    There may be a connection issue with the DVD drive in your computer.

    It is necessary to uninstall the DVD drive from the computer, to check the power cable and connector.

    Also it is necessary to check the data cable and connector, Removing and reinserting those connectors and later reinstalling the drive in the computer should solve the issue, provided all peripherals and the DVD drive is in good shape.

    If the drive is sensing but not working, try to uninstall tye windows device driver for the DVD drive, then download the latest and install in windows can solve the issue.

    Re: DVD in the Drive freezes in my Windows Vista System

    I tried the above mentioned steps and I doubt if it made any difference. The driver for the DVD drive is still the same after following the above steps.

    However, a few changes since I posted this message:

    1) I am connected to a DELL monitor via an HDMI cable.
    2) Win7 informed that there was an HDMI update from DELL which I installed.

    I also assumed that the HDMI cable itself was probably not the right version and I got a 1.3b spec cable. I assumed that these
    problems would have fixed the issue and until today, I managed to play DVD's a few times. Today, however, while watching
    video on the web browser, the computer suddenly hung and I had to force a hard reset. This is extremely frustrating with such
    a brand spanking new machine.

    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly check the power connection of your DVD drive is right or not.

    2.Then you also check that your DVD is working finely or not.

    3.you can check it by connecting your DVD to another computer.

    4.If there is no problem with the hardware then the problem is with the DVD drivers.

    5.So you go to the desktop make a right click on 'My Computer' and click on 'Manage'.

    6.Then you click on the option 'Disk Management' and open the properties 'DVD-CD\ROM Drivers'.

    7.And go to the 'drivers' tab and click on 'Update driver' to update it.

    8.Even your problem is not solved then your problem is the virus which affected your computer.

    That's it by doing as i said you problem will be solved.

    Have a nice day..............

    Hi, Dear friend

    There are many reasons involved behind this issue ... are

    It may cause by the Dust

    Power cable problems

    Device Driver issues ..........or any other hardware related issues

    So, first of all check whether the Drive light blinking or not ... when the you press EJECT button

    And if not there is a problem with the POWER CABLES ...in that case turn off the PC ..and check the Power cables and ..... get the solution

    Otherwise ... Repair or Re-install the drivers that is go to ...run and type devmgmt.msc and click OK

    then Expand DVD CD ROM DRIVES ...and choose your device and right click ON it .....and choose UNINSTALL button......and follow the screen instructions

    After that insert the DVD ROM Companion Disk ...and re-install the Drivers to check if it helps

    and Some times it may ......cause by the DVD drive Motors also.......that there are 2-motors are available for EJECTION ... whenever they are damaged cases also it behaves like that

    So, if you have any knowledge about the ..Hardware ..simply remove it and check them ....And remember that ...LENSES of the DRIVE are very sensitive ......So, if you have knowledge about the drive ....then check it otherwise ... try to cantact any service center and repair it

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
