting the drive(s)
Reboot your computer and watch for a message box reading that a 'New Device' was found and software for it is being installed.
If it still doesn't want to cooperate, then the drive is probably 'toast' and will need to be replaced.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.

CD ROM doesn't detect discs at all?


My best quess wouldbe that the drive went out and you just don't realize or want to admit it. Switch it back to another system to test it, if it still dosn't work scrap it. Otherwise I would try booting to dos with an old 98se disk, see if it's your OS if it is, reinstall 2k.

well try to clean the lens with a clean and dry cotton swab. ir you have a compressed air duster for electronics, use it also. remove the drive and open the cover. look for small like circle glass(lens) clean it. use also the compress air duster by hitting the below parts of the lens assembly to remove accumulated dust and test. if the problem persist, its about time to replace your drive. good luck!
