Drive Ejecting All Inserted CD / DVD On Windows 7
I recently installed windows 7 on my dell xps m1530 laptop. Till yesterday, the dvd drive was working perfectly fine, but yesterday, it just suddenly started ejecting all the cd/dvd i inserted. I tried using Microsoft trouble shooting, and when I chose that I was having a problem in playing the dvd, it started scanning for errors, and i inserted a dvd during it, it started working. But when the program ended, it found no problems. After closing the program, I inserted another dvd, and the same problem. The dvd drive is TEAC DVD+-RW DVW28SLC. I have tried reinstalling the firmware using device manager but it doesn't work.

Autoplay Not Working When DVD Inserted Into Drive - Showing Generic In Explorer
Every time I stick a DVD (game/movie) into the drive it comes up with an autoplay box with 1 option, to open the folder to view files. In Explorer the DVD shows up just as a generic DVD - basically as if it were just a blank disc for burning. If I 'explore' the disc there are no playable files, just an empty folder and a notepad document. I can't play the DVD in WMP, or any other player and can't start a game from the disc. This happened once before after burning a CD, the system just wouldn't recognise DVDs. It sorted itself out pretty quickly last time, this time, again after burning a CD, I can't get it to work.

DVD Drive Freezes Computer
I recently install windows 7 RC and when I tried to put in the cd to install some sound drivers my computer just froze. explorer.exe just stops responding whenever I put any disc in the drive. If I open the drive to take the disc out it instantly unfreezes and it's completely fine! I have tried reinstalling drivers and several other things and I'm at a loss.

D Drive Won't Recognize Any Discs Inserted
I'm not particularly computer literate, however my desktop computer won't read discs. Whether it be a DVD, a set-up disc or even music CD's, there's a 1 in 10 chance that it will see it is there. On the odd occasion it opens, it works fine.

Currently an issue as I am trying to install wireless stick software but the disc will not load.

DVD RW Drive Wont Detect Blank Dvd's
i am having problems with my dvd drives they will both read discs with data on but wont detect blank media, i have tried a number of things now, ive uninstalled them, ive removed the filters in the reg, ive searched for firmware updates and ive tried restoring my system, its not the media either, any i try is the same and they are fine in a different system, the only thing i can think of is if something happened when i changed from xp to 7 but im sure ive burned dvd whilst running 7 before, cant remember. The drives are SONY DVD RW DW-D22A and LITE-ON COMBO SOHC-4836K.

DVD Playback Freezes
since I changed from Win XP to Win 7 I encounter freezing during playback of DVD's. I tested several DVD's and the problem occurs with both WMP and PowerDVD 6 as well as PowerDVD 9. The only difference between PowerDVD 6 and WMP is that the former freezes every 5 minutes for approximately 5 seconds whereas WMP freezes every 2 to 3 minutes for 10 minutes. So, the latter is useless at all.

My graphics card driver is up to date. I deactivated hardware acceleration in PowerDVD. I would be grateful for further suggestions as I would like to keep Win 7.

Dvd Drive Won't Run Pc-dvd?
I have an Asus K60IJ, I recently had a friend install the full version of win7 and office (laptop came w/ win7 but not full up. I am trying to re-install flight sim X, and it won't run the disc, i can hear the drive runnin up then down, but it eventually shows the disc as a blank and the only options it gives me is to burn to the disc. I'm not very computer smart, but I've tried looking for drivers, system says I have the most current driver and it's running properly. I tried uninstalling it, and re-booting with the same results. The drive will still run other discs, and a friend tested the disc in his laptop so the disc is good

Autoplay Fix Not Open When Inserted A Disc
I am having problems with autoplay, it doesn't open when I insert a disc. I get a message that tells me that I don't have a program installed as default when opening a dvd, same with audio discs but I have media player. I can still explore and install programs and have found i can open DVDs with Power DVD but I would like to find out why DVDs and CDs just don't open. I have autoplay ticked in default autoplay settings and have attached the message I get when I try to open from my computer.

Installation Freezes When Finishes Loading The Dvd
I just got a copy of windows 7(64-bit ultimate, because its from my college its the upgrade version) and I'm having some install troubles. The installation keeps freezing right when it finishes loading the dvd.

Currently on windows xp. We know the dvd works (tried it in a different computer) and the dvd drive in this system works (tried using different operating systems). I can move the mouse around, and no keyboard shortcuts appear to work. I had the windows 7 beta installed a ways back, so I know the OS works on this system.

Get USB Thumb Drives To Show A Taskbar Icon When Inserted?
I'd like an icon to show up on the taskbar whenever I insert a USB thumbdrive. Then I can click this icon to safely eject the USB. I'm not talking about the notification area. I'm talking about the taskbar where open programs show their respective icons.

Restart During Partition Process - Inserted Recovery Media But Keyboard Not Working
I tried to break the disk on several parts with Partition Manager, but at the middle of the process it froze and I forced the computer to restart. After resetting it says to "Insert the Recover Disk or other Recovery Media". After it I put the disc with the Windows 7 and at the menu where you have to choose to move (by keyboard arrows) to installation, the keyboard does not work, so I can't move to the installation and it jumps directly to the Local Disc. I also tried Windows XP disc and the same problem - there is no chance to reinstall the system. The keyboard is working in the BIOS, but after does not work.

Install Windows 7 With Sata Hard Drive And IDE DVD ROM Drive
I have tried numerous times on my PC to install Windows 7 onto my Sata Drive to no avail. Yet as soon as I plug in my IDE HD it installs fine.I have unplugged all external peripherals USB and internal Card Reader. Set my Bios ok as it sees both the Hard Drive and DVD fine (Both in the bios and during selection of hard drive during windows 7 installation). Yet when I come to install it, it craps out at a random percentage saying cannot read from source or worse yet it crawls so slow through the percentages (I really don't think Windows 7 should take 6 hours to get to 15%!!) Yet both the hard drive and dvd are fine and the disc works great on my other PC without the sata drive in.

My motherboard is a Biostar G31-M7 TE with latest bios now what is odd is that I recently updated the BIOS to the latest one so does my problem come from here or was it always going to be a problem on this board? Also when I do have Windows 7 installed on the IDE drive when I plug in ther sata drive inside the whole system goes belly up (from freezes when transferring large files to just not seeing the drive)

Windows 7 Won't Recognize IDE Hard Drive & DVD Drive
I recently installed windows 7 home premium 64 bit, previous OS was Vista home premium 32 bit. My desktop is an HP pavilion d4650y. I have the OS loaded on my main HD which is a SATA.

HD & DVD drive worked perfectly before on vista. I tested both devices on another pc with XP and they work fine. I've triple checked the connections but still the devices are not recognized by Windows 7. I've also tried renaming the HD & changing the drive letter, but still no luck.

Both drives are connected to a PCI E card, and are set to cable select, on separate cables. In the BIOS both drives show up. In disk management they do not show up at all.

My HD is a western digital 250 gb EIDE, and the DVD drive is a IDE Pioneer DVD burner (secondary disc drive).

Win 7 Not Detecting Hard Drive, Floppy And Dvd Drive
The bios is detecting all of them but Windows 7 is not. The floppy's power is on all the time and it is enabled in the bios. My 3rd hard drive is not being detected, however I did delete some windows 7 files and it was working before that. And I have no idea about my dvd drive. My other drive is working though.

USB Flash Drive / DVD Drive Problem
I recently ran into a very weird windows 7 bit problem after installing it on my desktop. I cannot copy large files/ holders into usb flash drive or write large files to cd/ dvd. The copying/ moving process would stay on for about 5-10 seconds then freezes then I get an error message. That is:

H: refers to a location that is unavailable. it could be on a hard drive on this computer...

I have all the latest drivers.

And windows/ nero 9 can't use my dvd drive to burn files.

Some info about my system: AMD X4 630 CPU. MSI KA780G (AMD 780G chipset) mobo. I have 2 sata hdds, non raid mode. The DVD drive is IDE. 4gb ram ddr2 ram. windows 7 64 bit.
