Hi, you need to check whether the device is detected by your Windows and if you have verified that both on BIOS settings and under the My computer icon the Cd-rom is recognized, it only means that this is already a Hardware issue. You can contact the manufacturer of your computer so that they can replace the drive and it should be under warranty so that you won't be charge for the repair.

You can also try this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks

Either spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer,
or take the CD-ROM with the files to another computer.
Spend $10 to buy a 4Gbyte USB memory-stick.
On the other computer, copy all the files from the CD-ROM disk to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from the files now on the memory-stick.

I have had this for a long time, but i want to reinstall the driver because its not accepting dvds anymore


Hi,

The MS-8148 is a CD-ROM drive, it can only read CDs and not DVDs.

On a DVD the information is packed much more tightly and needs a different kind of laser to read it. This is why a CD-ROM drive cannot read a DVD disc.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Regards,

Chris

SC-152A/COM black CD-Rom specifications/ can i write onto a disc with this product?


Hello,

Sorry but no, The SC-152A is a read only CD-Rom drive not a burner. You will need to get an IDE CD-RW drive to add to you system to be able to burn disks. If you are going to get a drive the price difference between a CD-RW and a DVD-RW drive is very little so you might as well get one that will also burn DVD disks and the CD disks. You can get a dirve at www.newegg.com for $23 plus $2 shipping that will do just what you need. If you need help finding one on their site or you need additional help please email me at: tech@ccl-la.com

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

Drive will not read cd rom, reads dvd and audio


CD rom drive is dead!

Time to go out and buy a new one. Rough cost is anywhere for a DVD BURNER is $25 - $40.

DVD burner are now the mainstream drives replacing CD roms.
But if you can still get a replacement CD rom from a computer in town should be cheaper than a DVD burner.

DVD burner can read and write DVD's and CD's.
