If you remove the drive and then boot the laptop, it will not be there. The BIOS sorts that out.

SOURCE: can we change dell latitude c610 floppy disc drive for advd drive

Hello,

Yes you can. On the bottom of the laptop there are 2 slide releases, one releases the battery the other is for the multi bay. With the computer off just slid the release and the drive will slide out forward. You can pick up dvd drives on Ebay and other sites for about $30.00 and you can even get dvd burners for your machine. If windows is running you can look in the bottom right corner and click on the eject hardware icon and stop the floppy or cd/dvd drive and eject the drive with the machine on. If the laptop is on you do need to stop the drive before you eject it or you can damage the drive and the laptop. I hope this helps you, if so please rate my solution.

Computer will not boot hd and dvd/cd drives


first check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one that contains Windows.
check that there are no CDs or DVDs 3 1/2 inch floppy discs
in the CD/DVD,3.1/2 floppy drives ,and no removable usb drives plugged in to the usb ports

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


hope this helps

Hi there,
I recommend that you upgrade to a newer technology. The flash drives and other usb CD/DVD drives are newer and "plug and play" without much hassles. ....besides they carry more in terms of storage. Slightly more expensive, but less trouble.

Kind Regards

Hi! can you help me with my problem? my toshiba sd-c2502 don't read any disk. when put in a disk it try to read it and when i want to open it tells to enter a disk in. I want to update the firmware of...


One solution would be to go to the manufacturers site and make sure you have the latest firmware update. If your floppy doesn't work, then apparently you are aware of this, and your floppy drive is defective, correct? Moving on then, you can also use a flash drive which are pretty inexpensive right now. It will plug right into your USB port. Another means of getting it into your laptop is to send it to yourself email. Now, if you cannot get passed the need for this to on floppy, then you simply need to get a new floppy drive.

Now, assuming you do indeed have the latest firmware loaded, the problem is the fact of this drive being a bit inferior. It is a dust magnet. Installed in a laptop, it picks up any and every bit of dust that so happens to venture thru.
Solution :. I took the DVD/CD-Rom out, removed the alluminium plate that is held on with 3 little screws and inspected it. I found alittle dust on the DIVERTER(?) mirror/lens. I blew if off, cleaned the primary lens. I reassembled it, put it back in the laptop and now it works fine on ALL CD's. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN CLEANING THE PRIMARY LENS. BE VERY GENTLE. If this fixes your problem and if you can Please pass this on. It saved me ALOT of money. Almost forgot, the ERROR Message that I would get, before I fixed it was "WINDOWS CANNOT READ FROM DISK.THE DISK MIGHT BE CORRUPTED OR IT COULD BE USING A FORMAT THAT IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS. I hope this fixed your problem.
