Hi,
I am fixing an eMachine 270 for a friend. When you place a CD/DVD into theDVD-rom it will not run. If i go into My computer, the DVD-Rom is their. However if i right click it and select explore nothing is shown. Also Device manager shows the drive as ok and working. The drive is a Samsung SM-332 CD-RW/DVD.

I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks.

first, check if the cables are connected properly.
second, go in bios and see if the second ide is enabled
thrid, install the chipset driver for your chipset
four, go to device manager and see if the second ide channel is disabled
five, install sata drivers if the dvd rom is sata(if the pc was modded)

well, go to device manage and see if theres a yellow exclaimation mark beside ur cd driver and maybe error message "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"


try to burn a cd, if it doesnt work, then probably your cd drive is having some trouble

Hi,
Thanks for your help. The drive is dead. I removed it and connected up a drive from my machine, which works perfectly.
The only problem i have now is where do you get hold of that model of drive, so that the front covers will fit. Any recommendations please.
