Clean the optical head of the DVD drive and try a DVD. If the DVD spins but does not detect, try with a data CD, if there is no reading then the chances are that the optical head is faulty.
If the DVD reads but does not play then the signal procesing section can be faulty. You might need to change the DVD assembly if the unit is out of warranty.

My laptop doesnt have the cd drive. It doesnt read my cd or dvd..


If you have more than one computer and other computer has dvd drive or cd drive you may use it by networking this computer to that one! You may also by external cd/dvd drive for your computer as well which may be easier!

Hello
Head of to the Acer website.Put in your model and serial # of your laptop. Find and download the cd or dvd drivers and install them on your laptop.

Also have you done the windows updates? Usually this will solve the problem.

I have a compaq co60 and the dvd doesnt work and never has since new i can hear the dvd working when you put a dvd in but nothing else happens


This has been a major issue with the model laptop. I've had to order a number of these. If you uninstall the device from the device manager including the drivers, then download and install new drivers, remove the dvd drive and reboot the laptop. Shut the laptop down and replace the dvd drive and reboot, let windows find the drive and install the drivers for it and see if that clears up the problem. The main issue with this drive has been the SATA interface, since that is part of the controller card for the drive, the entire drive has had to be replaced. I have found them on Ebay for approx. 45-50 bucks.

Put DVD in disk drive but laptop doesnt read it


This simply indicates that your DVD drive lense is faulty/dirty, try using a cleaner to clean the lense, if it doesnt solve the problem, then i think you need to look for a change for it.

Dvd/cd drive of acer aspire 5310 laptop not work propery


First step would be to try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. Then see if drive detects. More than likely this problem is caused by a dirty laser lens or improper lens alignment. Cleaning should always be the first step in a problem you describe as 99% of the time it is the cure. Good luck.

Hitachi HTS541680J9SA00 DvD Drive not working


Hi,

Eject the Drive form your laptop, spray the inside with canned air, use a flashlight to see if the holes are occupied by something. Look at the pins for the drive at the back and see if they are all straight. If you have a bent pin tell me before you try to straighten it first, these break off really easy and there is a trick to straightening them. put your Floppy drive in the compartment if you have one and see if that device is recognized in Windows.

Let me know your results.

Regards,
Worldvet
