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

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

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it if this fails you might try cleaning the lens it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying If you take a little risk can solve . follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply. 1. When running your pc , open the drawer.> 2. switch off the ac power 3. remove power cable & sata or pata cable 4. remove all the screw from the back side 5. press clip to open the font panel 6. reverse the cd/dvd rw 7. just remove the cover 8. clean the optical lance 9. use a little( not much )oil place on two steel shaft 10.cover all the equipment 11.now you can fit to your pc Ifit does the same problem please change the cd/dvd rw because the lance has defected

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this

you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
