Preferred Solution: DVD drive shown as CD ROM - not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok, this is a weird question, I know, but I don't know exactly how to Google this to find the answer.

I have a 1.5 tb external drive (which shows up as something like 1.3 tb in Windows). I use it for storage, but now I have it set up to automatically back up my internal drive. Now it shows up as 1.04 tb in "My Computer." I looked in "Disk Management" and it seems to have three partitions, two of which have no drive letters assigned. So, I just have one quick question, is that normal?

The reason I ask is because today I was messing around with dual-booting Ubuntu. I just wanted to make sure I didn't mess something up.

To anyone who answers, thanks for putting up with a stupid question, lol.

p.s When the sound is turned on my pc works for 15-20 min and stop,when the sound is muted the pc works for about 40 min and suddenly stop.

A:Pc stop working no errors shown:S

Hello Alex le large

Have you tried to update the sound driver?

Also have a look in these places for errors

1. Right click My Computer / Properties / Hardware / Device Manager.
Look for "Yellow" errors
Is there one at Sound?

2. Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Admin Tools / Event Viewer / System.
Look for "Red" errors. Double click on error.
Take a note of the Event ID and also the Source and post them back.

HI I have a AMD athlon(tm) 64 X2 dual core 5000+ 2.60GHz
Running Window 7 Service pack 1
which my son is using for his Steam but we are unable to get the mic to work.
We are using on board sound through the front jacks headphones(turtle beach X12) work but the mic is not working or showing up in sound i have also tried to use the rear jack with the same results.
Thanks for any help in advance

A:Front mic port not working/shown in sounds

Is the mic part of the X12 USB connection, or is it separate and uses the 3.5mm audio plug to connect?

USB connections usually bypass the actual sound card.

I have searched google for ours trying to find a fix for this but to no avail.

CD drive and virtual drives dont appear in my computer and whenever i put in a dvd nothing comes up.

it appears in device manager and disc management however so i know there is nothing physically wrong with the optical drive. Under disc manager i can see the details about the dvd such as dvd name, size etc.

i tried changing drive letter and path but unfortunately that doesnt fix it. the letter "applies" for a second then disappears again.

any help would be highly appreciated.

also i am using windos 7 with all the updates installed

I have just noticed that my sata optiarc ad-7200s dvdrw drive is shown as a cd drive under the my computer screen. I have looked and downloaded the new firmware version available for the drive with no change.
Does anyone know how I can get the system to recognise the drive as a dvd drive? I also have an unknown high definition audio device that does not have any drivers for it and I cannot seem to find what it actually is in the computer. Could both problems be related?
 

A:Dvd-rw shown as cd drive

I've ahd the issue with the dvd-rw looking like a cd drive. But as soon as i put a dvd disk in it re-blesses it with the correct format, and doesn't operate any differently tbh.

As regards the unknown audio device, have you tried deleting it from device manager, rebooting and letting it plug'n'play to see if it finds drivers?

Mates--In a Dell Dim 8200 I used Seagate utility and create a clone of my main HD on the slave HD (IDE ATA). The intent was to swap the HDs so the manin with 320G could be used as an external for another PC. Since I have not bought the enclosure to do this, I left the slave back in the Dim 8200 but Acronics Disc director does not recognize it. Windows disk manager doesn't see it either. When I remove the main and load the slave it boots up w/o problem. Need to know how to format the slave so an the image of Main can be loaded on it. Welcome your thoughts

Hello anoopkp,Does your pen drive work if inserted into another computer? If "no", drive may be bad or needs to be re-formatted. If "yes" then here are a few suggestions that you could try:Have a look at this link: http://askville.amazon.com/computer-recognize-flash-drive/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=41446759 regarding changing drive letter.Or try this: Open "My Computer" and if you don't see your USB drive, go to top menu "View," and click "Refresh."If you feel that your problem is malware related, then you should create a post in the Am I infected?

A:External Drive Not Shown

WPD stands for Windows Portable Device. It's the driver that allows the USB devices for Media Syncing. It is also required for ReadyBoost to work. The driver is likely corrupted or not installed.

Uninstall the drivers from the Device manager
1. Click start
2. Type devmgmt.msc in Start Search and press Enter
3. In Device Manager locate the USB device, right click on it and select the option uninstall.
4. Restart the computer and check.
For more information you may refer the following link and run the Fixit for resolving USB Device issues:

I dont know how this has happened, but I now have an extra CD Drive shown on "My Computer". I have not physically added any such drive. How do I get rid of it?

I suspect it may have got there as a result of my inexperience with RMPrepUSB which I have been attempting to use without success to produce a bootable usb stick with Partition Wizard on it as per Bharat Balegere's tech tips on agnipulse.com/2011/01/. If this is likely, can anyone wise me up so I dont do it again?

It was working fine prior to the reinstall and although it still shows up in Device Manage under disk drives, it is the only place. The problem could be that my master hd was designated as D: and it is now renamed C:; what the slave was named before. I want to know if there is any way to restore the harddrive to its previous state or recover the data that is on the slave as it does contain 80 gigs of data that is quite hard to replace.

Welcome prabz,


Several users have had luck by shutting down computer. Disconnecting DVD power & data cable. Power up computer, then delete any DVD drivers still present. Power OFF again. Reconnect DVD power & data cable, be connected to the internet & power ON computer again. See if Win7 finds the newest drivers automatically.

Best of Luck, Let us know

I have a USB key which I use to shuttle stuff from one comp to another. A couple of the machines are macs.After using the key in a mac last time (and "maybe" reformatting it) it now does not show on "my Computer" in XPI have re-formatted it as a DOS volume in the Mac to no result.XPs Computer Management / device manager / disk drive shows it as a USB flash disk, Properties shows it is working normallyIf I plug it into a USB 1 port on my PC I get the warning saying it could perform fasterI know I need to re-format it. Trouble is, how do I do this if "my computer" doesnt show it? I have XP set up to resemble win98 as much as possible - is this an issue in some arcane windows way?

A:Flash Drive Not Shown On "my Computer"

Right click on My computer and go to manage. From there select Disk Management. You will see the drive. Right click on the drive and see if there is a option to assign a drive letter. This should then list the drive in My Computer.

I hope this resolves the issue.

I have a similar problem as a previous thread, with a little bit of a difference. My PC has 3 hard drives and one DVD drive. I can see 2 of the hard drives in Libraries, but not the 3rd hard drive, or the DVD drive. If I go into Computer Management, they are shown, but say "No Media", and the internal hard drive is shown as "removable".

It won't let me right click anything except to access Properties or Change Drive Letters/Paths. These drives were working until fairly recently, but the hard drive was the first to give me problems. Sometimes it wouldn't show up, and rebooting the PC would let it show up. Now, however, that no longer works. I have data on that drive I really want to keep, so formatting it is not an option. And of course, I can't format a DVD drive.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:One hard drive, and my DVD drive not shown?

The DVD and the HDD may be different problems - maybe. Try this:

For the DVD, see whether this helps: Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs

For the disk have a look in Disk Management first and see what it says there. If appropriate, post a snip of your Disk Management.

And as a general catch all, you could try to run sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt.

I have a 3 TB hard drive connected to a Windows 7 computer. The very first time I connected this hard drive Windows "lured" me into formatting the drive and the result was that the drive showed up as a 750 GB hard drive. Whatever I tried later to get this drive back to 3 TB failed. Now this drive shows up in Disk Management as

Disk 1
Basic
2047.88 GB .......... 2047.88 GB
Online ................. Unallocated

and

Disk 2
Basic
749.39 GB ............ 746.39 GB
Online .................. Unallocated

How can I reformat this disk back to being one disk with 3 TB?

Thanks for your help.

Hey, I just installed the RC last night and everything was going okay until I restarted my computer and my backup drive disappeared. It was accessible until I restarted, I didn't install any new drivers.

It's an IDE drive.. it doesn't show up in Disk Management either so I'm kind of stuck at what to do. Any ideas?

Hello:

I have Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

I do not know when my dvd/cd drive disappeared, but it has. It is not shown in Disk Management. However, it works insofar as that I can boot from it with a boot disk. I cannot run disks in it.

Disk Manager shows drives C-H (SSD), J (ext), L (ext) and Z (mapped drive of other computer), but not my DVD/CD drive.

What can I do to get the DVD/CD (optical) disk to show? (I seem to remember , way back, that you had to make sure drive letters were activated. Don't know how these days; have looked!)

Thanks in advance.

Today I went to defrag my laptop computer because it had frozen up for several minutes and found that in addition to the main drive, the recover drive and the system drive there was a fourth drive I didn't recognize.
 
It has the name \\?\Volume{b1e2ed35-909b-4ce3-8f3c-ec23037f3c1e}\
 
The optimize window says that it is 36% fragmented and need optimization.
 
Clicking on it does nothing. Analyzing it and Optimizing it does nothing.
 
It doesn't show up anywhere else as far as I know.
 
Is this a virtual drive, a virus, a partition something set up?

A:Sata Drive Used As Slave, Not Shown In Bios. One Will Not Format

You can't use SATA drives as slave, they don't have a Master/Slave relationship like PATA/IDE drives do. So if the buyer is the one that used the slave term, perhaps he's jumpered some of the pins ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Image... RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive ) If he did that, then yes, I could see that the drives may not work as expected.

Dear friends,

I recently moved a backup file stored in an external HD to a new location using copy/paste. Then, I moved it back to the original location. Now, this backup file is presented as a regular directory (doesn't show the backup file icon) and is not eligible to restore files. How should I make it visible again to restore files?. Also, there are a lot of zip files inside this directory containing the backed up files, but as I said, the backup date is not shown in the restore session.

Thanks.

- check teh media for physical damages (scratches etc)
- try burning with a CD-RW to test its not a bad CD batch you got
- disable all third party burning software (nero, roxio etc) and try test with WinXP's cd burning software
- open up the pc and check cables and such connected properly, reseat if needed
- try on another pc

Hi,

My CD-ROM drive and CD-RW drive quit working at the same time. It's hooked up properly and i dont think the IDE cable is broken. I tried the jumpers. They lights turn on and i can open and close it's just that Win 98 SE won't notice them.
Thanks
 

A:Both CD-R drive and Regular CD drive quit working

Start,Control Panel, System, Device Manager, IDE controllers....any yellow splat marks on them. Anywhere in Device Manager. Do you see an Other Devices? No? good. Look under the Performance Tab at the top. Any drives running in compatibility mode? Any about a boot record changing. No? Get back to us with further details.

I have a 1gb Kingston Data Traveler, which works just fine with my copy of Win7. As far as an idea of usb mass storage driver problems? I have also a Simple Drive, which registers as a usb mass storage device as well, no problems there. Might be a problem with your install or something.

Basically I was trying to restore my system defaults by using the Recovery DVD (at the time, this seemed like a good idea). I suppose it's installed whatever was on the recovery thing to my D Drive, and now it's full. I do believe I've royally screwed things up on the C drive, because after you pass the log-in screen it's going to a black screen with a dialogue box that says something about my Microsoft Office drivers, and it tried to load something for about 5 minutes before I gave up. Is there an easy way to transfer everything from the D to the C drive? Or should I just take this somewhere?

Also, are there directions to wiping a hard drive, but leaving the Op System? Ideally I'd like to have the computer back to how it was when I got it. I'm new at this, obviously.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1501 with Vista HomeBasic 2006.

hello

before you do anything further, have you tried booting into safe mode and using last known good configuration?

------> enter safe mode..turn on and keep tapping the F8 key.....

there is also a hidden partition in that particular model we can get to if needed.

Also do you have the dell recovery disc?

thanks

Hi all, just finished my new build and taking a look in the computer properties says that i have only 4GB of ram installed yet i should hae 8.

I Checked that i installed x86, by looking in the C:\\ Drive to find (C:\\Program Files(x86)
I have gone into system configuration and checked that there was no limit under the 'boot' section.

My motherboard is a Asus M5A78L-M LX
My Ram is 8GB Corsair Vengeance.

Any Ideas?

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop.

Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.

From the l2mfix folder on your desktop, double click l2mfix.bat and select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing enter. It will process then start. Your desktop and icons will disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, it will be ready for a reboot. Press any key to reboot. After the reboot notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it back into this thread, along with a new hijackthis log.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder unless you are asked to do so!
If after the reboot the log does not open double click on it in the l2mfix folder.

Hi to everyone who reads this.

I have a problem with some pictures on webpages that uses the .gif extension.
I only see the .gif icon but not the picture. (See screenshot 1.)
And when I right click on it and choose "Show Pictures" it doesn't help either.

There are a few things I tried so far but unfortunatly they didn't resolve my issue.
- IE Options --> Advanced --> I checked the "Show Pictures"
- IE Alt Menu Image/Picture --> Coding --> I selected "Auto Select"
- In the Extensions Folder --> .gif is associated with IE.

And now I'm out of options, so I return to this forum to be helped by people with more knowledge than me.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to cure this problem, thank you.

Best regards Carlo

Hi.
I have a three year old Medion all in one PC running windows 10.
My has always worked fine playing CD's, ripping CD's and playing commercial DVD's.
Recently a DVD I was watching stopped and wouldn't restart. Since then the drive will not recognise DVD's. It makes promising noises then gives up. 'No disc in drive E' is then displayed. It still plays and rips CD's.
I have cleaned the lens several times with a Laser Lens Cleaner disc. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the drive.
It is still not working. Any ideas what I can do? Do they break after a while and need replacing?

Strange new folder has shown up on my computer "System Z." I can find out nothing about it. It will not open for me. I do not have access. Do I have a virus or some other malware? I can't even find where it is located.

A:What is a new folder that has shown up

When you installed Windows, you would have used the GPT method.Extract from the link I gave you.Windows partition requirements:https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...System partitionThe device must contain a system partition. On GPT drives, this is known as the EFI System Partition, or the ESP. This partition is usually stored on the primary hard drive. The device boots to this partition.The minimum size of this partition is 100 MB, and must be formatted using the FAT32 file format.This partition is managed by the operating system, and should not contain any other files, including Windows RE tools.NoteFor Advanced Format 4K Native drives (4-KB-per-sector) drives, the minimum size is 260 MB, due to a limitation of the FAT32 file format. The minimum partition size of FAT32 drives is calculated as sector size (4KB) x 65527 = 256 MB.Advanced Format 512e drives are not affected by this limitation, because their emulated sector size is 512 bytes. 512 bytes x 65527 = 32 MB, which is less than the 100 MB minimum size for this partition.Microsoft® reserved partition (MSR)Beginning in Windows 10, the size of the MSR is 16 MB.Add an MSR to each GPT drive to help with partition management. The MSR is a reserved partition that does not receive a partition ID. It cannot store user data.Other utility partitionsAny other utility partitions not managed by Windows must be located before the Windows, data, and recovery image partitions. This allows end users to perform actions such as resizing the Windows partition without affecting system utilities.Protect end users from accidentally modifying utility partitions by identifying them using a GPT attribute. This prevents these partitions from appearing in File Explorer.

I am using Intel DG33FB motherboard and use 1GBX4=4GB RAM.
In BIOS 4GB is showing, but in Windows XP 32-bit its shows only 3.25GB.
But in Windows XP 64-bit 4GB is showing.

Can anyone provide me a detail explanation.
 

A:Less RAM size shown

• A 32-bit operating system uses 32 bits to refer
to the location of each byte of memory.
• This 4GB is the total amount the OS can
address.
• Subtract from that 4GB all hardware devices that need
memory access. Motherboard components, PCI-E
video cards, etc.
• This can be anywhere from ~500MB to 2GB depending
largely on amount of RAM on the Video Card.
• Result is anywhere from 2GB-3.5GB with 4GB of
memory installed, unless a 64-bit OS is used.

This is why you do not see 4GB when you look at your system memory info.

Hi! I have a problem with a key on my German QWERTZ keyboard.The key is between alt gr and the left arrow key, and it shows the following symbols bottom to top:   |  ?   ? The key does not digit any of those symbols, no matter which key combos I use.Instead, it has a ctrl function. How can I use it to digit those symbols (possibily also when using other language layouts)? What is the reason why it has a different funtion? Thanks!Giulia

Hi people, Well I had some RAM and it shown ONLY 2GB OF RAM. So went out and BOUGHT new RAM 4GB put it in then all i saw was 2GB! After doin' a bit of research I knew that the old RAM had 4GB (I got my computer tweaked so I didnt know) Is there a way to make this show or anything?

A:Rest of RAM not shown?

Did you alter the configuration in MSCONFIG > Boot > Advance?
If so, uncheck "Number of processors" and "Maximum Memory" those checkboxes should be unchecked.

So I've been looking to overclock my laptop for about a week now and I've come across CPU-Z to view some specs and I've noticed that there is no multiplier shown under the CPU tab.




Also if anyone could help me with another problem. When I'm inside my BIOS menu there is no option related to Advanced BIOS features or anything like that.
Picture of CPU-Z displaying Mainboard




Any help or direction would be much appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:CPU-Z no multiplier shown

It is a mobile version of the i7. Much more limited than the desktop version. You are also limited in your over-clocking abilities with this
