You need to get into your device manager and see if the CD is still showing up in there.
Do a "Scan for hardware changes" to see if it will relocate.
Is this a removable unit? If so, you may want to try removing and re-seating it.
Also, on start-up, go into the BIOS screen (usually F2 on boot) and see if it shows up in there.
But in past experience, when a CD stops responding to BIOS recognition, it was a sign that the unit has gone bad.

I just installed a samsung SH-s222a dvd writer and it's not reading a dvd or a cd. I have a desktop with an XP home edition. Thanks.


Hi os4560
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.
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

I CANT READ DVD IN MY CD DRIVE BUT VIDEO CD IS WORKING


your dvd drive has become faulty...it lost the potential to read DVD...but still it will read all kinds of CDs....try cleaning the dvd lens once using lens cleaner....
if it still does not read then you need to buy a new dvd writer...
it is not recommended to repair the old one....
it will not work good even after servicing,it may work for one or two times again it will not work....
new dvd writer for desktop computer will cost around 1100rupees....
for laptops you it will cost even more....
its better to buy an external dvd drives in that case for laptops....

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Dvd+writer/cd-writer


Maybe your pc has a virus, install an updated antivirus program and clean your computer. Then reinstall your driver software for your dvd + cd writer.
Thanks!
I hope this is a solution!

Yes no problem.

Sure they made DVD writers for those - usually about $80-100.
If you just want a CD burner and DVD player they are only $40-$60.

You can easily eject the drive by hitting the release lever to the right of the CD drive.

The CDRW/DVD combo part numbers are 08K9820 22P6980 08K9818 or 13N6765

They have cdrw/dvd combos for $34 at compuvest.com brand new. I saw DVDrw drives for $70 on ebay -look for part numbers 08k9868, 08K9694, 08K9572, 08K9818, 08K9820, 08K9867, 22P9109, 22P7011, 22P6991, 08k9785, 27L4358, 08k9784, 27L4359
