Dvd rom not working

[qanda]This thread is about the Fujitsu DVD-ROM / CD-RW Combo Drive S series. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S6010. The notebook boots up and runs the operating system. However I cannot get the DVD rom drive to work even though the operating systems detects it and the Bios also see it. It has Windows XP Installed. :sad: please can anyone help?

Hi and Welcome!

are there any problem indicators in Device Manager?
Additionally, you may try if you can boot your computer off a bootable CD or DVD. I like Linux live CDs for that purpose, but a Windows install disc should work also.
Please note you might have to adjust the boot priority in Bios setup to allow booting from your optical drive.

many thanks Michael I will try that:)
