First of all, the requirements to run this dvd are:
1.55 GB with HP clips on DVD-rom or 3.66 Giga Bytes full hard-drive install
Memory: 128 MB
Make sure you have at LEAST this much space and memory before an install. A little more is needed to run the dvd.


PS Have you tried another dvd in the player?

I just bought a used computer to replace my current one, but when i try to start it it ask me to insert boot disk i inserted a microsoft disk and it starts and works ok but if i turn it off and take thisk...


The operating system (Windows probably) was deleted on the hard drive since it would not have belonged to you by license. You will have to install some OS to the hard drive either from Windows disks you already own or some Linux variant. Right now, the needed startup files are not present on the hard drive.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive


With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Driver needed for TSST Corp CDDVDW TS-H653N SCSI CdRom Device please. DVD drive shown in My Computer, and MS says I have the correct driver for this device. But, it doesn't work.


If the computer still cannot read a disc, there may be a problem with the drive. Go to method 3 to troubleshoot the CD or DVD drive. If the computer can read the other disc, there is a problem with original CD or DVD. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. Method 3: Try a different disc drive If the disc is clean and undamaged, check whether there is a problem with the drive. To do this, follow these steps: If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer. If the other CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be a problem with your CD or DVD drive. Go to method 5. If the other CD or DVD drive cannot read the disc, the disc may not be compatible with the drive. Go to method 4. Method 4: Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive. A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive. A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs. A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front. If the disc is compatible, go to method 5. If the disc is incompatible, use a compatible disc or contact the vendor for a compatible replacement. Back to the top Method 5: Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com If these methods do not resolve your issue, try the advanced troubleshooting steps in this article. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, or you might want to contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/ If methods 1 through 5 did not resolve the issue, you can follow these methods to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Method 1: Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive. To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps: Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:*.* HardDiskDrive:cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder. Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. To continue trying to isolate the problem and test the CD or DVD drive, go to method 2. Method 2: Test the CD or DVD drive in a "clean boot" state If the disc is readable and undamaged, there may be some hardware or software that is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. You can test this by inserting the disc into the drive after restarting your computer in a clean boot state. This helps you determine whether any hardware or software is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. To test this, follow these steps: Restart the computer in a clean boot state. Note For more information about how to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310353 How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state After the computer is restarted, exit all programs and applications that may be using the CD or DVD drive. First, right-click each icon in the notification area, and then click Exit. Note The notification area is located at the far right of the taskbar, near the clock. Some programs that are listed in the notification area do not have an Exitcommand. Therefore, you may have to click Quit, Close, or Disable, depending on the commands that are available for that program. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) taskmgr in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Windows Task Manager opens. Click the Applications tab. If any programs appear in the Task list, click the name of the program to select it, and then click End Task. Repeat the previous step until the Task list is empty. Close Windows Task Manager. Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be other programs preventing the drive from reading the disc. Go to method 3. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the "Next Steps" section. Method 3: Change the CD or DVD drive configuration If there are programs that are preventing the drive from reading the disc, you can try to resolve this issue by configuring the drive to run in direct memory access (DMA) mode. DMA mode is a high performance mode for transferring data to and from devices. These include CD and DVD drives. To configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode, follow these steps: Configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode. For more information about how to switch your computer's disc drive controller to DMA mode, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310751 Device settings are hard to find in Windows XP Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, you are finished. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, try to troubleshoot DVD components by using method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the “Next Steps” section. Method 4: Troubleshoot DVD problems If the advanced troubleshooting methods 1 through 3 do not resolve the issue, and you have problems specifically with a DVD drive, follow these steps to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Prerequisite You must use a DVD drive with a DVD logo on the front, not a standard CD drive. Step 1: Unplug any cables that are connected Unplug any cables that are connected to the video outputs of the computer. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, you may have problems with the video hardware installed on your computer. Contact the manufacturer of the video hardware for support or for a replacement. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 2. Step 2: Update the DVD driver Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain an updated driver for the DVD drive, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the driver. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated driver. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 3. Step 3: Obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the decoder. Note Many video adapters help decode DVD discs. However, the video adapter may not fully decode a DVD movie. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated DVD decoder. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, make sure that the sound card in the computer is compatible with the DVD drive. To do this, contact the manufacturer of the sound card. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive.

I am trying to load on D;/setupexe but it will not install.


I'm presuming this is an optical disk (CD or DVD) containing (printer?) software you wish to install ... right?

If so, are you trying to launch the "setup.exe" file from a cmd/Command Prompt shell by typing it in, then "enter"? If so, the most glaring problem is typographical error ... "D;/setupexe" > should be "D:setup.exe"

If not the above, does any installer dialog (i.e., window) display soon after inserting the disk into the drive? If the disk does indeed contain a software installation package with a "setup.exe" file, then this likely indicates "autoplay" is deactivated for that particular drive. If this is the case, it can be corrected by right-clicking the subject drive icon and modifying the settings on the "Autoplay" tab. Or alternatively accomplshed using "TweakUI". It's available at http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. However, get this handy and dandy Microsft utility regardless of this situation if you don't already have it.

This leaves the last scenario: Are you maually trying to launch the file by clicking on it? If so, what error dialog(s) are you encountering and what EXACTLY does it say?

TIP: A very rudimentary way to test the readability of a CD/DVD disk is to insert it into a drive, then launch "Command Prompt" and type in "DIR /S DRIVE_LETTER:" (without quotes), then hit enter. EXAMPLE: DIR /S D:
If it successfully displays every file on the disk (implies it's read), it's a fair indication of A-OK readable status.

That's the best shot in the dark I can make with the limited amount of info provided in the question. Please respond with additional info/feedback in order to help zero in on defining the problem.

DVD/Cd Burner won't run programs.


All you need to do is that put the CD in the CD/DVD drive that you have access and not properly closed. For example here is the situation. I put a cd installer with a file named in the cd setup.exe and it is located in drive D: i access the file setup.exe and I run it or install.. then I decided not to install the programs.. what I did is that is did not cancel the installation but rather I immediately open my cd/dvd drive and get the cd..

What are going to happen? the installation is in the process and I did not cancel the installation properly. In the installation logs of the windows it still have to install the programs but it cannot find the file setup.exe that is located in the Drive D:.

Try to put a cd in your cd/dvd drive with file named setupexe on the cd.. that will solve your problems. TY
