Question about E-Machines emachines (emachinees) CD-ROM Drive

2 Answers


My computer is brand spanking new. Had it for a month. I don't beat on it, I don't abuse it. But one day out of the blue, my computer does not even acknowledge that there is a CD R/W DVD R/W drive. I really need to use this device. There is no cd or dvd in there, so nothing is jammed. It is empty. It will not open manually and it does not even have an icon in my computer to right click on so I could select eject. I even tried windows media player and from menus I went to the play tab and selected eject drive E: and nothing. Please, I really need help. And If you don't mind, I would like a REAL answer to my problem. Most of the responses to similar questions on this topic fall very short of solving ANYTHING!

Sincerely Yours,
Frustrated in NY

We had the exact same problem..We would put in cd's and dvd's and the computer would not acknowledge that we had anything in the drive. We took off the side panel to the computer and unplugged the wire to the drive and then plugged it back in. We actually did this twice before we got it going again.

Check if your drive is receiving any power. Open the case and check the wiring. Mind you dont remove any other cables

How to set time

hi. i'm brand spanking new here as of today...

other than the obvious buttons on the remote--numbers, play, volume...what other buttons are there? there should be a 'menu' or 'settings' button on the remote.
one of them will take you to a screen where you can change the time, or at least to a screen that allows another choice selection to do that.

whenever you get there, the month, day, year, hour, minutes...should be highlighted or blinking.

you should be able to use your directional arrows to navigate left and right to get to the part you want to change, and up and down to make the change.

pressing 'ok' or 'enter' usually finalizes the selections.

(im hoping i can 'track' you to see what buttons you do have/what happened... .
once posted, do i get to edit? :)

Our DVD player stops several time during a movie. This even happens on new movies. What can we do about this?

Tries websites like, buy a set that call a DVD or CD disc laser eye cleaner.Used it might help.If still happening than the laser eye itself it is dying and to be dead soon.DVD players that are having laser eyes are dying or don't read DVD or CD disc like say no disc all the time.Are not repairable except replaced the whole laser eye data's reader itself not practical,because u can a whole new basic DVD player just the same prices or even cheaper.These day a basic DVD players u can buy it like $40 brand new at any major box retailers stores like Walmart,Target..extra.

My cd/dvd port slot keeps getting stuck.

Lubricate it. Otherwise change it for a brand new unit for $15-25 only. Now they are cheap as dirt. & it will last for 5 more years.

Cd/dvd not recognising anything

check if you have connected the dvd/rom according to the specifications entered. if no then do it and check again if the player reads the disk. if the problem persists, and i you suspect its the manufacturer's error, then you can get a free replacement according to the warranty details

Led light constantly stays on remote rcr4358

First off, put in brand new batteries. Not just batteries that are kind of new, i mean BRAND SPANKING NEW batteries right out of the packet.

If you still have a problem:

~hold down the DVD-VCR button-> the red led will stay lit.

~holding down the DVD-VCR button press the number 2 --> the red led will turn off

~Release the DVD-VCR button--> the red led blinks 4 times and turns off.
Hope that helps!
