How can I tell if my comuter has a DVD/CD drive or just a CD drive?

I can play CD's in my compter but when I put a DVD in the same drive, nothing happens. This same DVD will play on my husband's computer.

    I'll have to get back with you. I'm at work and the computer in question is at home.

    I don't think it is a DVD drive. The model number is HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8481B.

    Thanks.

Normally, the front edge of the Drive tray will indicate CD, CD-RW, DVD or DVD-RW.

You can also check in Device Manager inside Windows (Press the Windows Flag Key+Pause Key, Hardware Tab, Device Manager button) Click the + next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives, and see what model drive is listed. If DVD isn't part of the drive model, it is a CD drive only.

You G900 comes with a software CD, DVD or a mini disc. Insert it in the computer CD/DVD drive and install the software. If you cannot find the disc in the packing then you must download this software from the sony erricson website.

How do you take a moive on the compter to a c d


I assume you mean a DVD. A DVD would be able to be used to watch the video in DVD Players and other computers. However, burning it to a CD would be usuable to as it would just act as a storage media but wouldn't be able to be played in a standard DVD player. To burn a DVD/CD you must first have a CD/DVD Burner. It is a CD Drive witht he capability to burn CD/DVD. Then you can just use any video burning software, such as Windows Media Player or iMovie (on mac) to burn the video on to your CD/DVD.

I have a TSST Corp. CD/DVDW TSH552L. The device will not play cd's or DVD's but will open. There is nothing in the "E" folder when I open it. I don't know if I need drivers or files to make it operational...


Put your Windows product CD/DVD into the drive.
Reboot your computer, and tell it to _first_ try to boot from the CD/DVD drive, to see if it reads the disk.

If not, the drive is dead. Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.
