    Windows XP not recognizing the inserted CD/DVD into DVD ROM.

    I have inserted a DVD into the DVD ROM of my Windows XP machine, after the DVD is inserted nothing comes on the screen, earlier I used to get the window with a list of options like Open Contents, Copy DVD, etc,. but now nothing is shown. When I open the disc drive in windows explorer, it says insert a disc.

    Hello,


    You should first check the CD/DVD to find out wheather the CD/DVD is ok and there is no mark on it.
    If the CD/DVD is fine then it's time to check the DVD drive of your PC. You should remove the DVD drive
    from the PC and clean the dustin it. Now, insert the DVD drive with all the cables and turn on your PC. Now,
    insert a CD/DVD to the drive and wait. If the DVD drive read the CD/DVD then you will see auto run. Other wise
    you should take your DVD drive to a service centre.

    Bye,

    What has happend to your system that it has lost its device driver for the DVD/CD drive somehow.Installing the driver can solve the problem for sure, provided the Optical Drive is not physically damaged.First uninstall the existing driver from the system,click Start--Control Panel--Syatem And Maintanance--System--Hardware--Device Manager--Dvd/Cd Rom--devices--Uninstall.Exit and windows will automatically assign another driver for the decice and solve the issue.

    Hi friend,

    The problems might be the following:-

    1. Either your DVD ROM might not be working.

    2. Or the connection might be lost inside your cpu.

    3. Or your DVD ROM drivers might be crashed.

    To overcome the above issues do the following:-

    1. Check whether you see the light glowing when you insert a disk, if light glows then your DVD ROM is working.

    2. If you dont see any light then check for the connection inside your CPU.

    3. Try re-installing the DVD ROM Drivers.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    My dear friend if you are trying to load a DVD on your computer and it is not picking it up then it clearly means two things.One is that either the optical reader of your computer has been damaged.And the other thing is that maybe the DVD is empty or to much scratched for your system to recognize it.Now here is what you should do,

    1.First try to insert any other disk in your computer and see if that works. Because if this doesn't work still then it means that the optical reader is surely damaged and you are gonna have to repair that thing.

    2.If the other disc works fine on your computer then it clearly means that the DVD that you are trying to play is damaged and you should buy a new DVD for that purpose.

    Good luck!!!

    Hi, Dear friend

    Generally the Above error Occurs whenever the Drivers of CD/DVD drive Crashed ....

    So, First of all try to Restore it ... to check if it helps........and if it not Helps.... simply Re-install the drivers to Get the Solution

    and for the Restoring of Drivers try to follow these steps:

    press, Windows key+R and type regedit and click OK and now click YES if prompted

    and now Go this address HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    then at the right pane choose Upper Filters ... ... and now go to Edit menu from the top of the Window .....and click on Delete option

    and again choose Lower Filters ... and delete it

    after that Close the Registry Editor .....and Restart the PC

    after that Try again ... and if you are unable to solve the issue cases.... re-install the Drivers

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
