DVD ROM cant read any cd or DVD

Once you insert any cd in the rom it appears as if it is going to be read after wards the computer sends you an acknowledgement saying that please insert a cd in the rom I had a defective dvd drive. It would not read and eject upon command from computer. The front eject button would not eject the cd. I purchased a new Sony drive and follow the setup. I have a xp system. The device manager in the control panel shows 5 IDE in the Hardware tab. #1 is INtel 8280 #2 is Intel also #3 is Primary IDE and #4is also Prim IDE and #5 id Secondary IDE. I have installed 2 new drives but the system does not detect them. When a system check is made by "Reg Cure" or "PC Fix" the system is ok. Should I uninstall some of these IDE drivers or use roll back?

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

My DVD-ROM cant read Video Files


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for DVD/CDROM Drives, click it and your DVD drive will appear. Right click on it and delete. Restart PC and windows will find your DVD drive again and install it. Try a dvd again and see if it is working, if not it's time to buy a new one i'm afraid, but they are very cheap to replace.
