Hello preto,

What you probably have is bad lens. This is the main reason why DVD/Cd drives stop reading discs. You will have to replace the lens and it will be all right.

Dell E510 Missing CD & DVD Drives...nothing is working yet...


you can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :

Try cleaning with a lense cleanner cd, if it does not help then open up the drive and clean the lense by using a cotton swab like ear-bud. Do not use any chemical as it might spoil the lense. Reconnect it should work.

Samsung CD writer not detect CD


sounds like the disks you are writing are not coming out well, try burning at a lower speed, I had this problem on mine, the drive is capable of 24X but I get quite a few faulures, writing at 16x works well for me.

Ide detection


Hi there, Is the drive tray opening? If its not Then check the Power cable.If it does, does the BIOS detect the drive properly? If its not then Check your Jumpers on the Drive and Data Cable on the Drive. If you are using Windows XP and Above you do not need any drivers for it. Hope This helps.
