Check if you have both cables attached to the CD/DVD drive. There are usually 2 that needs to be connected: the SATA or IDE (that ribbon-like connector that goes right to the motherboard), and the power supply (a connector that has 4 colored lines going to the power box). Make sure they are snug, and if necessary, try changing them with others that are known to work (there should be lots of spares). If the CD/DVD light blinks or powers on upon boot, it means power line is OK, but data cable connection is bad.

Can my CD-RW/DVD Rom Drive, model # GCC4320B be replaced with a hp 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer, dvd 1270i . I bought this unit today, but the connections don't match up? I truely appreciate your time and...


This model DVD/CD writer is a SATA drive and unless your motherboard has a SATA connector then you have a slight problem. You will need to purchase a SATA controller and install it into your PCI expansion slot, then connect your new DVD/CD drive to this SATA controller. You will also need a SATA adapter power cable converter which plugs into the 4 pin power connector.

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

On my HP pavilion mx 75 my hp cd--writer will not open any easy fiX?


Hello

Well, if there is a cd stuck in the device, you might fix this problem by force ejecting the cd/DVD.

Here is how we do this:
Take a small pin, push it into the small hole near the eject button on the CD/DVD rom. While doinf this, gently pull out the trey.

If this was a stuck cd, just take it out, if there was no dc/dvd in the rom, it might be a faulty eject button. Test this by going to My Computer, right click on the CD/DVD rom andd choose to eject.

If this does not work, i would suggest thatyou buy a new drive, because it is often much cheaper than to repair.

Let me know if this work.

Kind regards
Andrea

Either you have a computer-virus that is sending "commands" to the optical drive to open/close, or you need to spend about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.
