  • Why?

    Sometimes my PC does not find the disc in the D drive. This is annoying, because I sometimes can't install/play games etc.

    Why is this happening? Is my PC knackered or something?

    Is this your cd drive you are talking about?

    If so get one of those lense cleaning discs and give your lens a quick clean.

      Yep, the CD drive

      Thanks, I'll give it a try.

        I wouldn't recommend those lens cleaners... get some compressed air instead.

          I actually have some of that, I use it to clean the keyboard etc.

            Hiz!

            I have this same problem with my DVD player.

            It plays some DVDS fine all the time, but not others. Others sometimes can get to play, but then it plays them fine if it does. Now though I had no luck with the latest CD, but right after that, it plays another CD fine, even though that one is dirtier and more scratched.

            It didn't always do this.

            When a cd doesnt work, it just says that no cd is in the drive.

            Thanks for any help!

              It it's a plain CD-ROM drive, then take it out of your PC, drive down a highway and chunk it out of your window and buy a new one.





              Ok, don't litter. If it's a CD-RW, then ignore this post, as I am a moron.

                    I too had this problem with some of the latest games, i found it was due to safe disc protection.

                    The only was to play them was with the no-cd programs.

                      My problem is worst, windows sees the CDrom as a removable hdd
                      ask me to format it upon inserting a CD
                      I can still burn CDr with nero though
