Dvd/cd Rom Drive Wont Open

I recently installed some software and then i tried to run the program it failed to work due to compatibility issues so i went to uninstall it and that failed so i just threw all of the files into the recycle bin and deleted them manually.

Now, my dvd/cd rom drive wont open and i have no idea why i have tried everything uninstalling the drivers/hitting the eject button/asking "my computer" to eject for me/everything i can possibly think of any one else have suggestions. Oh and i can't find the "emergency open" button i just recently got my computer 6 months ago so this shouldn't be happening and i'm very computer literate so any suggestions would be appreciated!

Empty Backup Folder On External Hard Drive

This is regarding windows 7 home premium. I recently discovered the files created on my external hard drive by windows automated backup utility are empty. The backup utility continues to apparently create backups: the external drive lights up to indicate activity when the "backup in progress" symbol appears in the notification area of the taskbar.control panel>system and security>backup and restore shows a backup size of 92. 24 gb and verifies the backup location as the external drive.

The external drive itself appears to be working fine: i can move other files, such as outlook backups, to the drive and verify their file size. There are two backup-related file folders on the external drive, one with the name of the computer and the other named windowsimagebackup, which was created about two minutes after the first. But both are empty.

Windows Dvd Maker Won't Recognize Dvd Burner

Windows dvd maker won't recognize a dvd burner when a internet usb drive is hooked up to computer, how do we fix this?

Dvd Maker Cannot Create The Dvd

I'm getting this like everyone else on a windows 7 64 bit. The dvd burner is turned on, working, etc. I have 251 gb of free space. The problem is that this error message is so worthless, i.e. No real specifics like "out of space" , "codec error", "invalid input file", "hey, i just don't like you"  . There is nothing to work with. The input is a home movie avi which plays just fine in windows media center. The "just die for no apparent reason" point seems to be 38% in windows media center and 17% in windows dvd maker and the blank disk is kicked out.

If nothing else microsoft ought to build a fix that at least dumps some useful error messages about the failed process so there's a direction to take. At least under dvd maker the status was "encoding" and it dies during that. Windows media center tells you nothing, but the vague error. Oh, yes i did try again after a fresh re-boot and am running nothing else. Same problem.

Folder Empty Backup And Restore

After recovering from a boot failure, after downloading a windows malware update, i made a new backup of all my documents using windows backup and restore wizard. Using the start button and then documents i browsed to the external drive holding the backup, found the backup folder, saw the list of document folders that matched the list on my main hard-drive but every folder i tried to open said "folder empty". The backup took 5 hours to complete and i received a screen saying backup successful, but where are the documents that were backed up?

Fixing Cd/dvd Drive

My cd drive has been missing for several weeks, and do not know exactly when it disappeared. I went through the deleting upper and lower filters as most places say, then rebooting, and it didn't help. I have created a new reg file and merged, and that brought the drives back, but they did not show that a cd was in. It has since disappeared again, and i do not have lowerfilters.

I have tried system restore, but i always get an error code because it "cannot access the file". I have updated the firmware from the dell website, and ran several different virus scans. Itunes and my computer say the drive is missing, but device manager says it is functioning correctly and completely updated. My dvd drive is there, it is only the cd drive. I am running windows 7, and have a dell inspiron 1750.

Also, i checked my brothers computer, who has the same set-up, and his registry files are all identical to mine, and his drive works just fine.

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images. I thought upgrading to windows 7 might resolve the 2 problems rpc sever is unavailable and the dvd drive not detected. I upgraded to ultimate as my computer is windows vista home basic. Its compaq. Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Cannot Detect Dvd/cd Drive

My averatec 4200 laptop was just upgraded to windows 7. The dvd/cd drive worked fine when i installed windows 7, but for some reason it is no longer visible, anywhere.

Device manager - nothing
My computer - nothing
Hardware & sound troubleshooter - no device detected

I have tried everything i can think of. The dvd player hasn't been removed physically and reinstalled. Also, when i put in a dvd the player spins, but nothing is detected.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.

Dvd Rom And Rw Drive Not Detected

I installed fresh copy (no upgrade) of windows 7 last night and after the installation finish, i notice both drives were missing from my computer.

Dell dimension 9200
Missing drives - pbds- dvd+-rw dh-16w1s and tsst corp dvd-rom ts-353b

Under device manager - they appear with an !Exclamation! Over them, there is no window 7 drivers  on the dell support website for my computer. I have attempted to do the firmware upgrade but tsdnwin reports drive not found. I have deleted the drives from devices manager and shutdown then disconnect and reconnect the cables and boot, and the problem is still here. I have try diagnostics built into windows 7 and it didn't work. Drives are showing up in my bios, while booting. Is there anything else i can try?

Dvd-rom Drive Vanished

I am running windows 7 on my toshiba satellite a205-s7464. It ran vista native, however, i had been running windows xp for the past six months as my vista install kept corrupting. I have had many hardware issues with this system. Just in december i had my hd-dvd drive replaced. It worked fine for awhile, however, it was spotty here and there where discs would get stuck, wouldn't read, wouldn't burn, etc.

I was trying to install a program today and mid-install my entire computer froze. After rebooting my cd was stuck in the drive. I used a safety pin to get it out. Now it only ejects with a safety pin. It doesn't read any discs. In the bios it doesn't show my optical drive as existing. It shows up in device manager, but not in administrative tools - computer management. It doesn't read. Doesn't spin. Doesn't eject. Doesn't attempt at all.

I did a system restore, did an edit in the registry suggested on a website i found, deleted and reinstalled the drive. In device manager, windows tells me that my drive exists, is functional, and is up to date. However, my drive doesn't show up anywhere else.

I can take it to bestbuy, of course, but i really need to keep this for class. I'm pretty tech savvy and willing to try to do stuff myself, but sometimes i need a pointer on how to do it.

Dvd Drive Stopped Working

I have had windows 7 premium home edition 64-bit on my computer for probably around 6 months now with no problems. Just this past week i went to put a cd in the cd/dvd drive and the drive wouldn't open. Now the computer says that it cannot find a cd/dvd drive plugged into the computer and to check and make sure that it is plugged in. After spending hours on the internet i couldn't find a solution. However, i did notice that when the computer powers on, the drive does work.

I can open the drive and the light blinks and all. About 5 seconds into the "windows starting" screen the drive will no longer light up and no longer open, almost like it was suddenly unplugged again. I used the microsoft fixit tool and it couldn't fix the problem. I also tried to go into regedit and delete the upperfilter value (there was no lowerfilter value that i could find) like i read on the internet. I restarted the computer and it still didn't work so i used the back up registry file that i made to restore the value.

I can't figure out what's wrong. As a side note i am not exceedingly advanced with computers. I know i did the regedit right by following step-by-step instructions but that doesn't make me by any means advanced at computing so please keep solutions on a step-by-step fashion if possible.

Boot Up From Usb Dvd Drive

I know it can be done, but my bios only has the option, apart from the 'obvious' ones, of booting from usb flash - is that the same as the external usb dvd drive? (Have to use external dvd drive as one in laptop defunct) if not, i will have to boot from a usb stick - have copied the instructions from http://www.Istartedsomething.com/20081104/tip-make-your-pdc-2008-usb-hard-drive-a-bootable-windows-7-install-disk/ to make my usb drive ready, but some sites say it has to be ntsc formatted, and also made bootable with the bootsect utility. Which is correct?
