Windows 7: D Drive won't recognise any discs inserted

D Drive won't recognise any discs inserted

Hi everyone / anyone,

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.

Hope this is understandable..

Cheers,

Max

Hi Max

How long has this issue been a problem?
If you go to "My Computer" does it say that you have a disc drive?

I purchased the computer 2nd hand (reputable source though - no issues) about 2 weeks ago, have had the issue since I purchased it. They had wiped everything on it, and suggested I might need to download a program or 2 (dvx or something) however I don't know how to do this either. I don't see why I'd need another driver if the drive does work - albeit very sporadically.

Yes it says I have a disk drive, and when my computer geek mate checked the computer there didn't seem to be any issues with the drive's hardware?

Hi Max

Is this a laptop or desktop computer ? Can you tell us the make & model, or is it a home built ?

Not to be a pain in the a.. but it doesn't currently have internet. I'm using a laptop currently, and won't have internet on the desktop until I can get the wireless installation disc to run.

Any other way about it?

Sorry, I had some other posts to take care of.

Does the HomeBuilt have a hardwire ethernet port ? Or is your only connection at your location wireless? Do you have any USB flash sticks that could be used to download to the laptop then transfer to the HomeBuilt ?

Is there not a solution without doing this?
