Burner slows when writing. takes over hour per disc. sometimes fails completely or much is corrupted.


make sure your cd/dvd burner is getting consistent power test all of the leads that attach including electrical to your cd/dvd burner make sure the connections are good and dust free or just replace they might be faulty

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver

hope this helps

Hello, the problem is from the cd you inserted into the dvd rom, so it mean nothing is wrong with your DVD ROM. I think what you can do to make the DVD or CD work some how, is to use a dusting powder to clean it and try again. But thier is nothing wrong with your DVD ROM. Please vote me.

My cd and dvd player and burner is not working.When I put a cd in my computor nothing happens. I use to be able to play cd's and play dvd movies, but now it won't play them or burn them.Please help.


Equipment doesn't just stop working randomly unless it died. If you didn't install a new operating system or do anything drastic in terms of deleting files there is a good chance that you may need a new CD/DVD drive. They aren't that expensive though and are pretty universal between computers.

In MY Computer, check to see if the DVD drive icon is there.
Try a different DVD or CD brand
Check the sata or IDE cable connection to the rear of the drive and also the security of the power rail

Sometimes this can be caused by settings or any hardware changes, but if you haven't changed anything probably not. I have had mine act like yours, I ended up installing a new DVD player.
