I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

The drive has NOT been able to read the directory of the disk you put in.

Possible causes:

Disk may be a DVD which your drive may not be able to read.
Disk may be a DL DVD (double layer) whcih your drive may not be able to read.
The disk might be a BluRay which your drive may not be able to read.
Your drive may be defective or have a dirty read head.

My CD drive wont read certain disk (example; Ufile 2009, norton antivirus) But it reads games (warcraft etc) Once i put the cd in you can hear it running but nothing is happening. I have windows vista...


one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

Is there a website where i can download a recovery hp pavilion zv5000 disk


If you have a Windows Xp CD and your laptop has the serial no. then
1. Insert the CD in CD-Rom and follow the instruction to install the Windows XP.
2. Once you installed the XP, try to get connect with internet, most of the time the LAN drivers installed, plug the Ethernet wire with your computer go to the browser.
3. type www.hp.com
4. Click Support & Drivers
5. Select Download Drivers and type your product no.
6. Install each component Sound, VGA, Wireless from the list.

This is the simple way to recover your computer without recovery CD. for this you dont have to be technical but smart to choose the steps. Good Luck. Amir

My cd-rom won't read the disk that i am putting in.


If you have a can of air, blow it softly into the cd-rom to make sure dust isn't causing the laser to act weird. Then try a couple of different cd's to be sure and if the problem still exists, then the cd-rom is bad and it will have to be replaced.

Cd-rom drive


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

Reinstallation with recovery disk


I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.
