Functionality of DVD drive
DVD drive uses laser light or electromagnetic waves on the optical disk for writing or reading features. The optical disk drives come in different speeds of writing and reading ratings. They are available as compact disks, DVD’s or blu ray disks and all of them have the capability of carrying hefty sum of data.
Need of DVD drivers
DVD drive has become a prime component of the system helping the data to be saved on an external storage. However the DVD drive alone is not sufficient to make it possible but the drivers play an equally important role to make the data accessible, readable and writable. The drivers help access to information on DVD by making the DVD drive comprehend the operating system.
DVD drive issues might irritate when trying to read or write information. The issues could be many, like, the DVD drive unable to read disks. To fix that the first step would always be checking the compatibility of the disk. After confirming its compatibility open the 'Device manager' and check whether DVD drive appears in the list .If it does not follow the ASUS support manual or else go to 'Control panel', 'Start programs', and change the 'Auto play' settings. Check on the 'Ask me every time' setting. To detect whether it is drive or disk, try other DVD disks. If the system is unable to open other disks than it has to be a problem with the drive. Open the 'Command' prompt and try 'Disport and list volume' command. Following the 'Device manager' window, right click on 'DVD drive uninstall' and reinstall the drive. If the issue is still unresolved, try out the 'System and security' window under 'Control panel', to troubleshoot computer problems. The second last step would be System restore. At times the DVD drive gets stuck inside and to troubleshoot that, it is essential to eject the drive to retain the disk and smooth operation of the DVD drive. To eject the drive open 'My computer', right click on the drive and select the option 'Eject'. Restart the computer and press the manual eject button in the front panel of the DVD drive. If it still does not open up, switch off the complete system, disconnect the power cables and search for the small hole which must be just below the drive. Get a paper clip to put inside. Open the system panel and disconnect the power cable between the SMPS and the drive and restart the computer.
