DVD drive not recognizing cd or dvd
  

Hi,

Ruining windows xp here , my DVD drive is not detecting cd's in . The drives show in my computer, device manager, and in the bios. I've reinstalled drives. Driver are tested on another PC. I have ran AVG, and found no issues. Please any help for me?

Thanks.

Boot into SAFE MODE and real DOS and try to access dvd media.

First test to do: get a bootable CD (Knoppix, Bart PE, Windows CD) and try booting your system from that. If that fails, then probably the CD unit has gone bad.

Re: DVD drive not recognizing cd or dvd

I had exactly the same problem last week after 'installing' and external USB DVD writer. It worked first time but after a re-boot, could not see any CD/DVD drives. The only way I could fix it was to do a system restore to a point before I installed the external unit. Sorry its not an answer to the problem, but it got me out of it...

Re: DVD drive not recognizing cd or dvd

I have the solution. This happened to me and i called a dell support guy and he fixed it!!! This is what you do...

Start the Run Command Prompt
  • Start the Run Command Prompt
  • Type in "regedit" without the parrenthesis then click ok

  • Go to

  • Quote:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
  • Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

  • The whole thing looks like this:
    Quote:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


Then delete the upper and lower filters.... Restart tour computer. Hope this helps
