just select your OS to download your drivers, but jelly i think DVD drive is inbuilt in PC or laptop used to regoginesed it automatically , i think there is some connection problem in your dvd drive better check it using hardware eng. that's more safe friend.
Good luck ! if you think your problem solved don't forget to rate
With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test.
cd drives are plug n' play, check your device manager see if the device is working properly, if its not then delete the device and restart pc to redownload the drivers. please contact me if it is sowing that the device is working, I have another solution for you to try.
The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software
It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.
Check device manager in control panel under
hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow
check). The most likely casue is that your DVD burning software (not the microsoft programs) did not install properly. Find out the exact info about yours by downloading a freeware program called Belarc Advisor (Googe it),
Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They
aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning
program. After you find out what burning
software you have-- you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's
website, if it came with the computer, as it may be a special program not related to the burning
software if you purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their
website for downloads or upgrades,and that should get you going.
This is a problem with the DVD Writer model.
SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs.
But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs.
It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs.
There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
