Cannot recognize DVD/CD ROM drives code

Asked By 210 points N/A Posted on -

My notebook has a built-in DVD/CD ROM. I owned this for 3 years from now.

One day as I inserted a cd installer to do an installation process, the cd won’t work. I inserted another one which is a DVD it failed to load up. Upon checking the Device Manager to check the DVD/CD ROM drives status a warning sign indicates in the code

How could that be done wherein my notebook been using for 3 years and I did not upgrade my computer because I’m contented with Windows XP OS.

How could that be? Please help me find ways to fix this problem.

Thanks All.

Hi Steffen Rose,

More likely if you have not updated your drivers, this will make your drivers more likely to encounter errors when you use a CD/DVD that requires an updated driver.

You can try to update the driver by right-clicking on the DVD/CD ROM driver in the Device Manager which contains the status warning and select the option to update the driver. A window will appear on whether you want to update it by downloading through the internet or by searching for the installer on your computer. Choose the best option for you and wait for it finish. You can now try to check if it still has a warning sign in the Device Manager.

Here is a simple solution for your problem. What you can do is this that of to the device manager which you have shown in your picture and select the same DVD name as HT-DL ……….  And here right click on it and here click on disable when you done the device will be disable now again to enable it repeat the steps the enable it. Make sure this tag is available in your CD/DVD properties. Now if the problem is removed and you DVD is working fine then best of luck other wise see the second problem.

Now in this case you have to check the hardware of the DVD it is the cable which is connecting the DVD room with your Motherboard. See this cable is not damaged you can see the blinking light of your DVD for this reason also to check power of the DVD.

I am sure this will solve your problem. You can reinstall the drivers of your DVD/CD to make it available these are available on NET as well as your DVD/CD package may contain it within a CD which comes with new DVD/CD.
