Have you checked how the drive is listed in device manager? You may need to find the Firmware for your model of drive and Flash it. This usually isn't as hard or scary as it sounds. :)

    Do you have Nero burning software? They have some useful Drive reading tools and problem solvers. I had a drive that would not burn dual layer until I installed their software. It sorted the problem straight away.

How DO i Fix DVD Writer Works As CD ROM Only. Not Detecting any DVD.


There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

Fix DVD/CD ROM to work Acer M1610, Computer not detecting DVD/CD ROM. No drive is seen how to fix this, what are my options. OS is Vista


Hi rossclark3,


Try to check the jumper settings of your DVD/CD ROM if it is properly assigned as Master or Slave.
Afterwards, also check the cable connecting the DVD/CD ROM to the motherboard.
Finally, restart your PC and check the BIOS Setup if it can already detect your DVD/CD ROM.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Tsstcorp cddvdw ts-h653f ata device doesn't read the cd/dvds. It says no cd is detected insert and try again although the cd/dvd is already in


No solution yet? I think I have the same problem. Dell Inpiron 530 with same drive. I think my problem is hardware failure as Microsoft disk application can't fix, Dell diagnostics suggests hardware problem. Still I tried deleting drivers so windows would reinstall. Even tried going into regedit to no effect. Just can't read what is in drive. CD/DVD does not make the usual disc spinning sound.

I think I'm screwed. Warrenty ran out November 2010. Was having problems before that, but I failed to act on it. From searching internet, this drive may be a dud. Mine failed in less than a year.

If you are asking for the information regarding the ODD here it is: DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash? drive supporting 11 formats * Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (4x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVDR (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (4x), DVD-RAM (5x) * Supports Labelflash? media to burn high quality labels directly on the disk. If not ( Cant read CD or DVD ) then most likely the lens on the ODD is already busted. or ODD cant be detected then just go to the Website support.toshiba.com and download the latest update for the ODD. And install the driver on your NB and restart the NB. If still the same then the ODD you have is already busted what you need to do is to buy a new ODD.

This ahs to with speed of recording of the CD/DVD try reading CD/DVD burnt at a lower speed like 16x.

Most DVD writers has low maximum reading speed as compared to CD-ROMs.

You can try burning a CD on it and then reading it, if reads then it shows that other cd were burnt at faster speed than it can read.

If it read lower speed CDs then you can just add an additional DVD/CD-ROM just to read faster speed disks.

Drive wont recognize any media


This is usually caused by dirty drive lens, too scratched CDs or CD burnt at faster speed than your ROM can read. (I am assuming that your pc detect the CD drive and has no hardware conflict with it).

Try reading an unscratched prerecorded (original CD), if it does not read this as well then your lens are dirty, try using a CD lens cleaner if these dont work then you need to open your ROM and use a highly volatile organic lens cleaner chemical.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
