If it provides you with a list of devices which are installed continue to the bottom of the list and choose:

add a new hardware device

then choose the automatic option and it will try to detect the new CD - drive

also previously did you see the CD-Rom device listed in the device manager ?

    if the BIOS cant detect the drive , it's not connected properly , it's not a matter of Enabling it within BIOS , you must make sure it is properly connecting through the IDE or SATA interface and properly connected with power !

If you can't see it, on the My Computer panel, it's not there..and this will require going into bios to make sure settings are good.

    you will NOT be able to see that drive, if the BIOS can't..you will need to enter setup(be careful in that area) and enable the CD rom..

My cd rom will not work it lights up and spins when a cd is in but i tried going to the device manager and search for changes and it didnt do anything does anyone know anything that will make my cd dvd...


CD drives are made so cheaply nowadays that it's most likely one of the components in the drive has failed. With the low price of CD drives it's probably best to just put in a new drive.

My PC somehow deleted it's own cd/dvd driver. Possibly from a virus that has been eradicated already. Any idea where I can download one from that will work with the dimension 2200?


Hello,
You should first run the add new hardware wizzard, looking specifically for CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives. If the drive is not defective Windows will most certainly detect it and install the appropriate drivers.

To run Add new hardware wizzard, Go to Control Panel, On the left (WIN XP) choose classic view. Find the Add New Hardware icon and click on it. Allow the wizzard to install driver automatically, allow it to go tho the Internet if necessary.

Hope it helps.

I'm trying to burn a home movie and the burner doesn't recognize my disc. Its a fujifilm DVD-R. Do I have the wrong kind of disc?


probably do, most drives support dvd+r, i did same thing b4 and bought a 100 pack of dvd-r and didnt work on my drive. Maybe you can read the front of the drive and see what formats it says. Probably DVD+rw?

Dvd disk drive not showing in my computer


Hi!

The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks

Dvd / cd rom not recognized on my computer list


1) Go to Control Panel. Open the System Icon.
2( Click on Hardware Tab, then click on Device Manager.
3) The device manager will list all of your hardware that is on your computer.If you see a yellow? mark oryellow ! mark next to your DVD/CD rom drive,simply click on it then click Repair. It also may tell you that it is not recognozied. Follow the directions.
4) If you do not see this in your Device Manager go to Add Hardware in your Control Panel which is next to your Add/Remove Programs icon. Click on Add Hardware and it will scan for all hardware.
** This should take care of your problem.If not then somehow the actual connection in your tower has come loose. If so you must open your tower and look for a loose wire going to your DVD/CD rom drive.
*** Please let me know if this corrects your problem.Simply email me(Phil) at: philw19642002@yahoo.com

Hi, I still haven't been able to update the xbox 360


Hi,
the update will only allow you to play backwards compatable original xbox games.
you must have a hard-drive fitted also, as this is the hardware that the update disk updates.
To burn succesfully in Nero:- you need a blank CD Or DVD.
open nero and select create Data CD/DVD. then when prompted to add files, add default xex.
then select next, then burn. always burn at 4X speed or lower if possible.
ensure along the way, that the boxes are de-selected to add more files later. as this will not close or end the session. therefore the toc-table-of-contents will not be written to the disk.
i,d suggest using a re-writable CD/DVD as you can have numerous attempts, at getting a sucessful burn.
If you still have any problems, please forward me your e-mail address, and i,ll post you the disk free-of-charge. p&p is chargable.

Many thanks for your request.

I went to go burn a cd and it said that i have no cd burner on my computer but i know that i do, but my computer wont even play a dvd or a game, i think i might of accidentally uninstalled my cd drive, is...


Hi

Ok First to ensure that your CD-Rom / DVD is installed correctly

Goto the control panel if you can see a whole list of icons find and click on system

otherwise find Performance and maintenance and then click on system

now up the top of this new window find and click the hardware tab

finally click on the Device Manager button , this will bring up the Device manager window


in this window look for and expand by clicking the plus Icon next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives

if you see anything in here your CD drive is installed. You will probably find that either you optical drive is either disconnected and the ribbon cable connecting it to the motherboard will need to be checked , or you have got a faulty optical drive

If you cant see anything in here go back to the control panel and find add hardware if you cant see that icon click on printers and other hardware and in the left hand side bar click on add hardware.

This will bring up a step by step wizard

after clicking next on the initial screen windows will do a scan and try and detect any hardware devices that have not been installed yet. If on the next screen you are asked "Have you connected the hardware?" please open up your PC and check the ribbon connection on the reverse of the optical drive and make sure the power connectors etc are properly seated.

If this works follow the on screen steps and installation will be straight forward.

Hopefully this will solve your problems

Cheers.

If you have any other queries please respond

Thankyou

My LG CD Writer ejects automatically without any operations...


This is normally as sign that the writer is faulty, especially if ejecting on your pc's start up. Just go through this first to check if it's just a driver fault. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
