Hi, this issue may occur if the firmware is not installed. Please Click on start>>> run >>> type devmgmt.msc and hit enter.

Look under DVD drive. You should find the name of the driver. Search for available firmware at support.dell.com by either entering the service tag of the computer or by product type. That should make it work.

If not, try in safe mode. If that too does not work, call Dell tech and mention the steps and ask for a replacement. YOu will get it in no time if system is under warranty

Keep getting "Target Overflow" error message, even


you may have a bad ROM. If you have a multiple target unit, switch the source from the ROM to one of writers and try copying that way, if it copies then it confirms that the ROM is defective.
If you have a Single target unit, check your master disc under disc info, depending on which controller you have it should be under utility or disc info. Once in disc info it should tell you the size of your master disc, for DVD-R it should be under 4488MB, for DVD+R it should be under 4482MB. Then double check the master in the PC just to confirm.

I am trying to install windows service pack 1. I keep getting an error code: 0x00F0826. Can you tell me what this means and how to fix it? I am running windows vista basic. 32-bit. Thanks.


if there error appeared while windows copying files then disc OS or the DVD ROM might be faulty. Try to test first the ODD if it is faulty. Use the drivers and utilities cd from dell to test the DVD ROM. If DVD ROM reads fine the drivers disc then try the OS disc to a different computer if it can load vista files. if not the OS disc has the problem. If no issues with OS disc and DVD Rom then it might be the HDD.

Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.
