Trouble with Dvd player in Dell Inspiron 530

Find the small pin hole on DVD player and use a straightened paper clip to manually eject in case there is a stuck disc.

Use system restore to roll back your system. Look for a restore point longer than the three days.

I don't see a correlation between the two because the system should work even you don't have an optical drive (CD\DVD).

I have a Sansui VRDVD4005, I have had it for many years now and was wondering if you could update any drivers on it, and if so, how do I install them or load them onto the DVD/VCR Combo player?

I'm sorry, but the Sansui VRDVD4005 was not designed to be upgraded or updated and Sansui no longer has parts for it. I have seen sites on the internet in the past where this machine was fixed by replacing the DVD drive, (it used a computer dvd drive), but don't have any details on this.
I hope this is helpful to you as you decide what to do next.

Once saved user details that may be irretrivable either on the computers hard drive or an external disk drive or USB port, the computer should be powered off momentarily.

Dvd-rom sd-616E driver no longer recognized by

Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS, see if its recognized in there, if its not recognized then you'll need to turn the computer off and unseat and reseat the cable and the power connector to the dvd drive. Then turn on the computer again and go into the BIOS, if the dvd drive is still not recognzied then you'll need to replace the drive.

If the dvd drive is recognized in the BIOS and not in windows then you'll need to go into the system restore in windows and choose a date the last time the computer was working, it will restore your computer back to this date and reboot. At that point it should recognize your dvd drive. If it doesn't then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the drive and restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Probably just needs replaced. Sometimes one can clean it and it will last a little longer. It's an easy job to replace it. Just download the manual for your model from the maufacturer's website to see how to gain access to the inside of the computer. Replacement fans are available at places like CompUSA or similar stores, or you can order one on the internet. Just take the existing fan out of the case and take it to the store with you to be sure you get the right one. Take care about static electricity, as it can zap your components, especially the motherboard and the memory sticks. Touch the computer case before touching any parts inside the computer.

If you don't feel comfortable changing the fan out, a computer repair place can probably do it for not much.

DVD-Ram No Longer Reading Disks

If it's a drive where you can see the laser you need to slide it to one side or the other. I think it's because it's out of sync.
