Some times the problem is with the windows where some action you've done caused the deletion of the driver of your cd, you could try fix that by restoring your system follow these steps:
1-start menu
2-programs
3-accessories
4-system tools
5-system restore
from which you chose to restore you system to the recent restore point, if not working try the one earlier and so on untill its OKay.

Dvr cd drive won't play cds get message asking to insert a disc when one is already inserted


Your cd drive is damage, the laser head or the spindle is not functioning and is not reading the disc thus causing the message of no cd being insert to appear, however the cd-drive power is still working which the computer is able to still detect, but like I said earlier the spindle/laser head is malfuction. You will need to replace the entire cd rom drive. If you don't know how to replace it, an external cd/dvd drive will also do the job.

Wont read or recognise there is acd inserted


When you open my computer do you see the drive in the window? If the drive does not show up in this window you can check two things, check to be sure that the cable connecting the drive to the mother board is good. And the other issue could be that the drive itself has gone bad. If it is unable to read any cd's then you probably need a new drive. Be sure to put in several cd's to be sure it is not the cd disk.

Good morning! please try to check from the Device Manager if your CD drive is enabled & working properly, if not we have to reinstall the driver, then after reinstalling the driver if still it doesn't read the inserted CD, then try to install a new CD Drive unit -if it works then the previous CD drive unit is defective. best regards

Cd roms wont read it says i/o device error


Your error is usually indicates that the drive can't read the CD. I ask everyone these two: check to make sure the CD is right-side up (label facing up or to the right on a vertical oriented drive) and did you insert a DVD into a CD drive? Can you use Windows Explorer and right-click on the CD drive letter and select eject and it works? If not, a driver could be missing. Lastly, if you inserted a blank CD (that can be written to) into a CD drive that can only read CD's, you'll get that error.

Maybe your cd cannot be read anymore by your CD drive.
be sure that the cd is cleaned and no crack traces on it.
Please try another a very new CD/DVD to see if the CD drive can read.

if read then, your cd is damage. but there is some CD drive that cannot read some cd disc. You should select maybe the cd rom compatibility.
