Original title: drive don't read do not disc__ game


Hi Trynn23,

·        This only happens with the games disc?

·        This happens with any particular game disc or all the discs?

·        You did changes to the computer before this problem started?

·        You receive an error message when you access the drive?

However, you can use the convenience store open playing and burning CDs, DVDs and Blu - ray discs built in Windows 7 and check to see if this can help you trouble reading disc number.

  • My hard drive is not even read the disc (Dragon Age: Origins)

    Today I bought a new video game for PC (Dragon Age: Origins).
    After inserting the disc, I thought I could hear the drive reading the disc, but it kept stopping.

    This ended up in my computer not give me an error message saying that there is problem... it's almost as if he thinks that I have never inserted the disc.

    So I tried to run another game disc, and he managed to read the disc.

    Please help :(

    the required for the game is the following:

    OS: Windows XP (SP3) or Windows nice (SP1) or Windows 7
    Processor: Processor Intel Core 2 SINGLE 1.6 GHz or equivalent AMD Athlon 64 2/0 GHz processor or equivalent
    RAM: 1 GB (1.5 GB Vista and Windows 7)
    Disc drive: DVD ROM required
    Hard drive: 20 GB of disk space

    and I guess that video and sound are not the problem here.

    I'm not a 'computer' wiz or anything either, but after reading the label of my system, it seems that the requirements very well.
    they are here:

    OS: Windows Vista 64 - bit family Premium SP1
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad-Core
    RAM: 4 GB DDR2
    Disk drive: Super multiformat DVD + RW DL with Labelflash
    HDD: 750 GB

    ... As you can see, taking me the time to post all this place really shows how frustrated I am... so please Helo me ASAP :(

    It is possible that you have a bad DVD drive.  Try it in another computer (a friend or relative) and if it didn't work for them either, you may have to contact the company for a replacement drive.  If it works on their computer and not yours, you may need an update of the firmware of your DVD player to make it compatible with the disc.  It is a rare event, but can happen.  You will need to go to the website where you made your computer and download the update of the firmware if available.

  • My DVD drive does not recognize DVD game discs.

    My NEC ND-4550-reader DVD - RW does not recognize DVD game discs.
    He has no problem reading movie DVDs and music CDs or access data CD and DVD burnt with data on them.
    I removed and let XP Reinstall the device and high-low filters removed the registry etc nothing works.
    I made a copy of a DVD game on another PC and it is recognized and install my PC.
    All DVD discs work very well on the other PC.
    I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2.
    MS Fixit controls indicate no problems.
    This would be a matter of software protection?
    All tried game DVDs are official records and not copies.
    The NEC ND-4550 uses cdrom.sys as pilot.

    Finally, I replaced the drive for a new one (Pioneer DVR-S18L) and everything now works as it should.
    So I suspect that it's a hardware problem and not one that can be resolved by any of the Windows settings.

  • My hard drive has trouble reading some discs


    I have a Toshiba Satellite C655 6.1 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    I had problems with my disc drive will not read some game discs. Most of the games that no longer work, allowing to work perfectly. Now when I put in the drive, the drive makes weird noises as it tries to read the disc, but he can't. Some of the games will install very well, but then not play.

    Music and film discs usually work very well, however. It's just my computer games which have this problem and not even all of them. I had some extremely scratched work very well when a new brand will not.

    If anyone has an idea as to what is the problem please help.

    Thank you!

  • Satellite P855: CD/DVD drive does not read 3 "Disc Camcorder

    I have a new Toshiba Satellite P855 model but can not get the CD drive integrated read/recognize 3 "discs of my Sony's Handycam camcorder.

    My previous laptop Aspire straight bed (as did older laptops) and currently have to use the Acer to import video footage on a hard drive.

    If I connect directly the Sony camcorder to laptop Toshiba (via USB) it won't always recognize the drive if I put it back in there.

    The Toshiba uses the W8 while software on Acer and other models previous I was using Windows7, but I do not see how it would make a difference.

    Can someone tell me if it is possible to get my Toshiba to read the discs of my camcorder?

    My apologies if this topic has been previously covered - this is my 1st post on this Forum in question and I did a search on the topic before making this post, but nothing came.


    * PS.*, When I put a disc 3 "in the drive, he keeps trying to read (in the sound I hear) but quit eventually.

    * PS2: * can I have solved the problem - sometimes you just can't see the forest for the trees.
    It appears on the Toshiba (under Windows 8), the disc must be finalized before we can read - while on the other laptops (under Windows7), is not.

  • Hard drive on my computer has stopped reading all discs.

    Original title: cd driver problem

    We have windows vista, the hard drive works at all. We have tried to re install from windows thwe site, he says that we already had the best driver. What can we do?


    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.

    The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to

    Hardware devices not detected or not working - A Mr Fixit

    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
    the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" 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 that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive
    as there will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask specific keys involved as well as
    the parameters.

    DevManView - free - an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager, which displays all the
