Not booting from cd/dvs drive, hard drive.

go into the BIOS: depending on your computer has soon as you press the power button press either del, f1 or f2 it normally tells you at the bottom of the screen. once in the BIOS change the boot settings, at the moment it's probable set to boot from the harddrive first. so you have to change it to boot from the cd/dve first

Got a HP DV9700 laptop..running vista 32 bit vista home premium.. my pioneer DVE-k17B is not being recognized by the operating system..

Hi Mark,

    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot

Windows should reinstall the drive when the computer boots back up.

If you take all of the above steps and the system still does not see the drive, chances are the drive needs to be replace.

When i try and play my cd games on my computer, it doesn't do anything, so basically it doesn't read the disc not only this it wont even come up with anything on my computer help me !!

Check the Game CD/DVD requirements. If your game CD is newer than your PC, your PC may not be fast enough or you may not have enough memory - RAM - to satisfy the newer RAM hungry games.

OR one of your RAM modules may have failed. Check System memory summary. If the summary says, ie, 128MB RAM, but you have 2 128MB RAM modules installed, 1 RAM module has failed.

OR your CD Drive may have dirty optics. Insert a CD cleaner disk, run it for several cycles to clean off the optics with the brushes on the data side of the cleaner CD.

Problem when downloading file says installer integrity check has failed. common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. cannot install files.

If you're reading the file from a CD-ROM, then either:
* the CD-ROM drive is reading incorrectly,
* the CD-ROM is scratched, and thus cannot be read 100% correctly,
* bad RAM in your computer, that "corrupts" the data being read from the disk into the RAM.

Replace the CD-ROM.
Replace the CD disk.
Download "MEMTEST86+", and run it, to test the RAM; replace, if necessary.

The CD/DVD rom should be plug 'n' play so no need for a install cd, just plug it in your pc and the pc should automatically recognize it.

in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
