    Have you tried to reinstall the driver?
    if so see if there is a firmware update for your cd drive
    I have had this issue in the past and a firmware update usually helps. If you have done these steps let me know and we will go from there.

Try running this patch..

or try calling Dell Tech. They normally remotely access your system and run a patch and your dvd drive will show up in Sonic/Roxio

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

check in the bios that it is your new hardrive it is seeing, and not your old one still sitting in thr bios memory, as taking out the battery doesnt always delete the cmos memory.

There shoul be an option in the bios to auto recognise the drive

This drive is a CD writer only. Although it will read DVD's it will not write to them.

You will need to replace the drive with a DVD-RW drive.


Hope this helps.

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
