I cant get the cd drive on my computer to recognize anything. It doesnt auto play any cd's. When I do a search on that drive it says no files are found. The light on the drive just keeps flashing. Any ideas ?

I am by no means a computer guru, but right click on my computer, and goto device manager. Check and see if there is a yellow exclamation point by your cd drive.

heres a couple things you can do, hopefully this helps if not theres a few other things to do.

(print this out so you can have it when the computer os off line.


1. do a hard boot.
2. then while windows is loaded turn off the switch on the back of the tower, when you restart..let it check out its own logs from you shutting it down NOT the right way.

3. if you already checked into....click me computer ICON then right click your ROM player..check for faults..if nothing go then do a right click on my computer ICON hit the devise manager tab...check each CHECKED box..it open up and lets you know if it is a DRIVER fault. if you see nothing again and this is ALL doing nothing...then do this

click on the START botton lower left....HIT RUN

type in MSCONFIG

then you see the system config utility (becarefull in here)

(dont mess arounfd with the first tab (general)


click the CINGFIG tag on top...make sure all boxs are checked\

NEXT tab.,.AUTO EXEC. make sure all boxs are checked

NEXT tab system INI , open each section by hitting the + sign...and make sure all boxs are checked.


NOW....do the sane fir the next tab...?WIN INI


that last tab is multi optional...most are STARTUP runs and drivers...you dont even need...they slow down system resorces...FOR RIGHT now ..check them all...if you have messed with them in the past...then you know already what you dont need started up...)alsmost all of them...lol)

after all feilds are checked...RESTART the computer.


also try this feild...hit the START botton on the lower left of the screen, hit accesories...then pick system tools and then pic system info...there you will most likely see if there is a driver problem at fault..if it deos click on it and run a system check.


hopefully that should do it.
if not...sounds like a driver fault...in which your going to have to BACK UP ALL YOUR FILES....hopefully you got a zip disk...save everything..even your porn pics...lol
and do a TOTAL RESTORE on your computer..this will put it back to the way you brought it home and first pluged it in.

be warned all shit that you put in the computer already (the software for the printer, the zip disk the scanner all that crap has to be done again...also make sure you got your WINDOWS book handy...it wants that SERIAL# entered before it comes back on..so make sure you got that book..its small and blue..and the numbers on the back.,..hope this help..

and no i didnt spell check

is it a drive that came with the computer or did you install a new one?

I don't see how a driver problem would cause to do a restore? just reinstall the burner or cd-rom driver.

right click network neighborhood and go to propereties. find the device manager and find the drive that's the problem, click on it and than click on reinstall driver.

try to look at the manufacture's website for updated drivers to download.

i am not a pro here, but net working has nothing to do with a cd rom fault?...i even check..there is no listings for rom drives...just intel networking lines etc,

the only thing i can think of there is a fault somewhere either in the line or the driver that supports it?


mike...does the cd drive open up?


the blinking could be a simple problem...like its jammed...or its pending a order to which it cant complete cause...the steps (the driver info) needs to be reloaded. something bugged out there.


if the drive wont open...theres alittle pin spot to stick a needle in and it will open, if it does already, try loading a cd and hit my computer and double click the cd rom drive to by pass the auto start and see if that maybe knocks it loose?
i am running out of my limited knowlage...the only other thing i can think of is maybe the port conection inside is alittle lose?
