You might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd rom then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

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.
hope this helps

My Sonic DigitalMedia LE v7 doesn't read recorded CD any more.


Chances are the hardware is damaged and will need to be replaced. This happens over time to eye sensors, and you can replace the eye in it but it's just cheaper to buy a new 10 dollar CD/DVD Burner/Reader from new egg.

I hope this helps.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner


Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

Cd drive cannot read or respond


Unfortunatly it is likely a bad drive, a loose internal connection, or a dieing motherboard. Go to dell.com and ensure that all your chipset drivers are up to date, if that doesn't fix it you will likely have to either RMA or, if it is out of warranty, take it to a repair shop.

My cd rom is not reading or even showen


try to clean it with cd cleaner. after that try your known good cd maybe its just the cd/dvd that has the problem. if still doesn't work try using cd first then dvd. because some combo drive fail to read cd but can read dvd or vice versa. also check for the cd or dvd speed, type and class.
