Check out the Jumper setting of the CD/DVD drive as the Jumper setting is not proper or your H-disk and CD/DVD drive can have the same jumper setting so only can be used at one time .I think you should also update your CD/DVD driver form your system disk.

The Samsung CD-Rom SC148A on my Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize any discs that I insert. Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it, the driver is up-to-date, troubleshooting provided nothing,...


It might be dirt on the pickup lens, and you can try cleaning it. The best way to do that is to take the drive out, remove the cover and use a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaning solution. The cleaning discs you can buy aren't usually effective. But if you're going to go through all that effort, you may as well just replace the drive. If dirt isn't the problem, the most likely cause is that the laser power has dropped too low for the discs to be read, or the pickup has failed. In that case, you'll need to replace the drive anyway. A new CD-RW/DVD-RW drive is only around $20 (or something equally inexpensive in your local currency), and it's easy to change the drive, so it's really not worth worrying about trying to repair this one.

Wont read disc


Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...

A CD-Rom will only recognize CD's. It must be a DVD-ROM to recognize DVD's. DVD-ROM will recognize CD's ,but not the other way around. No drivers needed for thes, they are plug and play.

Cd -ROM does not recognize any disc that is inserted into it.


hi

Okay first does "any disk" mean ANY disk, or any disk in the same pack of blanks ? Some cheap media has this problem.

If not, then you probably have a hardware problem.

Try checking Device Manager for flags. Report them here.
someone will know more .

If none, your optical drive may be bad.

I'm assuming "delete the drive and reboot" means uninstall the drivers Device Manager. Did they have any flags before ?

Make sure to enable "show hidden devices". You might have a non-plug & play device driver in conflict, and they are hidden.

What software are you using to burn disks ? There may be a problem with that. If there are no flags in device manager, uninstall the software (if it's Nero, Roxio or something). You can reinstall the software later.
