Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Windows media player cannot detect my dvds in the dvd rom player. i have windows vista


Open "My Computer".
Insert a CD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the CD-disk.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Insert a DVD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the DVD-disk.

If no changes in the icon, after the above, it's time to spend $40 to replace the "dead" drive with a new CD/DVD writer.

My DVD drive does not register any discs put into it. This is a new computer, I've had it for a week, and the DVD drive has never worked.


first just ask a question, is your dvdv drive share a data cable into your harddrive/hardisk, if true follow this instruction,
checked your data cable, power cable from your DVD drive, or try to determine if your dvd drive's jumper selection set to slave, after checked your hardrive jumper if it is set to slave change to master, hope you know how to change the jumper setup..

hope it will help.. tnx, if theres a question pm me..

Won't read dvd
