    Hi,



    Thanks for your reply, but I'm computer illiterate. I need to know what to click on to begin with. Where do I click on Run Command Prompt? I click on Start, but I don't see Run Command Prompt anywhere. Hope you can help.

This is a common issue lately and it is caused by a virus that attacks the driver for the disk drives..the only real fix I found to be is to reinstall the operation system and format the C partition during it ...Cause if you try to reinstall the driver by going to device manager and click right on the cd drive ..and update driver ...you will be able to run it ..than choose to get from a list manually ...choose the model from windows list and it will install and appear in My computer again ..but will not work proper and will be right back like it was after restarting it ..
So the way to install it proper again is to reinstall the OS ..or run the recovery partition if it is the case..
Be sure you format C drive to get rid of the bugs ..and save all important file in other partition before proceed..

Hi.

Is it being detected by Windows?

Try to do this:

  • Start the Run Command Prompt
  • Type in "regedit" without the parrenthesis then click ok
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • Then SYSTEM
  • Then CURRENT CONTROL SET
  • Then CONTROL
  • Then CLASS
  • Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • The whole thing looks like this:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • Then delete the upper and lower filters
Let me know what happens.

Try Both of these steps to fix the issue.

Please press the windows key on your keyboard , hold it down, and press R

Type in devmgmt.msc and press enter

If it asks to open, click yes.

Then, you should see a list of devices installed on your computer..

Double left click the cd dvd drive choice to expand it ... Then..

right click on each listing inside the cd dvd section..

And click uninstall.

Once uninstalled. restart the computer, and test the cd drive..

It should now be working in windows normal startup!!

Then, if its still not working normally.

Go to the link below.

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems

on the page that comes up. click on the green run now box.
It will start a file download ( this file is perfectly safe as its directly from microsoft)

Once you download the file, make sure to run the file..

It will run a dignostic program that will attempt to repair and fix your broken drive!

Can play cd's but not dvd's, just a rythmic wirring sound and green activity light


Hey,

just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.

if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

may want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

let me know how that goes.
Thanks,
Ekse

Please Insert disk?


Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.
