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

DVD wont recognise disc


If your DVD drive don't show up in device manager and if there's no yellow exclamation mark in device manager, try to check IDE or SATA cable connection from your DVD drive to the motherboard. Also check the cable itself (are the wires inside broken?)

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-rom trouble


Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !
