I just replaced the CD drive in my 2200, the eye went out. You can check to see if it's the drive or drivers by uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't fix it, then the drive is bad. The drivers for optical drives are very simlpe, some times they will glitch and need to be reinstalled, but most of the time it's the drive that has gone out.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner


Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

Dell Inspiron 1501 CD-Rom wont play.I can hear it start to spin.Can play stored music.Have no CD Rom or filters showing under "Device manager".


If the CD-ROM drive is not being detected under the device manager, chances are that either the power/data cable is loose or the drive is dying. To check the cables, turn off the power, unplug the power cord, open the case and examine the two plugs behind the drive. Touch yourself to something metal first to discharge static electricity.
If it turns out the drive is dead, then luckily drives are usually very cheap to replace. Somewhere in the line of $15 usually.

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

I have a dell inspiron 1440 laptop i got about 6 months ago and the cd/dvd drive stopped working. how do i fix this?


If there is an error code in Device Manager for the DVD and CD, try this:

Fix for missing DVD/CD drives.

Create a text file with NOTEPAD containing the following data exactly as below and name it FIXCD.REG
You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fixcd.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result

Double click on the file and say yes to the merge into registry question.

----------------------- Use text after this line, contents of FIXCD.REG -----------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]

My cd rom wil not work it just quit working for no reason it will not play any cds or let me burn anything


First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.
