It could be conflicting with the harddrive. If the hardrive is set to master then set the cd drive back to slave and try again.

My T3104 came with a cd burner. I upgraded it to a DVD burner. I have NEVER had a problem with it. I have several mvies and such I have made over the years. I thought OK...It's DEAD. I replaced it with...

If they were both working on separate machines, the answer must lie in how you have configured them on your PC.

Remember that your dvd/or cd drive would be the SECONDARY MASTER. If you have both cd drive and dvd drive set as master,this may cause your PC to not recognise them.

Look on the back of the cd drive and the dvd drive - at the small jumper switches, which fit onto pins. There will also be a diagram on the drive somewhere. Look for CSM C= cable select (let the computer choose which is which. M= Master, which means you set that particular drive as the secondary master. S- slave. You set whichever drive as the slave.

The drive on the end of the cable (furthest away from the motherboard) should be set as MASTER. Any other drive on that same cable should be set as slave.

CD Rom - not working

It is possible for optical drives to fail. The easiest solution would be to try and reseat all the cables and attempt to read a known good CD-ROM with data on it. It it still fails, replace it. Most likely, due to the age of the computer, it has an IDE connection, not SATA.

If you replace it don't forget to place the master/slave jumper pin in the correct position.

You must re install the burner and driver!
If it still persists and there is not a loose wire or hook up than call that burner's manufacturer cause there is a defect with it!

I have an HP pavilion pc that wont turn on

you prolly had the jumpers on the new dvd drive improperly set, you want them set to cable select for most cases.

if, on the top or bottom of the dvd drive, it does not have a diagram of which jumper is the master, slave or cable select (usually labeled, cs), then you will haver to look it up in the manual.

if you were connecting the drive to a ribbon cable that is shared with another drive, both drives on that cable must be set to cable select, or one must be set as master, and the other as slave. if there is another drive (optical or hard drive) on that cable, and it is set to the "master" position, the new drive will have to be set to "slave" OR both drives will have to be set to cable select. if you connected the optical drive (set to cable select) to the same cable as the computers primary hard drive (the drive which boots it) and the hard drive is set to master, then it may not boot, until both are set to cable select, or one is set master, and the other, slave.

the other possibility is that you have exceeded the capacity of your power supply, but that is highly unlikely.

Won't reconize DVD burner

Well, the CD ribon cable goes into the IDE 2 slot on the Mainboard and the furthest connector on the other end is the master, the second one closest to the board is the Slave connector. The CD drive has a jumper on the back between where the ribbon and the power connector go, on the case some where it should have a diagram showing the jumper setting to put it in as master or slave. Set it accordingly.

Same with Hard drives.

If the Hard drive has a diferent Cable like a SATA, then be sure to get a SATA as the new one.

Now the IDE cables may be bad check them for damage just to be on the safe side.

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n

Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.
