Dvd-rom sd-616E driver no longer recognized by


Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS, see if its recognized in there, if its not recognized then you'll need to turn the computer off and unseat and reseat the cable and the power connector to the dvd drive. Then turn on the computer again and go into the BIOS, if the dvd drive is still not recognzied then you'll need to replace the drive.

If the dvd drive is recognized in the BIOS and not in windows then you'll need to go into the system restore in windows and choose a date the last time the computer was working, it will restore your computer back to this date and reboot. At that point it should recognize your dvd drive. If it doesn't then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the drive and restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Just bought a new DVD burner, its a LG Super Multi DVD ReWriter 22x (Gh22LS40) I also had to buy a sata to IDE converter for my motherboard that has only IDE connectors on it. I can not get Windows 7 to...


ok here's what you need to do.....


first check your dvd burner if its is detected properly on your cmos. If it is located properly try to re install windows 7 again i've encountered this problem before and i just reinstalled windows 7 and it worked like charm.

If the dvd burner is not detected on cmos try to check the jumper settings for both hard disk and dvd burner one orf the other should not be on the same setting ex. if your disk drive is on master you should set the dvd on slave and vice versa. then redo the first step. hope this helps

Dvd/CD RW+- not recognizing Dvd disk. CD is fine. Gateway GM5407E only DH16W1P161C on player. Vista Premium 32 OS


open the control panel and click on the system folder, then the hardware tab, then the device manager (you are looking for the cd/dvd rom drives).
When you find it right click on it and check all the tabs to make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it turns out and we can take it further if we need too.

Cd/dvd burning drive ''e'' does not identify an empty disk for burn


When your computer is in POST have you tried entering your CMOS to check that your system is actually recognizing that the drive is physical? If not try that and then check to make sure that the jumpers on the drives are set properly and then reinstall your software and this should correct your problem. Good Luck

Non system message


Your boot sequence is probably not set to boot from the Hard drive first. Remove any floppy disks/CD's from their drives and try to boot it.

If you are still getting the message then you have files that are corrupt on your hard drive.

I have 2 Gateway laptop computers and in one of them the CDROM Drive got fried. I would like to replace it with the one from the other laptop. How do I exchange them?


Before beginning, review electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions. Disconnect the power adapter, the modem and network cables, and remove the battery before removing the hard drive bay cover. Remove the RAM door whichi s secured by one screw. Now loosen the two hard drive screws and pull the DVD/CD-RW drive from the laptop. Replace the cover before restoring power or reconnecting the modem and network cables.
