No PC state, make HP model, LT or Desktop.
no OS stated windows, what XP>? XP loves to hate CDs
it is INFAMOUS for that... and worse if upgraded the drive.
id bet this,
1: running sticking XP, and XP is a dead product at MS. and HP.
2: someone installed MS disks to it and lost the HP driver.
The HP drivers must be installed, for the cam to work
one USB driver and the correct camera driver to match you unstated OD.
The DVD drive needs this.
XP SP3, service pack 3 adds more drives.
then needs the (if XP ) patch to the registry called filter hack for XP DVD)

why even post lacking full model of HP and OS it runs
click start, click control panel click system.
bingo the OS name and version is there, if 64bit that too matters big time.

SOURCE: laptop won't boot from external CD drive yet internal one is unresponsive

if you want to boot a cd e.g windows xp os disk then you have to go to the bios by pressing del or f2 or f8 ot f10 depending on the motherboard you use. try to find boot option -> boot priority or first boot device.if you find boot priority then select cdrom as first priority . if you find first boot option then also select cd rom. sometime if your disk is not bootable then it won't boot.

SOURCE: cd/dvd rom not working on hp laptop

Is the Drive detected in the BIOS? Can you boot from your Windows or any bootable disc? If so try this solution:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

SOURCE: My cd rom drive will not recognize any cds or

When I had my problem, no cd was recognized, music or data. But when I paced a dvd movie in there, and started up my PowerDVD, it would play just fine. I ended up replacing the drive. In fact, I got an upgrade because the first one was CDRW/DVD-ROM, and now its a DVD burner. 86 bucks including shipping.

SOURCE: cannot open cd-rom drive!

The thing about cd/dvd drives in general is that they die and thats the case here even if you deleted anything of the operating system its self would notice that the cd drive was missing the driver and ask you about it since you havent stated that its safe to say that the drive is dead

SOURCE: CD/DVD rom drive not working

Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer aspire 5740 DVD not recognized


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

I have an Acer Aspire 5332 and the CD-Rom/DVD Drive (Optiarc DVD RW AD-7580S ATA Device) is not working properly...every time I put a disk of any kind (i.e CD/DVD/Game) it doesnt recognize it and load


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


hope this helps you

Hi,
For that problem, Try first replace that internal DVD-rom drive other good internal DVD-rom drive. if not Also Detected or recognize.
Try this second solution. insert external USB type DVD-ROM. if not recognize also, Your operating system Have internal software device data corrupted. You need to reinstall operating System like windows xp, windows 7 (OS) etc.. to fix data Corrupted of operating system device for hardware software.

That is a Vista problem with ACER. Delete the reference in device manager and restart and let the comp reco0gnize and reinstall ...just follow the screen instructions.
