It may be a case of junking it, especially if it is old.

You could, however try....

right click 'my computer' then select 'properties'

on the new box that appears choose 'hardware' from the tabs along the top then choose 'device manager'

A new box will open which lists all of your system hardware. Have a look for an entry which says DVD/CD-rom Devices

click on the + next to it and it will list the disc drive that is installed. double click on the drive and then choose 'drivers' from the tabs along the top, click uninstall and follow all the directions. Once done re-boot the laptop. Windows should find the drive and automatically install it for you.

One other thing you could try is to make sure the drive is located in the bay properly, by pushing it in. Although it is unlikely to have come out as laptop drives are held in by a screw.

If this does not work then maybe it will be time to buy a new drive!

I can't insert any cd's.


Maybe the laser eye is jammed. It tracks back and forth reading data from the disc.
You may either replace the drive or have it repaired.
I had one on my PC do the same vibrating, clicking noise. It only cost 40.00 to replace.
But for a laptop, you're looking between 60-100 dollars to replace.
You can see how much it would cost to repair first, but my guess is it would be cheaper to replace.

My Equium laptop will not play audio cds-starts then cuts off.dvds still work.


The laser lenses of the CD and DVD are different.

If you have already updated the firmware of that CD/DVD drive the solution is replace that drive.

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.

I can't play CD/DVD from my laptop. When i opened the device manager, there are 2 drives: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device and WC6037K IYL929R SCSI CdRom Device. The first device doesn't work when i...


In Laptop obviously there is only one CD/DVD rom drive present.

So first confirm have you got any mark in the device manager entry for WC6037K IYL929R SCSI CdRom Device. If yes then you need to go in the BIOS and detect the Boot priority and enable the CD Rom there.
Check out the event viewer entry if showing any red cross entry related to CD/DVD rom and try to search it out on net.

If the CD/DVD drive is opening or ejecting out then it working and if it is not may be the failure in Drive and need to replace.

Other entry you had mentioned is for RAM (memory)

Toshiba A305-6825 laptop prolem (no visible CD/DVD Rom drive). In Device Manager: HL-DT-ST dvdram gsa-t40F ATA device error. Media test failure. There appears to be CD/DVD combo drive firmware...


You seem to be onto things (though your problem classification was generic instead of for your Toshiba model A305.) Install all the updated drivers for your laptop from the laptop's support site (Toshiba's, that is) so you can use your drive. Drives fail sometimes, and you could try sticking an old movie or something in there instead of nothing, but it is likely it is just the missing driver.

Cd/dvd driver has been uninstalled


Go to your device manager. Click on the + next to cd/dvd rom drives. Right click on your cd/dvd and click on uninstall. Reboot and Windows will say new device found and install what it needs. This should fix your oroblem.
