Hey Kiran, you just made my day...Thanks!!!! :-D

 

I recognized the problem by having a shutter mouse...I checked the device manager and found my DVD RAM in trouble, well, not working at all.

 

With your help everything is working again

 

Cheers, man!

Re: CD/DVD drive not recognized in hp pavilion dv6500

I apologize for evidently NOT RESPONDING to the numerous suggestions.

I received ALL of the suggestions from the forum together on 9/3/2011.

I do not know why they all were delayed, except that HP indicated that there was a problem.

 

Now, I have tried every suggestion.

Nothing worked, even temporarily.

 

HP itself is dodging an apparent serious defect in the BIOS of the equipment and how Windows Vista deals with the actual hardware resources provided.

 

This should NOT be a user responsibility to continuously fix a manufacturer's defect.

Obviously my unit is not the ONLY HP Pavilion dv6500 with this problem.

 

Maybe this is why HP is getting out of the PC business.

Re: CD/DVD drive not recognized in hp pavilion dv6500

Actually, it's a dv2700.  CD/DVD drive recognized sometimes....but not usually....even an external drive, sometimes, sometimes not.  Tried the fixes suggested....no luck.  This laptop has done many weird things, but it all seemed to start after Service Pack 1 was installed.  Would like to fix this problem first, if possible, then look into solutions for the many other weird things this laptop is doing.  Wish I had never bought it.

Re: CD/DVD drive not recognized in hp pavilion dv6500

I have used the Fixit, and it simply does not work.

I have tried all of the suggestions, so far, but the CD/DVR is simple lost in Windows Vista.

The suggestions to use a USB flash drive device to copy and paste from or to but an external CD/DVR drive unit.

The BIOS sees the hard drive during the boot, but it is not available to Windows Vista.

This is the operating system provided by HP originally. What has happened?

Re: CD/DVD drive not recognized in hp pavilion dv6500

I followed your suggestions for the 4 IDE items listed, and the two ATA Controllers. However, after 4 full shut down and  restarts (no request to delete drivers appeared) there is no references to CD/DVD/DVR that appear.

Re: CD/DVD drive not recognized in hp pavilion dv6500

Finally i found this post and it worked.

 

 

RE: I know this is a really old post but I found a solution for my computer that I didn't find on the internet.  My DVD drive wouldn't show up in the device manager either.  I tried drivers, deleted the upper and lower registry files...changing dvd drives...I tried everything I could find on the internet to fix this problem..and nothing worked.  Today I download MagicISO and MagicDisc to burn an .iso image...I guess the virtual drive installed a driver when I installed MagicDisc...my DVD burner is working now and showing up in the device manager as well as my virtual drive and I am running Windows 7 on a DV9000 HP pavillion notebook.  I hope anyone else reading this with this problem is able to solve thier issue with this solution. I have been searching for months!!!  GoodLuck!
