If you are referring to the overall act of getting the hardware and installing it, you generally remove the appropriate drive bay cover where you want the burner to get installed, put it in, and line it up evenly. There should be two small screw holes on each side of the burner, and you will need to line these up with either the holes or slots on the side of the drive bay and place screws in them in order to hold the burner in place. For an IDE connection, you will need the IDE cable where you have the capability to connect two devices together and into the motherboard. One drive will connect to the end of the cable and one to the center. You will also need to connect a power connector from the power supply to the burner. There should be a male connection on the back of the burner. Usually you will set your jumpers where one player is the master and one is the slave, but in my experience I just set them both as masters. I have never had a problem doing this. Sometimes you will need to install the software drivers that come with the burner, but if you have a newer operating system, it should auto detect without you having to do more. Other than that, you just need good burning software.

Burner working


What operating system do you have? The drive is fully supported by XP onwards and should be auto detected. You may have to delete the current driver in device manager reboot & Windows should install a compatible driver. (Start > right-click computer > properties > Device Manager > DVD Drives > Highlight faulty drive and delete > reboot)

Also, WinXP does not allow you to burn DVDs unless you have appropriate burning software installed (e.g. Nero)

My burner keep saying bad disc about every 2 disc


It may be because the disks are being burnt in quick sucession, not allowing your computer to clear the buffer or temp memory of the drive in order for the new data to be burnt to disk to be buffered.

Or your computer is too slow.

Allow a bit of time between each burn, say 15min.

Take care!

My laptop dell d610 dont have a cd/dvd+RW it cannot burn cd or dvd, i want to download cd/dvd+Rw to enable to burn


It sounds like the problem is your hardware, the current optical drive you have installed cannot burn disks, not matter what software you download you will not be able to do this without the correct hardware. You will need to buy a new drive that is Read/Write capable from a local computer store.

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Installed a new dvd burner for Hp computer. Running Windows XP. Installed Nero 8 Software. Door doesn't always open when button is pushed or after burning a dvd. Computer also has another cd/dvd drive....


it has to do with a new hardware installation process....check IDE cable that they are correctly connected and try to check system setup so that the CMOS identifies both, primary & secondary devices....if not, u need to install a driver for the newly installed one....

DVD-RW Name Changes When Blank DVD Inserted


p3, Did you try burning the DVD and it failed? You should try upgrading the firmware on DVD drive. http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=ODD+Products&typecode=300400&subtype=DVD+Writer&subtypecode=300405&model=TS-H552U&filetype=FM&language= Or, your just interested why Windows is calling your expensive DVD burner a measley CD Drive? Your Burner is an all-in-one.(I think) It plays(and burns) cd's and dvd's. Whatever program you use to burn has not informed Windows of its true intentions yet...Which is to burn a dvd or a cd. It doesn't know what you are burning until something tells it to. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
