CD/DVD drive works, but does not read the CD

Upgrade to Windows 7, last week. All right.  In the past days, have been ripping the CD for my MP3 player.  Tonight, the CD/DVD stopped reading media.  I can see the drive in Windows Explorer.  When I click on the drive icon in the WinExplorer, the drawer opens for loading; However, when I insert a CD and close the drawer, read access / the light blinks but nothing to indicate that the CD is actually read.  CD new no scratches.  Anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

If this is a brand new CD, the CD's may be defective or your disk may need an update of firmware to understand a new type of media.

The laser may be dirty or co - is told in passing is not.

  • DVD/CD rom drive reads CDs but does not read the DVD.

    My Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop has a DVD/CD rom drive.  It loads all the CD I want and them automatically opens on the D drive.  When I put in a DVD movie it will not play.  I open my computer, and then look at the D drive, and it does not even recognize that there is a DVD inside but it shows a screen of a CD that I put in there.  This tells me that it works and it has a green light on the side which shows.  Also, when I insert the DVD it makes sounds as it tries to recognize, but then it stops and does not appear.  Can anyone help?  I really appreciate it.  I'm not very savvy computer.  I know that some in this topic because I am a teacher and try to catch up with things, but I'm certainly no computer technology.  Thank you very much!  Let me know if I need to give more info.  I think the reader is Sony CRX835EK but I'm not 100% sure on this one here.

    4) go to the key of the string "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

  • DVD-ROM drive works, but does not appear in 'Computer' and discs can be played

    I totally messed up my DVD - ROM drive. After graduating the famous blue screen of death once yesterday and once today, I thought that my PC settings reset would fix the problem. Then, I pressed F2 when my computer starts and resets all settings. Unforunately, this is something serious to my DVD - ROM drive. Initially, it did not work, so I opened my computer and somehow got it works. But now, it does not detect the disks I insert in there. I get the message "no DVD - ROM drive found."

    Anyone know if it's fixable? I hope I don't have to take my computer somewhere for repair. Unforunately, I don't know the make or model of the hard drive. My the PC features that I think are important are listed below.

    I watch this thread, so if I'm on my PC I will be notified by email of responses.

    Characteristics of the computer:

    Model: Dell Dimension E520
    OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
    Video card: ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO

  • My laptop does not read the dvd, but another laptop computer bed. PL advise solution. Thank you

    My laptop is Pressario V2000. My laptop does not read the dvd, but another laptop reads the same dvd. PL is the solution. Thank you

    Try another DVD to verify that your laptop can read at least the other DVD.  If he can't play other DVD's then you need to replace the DVD - CD ROM drive supplied with your Pressario.

    Another thing you can try is to check fingerprints or scratches on the DVD, some DVD players are more sensitive than others.
