my cd/dvd-rom will not recognise when i put cds in there - whether manufactured or
cd-rs... i click on d: and get message 'please insert disc...'

i also tried testing my disk out when it doesnt work in my cd-r drive and get same
 message - although i have never problems using cd-r when it comes to burning cds
using Nero ... touch wood...


do u think this is a windows related problem rather than hardware...

sometimes it works (about 1 out of 5 times - when i reboot after the 5th time !!!) and
when it works i hear the cd-rom making an active noise.. when it doesnt work.. you see the cd-rom light flashing but no noise..

i have checked all devices are ok in device manager, all is ok in bios. and on boot up
 both my cd-rom and cd-r are recognised....

CD/dvd-rom is set as secondary master
and cd-r is set as secondary slave

Win ME,athlon amd 1700 xp, 128 ram.

So you do have a D: drive and and E: drive, which are your cdroms. You are able to burn cd on the E: drive, but cannot read cds from the D: or E: drive. One thing worth trying to to boot into safe mode, then go in device manager under system in the control panel. Then click on the plus beside cdroms. Remove all of the cdroms from the list. Then reboot. Windows will redetect both of your drives, now try reading a cd. Let use know if this helps or not.

well i tried to remove dvd-rom but everytime i rebooted it showed it as there again in system devices, the only thing that changed was on the system info for the dvd-rom disconnect was ticked, so i unticked it again, so havent bothered with cd-r yet... anyway i am not sure what i have done but at the moment its working... but i cannot double click on dvd-rom - nothings happens the only way i can open disc is to right click on it the click play..... autoplay does not work.....
