If there is a yellow ? where the CD/DVDROM drives are in device manager then it's most likely a windows glitch. If you use this microsoft knowledge base link it should resolve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Just let it run the guilded help so you don't have to manually modify the information there.

Cd not recognised even though device manager says drive is working well Help please?


It seems that you have no problem with software side. Then obviously the problem is in the hardware side of your DVD drive and need technician service.
Thanks

The dvd drive not work model satellite L355-s7902


Check in device manager to see if the computer can detect it or if it shows a yellow ! or ? To get to device manager
  • Right Click on Computer and click Properties
  • Select Device Manager on the left, or in Win Xp click hardware tab and then device manager
If it doesn't show up at all I would say the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. Type your exact model number into ebay plus dvd drive and you should be able to find one cheap.
Let me know what you find out and if you need help replacing the drive, just comment back and I will walk you through it. Usually it will just be held on with one screen located on the back close to the DVD drive door but about 3-4" toward the middle.

Can't get the Cd/Dvd drive to work, Windows vista doesn't show it in the device manager, I have a n HP Pavillion dv6500 notebook around 3 yrs old


If the device manager does not recognise the drive then it has most likely failed. You should be able to remove the drive, one screw on the underside, and reboot, Once you have done this power down, reseat the drive and power up again. If the Plug and Play software doe snot recognise it then you need a new drive.

Laptop wont recognise dvd drive after installing Vista


Hi Docpayton,  Sounds like you are having hardware connection issues.  First, i would try right clicking on 'my computer' and under that, go to manage.  Find the tab that says device manager and find your CD/DVD drive.  Uninstall the product/ or press delete. (whichever one it is)  Now your computer should immediately notice you have a cd drive and will install it for you.  I hope this works, because i havent had a computer with that problem in a long time, and i am running off of all i remember...  Tell me if you need anymore help.

DVD/CD-ROM not recognised


I can't find much information on this model from the web-site, so I'll make a few generic guesses. http://www.benq.us/support/downloads/downloads.cfm?product=598 Can you see the DVD drive in the Device Manager? To access the Device Manager, right click on My Computer and select Manage. Select Device Manager from the Computer Management window. Do you see the optical drive under DVD/CD-ROM drives? If you do, then try putting a different CD or DVD in the drive. If you do not, then try shutting the laptop off, ejecting the drive from the laptop and then re-seating it in the laptop. This of course will only work if the drive is modular, which most laptops in the last few years have. Power the laptop back on and check the device manager again. If you still can't see it, then there are two possibilities. 1) The CD/DVD drive is bad. 2) The connection on the motherboard is bad for the CD/DVD drive In either case, both motherboards and cd/dvd drives are customized in laptops for every vendor, so you will have to contact yours in order to get a replacement. http://www.benq.us/support/contact/index.cfm?region=78&query=4
