CD-ROM not detecting any CD's

Q: CD-ROM not detecting any CD's

A few weeks ago my CD ROM just stopped detecting any CD's.

I tried removing it from the system, reinstalling it, reinstalling drivers, checking for conflicts but nothing works.

Any CD ROM I place in the system doesnt work.

Please tell me how I can fix this problem

Preferred Solution: CD-ROM not detecting any CD's

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

First thing: Is windows detecting it? Does it show up in My Computer??

Second: Have you tried using a cd cleaner??

It may be also the drive has gone bad. It does happen.

I am having trouble with my windows installation after attempting to install windows 10 a second time on the same machine, but different partition.
I have used a bootable USB device with the windows 10 installation (created with the same machine and the same settings for OS).
After pressing F12 and selecting the USB as the boot device, i started the installation process and got to the stage where you select which drive / partition to install windows. But the list only contained the USB device i used to start the installation process, and the SSD did not appear when tried to refresh / reload drives (or unchecked the "hide incompatible drives" checkbox). 
After canceling the installation process, i was met with the following message when rebooting windows:
"Your PC/Device needs to be repaired.
The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.
File: \BCD
Error code: 0x0000034
You'll need to use recovery tools. If you dont have..."

Before the error occured:
I have tried many different things BEFORE i got to the step above where I was able to start the USB stick and consequently ended up with the error.
However when the error occured the BIOS was reset to factory settings and i was able to log in to windows (and listen to spotify for an hour or so) before i tried the install that gave the error:

Hey there,

I recently installed a 4GB DDR2 800Mhz and under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System i can see that installed memory 4.0GB (2.94 usable) so i have 1 GB of ram missing !


A:W7 64 bit only detecting 3GB out of 4GB

I had the same exact problem. It is a motherboard limitation. You need to go into your BIOS and enable "Memory Remapping". If I remember correctly, it's in the Northbridge settings.

Let me tell you a bit about the bg of my problem,i started my pc with 2 HD one with windows xp <c:> and the other was a backup <d:>,I wanted to try windows 64 bit so i bought another HD and installed it as <e:> after the i installed the trial of 64 i started to get probs with my boot.ini so i uninstalled it with the intention to install S.u.S.e linux but after i uninstalled it i couldn't access my <c:> with XP because it came up with a ntldr error so i installed windows XP on <e:> where 64 bit use to be and repaired my original xp from there.But i found out for some reason the disk names changed and my backup became <c:> my original xp became <e:> and my new xp became <d:>.

I didn't think it was anything serious so i uninstalled the new xp and installed s.u.s.e and told it to install on <d:> where my new xp was but it installed it on <e:> where my original xp was ,i'm guessing it was because of the mix up of all the names and stuff but now i lost my original xp and all its content & when I try to start the original xp (because it still comes up with the boot list) it says hal.dll is missing.

I tried starting s.u.s.e and it asks me for a password but when i enter it it comes up incorrect and when i try it on safemode it asks me for a username that it randomly selected when i was installing it and cannot remember what it was.

Hey everyone, When i go to sytemn information it says 261,616 kb ram. IS ThIS correct???!? What is this problem? this started happening after my other problem please look at this other thread

I am currently running another psu that is 230W but it hasnt had the problem yet like my other one did

That is correct. 261,616kb divided by 1024KB(the number of KB`s in 1MB) = 256MB of ram.

Hey guys,

I have a really weird problem where the CD-Rom on my laptop is not detecting CDs when i insert them.

I put the CD into the CD-Rom and i hear it spinning for a minute or so, then it stops. When i go to My Computer and try to open the CD by double clicking the drive, it just opens a blank drive. I have tried multiple types of CDs: games, music, and movie CDs all have the same problem. I know that the CD-Rom itself is not the problem because i had the company, Acer, send me a brand new CD-Rom and the problem persists.

I have tried reinstalling all of the drivers, multiple times with no success.

This has been an ongoing problem for weeks now, and is frustrating because i can not play games, listen to cds, or even watch dvds so if anyone can help, i would greatly appreciate it.

A:CD-Rom not detecting CDs

If you right click on the Drive letter and choose properties and click on the AutoPlay tab is the radio button 'prompt me each time for an action' selected?

I'll continue to research this, sounds like something wierd with your OS, guessing Windows here.


EDIT: Something just popped in my head. When you go into that area, check to see if your media (music files - .mp3, etc.) are associated with BlankCD in the windows.

You can check this another way. Open up My Computer and select Tools -> Folder Options. Scroll through the extensions list (.mp3, .avi, etc.) and see if for some reason thy are associated with BlackCD.

First of all hello to all @ Tech Support Guy Forums.

Basicaly I have a Sony VAIO (VGN-AR51M)

I had my laptop sent off for repair as my graphics card is a defect Nvidia chip and it had to be re-balled however you spell it. I now have the laptop back and everything is working absolutely fine.. But! I noticed when I checked in task manager & also the BIOS my laptop was only detecting 1GB of ram in total.. It detected the whole 3GB before just fine.. So i tried a couple of things out..

I took out the 1GB stick of RAM and left the 2GB stick in and it detected the 2GB just fine. I then did the same method with just the 1GB stick left inside and it only detected the 1GB.. (I tried doing both the sticks in each slots each time to check one of the RAM slots wasn't faulty)

The problem I'm having is that when both the sticks of ram (2GB & 1GB) are in the laptop it only detects 1GB of ram.. I have been racking my brains for the past 2 hours wondering how the hell this is possible but it sure as hell is..

So my question to you guys.. How do I fix it?

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, and I've been running on 4 GB RAM for a while.

Today I bought four RAM sticks, 2GB each, and installed it in my desktop. but Windows only saw 4 GB of RAM. So I removed two of them, but now Windows only sees 2 GB of RAM!

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R . And I've installed the sticks on the yellow and red slots as you can see below:

And here are my RAM specs just in case:

Old RAM sticks: DDR2 5-5-5-18 @ 1.80v, 800MHz

New RAM sticks: DDR2 5-5-5 @ 2.20v, 1066MHz

I'm no hardware guy, so if anyone can make sense of this, I'd really appreciate it. And I've missed mentioning anything important, please let me know.

Hey guys.

I'm getting a DISK BOOT ERROR INSERT SYSTEM DISK message after switching a new power supply and CD-ROM drive into my old computer. I'm attempting to repair or reinstall Windows, but it's not reading my HDD as existing. I've tried switching IDE cables and changing things around in the BIOS, but to no avail. I know the HDD is fine because I tested it in another box, but whatever I do, the HDD won't read. Any suggestions?

I just bought a WD Caviar 80GB 8mb cache HD for my Dell Dimension 4100. I want to have this hard drive set as the slave for my computer; however, it is not being detecting. I connected everything properly with the jumper settings set correctly and it still does not detect.

One wierd thing is, if I set the WD hard drive as the master, it boots directly to a screen saying "insert a disk to A: to boot" or something like that. (although, I realize the HD has nothing on it and has not been formatted), the wierd thing is that it boots directly to this screen and seems to skip loading anything else on the system like the memory, floppy, etc.

Any ideas on what could be the problem here?

A:2nd HD not detecting

Read other 11 answers

Hey Guys,

I have a PC with a 1 TB Sata HDD. I had an old 320gb IDE HDD that I thought I may as well use, So I opened the case plugged in the hdd and while the case was open turned on the pc to test and everything was fine, the hdd was detected and I was able to access it.
Put back on the cover turned on the pc and got suck at start up trying to find the IDE drive. Re opened the case checked cables and tried again...all good!

Now I left the PC for a while and now came back to it, once again I got stuck at the start up while the PC tries to detect any IDE drives. Only way I am able to get to windows is to press F12 to go to startup and select my Sata drive that has windows installed.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?
I didnt touch any of the pins on the IDE drive so I beleive its set to master. I am also running Windows 7.

A:Detecting second IDE HDD

Is it the only drive on the IDE cable or is there another drive connected to the same IDE cable? Also is the cable 40 wire or 80 wire? Needs to be 80 wire with the blue end connected to the motherboard and the black end connected to he master drive. Also check the jumper of the drive and verify that it is set to Master, you can also try the Cable Select/CS jumper position.

i recently uninstalled web n walk usb device from my computer.
and when i tried to restore it wont dectect it.
i have tried various methods, but it does not seem to be anywhere.
the device is working i have checked it on another computer.
i have a feeling i may have removed the usb mass storage device by mistake.
any idea

A:detecting a new device

Check the USB device section in Device Manager and see if any of the entries there have a red "x" or a yellow "!" mark next to them. I suspect they will probably show as alright. To update your USB connections right click on each entry in the USB section and select "Uninstall" (answer yes or okay to the prompt that comes up). Once they are all gone close device manager and reboot. Windows will reinstall them for you. Let us know if that gets it going.

I was told that "NetStat" along with a number of other security apps might work towards detecting any security issues I might be developing.

I've used NetStat few times and would appreciate someone helping me to understand why there are occasionally a ton of TCP numbers associated with a download and other times just one or two- does this mean someone is taking a ride on my connection?

A:The value of using NetStat and what is it detecting?

Dont no anything about netstat but if you want security for your pc I would get zonealarm for my firewall and AVG for my anti virus. Both have free and pro versions, I use the free versions and have no prob;s. You also need to scan for spyware every now and then. Zonealarm can give you logs of scans at your pc, this is normal it happens all the time, but the firewall stops them.

OK, I tried out an Anti-Virus test Here (http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_info/work/) to see how well I am being protected. I had Avast running. And, it didn't detect anything when I downloaded and opened the files. I shut that down and started up AVG and it didn't detect anything either when I opened the files. Now, when I right click and manually scan the files using the different programs, they work and detect the virus. I also have ZoneAlarm's free firewall running, if that matters. Though I shut that down too and tried. The resident scanners for both programs were on when I tested. Shouldn't it be detected as soon as the file runs or is downloaded?...

Most AV software flags this program as a threat, there are only 3 AV companies that works with this software. This is not malware, and the usual malware removal tactics will not work. Why you would want to install Lojack for Laptops on a desktop baffles me.
Uninstalling it from Programs and Features does not uninstall it from the Windows Registry. Right click a blank space on the Task Bar and start the Task Manager. go to the Processes tab and end the process for RPCNETP.exe or RPCNET if it is running.
Go to Start/Search and type Regedit and press enter. Go to File\Export and backup your registry. Now go to Edit and Find. In the Find What box type RPCNETP and press Find Next. It will stop on a key, press the Del key on the keyboard, press Enter to acknowledge the deletion then press F3 to continue searching the Registry. Do the last 3 steps until you see the message Finished searching the Registry. Go to C:\Windows\System32 and look for RPCNETP.exe. if it is still there, you can now right click and Delete it. Then restart.

I went to burn a DVD yesterday, and I was quite frustrated to find that every time I clicked the option to start the burn, an error popped up saying that there was no CD recordable drives detected. Now I tried Microsoft's tutorial on setting the registry files to properly connect my device ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316529/EN-US/) , but the files they started to talk about in steps 6 and beyond, weren't showing up in mine.

I have a brand new Toshiba laptop with MCE 2005, and the driver it came with for the writing/reading capabilities is a Matshita UJ-8 driver, and is supposedly capable of reading, writing, and formatting discs of all types.

Hi all,

I have a problem on my hands unfortunately..

I have myself a Lenovo h50-50 and it is listed under my system specs. I went to turn on my PC after replacing my hard drive in it, and no screen whatsoever upon boot. The monitor does not turn on at all. I noticed that my led keyboard and everything else lit up fine and I could tell the PC booted because it took a while of holding my power button to turn it off.

What I've tried:

-put in another gpu
-reseat the camos battery
-change power supply unit
-unplug hard drives

I don't know what's going on because I remove my gpu and the PC boots with the screen lighting up. Everything is normal except for the gpu when I put it in my tower.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I will gladly mark this as solved if it is fixed.

Did you install the motherboard chipset drivers after installing XP? They should be available from the computer or motherboard manufacturer websites.

IDE drive is connected to the blue master the CD ROM is connected to the 2nd IDE on the motherboard the IDE Hard drive is set for cable select the CD ROM is set for master and the SATA drive was in SATA1 of the motherboard. Unable to find anything in the BIOS settings that say anything about SATA have tried both F1 and F11 for BIOS settings. Have tried different variations of IDE hard drive and CD ROM settings ie..cable select, Slave, master and such no luck detecting SATA Hard drive

Have checked HP website there doesnt appear to be any new BIOS upgrades

Title says the basics.

My 2nd monitor just won't be detected by my PC. It was working on Tuesday of this week, then didn't upon starting it Wednesday. I know all the cables and ports are working as I've tested them every other way I can.

Any help would be appreciated.
