Hp dvd 1040 wont be recognize my PC..Someone help me!


Power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Failure to recognize CD ROM or USB ports


  1. Run Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor
  3. In the right pane, double click on the Start value name.
  4. Change the value data to 4 to disable the removable USB mass storage device drive access
  5. 5.
  6. To revert and re-enable the drive access for removable USB mass storage device driver, change back the value data for Start to its original default of 3.
The change will take effect immediately to block any USB mass storage device such as USB flash drive, USB key and portable harddisk from been used in the system, while still allowing hardware components to work properly via USB connection. The hack works in most Windows operating system such as Windows Vista, XP, Windows Server 2008, 2003 and 2000.
For user who dare not to modify the registry manually, simply download the following registration entries file to enable or disable the USB drive. Extract the downloaded content in .ZIP format, and then double click on the .REG file to open and apply or merge the registry values to system.

Wull not play commercial DVD on DVD player installed


Some viruses disable removable drives, so be sure that your antivirus is current an you have done a complete scan.

If it recognizes that it is a DVD, the software might have to be reinstalled. You can try opening the DVD player manually, it may recognize it then. There are several firmware updates on the dell site for the DVD drives.

Try booting the computer with a restore disk (just abort if it actually starts). If the drive does not recognise dvds (on boot and if you open the computer icon and see if the disk shows up) as a last resort before replacement, you might try a commercial drive cleaner.

Dell dimension b110 not reading cd drive


Do you have any device drivers loaded on your system that may be interfering? Such as ANYDVD or some other app? Does this happen with data DVD's as well as movies?

Have you tried starting your DVD player application and then inserting the disk into the drive?

One thng you may want to try is going into device manager and deleting all IDE devices, then deleting the IDE controllers themselves and rebooting. This should allow Windows XP (I assume it is XP) to re-recognize and re-initialize the hardware. Then you may want to try re-installing the motherboard chipset drivers (there should be a driver disk that came with your machine, hopefully) just to make sure they are all in good shape.

Cannot copy files using BYTECC Bt-300


check the jumpers on the old drive and see if its powering on or spining up! some of these usb adapters just dont work on old drives if all else faisl open your system and connect it to your pata bus if you have one! if not then use another computer to extract your data and put it on another storage media e.g. flash drives ext hardddisk memory card or dvd or cd disk!

CD/DVD thinks there's no disk in.


- mass storage device in = SD card.

- The DVD/CD can't recognize any type of disk inserted: Replace the CD-DVD unit, it is with problem.
