Problem New Laptop CD Rom

  Revi 19:28 16 Apr 2004

Just bought a brand new laptop, never used such before. Everything works fine with it. But if I insert a CD in the CD player it does not play. Could it be that the CD player is not installed at all? OS is XP Home.

does it work with other discs? cd-roms etc etc

Can you "see" it using Explorer?
Is it listed in Device manager?

Yes it uses Explorer.

if it is a modular drive is it pushed right in? it has only got to be a fraction out and it will not work....

I have received a lot of CDs with the laptop. Could it be that I have to install all of them before using the laptop?

No, that is quite ok.

I just inserted the original XP cd received with the laptop and it works fine. But it does not recognise if I insert another CD!

It´s a miracle. Audio Cds are working fine. But when I try to install a programme from a CD then it does not work.
