    dvd-rom does not recognize the cd

  • witada Dec 07, 2008

    I have Dell Inspiron 530 desktop, about a month ago for whatever reason system stopped recognizing DVDs in the drive. It still sees CDs and plays them, but doesn't see any more DVDs. When I pop in any DVD, computer tells me there is no disk in the drive, and to insert one, but it is physically there.!!!

    drive has possibly failed, or it could be a dirty lens, (cd lens cleaner)

SOURCE: CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

I have IBM think pad Notebook and I can't play CD in my CD Rom CD Rom Name is: HL-DT-ST DVD -Rom GDr808 2n I wanted just play a simple audio CD or install some Software with install CD but I could not....


If your CDROM is older than a year than you need to take it to repair person and ask for service of the device. He will carefully clean the sensitive lense and other parts of the CDROM. If the CDROM does not work even after that you need to retire it and get a new one.
The CDROM drivers are built into windows. Windows detect the device driver once you start your computer with a CDROM in a working order.

Good Luck!

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR


According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.
