Welcome to FixYa

Dvd drivers are native to windows so you dont need to download the drivers for this. Here are things you can try to remedy the problem.

1. click on start. type device manager, click on device manager on the results field. (note this only applies for windows 7 or windows vista).

This is what device manager looks like on windows 7

My DVD player is not - malups_0.png

click the arrow next to dvd/cd rom drives to collapse it then click on dvd drive. press delete on your keyboard. This would delete the driver for your dvd drive and upon restart windows would attempt to reinstall the driver for it. Note that you need to do step 2 before you restart your system

2. click on start then type regedit, click on registry editor on the results field.

click on the arrow next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
click on the arrow next to SYSTEM
click on the arrow next to CurrentControlSet
click on the arrow next to Control
click on the arrow next to Class
now click on the folder 4D36E965-E25-11CE-BFC51-08002BE10318

if you have don it successfuly then it should look like this

On the right pane look for upper and lower filters. delete both keys.


once you have done both steps then restart the computer. Windows should then attempt to reinstall the driver for you dvd drive

Hope this helps

There is no driver needed. The only thing you can update is firmware.
Is this a PC or laptop? If PC check your data cable to make sure it is plugged in firmly. Is it on a seperate data cable, or sharing with the HDD? Could be a faulty cable. If laptop will the tray open when pushed (laptop powered on)?
**Here is a test. If the computer will boot up from a boot disc then it is a software problem. If the computer will not boot to a boot disc it is a hardware problem.

Can not Find in "My Computer" the DVD RW and DVD


Are the power and data cables plugged in from the DVD-RW to the PC?
If cables are plugged in ans secure, download the driver and install it on your PC. You might need to restart after that.

My dvd writer not detecting dvds . ihave changed my dvd writer with a second hand writer but the problem is remain same


At your PC menu, left click Setting, Control Panel, and Add Hardware Wizard and get it open to find out if your DVD writer is installed and working properly. Otherwise, follow the instruction to get it installed. Thereafter, reinstall the software driver for the DVD writer. Otherwise, get your software driver download at the Internet, and install it in your PC. Just type at the Search engine blank( Download for software
driver Brand and Model of your DVDR,) and choose
the software driver applicable. Then, go back to your
PC menu, click open your download and have it

Hello hope someone can help.a virus completely uninstalled my DVD/CD drivers i cant play any type of disk cd or dvd and when i checked the drivers it was not there i have a advent ert2250 and the dvd/cd...


hi,

A Virus Would Corrupt or remove/Change drivers.
You need to remove The Virus.
You should then remove The DVD Drive Manually from The Machine.
Start the Computer without The Drive, then power Off the Computer.
re-install the Drive, boot up and Hopefully it should be detected in ( found new Hardware ) if not, go to add new hardware wizard, and see if it,s detected there. A Virus Can Actually lock-Off a Drive.

Installed XP SP3 to my Dell 6000 and now NEC 6500a can't be found. Device manager says that the drivers are loaded by cannot find the hardward Code 41


Hi,
see if its recognised in the Device Manager. Start/My computer/Control Panel/System/Device manager.
if so remove or uninstall the Drive.
Physically remove/eject the drive from the Computer. reboot then shutdown. re-insert the Drive. boot computer and see if it,s detected by the system or ( found new hardware Wizard )
re-install any drivers as requested. Installing SP3 shouldn,t do this. unless the drive was actually Virused Or failing already.

Vista cannot find dvd player but says driver is updated


Right click on Computer->Manage->Device Manager->DVD/CD Rom drives. Select your DVD device from the list on the right hand side. Right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot your machine. On start up and after loggin in, your PC should go through the process of detection, installation and configuration of your "newly" found DVD device. Good luck!
