Make sure all leads that are attached to your cd/dvd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
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 this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

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.

Ps3 disc spin


PS3 blu-ray drives are famous for this fault. sony know about it just like the YLOD fault but claim not responcabillity. which just sums sony up as a whole really.the disc wont spin as the motor that rotates the disc has shorted out (mainly due to poor parts i.e not brand new) as sony SHOULD be using.
sometimes the solder under the motor heats up so much it just melts and in turn also melts the contacts, thus stops the disc from spinning.
if your good at soldering and are patient, you could have ago at resoldering it again. then send sony the bill!! or do the easy way, open the ps3, remove the blu ray drive, take off the logic board (the main chip board at the bottom of the drive) and buy another drive from ebay. tip for you though, if you have a 60gb ps3, get a blu ray drive from a 60gb machine, if you have a 40 or 80gb get a drive from the same model, etc etc, you need the logic board as they are paired to the motherboard in the ps3, another cheap way sony tried to stop people fixing them and trying to force people to pay them for repairs. LMAO! anyway, when you get the other drive, just plug all cables in to your logic board and disgard the one the drive came with (the new drive i mean) and pop the drive back in once you get the bottom screwed back on, close the top, and that should be you all set again. hope this helps

My hard disc starts spinning when switched on for a minute and then stops while spinning a tut tut sound is coming from inside for one minute and the drive stops then


Those types of sounds come from when the read/write arm cannot initialize the drive or read the data. The only thing that can be done with this unit is warranty work or get a repair shop to attempt a data recovery and drive replacement.

Data recover is very costly especially when the drive is malfunctioning. If you are out of warranty, it will be cheaper to buy a new one but the data will be lost.

CD-ROM won't spin up


When the CD drive doesn't detect a disc or can't read a optical disc, it stops spinning. Perhaps you need a new CD drive or Lens needs cleaning.

Disc Grinding, Not Motor or Magnet Thing


I think the only option for you is buy a replacement drive off ebay (you want the same model doesnt matter about the FW version) swap the PCB of the drives over so the new one has your old PCB. The same thing happened to me but when I lubed the spindle the grinding noise went away for a week at a time, so I got fed up of constantly lubing it and bought a new one off ebay and swapped the PCB worked brilliant ever since. Hope this helps.

Stiffy drive don't respond and DVD Rom spin but don't read CD.


Try different discs to determine whether it's the disc or the drive. If it's the drive the the lens on drive might be dirty, try cleaning it with proper "Cleaning CD" if that doesn't help the drive it self might be going out (as in the mechanical parts on the drive). In the later case the only solution is buy a new drive.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.

Xbox 360 disc drive


To april23

what has most likely happened is that the magnet which holds disks in place has dis-lodged and is now stuck to the roof of the dvd drive. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this would be to open up the xbox 360 and open up the dvd drive to fix.

So if you're not confident at this or in doubt in any way I'd contact Microsoft first if it's still under warranty, if not then it's a case of opening up the drive yourself I'm afraid.

Note. Does the drive attempt to spin up when you put a disk in?

Or does it just make small noises then nothing except "open tray" on screen?
