Question about Compaq Refurbished 7 EVO N410C DVD/CD-RW COMBO DRIVE (BULK PLEASE CONTACT SALES) (261741933) CD-ROM Drive
Can anyone tell me why my cd/dvd rom cannot read my cd's or dvd's and why I cannot burn phots on to a cd-r or burn a movie I downloaded onto my dell dimension E510. I have a HL-DT-ST-DVD+--RW GWA4164B. Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Hi, A couple of possibilities: With a known good DVD with files inserted into your Compaq CR-589, double click in your My Computer, double click in your CD/DVD. 1. If it opens and displays the content, then there is nothing wrong with your DVD but the auto start feature of your OS was disabled, enable auto start; 2. If in My Computer or in Device Manager, the DVD doesn't show up, then it can be hardware problem, IDE/power cable problem, bios did not recognize DVD device, replace if and as needed; 3. If the DVD is in My Computer but will not display the files or contents, possibly defective DVD, replace. Hope this worksa out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
