My laptop has stopped recognizing my DVD player/recorder. It says my drivers are up to date and I can find no other way to get it to work, play or record.
were you able to fix your DVD player and recorder? What was the problem?
Or that round thing that read your dvd is damaged
Hello, If your drivers are up to date, the easiest way to make your computer recognize your drive/drives is by deleting the drives entry in the Device Manager. To do so, follow the next steps:
If using XP:
-- click on start key + Pause/Break at same time
-- on menu select Hardware
-- click on Device Manager
-- find DVD/CD drives and expand it
-- highlight the entry for your DVD/CD drive
-- right click on it and select uninstall
-- restart computer
-- windows will install the entry for you
-- try your drive
if Using Windows 7 you will need to open device manager with administrator account:
-- click on start key + Pause/Break key
-- on left hand box, click on device manager
-- follow the same steps as above
This should work....unless your drive is dead
1. Click Start
2. Right Click My computer, and click manage
3. Click Storage, and assign a letter to your disk drive
or uninstal the driver from DreviceManager and reboot then let windows to reinstal a new one.
