    You may want to verify that the CD drive is detected in your operation system. Windows operation system you can check the Device manager and see if the drive is listed. If not then check the physical data and power cable on both sides on the IDE port on the motherboard and the back of the cd drive. Just unplug and plug the cables back in again, then boot the computer and see if it detected the CD drive.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Install LITEON 18X Super AllWhiteDVD/CD Writer&Rewriter Serial no 1502-4020-1203-0757-1127-2659


Lost your DVD Writer means ?
Does it stopped working !
Open The cabinet of the CPU and check the IDE Channel
BUS- cable if that is plugged properly.Also check if the Power plug is properly inserted to your DVD Rom,

If both are checked properly, get the lense of the DVD checked in service center. maximum of the CD/DVD problem arises due to damage in the lense. Anyways, The cost of the lense comes to be almost equal to the DVD ROM price  :)

Pease rate if this fixes your problem
