DisK not Recognized

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I noticed this problem for a while now and I'm not sure how to resolve it.  My optical drive (LG Blu-ray Writer) does not recognize any disk I insert.  The only way I get it to read the disk is if I boot the computer with it already in the drive.  Otherwise, it just says something to the effect of "No disk inserted".

 

I've tried deleting the Upper and Lower limit registry files as suggested by some forums, and I updated the Intel chipset drivers to the newest version to no avail.  There is nothing physically wrong with it, but I'm thinking some software or driver is interfering with it.  Has anyone had experience with this issue?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Edit:  Wow, I did not realize I typed DisK...sorry about that.

is it dvds, cds or blu rays? I have the same drive and it barely reads dvds.

It's strange because I had no problems with it at first.  It does not read any of the above.  I just tried all three...very frustrating.

What burning or image making software do you have installed?

 

As it could be one of these programs causing this, like you have said.

BB1 - The only one I can think of is ImgBurn.  Other than that, I just use Windows/iTunes' built-in burning capabilities. 

 

Freddie - My Computer --> I double click on the drive and it says no disk inserted.  It will not start Autoplay or anything.

Shurman - are you running the latest firmware for that optical drive?  If not consider updating the firmware and see if that helps.

I updated it at one point a while ago.  When the problem first started, I searched for updated FW versions and the latest was already installed.  

 

I'm afraid I will eventually have to reinstall Windows, but I have neither the time nor the energy (nor the bandwidth) to reload all my programs at the moment.   :-/  I hope there is a fix for it somewhere!

different Sata port? see if it kicks in new drivers or something.

 

edit: are you sure your drive is even showing up? that drive letter could be false, windows does that sometimes and your drive could be waiting a letter to be assigned.

I have seen this problem when the sata port that the device is hooked to is set to ACHI in the bios. I see that you have an ssd drive so that leads me to think that you have at least some of your sata ports set to ACHI. Maybe try a different port set to ide and see if that fixes it.

I will try that, thanks guys.  I do have everything set to ACHI mode.  I'll mess around with the settings and see what I can do.

 

Edit:  It worked!! I set my Intel Sata controller to IDE mode and it worked after a restart.  Thank you so much!
