Windows 7: cd/dvd player not detecting cd or dvd

11 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
cd/dvd player not detecting cd or dvd

When I put in a cd or dvd into the cd drive Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player both give me the message No dvd or cd found in drive F. Just 2 weeks ago it worked but now I can't listen to music cd or play dvds.

Go to the Device Manager and report back with the status of the drive, either an error code or if it says it is working OK.

Depending on the status will determine the next step.

To access the Device Manager, hold the Windows key down and press the Pause/Break key. The Device Manager can be accessed in the upper left of the screen that comes up.
