Some disks on a drive will open some wont


Hi there.
If this is a floppy drive then the heads will be dirty and need cleaning just like the old tape player did.
I'm not too sure nowadays but you used to be able to get head cleaning kits for floppy drives.
Also i would suggest that when the drive reads the disks transfer your rare pics to the computer and also back them up to a flash drive or CD.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

My A drive is external and wont open any disk...it wants to reformatt my disk but i have rare pics on it and dont want to lose them


When the floppy drive is external and won't read a disk this means the head is misaligned/dirty/damaged. There is little you can do but try a head cleaning disk, but in my experience its normaly quite fatal when they come up with that.

Cd wont open on laptop


The CD unit may be defective, but the first thing to try is to insert a straightened paperclip into the small hole on the front panel of the CD drive to release it. Remove any disk in the drive, then close it. If it still doesn't open normally it will be more cost effective to replace the drive rather than repair it.

Dvd r/w player will not read pdf, jpg, doc files. It can only read audio and movie files.


Hello Roseanne,
You will have to open "My Computer" to access the DVD ROM and open/explore the disk from there by right clicking with your pointer on it and selecting open/explore or double clicking on it, then you'll be able to access those file extensions as a Data Disk wont auto run like your Video and Audio Disks do.
I hope this helps you.

Hp vectra vl wont start xp, keeps trying to start over


Could you explain what are you booting from if like you said "no disk drive on this". What was the last thing the member of your family does on that PC? Any new installed programs, or hardware? Does the PC restarts itself after that "full circle" or stays frosen?
