Hey Dale,

It sounds like there is an issue with the laser in the CD-ROM drive because it spins for 10 seconds trying to read the disk and stops because it cannot. If you try and put another disk in and it does this then the CD-ROM is bad. You can find replacements online for reasonable prices. You can also go to most electronic stores to purchase a replacement. They usually run around $30 dollars or less.

Thanks - Tech101

Cd drive not playing cds or dvds


Sadly if you have tried a number of CD's in this (I'm assuming its a DVD/CDRW drive), then the drive may be broken. If it spins the disc up when you put it in and there are no rattles (indicating a worn bearing), you could try a DVD cleaning disc which will clean the laser lens, which might help, but depending on how old the drive is, there is a chance it is simply worn out

The eject function is not working, the yellow led is blinking, as if the machin was reding a disk, but it never opens. I tried also to open it using the screen option but it does the same thing, the lead...


Take it apart and see if the laser is moving up and down (focusing). If not, then the laser focus servo is bad. After it focuses, the spindle motor should turn and the disc should spin. Remove the spindle lock from the top of the drive case and before it spins quickly place the lock on the disc before it spins to hold the disc in place. If all these processes occur and it still doesn't read, check the lens to see if it's dirty or foggy - clean the lens with "Q" tip and alcohol. if this doesn't work, remove the disk and see if a red beam shines through the lens - if no beam, the laser is bad.

This is an indication of mechanical failure of some part of the ejection mechanism. Since they are more expensive to fix than the drive is worth, replacement is your best option.

In addition, since the CD remains spun up and the activity light doesn't go out, there's probably something else wrong with the drive in addition to the failed ejection component.

Wont read disc


Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...

Cd drive led light flashes orange four to five times then stops


Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

It shows what is on the disc, but CD drive keep turning. What could be the problem?


i think there is no problem at all...it is memory-thing...the computer must always keep updated eventhough u r just look at the icon that ceated inside CD.otherwise it will stop if u do nothing for a long time (if i correct, for about 5 minutes halt)..CD use ROM which means Read only memory-so, i hope it answer your question....

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.

CD-ROM will not read any disc


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!
