[HELP] HP 530 DvD Drive Problems.

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and I have a request. I need to know that how can I fix my DVD Burner installed in my notebook. The problem is that whenever i try to eject its tray, it doesn't come out, rather i have to push the whole tray inside for some time and then try again. Even after inserting the cd, i have to shake the drive to make it detect the disk. Please help.

If a DVD burner does as you describe, then it needs to be replaced with a new one.
Is the notebook still in its warranty period? 
If not, Here is where you can order it from.

  • Need help with cd/dvd drive problem.

    I have a MacBook (black) running OS 10.6.8. The internal cd/dvd drive no longer works. I put in a disk and it gets pushed back out after a few seconds.
    I just bought a LG Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer model GP 60NB50. The MacBook recognizes the LG drive for opening music and movies, and for burning photos to a disk.
    I have been unable to use the LG drive as a start-up drive. I put Disk Warrior into the drive and restarted the computer holding down the “C” key. When the computer starts to launch there is a flash of a “?” on the screen then it loads from the hard disk. I also tried using the Apple start up disk that came with the computer but that also failed.
    Any idea how I can get the LG drive to become a start-up drive when needed?

    If your computer is a TouchSmart, and I am only guessing that it is, this document might help.
    Good luck!

  • DVD drive problems : should I buy the new iMac ?

    Hello, being new to these discussions, I don't know if this question was answered before.
    My last iMac's DVD drive stopped working after 3 years use. And from reading the discussions, this problem seemed quite common.
    But 3 years is not bad, considering the posts talking about the DVD drive not working on NEW iMacs.
    Does anybody know if Apple is going to do something about this soon ? My computer is a working tool, and I cannot spend time or money on repairs all the time.
    Thank you.
    A Mac user since 1985

    +"Well, since nobody has an answer, I suppose I will wait until I no longer see the DVD drive problems on the discussions."+
    That might be a while. I bought my iMac Oct. 15 and the DVD drive is already not responding. Backing up files, I had burned 2 DVDs from the same package, Toast says this one is a CD-RW and unwritable, and makes a noise like it's trying to eject it but nothing happens. Disk utility says the DVD drive is empty and nothing shows up in the Finder. Using Terminal (drutil eject) and starting up with the mouse button held down makes the same noise as trying to eject it in Toast, with the same results - nothing.
    Still trying to find the receipt to take it back & get it repaired. I sure miss the hole for the paper clip.

  • DVD drive problem; Help please!

    I just bought a Toshiba laptop a few days ago and it has been working great, except today as soon as I turned on the laptop, the DVD drive opened and now it wont stay closed. Once I closed it, it popped open a few seconds later.
    Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Does anyone know why it's happening? Thank you!
    Write what must not be forgotten

    Thanks for your help, guys!
    Well, my DVD drive closes now. Should I still return it though? Or call Toshiba tech support?
     I bought it online, so I didn't really get any warranty.

  • T41 DVD drive problems.

    First of all, I would like to say hello! I am new to the forums, and I have been recommended to come here for help and advice regarding my laptop.
    Second of all, my problem. As follows - 
    My laptop seems to have stopped recognizing my DVD drive. When I click on My Computer, is is not listed, but when I insert a CD or DVD I can hear the drive running, however nothing appears on the screen. 
    I have gone into Device Manager in an attempt to diagnose the problem, and it tells me that the driver may be missing or corrupted (code 39). I have run Spybot Search & Destroy, and AVG free edition, and neither have found any viruses. 
    Before the problem started, the drive was working perfectly. The model number of the drive is  HL-D-ST DVD-ROM GDR8083N (I believe it was made by LG Electronics). 
    Lastly, I am not a computer expert. I do not know a huge amount about how they work, so forgive me for any mistakes I have made. If you need to know anything about the laptop or the drive I am happy to try and find it for you. 
    Thanks, 2007DBR9

    Hello 2007DBR9 and welcome here.
    Please donwload a Knoppix or other Linux Live cd. Burn it to cd and boot with it.
    If your drive won´t be found it seems a hardware defect.
    Also you should check recent bios updates on Lenovo support pages, may be there 
    are some hints at the release informations about problems fixed with those drives.
    Follow @LenovoForums on Twitter! Try the forum search, before first posting: Forum Search Option
    Please insert your type, model (not S/N) number and used OS in your posts.
    I´m a volunteer here using New X1 Carbon, ThinkPad Yoga, Yoga 11s, Yoga 13, T430s,T510, X220t, IdeaCentre B540.
    TIP: If your computer runs satisfactorily now, it may not be necessary to update the system.

  • OS 10.4.9 CD/DVD Drive problem

    After the 10.4.9 update the CD/DVD drive no longer recognizes discs.
    DMG files will mount, but don't show up on the desktop. Installer files will run but the disc icon itself is invisible.
    System profiler sees the drive, but discs won't mount. I've fixed permissions, updated prebindings and run maintenance scripts and that didn't help.
    Drive ejects and opens/closes door properly but discs just spin and never mount. I used the drive moments before the update and it worked fine then.

    How about running Disk First Aid repair on your boot volume via Disk Utility when booted from your Tiger install disc which is much more critical and important over repairing disk permissions or any of the other things you have already done?
    Was a Hardware Test CD included with your Mac purchase and if so, have you run the extended tests?
    If the hardware test checks out OK, run Disk First Aid repair (not very disk) and if any problems are reported and successfully repaired, run repair again until no problems are reported.
    Afterwards and if you used Software Update, download the 10.4.9 Combo Update and re-install 10.4.9.

  • DVD Drive problem

  • External DVD Drive Problems - Mountain Lion

    I am having problems using external DVD Drives on my 2012 Mac Mini.
    I have tried using 2 plug and play devices that are stared to work with Macs.
    The drive powers up but it does not appear anywhere on the mac. essentially it wont mount.
    the lasest drive I have tried is the Samsung SE - 208
    Please Help!!!

    Connect the drives, launch Disk Utility, and see if they show up. If so, pop in a disc and see if that solves your issue. AFAIK, they won't mount unless there/s a disc inside. If still no go,Zap the PRAM and Reset the SMC, then try again.

  • Flex 2 15 Dvd drive problem

    I have a new Flex 2 & was trying to install software using the DVD drive. The disk won't fit correctly into the drive due to the center spindle being larger than the center hole on the disk. So rather than sitting inside the drive fitting, it sits on top of the spindle & wobbles. I have never seen a problem like this before. What can I do to fix this pr at least work around this? I haven't bought blank dvd's or cd's in a couple of years, but has the size of the dvd opening been increased?
    Go to Solution.

    That really sounds strange. The center hole diameter has not changed since the beginning. Must be something else. Sounds like a case for warranty repair.
    BTW my optical drive makes loud noise but at least it works. In Germany they were not able to replace it due to stock / logistic problems........

  • Satellite M300 - DVD Drive Problem

    I have a Satellite M300 and when I insert a DVD movie to watch the DVD drive spins and hums but the disk is not read. The drive stays like this and when I try to eject the disk there is no response at all form the computer.
    When I try to eject through windows media player it says the drive is busy, but still nothing happens.
    The drive continues to spin and hum loudly without reading the disk and the only way to stop the disk spinning and to eject the DVD is to restart the computer and eject during load up before the computer tries to read the disk again.
    I am only a novice at notebooks so any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
    Also the computer was purchased in Australia and I am currently living in Germany
    Please reply in English
    Thanks Daniel

    its is a strange problem, it will do it with more so original DVD's, but does happen on occasion with burnt or created disks
    with original disks it might happen a few times then on an off chance the disk will be read and works fine, but more so it is not read

  • DV2490SE DVD Drive Problem

    Hello, I have a problem with my friend's computer. Her DVD drive is not showing up in "My Computer" or "Device Manager". 
    Her laptop is a DV2490 SE with Windows Vista Home 64 bit. I've tried pressing I think it was F12 to reach the bios page and then reset the entire thing to default. 
    After the reset, the DVD drive shows up but the entire computer becomes SO slow. 
    She told me that her DVD drive broke once and HP sent her a new one to just pop in there. I was wondering maybe she installed it wrong? Because when I press the button to eject a disk, it does not come out, I have to actually pull it out, and when I do pull it out, it does feel a little lose. 
    Any help would be great! Thank you! 

    Well - everyone seems to be having trouble with everything in this Forum...
    As with RAM, hard drives, video cards, mices, etc., etc. you will find many and various recommendations - and many and various reports of problems with the self-same item.
    My impression would be that there are fewer reports of problems with the 111D, but that may be because it was introduced comparatively recently.
    Bearing in mind the price, availability, the ease of fitting when it's a replacement for the 106D (the 'stand-offs', the screw-in spacers that support the drive at the right height for the tray to operate the silver optical drive gate mechanism and clear the edges of the aperture, are the correct length and can be re-used), and that it should be fully supported by OS X - it should be fine.
    Of course, my personal experience is with the 110D - but that came from eBuyer, too.
    ...and don't forget to remove the bezel from the front edge of the tray...

  • Lost control of dvd drive / problem w bootcamp & windows xp

    I have been running Windows XP in my bootcamp partition (and via Parallels) and now have this problem:
    my machine does not see my dvd drive, although mechanically, it still works; on start up it spins up, it shifts back and forth, and makes all the normal noises. And, there is a Windows XP install disk still in there.
    The Windows XP install disk is in there because I got the "windows32\hal.dll" corrupted error message on starting my Windows side, and I was attempting to repair it by re installing the dll file.
    "About this Mac->Hardware->disc burning" shows "No burning device was found. If you are using an external device please make sure that it is connected and powered properly." I get a similar reading on the Windows side: my computer profile.
    I've tried the following:
    --push the eject button (nothing happens)
    --use disk utility to eject (doesn't see a cd drive)
    --hold mousepad down while doing cold restart (does not currently work, but it worked last week when I was working on this problem).
    --reset pmu by unplugging, removing battery, and holding power switch for 5 secs; then tried cold restart and mousepad. (nothing happens)
    To Repeat: it is not a mechanical problem; the disk drive spins up on restart; the disk is not warped or damaged.
    I would love to get this disk ejected, so that I then can reformat my drive and start over.

    Open Terminal.app (in OSX), type this in, and press enter.
    $ drutil status
    It should give the status, and more importantly the Name, mine is /dev/disk4
    Now, type in the following and press enter:
    $ hdiutil eject -force /dev/DISKNAME
    So mine looked like this:
    $ hdiutil eject -force /dev/disk4
    Let us know if that helps.

    hp pavilion dv9650us dvd player will read regular dvd's but won't read regular home made dvd windows vista is my OSH
    Hi my Dvd player was working fine until I did some driver updates, then I noticed my DVD and audio wasn't working. I went back and reinstalled the old drivers for my audio and now it works and my DVD player will read and play regular DVD's you purchase but won't read my DVD's I make at home when I do my video progjects.   Is there a problem with my DVD driver reading the disc and is it something that can be fixed with a software update?

    Most likely it is the driver since it was working.  Was the reinstall of the old drivers an install, or a Restore back to an earlier date?  I would have done the Restore thereby getting the actual drivers and settings I had before the update.  You can still try this if it hasn't be too long ago. 
    If I have been helpful, a Kudo is always appreciated.
