Hi soren,
Open up your pc, and remove the cables connected to your cdrom, power on your pc, then shut it down again, connect back all the cables into your cdrom and see if it works.

if you have an extra cdrom, try it out, you might have a faulty cdrom there, or maybe somethings wrong with your IDE cable(if your using that) or your sata cable.

How do I get my dvd/cd to start when I put it in my computer?


You can go to file explorer or file manager and click on the drive letter of your CD/DVD which is usually like a Drive D:, E: or later drive letter.

Once you click on the right driver letter in file explorer it's going to try to read it. It will then open up the files on the CD/DVD or try to start the application you may have installed for reading a CD/DVD.

If you don't have an application installed to view the CD/DVD it may give you a message that "Windows could not find a suitable application to open your file.." but it will ask to pick which application you'd like to try and open the CD/DVD with. Something like media player should show in the list if you have it installed.

Non functioning CD/DVD drive on Shuttle SN41G2 PC


Does Windows still detect the drive? If you were to go into My Computer or Computer (depending on the version of Windows) are you able to see the drive?
Place a DVD or CD (Software or Multimedia) that you have tested on a different system and then use Windows Explorer to browse the drive.
To launch Explorer right click on My Computer (Vista/Win 7: Computer) and then select explorer. Select the DVD drive and see if you are able to view the contents.
If Windows still detects the drive and you are unable to view the contents of a tested DVD or CD then it would most likely be the drive.

I cannot download a family CD on my computer. there is no tool bar with file etc


Unlike a camera memory card, a regular data CD may not auto open/load into your computer. You need to insert the CD into the CD drive while the computer is running,. It should automatically open Windows Explorer and show the contents of your computer. The CD drive will be an item listed. double click on the drive (probably D:) to show it's contents. Then copy any files from the cd to your documents or photos folder.
