First boot of Win 7. New PC build


Hi.

First of all when you are in the BIOS and have set the DVD/CD drive as the first boot device make sure you save the settings before you restart the computer as it will not remember the changes if you don't.

Make sure that the lens on the CD/DVD drive is clean and also make sure the Windows 7 install disk is clean and free of any finger prints.

make sure that you keep tapping a key when the drive spins up as sometimes people miss the "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" message.

If you still can't get the disk to boot then try the install disk in a working PC and see if that reads the disk. If it does then the optical drive could be faulty or does not support DVD format.


Regards.

DVD drive is not working when i have upgraded mp PC to windows7


This is usually an easy solution. I say usually, because not every hardware company has Win7 drivers (not sure why though). Just go to the maker of your DVD Drive and find the right drivers for your drive (if they have Win7 drivers). I would be able to help more if I knew the maker and model of your DVD Drive.

Drivers not working. Can not play any dvd,cd's.Its been about a week. Reinstalled drivers on Help and Support, but still not working. Any Ideas?


When you say Drivers not working, can you please confirm if you are referring to the CD Drives ?

If yes you can first make sure that the Drives are detected in Windows Explorer.

Click on Start Then click on "Computer" or "My Computer"

See if the CD / DVD drive is detected

If the drive is detected in Explorer and not able to read the discs, try various discs of different brands.

If none of the disc is readable then the Drive is gone back and you will need to replace it.

In case the Drive is not detected in the Windows Explorer then you can check if the device is detected the Device Manager.

To open device manager Press the Windows key + R and type devmgmt.msc

Press Enter of click OK

It will open the device manager

look under CD/DVD drive if there is any yellow exclamation mark.

If you see the Drive listed with an Exclamation then follow the steps to delete lower filter and upper filter from the Windows registry Editor.

When I click on a picture folder, the "Picture Tasks List" on the left side does NOT include the "Copy to CD" option like out other XP computer. Why is that?


. Follow the directions below to correct this issue
1) Check to see if the CD-RW or DVD-RW is functioning properly.
  • Right-click on My Computer
  • Click on Properties
  • Click on Hardware
  • Click on Device Manager
  • Click the plus (+) next to CD/DVD Drives and make sure the drive is functioning properly. If it has a yellow checkmark next to the drive, this is the cause of the problem. You'll need to right click on the drive, click on Properties and check the device status under the General tab to see why the drive is having difficulty. If you are receiving a Code 39 error for your CD or DVD drive, visit this page to solve it.
2) If the drive is functioning properly, examine these other options
  • Open My Computer
  • Right click on the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and click on Properties
  • Click on the Recording tab
  • In the Desktop CD Recording section, make sure the "Enable CD recording on this drive" is checked, if it isnt check the box. This is the problem.

NEC CD RW NR 9200A not reading or writing


This is not a driver issue but to make sure, uninstall it from device manager and reboot. The computer will automatically find it and install them again.

The issue is with the hardware itself; the drive will need to be replaced and they can be had for under $25 for a DVD burner which will do more than what the one you have now will.

Cd rom problem


If this is a problem that just occurred and until now it has worked, my first step would be to check that the hardware, (the CD drive) is still functioning and that the software, (the drivers) are still installed and not corrupted. First go to the start button, then control panel, then performance and maintainance,go to system, and then hardware. Look for DVD/CD ROM drives, if you have more than one CD or DVD drive, point and left click on the plus symbol to the left of DVD/CD ROM Drives. Point and left click on the drive in question to highlight it then go to action, scroll down to properties and left click. This window should say that the device is working properly and also at the bottom of this window, under device usage it sould say "use this device, enable". If all of this seems to be working so far, the drive itself should be good.If there have been error messages, there is an option on the last window that opened to troubleshoot. Use it. If so far, everything looks good, now check that the drivers are good. Follow all of the above steps up until you open the device manager and point to the drive in question, go to action. This time scroll down to update driver and left click. A window will open that says " welcome to the hardware update wizard". Point and highlight the circle that says" no,not this time" regarding connecting to the internet to search for a driver. If this device has been working, the driver should still be on your hard drive. Follow the wizard prompts. If at the end of the wizard you are informed that a better match could not be found, then most likely the drivers are still good for this device. If after checking both the hardware and the software, you saw no errors and everything looked as though it were operating, the problem may be more than you can solve without some repair expertise.
