Follow the steps given below

Connect the External CDRW to the PC and you should be able to find the green light glowing and CDRW should make some noise like spinning.

Press the Eject button the CDRW and It should open. Put in the Software disk that you have received from your PC manufacturer and it should display the contents on the PC Screen

If not, Click on START button - Click on My Computer - You should find the CDRW displayed in Drives Location.

Double click on it and it should display the CD Contents.

This indicated the CDRW is working.

When cdrw is inserted into d12 digital recorder msg display says no disc drive and after about 20mins whole thing freezes until cdrw is removed

try using a different type/brand of cdrw you may have a bad batch of cheap cdrw as for the freezing if this does not fix the problem try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
good luck with this

QPS-525 usb CDRW - quit working. Pwr Supply OK.

Check to see which LED is blinking, the one on the cdrw or the one just below it showing theres power to the enclosure? If theres proper power to the enclosure the green led light below the cdrw should stay solid green. If you have a blinking led light on the cdrw itself, you may wish to disassemble the enclosure and ensure all the short wire leads to the converters pcb are still properly connected and that theres nothing loose. Make sure the IDE cable is properly seated as well as the molex power connector.

A blinking led on the cdrw may signify a problem with the drive itself, since it should not be blinking unless its being accessed by the computer. You could also try reloading the drivers for it whether youre running it on a mac or windows machine. Perhaps change the usb port youre connecting too as well. Before sending the enclosure to the trash, try another cdrom drive connected inside of it. That should be the definitive test to solve whether its the fault of the enclosure or burner itself. Hope these troubleshooting tips help.

Driver problem with DVD/CDRW device driver

Hi sandystell,

Well normally in Windows XP the DVD/CDRW drive won't need anymore drivers, since Windows automatically installs one for it. I assume the problem you're having is that the drive is not able to read CDs/DVDs or burn a disc, correct?

If that is the case you can actually follow this microsoft KB article:

This will give you indepth help on what to do. I would recommend that you do the removal of the upper filters and lower filters in the registry.

You can test if the optical drive works in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 on startup and choosing Safe Mode, then logging into yourr account. See if the disc is read in Safe Mode, if it does, then you have a program that is conflicting with the drive. I would recommend that you run MSCONFIG, goto Startup tab and disable most if not all of the startup items, then click on APPLY then OK.

The next thing is running the diagnostics for the computer to see if there any reported hardware problems. Now if all tests passed, the next step is reseating the optical drive (if possible) check the computer manual on how to do procedure, otherwise you may have to call up Dell Technical Support.

Now you may have to replace the drive itself since it could be defective now.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Problem on burning CDRW

run the nero drive speed first before burning in your files, if your cd in a RW or rewritable, just erase it and burn again the data's that you want.
