Cd draw on computer wont open


Hi,
If you are able to remove the side of your PC so the CD/DVD drive is visible then you are able to remove the stability screws and remove the drive.
Yhis is a fairly simple operation so no need for extreme computer knowledge.
Once removed there is a release pin on the CD/DVD drive which will spit out the CD once pressed.
Thanks

Why is my computer not displaying the dvd/cd drive in my computer and not recognizing/reading cd/dvd even after I deleted the upper filter in Device Manager?


Like Vista, Windows 7 has some issues. That's why corporations, school systems and government entities are still on Windows XP. Only consumers have Vista and Windows 7 for the most part.

Since you've removed the Upper and Lower Filters, then remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and remove the DvD/CD drive. Open the lid and press and hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. Put everything back in (DvD/CD Drive, Battery, Power Cord) and reboot.

I have a IBM thinkpad that has a cd drive only. Is there a way to take out the cd drive and install a drive that is for cd's and dvd's. If so, how would I go about doing that and how much would it cost?


Hi, what it the model of your DVD? Please the correct driver here : www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/TPAD-MATRIX.html

Other tips : CD and DVD drive troubleshooting
  1. Verify the disc media used.
    Try multiple original discs (not burned copies) which are clean and free of scratches. See Information about CD and DVD media.
    Note: Dark colored discs such as black may be more difficult to read.

  2. Verify that the disc is seated properly in the CD-ROM, CD-RW, or DVD drive.

  3. Verify that the drive is seated properly in the ThinkPad system by reseating the drive.
    If another similar machine is available, then verify that the drive works in the other machine and that the other drive works in this machine.
    Notes:
    • The CD-ROM, CD-RW, or DVD drives cannot be removed in ThinkPad G40 and R50e systems.
    • Shut down, remove the power cord, and remove the battery from the ThinkPad system before removing the CD-ROM, CD-RW, or DVD drive.

Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the rear brake load sensing valve located and how can I unseize it


> Enlight Combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM

Remove the CD/DVD drive from your computer, and look at the "back" of it. All the connectors (power, data, audio-out) and jumpers should be immediately visible. Sometimes, it takes some vigourous "wiggling" to remove the white-coloured MOLEX power-connector from its connection to the CD/DVD drive.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

DVD/CD Combo drive, removal/installation.


I believe that this model has a built in drive the only way to remove it is to remove cover to the laptop. If the drive isn't working go into hardware profiles right hand click on the drive and select remove. This will remove it from windows then when you restart windows should find the drive and install the drivers. Make sure you have the software drivers before you do this.

Thanks J
