Looked in the Device Manager and no exclamation on HL-DT-ST DVD + - RW GHSON ATA DEVICE

does this mean that the driver is corrupted? have you tried updating the driver but message says that the driver is the latest version.

I can't play CD at all.this happened for a long time and is very frustrating. Have a Dell p.c.

  • Satellite A200: DVD/CD player does not work

    Excuse me
    I bought toshiba A200.
    After two weeks my DVD/CD drive does not work.
    So I deleted the a±ts driver and then I do not want to install the driver.
    Please help about this.


    Don't be angry with me, but your ad is not a little clearer!

    However, the CD/DVD drive uses and supports the common drivers Windows Vista (or XP)!
    You n t need any special drivers to recognize the STRANGE

    In your case I would recommend going to the Device Manager and remove (uninstall) the CD/DVD drive.
    After this procedure, restart the laptop.
    The Vista operating system should recognize the new device and must be reinstalled the drivers automatically

  • DVD/CD player does not work for a Satellite Pro C870 1CQ

    Hello world

    My name is Stephanie and this is all the info from my laptop. (parts included)

    I can't read any CD/DVD with my laptop.

    I can open the driver, insert a CD or a DVD. I can close the driver. It begins to spin, as follows. (That's a lot of noise as well) After a while it stops right turn.

    Nothing happens. Even when I look in the menu of my computer, the driver is not even mentioned there.

    I have 8.1 Windows on my computer. I already checked the FAQ, but everything I could find that might be useful is applied to Windows XP

    Can someone help me with this?

    Thank you!

    Kind regards


    Hi Stephanie

    It is not easy to say what the problem is here. Is your defective optical drive or there is a problem with the lens. Try to clean it. I did it using liquid and cotton swabs for screens LCD cleaning.

    By the way: is the optical disc drive recognized properly in Windows Explorer or the Device Manager?

  • DVD/cd player does not work

    I have a dell inspiron 531 Telechareger and the cd/dvd drive does not work. I did the test issue of mircosoft and he said that one or more drivers were missing or corrupt and that it has been disabled in Device Manager. I checked Device Manager and it is activated. Don't know what to do all the rest. Any help?


    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
    contacts data with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are some registry
    entries that do not fix the resolution of problems and those who "could" be the cause.

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and the
    correct registry entries for your car.

    Here are the keys in my opinion, are those in question - for the CD/DVD drive of course subkeys as
    There will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask involved specific keys as well as the

    Hi, well do not have the Shockwave Flash Plugin is the problem and I think that's the problem with Ron too. The Flash Player files can be installed, but the plugin is missing. Why it is that I don't know, it is installed with the installation of the PS program.

    I asked Ron to test also. When you have tested, there a link or a message after you informing him that he was missing the plugin click on Install, it?

    If Yes, go back and click on it.

    Make sure that your WMP is the 32-bit default (even for W7 64-bit) version. It has built more than 64-bit codecs.

    Works out of the box for me.
    You can always install a codec package - Klite for example.

    I posted this question 25 and have not yet received response. Because of this problem of crash, I can't do anything on my computer apart from solitaire game and hang out Adobe communities looking for an answer. I found several issues like mine (Mac, firefox, flash player constantly crashing) who have no answers either, and I'm getting upset. I've been floating around Mozilla and Apple Help sections, and there is no answer there either. How can I get an answer? Or is there just no fix for this problem and Flash player does not work on mac more? Y at - it another program that I can use instead of Flash player? I like a lot to an answer, the answer, or anything cause I've stuck here until then. Thank you for you time.

    Adobe Flash Player


    Since last week, Adobe Flash Player did not work on my computer at all. I can't watch videos and a webpage using Flash for accidents of ads.  I tried to use Adblock, thinking at first that the ads were the problem because they froze my computer in the past. There is nothing, so I went through the guide for Flash on the Mozilla Web site problems.  I removed all plugins, disabled acceleration hardware and even uninstalled Firefox and Flash player, then the reinstalled again. Still, it crashes and I don't know what to do anymore.   Is there something that can be done? Thank you for your time.
