Just recently, I have put a CD in my CD-ROM and it has not auto-started or even spun. the light indicator does not go on what do i do? The CD is a Wearnes 820

When you reboot your PC does the CDrom spin up/light come on? Does your BIOS detect it on boot?

If not then you should probably start by checking the cables for the CDrom.

...also check your 'Device Manager' to ensure correct configuration.

[right click My Computer > Properties > Device Manager tab - or press WIN key + PAUSE/BREAK > Device Manager]

Double click CD-ROM Drive > double click the device (Wearnes 820) > click Settings tab > ensure the settings under 'Options' are correct > click Apply/Okay.

Cheers!!!

Be warned that some older cdroms will not read cdr's,cdrw's and especially the high speed cdrw's. Does it still read normal cd's?
