I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

Installing ATAPI DVDW


This has happened to me so many times, with Vista and XP. I had to go on another computer and download the drivers from the website for my PC model, and download them and put them on a flashdrive and install them on my PC I had the issue with. They worked than, I had an issue with my Ethernet port. So hopefully this helps.

I want to replace CD drive on Dell Dimension 8200. My options are serial ATA, parallel ATA & ATAPI. Which one do I need?


Hello,

This computer has 2 IDE connectors. These are parallel ATA connectors.

See: Dell Dimension 8200 Specs

If you get a drive, look for IDE on the package. IDE, PATA and ATAPI are near synonomous. They use a 40 pin flat ribbon cable to connect.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Plugged in an usb to ata/atapi bridge(ext HD)


There are a couple of possiblities but first you have to try the external hard drive into another computer, if this works then you may have a problem with USB drivers or the IRQ

if the external hard drive didnt work with other computer, then it is possible that the ext hard drive does not have working partition and or a logical drive,

to check this right click you computer icon then click Manage.

On the left side select Disk Management, then you should be able to see all your harddrives even the cd rom drive from there right click and create partion for any un partitioned drive.

Dvd driver gone


do one thing ...
click on start > right click on my computer > properties > hardware > device manager > and go under cd/dvd and see if the drive is listed there and if it is there right click on it and uninstall it and than go under the option that says IDE ATA/ ATAPI and uninstall the secondary channel and than restart the system hopefully you will get the drive back if that doesnt work out than open the tower and disconnect and reconnect the data and the power cable attached to the non working drive and if that doesnt work the change the power connector which should be an extra one in the cabinet and than also change the data cable and if that too doesnt work than ur drive gone bad
change it

CD Drive not working at all


If its the only CD Drive on that IDE cable it wouldn't be set as slave, would be on Master.

Yes you can go to http://www.driverguide.com you can download updated drivers for IDE and SATA on your PC.I checked on Acer support but there website isnt't working correctly for me.

Try updating the drivers, and try both drives again one at a time.

Need to install my new dvd writer on my dell dimension 9200 pc. The plugs are different. now what?


If the plugs are different most likely you bought a SATA drive. If your MB doesnt support SATA then there really isnt any use for that drive, i would return it and purchase an IDE drive, chances are thats what you have. Good Luck!!!
