HP Pavillion dv6000 CD/DVD reading problem

[ Edited ]

I am facing a problem with my DVDRW in my HP pavillion dv6000 model (Serial No: [edited]). It is not recognizing any CD / DVD. I see this site and found somany have the similar issue.  I tried uninstalling the driever and restart the computer. It automatically selecting Pioneer DVDRW DVR K17 ATA device. This does not recognize any cd / dvd.  Try to download drivers, update, microsoft fix etc. But in vain.  Please help me to solve this problem.

Re: HP Pavillion dv6000 CD/DVD reading problem

I was looking for help with the same issue, but purely by accident was able to fix.

 

What I did (I am using Vista, BTW, so steps may be different for you):

 

1. Go to Control Panel.

 

2. Select Hardware and Sound.

 

3. Select Device Manager.

 

4. Expand "Disc Drives".

 

5. Right click on the DVD drive listed and select "Scan for Hardware Changes" (You can probably right click on anything and get the same result.)

 

After I did this, the disc drive seemed to work. May have been a fluke, but it seemed to do the trick. Hopefully this will work for others that are having the same issue.

 

Good luck!

Re: HP Pavillion dv6000 CD/DVD reading problem

Boot into the bios at the HP Blue screen (setup) and see if the bios recognizes your CD/DVD drive.  And the answer is?

If the bios doesn't see your CD/DVD drive then you probably have a hardware issue.  You might try removing the drive and then reinstalling it.

 

Try a hard reset. Unplug your laptop, remove the battery and hold down the power button for 30-60 seconds. Replace the battery and plug the laptop back in. Power up and boot into the bios and see if the bios now recognizes the drive.
