DVD drive does not appear on the screen of the reader 'computer '.

I lost access to the DVD drive. It does not appear on the screen of the reader 'computer '.
It starts with a disc inserted, but stops after about 20 seconds without opening all files.
The DVD comes on when it starts first and then turns off after a few seconds.
I have re-installed the driver of Toshiba and still no access.

I think it all started when I installed a new WD 1 TB external hard drive which its virtual CD drive on the E: drive, which was used by the installation DVD player. I moved the external hard drive G: and drive E: letter has left vacant, but still does not work.

Any ideas how I can fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and

    ===============================

    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

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and

    Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive

  • The previous computer's internal drive does not appear on the current computer

    I have an old hard drive of my days of windows XP.  I plugged on my current computer about a year ago and I was able to access the drive.  Recently, I reformatted my C drive, and I am more able to access the external drive now from a previous computer.  Nothing happens at all.  It does not appear in the computer file.

    The first step you should take is to enter the BIOS Setup program and check if the disk is visible there.

  • My HP DVD/ROM does not appear in the device under my computer Manager or when I scan for readers.

    My HP DVD/ROM does not appear in the device under my computer Manager or when I scan for readers, most of the time.  Every now and then it will be visible and I can use it but 90% of the time it does not exist.  I tried the regedit fix, nothing.  I tried the program Microsoft Fix It, it tells me it cannot locate a DVD/ROM.  I removed, cleaned and reinserted my DVD/ROM drive, but no difference.  I tried everything, except the upgrade to Windows 7... who will be my last resort.

    Hello gargoyle28m,

    If your hardware is not detected to upgrade to Windows 7 is not a resolution. This issue may be caused if the DVD drive is faulty or connections loose on the mother board. You may need to check the connections. I suggest you check if the DVD drive works on another computer. You can contact the manufacturer of your computer to help you with this problem.

    Thank you

  • DVD player does not appear error - the driver may be corrupted or missing. Code 39, fix the driver installation fails, virtual drives don't work - same results if the material under tension

    Original title: drive does not appear, difficulty he pilot installation fails, virtual drives don't work - same results if the material under tension

    A few weeks ago, as my two DVD players (the two Samsung Lightscribe SH-S223Q of) disappeared after a repair installed, I did for the other problems (not sure if it was directly after installation because I don't notice it right away, but it was no doubt). In Device Manager, it gives the message:

    "Windows cannot load the driver for this hardware device. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) »

    I tried the Microsoft Fix It tool (Mats_Run.dvd.exe) that detects the problem and says "Install device driver" in a popup, but then he says "software device driver failed to installed. At the end it says under the issue, the "CD/DVD drive is not detected" and the status of Fix 'not set '. Note that, when I boot from another hard drive (with Vista 64 on it installed from the same DVD, just a new installation) disks appear very well. Also I can boot from the drive as well.

    I can't do a repair installation, since it must initiate Windows, and I can't load the disc. I tried to update my BIOS but that has no effect.

    Recently I actually moved this hard drive to another one, with another brand of hard drive and all the rest. Just like before, if I boot from another hard drive (this one with Windows 7), the drive unit-a Optiarc AD-7230 s - looks and works, and I can also boot from the drive at startup. But since the drive hard as I want to use, the drive does not appear. Fix it, etc. Device Manager gives the same messages as before.

    I tried virtual drives - Daemon Tools Lite and Virtual Clonedrive. When I try to add virtual devices to help, nothing happens. The new drive will be displayed in the Manager of devices, but with the same error Code 39 as the real drive.

    What are my options at this point? How can I get the drive to appear or to fix my copy of Windows?

    I could solve this problem. I started in Ubuntu and deleted the existing cdrom.sys, cdrom.inf etc. files (as in Windows, they were protected and I couldn't delete them), then I copied the files from another installation of Vista I had on another hard drive. After having done that, I updated the drivers in device, disabled/enabled readers and readers management that presented themselves.

  • My CD/DVD drive will not appear in the Device Manager, but present in the BIOS.

    DevCon didn't find it. It will not open even if I don't get to Device Manager and check for changes to the system. I deleted the registry entries upper and lower limit. Any other suggestions? For additional emphasis, he does not show even in the Manager of devices so I cannot restore or reinstall the drivers from there. It might also help that I use Vista Home Premium on a Compaq Presario F755us.

    Hello

    (1) does the BIOS see the main hard disk drive or a secondary hard drive?

    (2) remember to make changes to the computer before the show?

    You know may not be not that most systems are set to show only the splash screen. If you go into the BIOS Setup, it should show the disks that have been detected on two primary and secondary IDE channels.

    Note: the basic procedure to change the setting of the disk controller is to restart your computer and enter the system BIOS. The most common method is to press F2 to enter Setup, (another PC may use a different key). On the BIOS screen, find the setting that offers the AHCI, ATA or IDE and RAID. If the parameter is set to AHCI, change the setting to ATA. Restart the PC on the Windows installation disc

    Warning: Incorrect settings in the system BIOS can cause your PC function incorrectly. If you are not familiar with the configuration of the BIOS of the system, you must contact the PC manufacturer for assistance.

    You do not add a printer driver for printers and Scanners.  You add the printer itself.

    The Epson Artisan 50 is not a printer capable of AirPrint, as shown here:

    (I have an Epson taking is an AirPrint printer, and it works very well with OS X 10.11.5.)
