More information please. What is happening? Tray doesn't open? Not seen by Windows? Error messages? The more information you can give, the more likely someone can help you.

Dvd cd rom cannot burn files


If your drive is truly just a ROM drive, then all it can do is read. Most systems today ship with DVD-RW drives, but yours might be read-only. Some systems came with combo drives that would burn CDs but only read DVDs. If you find you can burn files onto CD but not DVD, that could be why.

If your system has a DVD-RW drive, it's not unusual for them to develop the strange problem that they can burn one type of disc but not the other. This is because of the optical system, which is like two systems in one package to handle the two kinds of media.

If the drive has been working properly and now just won't burn at all, make sure you have the settings correct in whatever burning software. Then replace the drive. New drives are so inexpensive now that if they stop working it's not worth any effort to try fixing them.

HELP MY COMPUTER WONT READ ANY CD'S EXCEPT A DVD,, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?? ANY HELP


hi

you have either one of these ..

5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read

EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed

make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds

if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .


go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .

if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself

i hope this helps

My Drive is not reading any CD I put in it


Optical drive problems

NOTE: High-speed optical drive vibration is normal and may cause noise, which

does not indicate a defect in the drive or the media.

NOTE: Because of different regions worldwide and different disc formats, not all

DVD titles work in all DVD drives.

Problems writing to a CD-RW or DVD+/-RW

CLOSE OTHER PROGRAMS - CD-RW and DVD+/-RW drives must receive a

steady stream of data when writing. If the stream is interrupted, an error
occurs. Try closing all programs before you write to the drive.

Sony Optical Drive Optiarc CD-RW CRX880A Problem!


First, I would try burning at a very slow speed to see if this helps. If it doesn't help and you think the burner is just worn out you can buy a USB burner for about $50

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

DRIVERS NEEDED


All optical drives use ATAPI drivers, these drivers are native to Windows. Physically install the DVD player and it will be recognised, depending on what type of CD and DVD burning software you have your drive may not be recognised by them.
OEM burning software will only work with the optical drive it was supplied with, retail burning software should work with any drive.
