Hello,

I assume this is a CD drive that you are referring to. If it will not read any disk it is possible that the drive is bad or that the cables aren't connected properly.

You can verify that the drive is connected properly by closing all screens and opening My Computer and if you see the CD Rom listed there it should be fine.

Also, if when you insert a cd you here the cd spin up and start clicking about once every second it is very possible that the drive is bad.

Thanks

Has your computer detected the drive?
Go to your device manager and see if it is listed
If not go to control panel then Add Hardware (follow the prompts)

Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error


Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

Disk space


How big is your hard drive?
Download ccleaner from:

http://www.ccleaner.com/

this will get rid of all your uneeded files.

go to start>my computer>

then right click on your c: drive and select properties.

this will tell you how much of your drive is used.
Defragging usually dosent pay any rewards when you take into account how long it takes compared to any benefits.

if space is that tight then i suggest buying an external usb hard drive. these are cheap and easy to install and you can copy all of your non system files over to it.

What do you mean by not reading the disk?

When inserting a disk to the DVD drive, it runs an autorun program if one exists on the disk. By nature autorun will not run again if the disk stays in the drive. If you want to run the content of the disk, you have to execute autorun.exe from Windows Explorer. Let me know if that doesn't answer your question
