Insert a disk. Wait for the disk-spinning to stop.
Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD/DVD drive, to see if Windows can read anything from the disk.

My notebook suddenly shut down itself, then after i restart, it show select which drive to boot (but no option to let me select). Then i try to reformat it, but it show no harddisk install? i have try...


> no option to let me select

This means that no "bootable" CD-ROM was loaded into the CD-drive, *AND* that the "bootable" files could *NOT* be read from the disk-drive.

> it show no hard-disk install

Well, it shows that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the disk-drive
* the electronics "underneath" the spinning-part of the disk-drive have failed
* the "spinning" part of the disk-drive is not spinning (dead motor?)
* the disk is spinning, but nothing can be read from the disk-drive.

Try connecting the disk-drive to another computer.
If it is detected, that's good.
If not, then your disk-drive has a BIG problem,
and replacing it (with or without exercising any "warranty'") is your only way to move forward.

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

Not reading


Disassemble the case, and remove the disk-drive.
Attach it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, and see if the desktop computer can "detect" the disk-drive, and if the files on the disk-drive are still accessible.

Dell D600 not reading any type of disk


When the CD does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD will not be read, therefore the error.

When this problem is beginning you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with cotton tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD drive unit.
