    DVD ROM slow reading at malfunctioning


    Hi Guys
    My DVD ROM is malfunctioning what I mean is when Im trying to eject the DVD its not coming out.
    My remedy for this is to get the disk when my laptop is booting.
    Sometimes its not showing on my computer I need to restart the system to see it again

    I dont know if the driver for my ROM is correct.
    Because before, my laptop HD fails so it needs to be replaced
    and after replacement Windows will be install.
    After installing win7 I just use windows update and Driver Pack Solution.

    Please help me.

    Hello Adriansam,

    For tray drives :

    Sometimes they get stuck. There is a little hole on the front of the CD drive that you can stick a
    paperclip in which will release the drive and allow it to open.

    Create a Paperclip Drive Opener

    Open a CD/DVD drive with paperclip.

    For other CD/DVD issues :

    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    Stage 1 : Please do all the below even if you have done some before as it is often the total
    process which solves the issue.

    Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab -
    click Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL -
    REBOOT this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if drive is not shown continue
    below.

    Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then check cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just snug. For laptops you can often clean the power and
    data contacts with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD drives do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the System maker and
    device maker to see if there is firmware or drivers for you drive if needed.

    ===============================

    Stage 2 : You could have drive issues as the CD/DVD is actually 4 drives in 1 case ( CD & DVD
    burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 parts to not function while the others
    do so properly.

    Did you complete the troubleshooter for the drive that still does not work? There are some
    registry entries that the troubleshooter does not fix and those "might" be the cause.

    Check with your System Maker and Device maker for both possible firmware updates and the
    correct Registry entries for your drive.

    These are the keys I think are the ones in question - for the CD/DVD drive sub-keys of course
    as there will other sub-keys in these keys. Be sure to ask for specific keys involved as well as
    the settings.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

    You probably can find more info here and maybe even the exact registry settings for your
    CD/DVD drive from someone with the same model.

    Use DevManView to locate CD/DVD in registry (be careful and make a Restore Point before
    changing anything) - find the device in DevManView and then Right Click on it Open in RegEdit.
    DevManView - Free - an alternative to the standard Device Manager of Windows, which displays
    all devices and their properties in flat table, instead of tree viewer
