Question about KHypermedia (KDVRW8X) (20730176) DVD+RW Burner

1 Answer

Khypermedia DVD RW - not being consistent

I just installed this drive into a 1 day old new system - XP pro SP1.It worked for installing XP. Then I inserted a DVD data disk, and it autoplayed and I was able to use the drive/disk(it worked). But then when I inserted a different disk (from same lot), the drive blinks a few times, then nothing. I try to look in the DVD drive (E:) folder and it shows previous disk's files. I tell it to refresh and nothing changes. repeat. nothing. refresh my computer. nothing. I eject and reload. light comes on for a few seconds, then nothing. repeat. light comes on for a few seconds, then nothing.  After about 5 or 6 desperate attempts at reloading the disk, light comes on for a few seconds, then continues to blink and autoplays (working again!). 
Then later its time to burn a disk. I insert a CD-R for burning and the drive acts like nothing is there. Any ideas on what I should do?

Acer 5102 with xp, It wont boot from cd.


Make the DVD your 1st option for booting. It's also your CD drive but is identified as the DVD RW. Once this is made your default (make sure you accept and save the change before exiting) with your installation disk in the drive, boot up and it will read off the disk and prepare your system for install. If your disk is bootable, this will work.

I don't know how to overwrite the stuff I have on my khypermedia with new things!


With any RW media you don't overwrite, you must erase disc first,then the disc will be empty and you can write new.You must have a funtion on your burner that asks erase.Try right click on the drive a pop up menu should give you the choice to erase.Good Luck.

External USB DVD-RW


Hi Nick,
this may be a driver conflict issue, either with your factory fitted drive.
try going into system/device manager and see if its in there, click remove or uninstall, reboot and plug the drive in again, go through the add new hardware wizard if need be.
the other suggestion, is to remove all USB devices from The device manager, reboot and the system will re-install the USB port drivers.

Helloo

I Dont Think Anyone Gets An Installation Disc With A ROM

Anyway U Should Just Plug It In (The Drive) And It Should Plug and Play Function. If You Are Running Vista or XP

OtherWise If A box Appears That Cannot Locate Driver Or Insert Installation Disc Like In Vista Just Browse My Computer From There and Put This Address to Search - YOur Win Drive

ex -: C:/Windows
And Search All Drivers Should Get Installed IF This Doesnt Work Just Comment Or If U Dnt Understand Just Comment On This I Have Some More Solutions...................................................................

Good Day.

Burner


Try cleaning the lens,,,
if you did that uninstall the drive, Connect it to a different IDE or SATA (depending on what type of drive it is) and verify you got the jumpers right...
Try that if its no dice try it on a different computer to ensure the drive is dead and not a problem with the computer. If its dead replace it, if it the comp. 1 do a virus scan, then 2.) do a registery scan, if that fails format and reinstall windows and the drivers.. as well as your software.. remember to backup... LET ME KNOW HOW IT PLAYS OFF.
