Have you checked your connections, does it power on(refering to the drive meaning can u eject?). if yes then you might be having a software issue where the driver for your new drive is not installed yet therefore you OS does not know the drive is connected. on vista do your windows updates. on vista, go start, right click on computer, choose manage, device manager, at the top of the tree is the name of your unit. right click on it and choose scan. after scanning if you unit is an unknown device, it i will have a "?" mark on it. which means the driver has to be installed. in case you dont know any other ways to install drivers, but using ur cd drive, i want to let you know that there is always someone who put it online, or you can go to the manufacturer's website lookup support and find your hardware and download the drivers for it. After that you OS should work fine.

If all i said there did not solve your issues, then you have a bad connection, or your setup is wrong, open the computer again and redo your installation and get a professional to do the job. I am confident you can do it yourself, no need to pay extra box to get that done.

Return the one that does not work, get another one in case all my advices did not work.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

I have WINXPSP3 on my PC and it won't find the driver for the GSA-h21n model DVD-RW drive that can with the DELL computer. How do I reinstall this drive?

You should not need a driver for that unless you are running an OS older than windows XP.

It should be plug-and-Play (power down first of course)

As far as light scribe, that depends on the CD/DVD buring software to support.

Hope this helps.

CD-rom can not read or burn, but DVD-reader in

Try to ship it back where you purchase that device cause the hardware device has the problem maybe a factory defect then you should ship it back. Try to used light scribe utility program on your writer cause it will help your dvd/cd device read properly.

I cant get movies I made on msn movie maker to download on to the light scribe cd. Also the pictures cd's wont play on an independent machine, only on the computer.

Maybe you'll need a cd/dvd burner like Nero 9 or maybe the Nero 7 would do...
that's the best application for burning movies you make... and slide show pictures...
be also aware of the formats you used in saving your work in msn movie maker.... use (.avi) in save as type:

i hoped it helped you tnx...

My cd/dvd combo driver will no longer burn discs

Instead of looking for repair programs, try looking for drivers for that specific cd/dvd drive. It may simply need a new driver.
