My BD-ROM drive doesn't seem to be working?


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer


Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

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.

How can I get my dvd to copy videos when it reads, No Disk? when there's a disk in the player?


hi, possible problem with the dvd, the lens doesn't read the disc or the spindle motor not rotating that is why can not read a disc. try to clean first with a cd lens cleaner, just insert a cleaner to the player to remove dirt and might the lens get sticky. now if still doesn't work, you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the internal part. check for broken part or any obstacle that can block the rotation of the spindle motor.if the motor doesn't rotate anymore you can check the resistance if still there using an analog tester. if no resistance at the pin terminal of the motor, the coil was worn out then you will need to replace the motor.

What's your problem? cd drive won't open


if you have warranty - contact the repair center, if not, open the case and check if the power plug of the Cd/DVD drive is all the way in. unplug it an then plug it back in again.
If that doesn't help - buy a new drive. they are like 30$ nowdays and install it the same way in like the one that doesn't work was installed.

Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

My CD/DVD drive is not reading Rosetta Stone - Espanol Edition. It stars and spins, but then stops. OS: Vista SP2 Disk Drive: Unknown RAM: 3 GB - DDR2


Try playing a music CD to see if it works. Then try playing a DVD ( a DVD movie ) and see if that works. If the CD works and the DVD doesn't then your CD/DVD drive is probably the problem and needs to be replaced.

I want to burn photos onto a CD. The box I have


You can burn any type of file on a dvd-rw disc. However your cd burner must be dvd-rw not cd-rw. To verify your device open my computer (on most pc's) you will see drive c (your hard drive) and drive d which is your cd rom it should say dvd-rw.
You may also need dvd burning software for more information about this click here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/expert/jones_02november25.mspx

Transfer Email to DVD R


Save the email to your desktop (File - Save As). Put the blank CD or DVD in. Go to My Computer and open the DVD drive. Make sure the window isn't maximized so that you can see the desktop. Drag the mail file into the DVD drive window. Windows may process the file for a few seconds. In the DVD drive window click "Write these files to CD". It will burn file onto the DVD.

Problem regarding my laptop


Do you mean after you put in a CD/DVD they are not starting up/loading?

For Windows XP:

You can open up My Computer, Right Click the CD/DVD Drive and choose Properties. Click the Autoplay Tab at the top of the box that opens up and see what option is selected.

You will see a drop down menu box that you can choose the different types of Autoplay features: Music Files, Pictures, Video Files, etc.

Under Actions, is Select an Option to perform selected and is Take No Action the option selected? Below that box is the option to "Prompt me each time to choose an Action" selected?

You can go to each category and set your preferences to tell your computer what action to take for each type of media you put in the CD/DVD Drive
