Try re-installing the driver if it has one. But you'll probably need to take it back. This sounds like a low-level hardware problem that would be hard to fix yourself. In fact, if it is a hardware problem, the store or manufacturer will probably just give you a new one or replace a part. -DJ Craig make sure it us well pluged in and that there is power being sent to the device I did not understand if there is the media you are talking about, or about the device itself. 1. If it is the media: please look to see whether the surface is clean, and if not, try to clean it up. Try again, and if it does not work, try reading in in another device. If it still does not work, probably you lost it. 2. The device: try to reboot the machine, reinstall the drivers and if it still does not work, probably it is defective and you might want to consider replacing it try going to device manager and uninstalling it. Then reboot your computer. It should recognize it and reinstall it properly. That worked for my burner.

A CD-ROM (using a player) is an input device because it holds information that is readable. There are writable and re-writable CD's which allow you to add or remove information making it an output device (storage device) as well.

A CD-ROM drive is a computer device that can read data from a CD-ROM. The drive can either be an internal or external device.

No CD-ROM means Compact Disc Read-Only Memory. CD-ROM is an input device. However, CD-RW (Compact Disc Read Write) is both a input and output device.

It is both an input and output device

at start of computer strike F2 and for setup. Now you should tick the IDE CD ROM or IDE DVD ROM drive because it is sometime disabled by the computer and now enjoy your CD's and if this does not work ,may be your CD-ROM is not high enough to run that CD(e.g. 8x CD ROM)

it means the tamagotchi is checking to see if the rom is working correctly

Yes, a CD-ROM player is a input device. It cannot accept output unless it is a reader/writer (CD-R, CD-RW).

ROM is permanent storage because you can not alter data in ROM

If the CD rom drive has stopped working properly or maybe there's some type of incompatibility issues then you might want to consider installing the newer drivers. But if the CD rom has stopped working because of a hardware issue, then installing new drivers may not help in that case. If everything appears to be working normally with your CD rom drive though, than I'd say to just leave the drivers as it as is for the time being.

ROM: Read Only Memory. Rom is memory that normally can only be read, but not written to. Types of ROM: 1. ROM: Basic, hard-coded ROM that has its data implanted at the time of manufacture. 2. PROM- Programmable ROM: Usually is manufactured as blank ROM, and can be written to 1-time by 'burning' fuse links inside the device. 3. EPROM- Erasable Programmable ROM: A PROM device that can be erased through some means. This term is not generally used, as a more-specific method of erasing is usually part of the acronym (See EEPROM and MPROM below). A chip that can be erased by applying light to a window may use this term. 4. EEPROM- Electronically Erasable Programmable ROM: This indicates that the ROM device is erasable through an electronic signal, applied to an "Erase" input. When the correct logic signal (high or low depends on manufacture of the device), the device is "erased" back to it's default state. 5. MPROM- Magnetically Erasable Programmable ROM: This is similar to an EEPROM, except that the device is erased by exposing it to a magnetic field. Another use of the term 'ROM' is CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM). This is a removable media format that is contained on an optical disk. As these discs can only be written to once, they are considered to be Read-only memory. (Note that "rewritable" disks exist...they are commonly designated as "CD-RW" and "DVD-RAM" or "DVD-RW") and would be similar to an EPROM in application.

NWB stands for non-weight bearing. Also active ROM is better than passive ROM because your patient is involved in their more in their care and also they are working their muscles more.

a computer file is software because it is part of a program and not a device (hardware) i.e CD ROM drive,hard drive

Yes- BIOS always keep in ROM because the ROM configuration never change

ROM is important because it shows how much memory you can store.

It is not an optical device. C D ROM or DVD are optical devices. Whereas a digital memory card is solid state device.
