Go to device manager, by clicking on start, right click on my computer and go to manage and see if it is detected in device manager, if it is, it may just need a new driver. Look for any Yellow ! or ?

If it is not then scan for newly added devices. If it still is not detected and in a laptop, WHILE POWERED DOWN, press gently on the DVD drive door like you are pressing it to be closed. if it has come unseated this may help. If on a desktop this wont help and you will need to verisfy that the cables have not come undone, rare but can happen especially with travel. If neither works, and in a desktop you can power off and put in a different drive. if this works you know your last drive has failed and that you can now be the proud owner of a new drive! If in a laptop a bit harder a not may people have a spare DVD drive that will fit yours just lying around. Try placing a different disk in the drive say a cd and see i it is still not finding it.

My PC detected my LG DVD reader/writer rom but the rom is not reading maybe you can help me troubleshoot this problem thanks


Make sure the software for this DVD drive is installed into the PC and then your drive is connected to be detected and installed, This will also remove off all previous drives that might cause errors.

It wont detect a dvd on my acer aspire 5315 laptop


If your laptop won't detect DVD drive try and check connection first. Turn your laptop upside down and remove three maybe four screw (deepens on laptop) directly over a DVD drive and pull drive out. Blow some compressed air inside of laptop and check for anything abnormal on drive itself. Then put it back in and check if it works. If not it's either bad DVD drive or bad motherboard. Thanks and good luck.

I have a sony optiarc AD-7200A .. earlier it used to detect my dual layer dvd's but now its not detecting them . It just makes a loud noise as if its trying really hard to detect it but it doesnt. It...


Here is something to try as a "quick fix" The drive's laser lens might simply have some dust or particles on it which may be causing it to fail to read the DL DVD's. If you use the drive heavily, and I use mine that way, constant opening and closing of the door always allows contaminants to enter--nature of the beast. Try a cleaning cd first. Did you change brands of DVD's? That's an annoying little phenomenon that I encountered with *my* new drive(LG).Some brands are more easily read than others--I've read lots of consumer feedback from people who've experienced this. Next, try a firmware update--the proprietary software that makes the drive operate. This isn't the drivers on your computer. A lot of times, manufacturers will come out with these special updates which fix bugs, have more efficient methods of reading media, or make the drive operate more smoothly. Hope I helped you.--Rick

I cant play a disc or DVD


Hello,

Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.

Thanks

DVD/CD-ROM drive missing


Problem with missing dvd-drive with Acer 5101 solved.
Problem was that depending on boot, even bios couldn?t detect dvd-drive. I
opened my laptop and found out that there were one small screw that wasn?t
connected to anywhere. I opened the screw that locks dvd-drive in to 2.5? slot. In the back of the
dvd-drive is L- shaped peace of metal. One of it?s screws were already dropped
and 2 that were left were loose. I tightened those screws, but drive back and
got my laptop working fine.

DVD R/W is not getting detected on my laptop


try to run a repair on your OS. What happened there was that your virtual cd software replaced some default drivers from the OS.


Hope this helps.
