This can happen if the CD you place in the drive might not be readable or it is corrupt.
Or your Drive needs to updated with firmware update.
check with your manufactures website for updates.

How do you get the install disc online if your computer want read the disc super multi drive install disc for windows


These days not many disc drives need external drivers. First I would check in the device manager, usually accessible from the control panel and see if the disc drive is listed. If it is and there are no notifications it probably doesn't need any other install. If you select it and right click then select properties it will tell you if its working OK and which drivers are installed. If there is a problem select reinstall or update driver and it will search for one and install automatically. If it can't find one and there is still a problem simply use a search engine put in the name and model of the drive then free driver download, there will be instructions on the site.

Gateway 550mx booting


If it's detected in Bios then it's either a Laser pick up issue, i.e. no longer able to read content of a disc OR the Disc itself isn't bootable. It just depends what exactly happens with a message or not happen when looking for boot files on disc.

CD/DVD Is Not Recognized
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Many times, after inserting a disc into the CD or DVD drive, the disc is not recognized by that drive. CD-read and DVD-read issues can be caused by many sources. Perform the procedures presented in this General Computer Advice article when troubleshooting CD-read and DVD-read issues.

Begin with the first procedure and continue through the list. Try using the CD or DVD after each procedure is completed. For any procedure that requires changing current system settings, record the original settings before completing the procedure.
  1. Verify that the correct disc (CD/DVD) is used when prompted to insert the disc.
  2. For programs on DVD, verify that the drive containing the DVD is a DVD drive and not a CD-ROM drive. Most DVD drives will haveDVD printed on the front of the drive. For programs on DVD, consider the following:
  • DVD drives can read both DVD's and CD's.
  • CD-ROM drives can read only CD's.
  1. If multiple disc drives (e.g., CD-ROM and CD-RW, or DVD and DVD-RW, or CD-ROM and DVD-RW, etc.) exist on the computer that can read the disc (refer to the items under Step 2), insert the CD or DVD into the other drive and try the program again.
  2. If you are attempting to install a program and the installation does not begin after inserting the CD/DVD into the proper drive, refer to the program's instructions for the installation procedure.
  3. Clean the CD/DVD in the following manner:
  1. Place a small amount of nonabrasive liquid soap on the shiny side of the CD/DVD.
  2. Using your fingertips and warm water, gently rub the soap on the CD/DVD in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the CD/DVD thoroughly and dry it using a clean, soft T-shirt or lint-free towel. (Do not use paper towels or tissue paper.)
  1. Try to use a different CD or DVD in the drive to see if that disc can be read.
  2. If possible, insert the problem CD or DVD into the DVD or CD drive of another computer to see if the issue persists.

I have a gateway 6000 & windows7 my disk drive says no disk in drive when there is


Verify that your machine has a DVD drive (not a CD-RW or CD-ROM). The Windows 7 disc is a DVD and will not be read by all drives.

If you don't have a DVD drive you will need to:

--Install one
--Use an external (USB) one
--Follow Microsoft's guide for installing it off of a USB drive:
Go to Microsoft Store and buy a download of Windows 7 . While you’re there, get the free Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool and the instructions for how it works. Then use the tool to set up a USB drive that you can use to install the operating system.)

My Vista Home Premium Disc comes up as a blank DvD


Try using any other DVD disc in the drive, if other DVD discs are working normally then the issue may be with the reading speed supported by the drive.

If the Vista DVD disc is burnt at higher speed than that supported by the DVD drive then drive reads as blank disc.

So, you may check the maximum read speed supported by the drive and the speed the disc is written.

Furthermore, check if the disc doesn't have any smudges or scratches.

It sounds as if the disc drive laser has died, when they burn out they will not recognize any disc inserted. fortunatly a replacement drive is relativly inexpensive to replace.

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.
