    Hi. First, I need a little clarification before I start with possible solutions.
    When you say "dvd disc" do you mean a new DVD disc drive or a new software/blank disk that isn't being read by your computer?

    Thanks, Rae

I have a client that has problems booting up. I tried to do a clean install of windows 7 on it but it tells me that it needs the CD/DVD driver for the drive.. I believe that it is unnecessary because the...


Hello,

There's still a need for you to install the driver enable for it to work fine. You don't only need the operating system's disc but you also need the drivers and utilities disc that came with the computer when your client bought it. However, if your client cannot find the drivers and utilities disc, you can go to the website of the computer's manufacturer so that you can download the compatible drivers for the computer. You have to select the model and the operating system that it runs which windows 7.

I hope this helps.

DRIVER DISC - NOT RECOGNISED BY COMPUTER ON WHICH I,M TRYING TO INSTALL


CD/DVD player is no good (does it play other discs and are they DVD or CD that it plays, could be a dirty laser use cleaning disc), the disc is not compatible with your player (DVD disc in CD player), corrupt disc, no auto-run on disc, no files on disc. The list is quite long. have you tried to read the disc in my computer screen (presuming your using windows) as the files might be in a compressed format (.zip or .rar) in which case you might have to unpack them. If the disc is not recognised at all try it on a different machine (a friends) and see if it will read on that if it does then copy the files to a new disc and try again. other than that you can always go the the makers web site and download any drivers from there support area's. Any further help required let me know.

Should I use DVD+R or DVD-R discs with HP S3700Y computer


You can use either but if I was you I would use the dvd+r discs because if you make your own movies and you decide you don't want to play them on the computer, it will be compatible with your other new dvd players out there if you have one or decide to buy one in the future.

I've seen in the past where dvd-r discs aren't as compatible with regular dvd players.

Stopped recognising dvd drive


Hi there. There may not be anything wrong it. CD/DVD drives use Class Filters, instead of the usual drivers that we would associate most computer hardware with. These are installed when the Operating System is setup, as Class Filters only add functionality of the drive with the Operating System. They are also available from the motherboard manufacturer's website, (these are known as Motherboard Drivers and Chipset Drivers). They can also be obtained via the Toshiba website here:

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK

All you need to do, is select your notebook type and model. Then scroll down till you find either the DVD_RAM driver and/or Chipset Driver that go with your Operating System. Download them and install. This should correct the problem.

Computer DVD/CD Drive does not recognise any discs


The most likely cause is a faulty DVD drive. Replacing the DVD drive is fairly simple.

You can buy a new one online for around $25 including shipping. If you need help finding a drive or installing a drive, I can help with that. Just let me know.

Hey,

looking at the details you have posted about your cd drive, its a cd burner with dvd reading cability.

can you post me the model of your drive to confirm this, it says on top of the drive, maybe on the front.

or simply try a CD instead of a DVD

Thanks,

Bought DVD-Rs, 'Verbatim', 16x for Dell Dimension 4600, driver Samsung CDRW/DVD SM-352F Computer does not recognise the dvd Wrong purchase?


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.

Slow burner


well what you can try is
1.) Cleaning your registery out
2.) deleting all temp files
3.) defragmenting your registery

to do all the above you can use a product know as tune up utilities aviable here www.phazeddl,com type yune up in the search box and search it

4.) defragmenting your harddrive
to to this go into my computer
right click on local disc and click properties.
clicl tools the defrag

5 delete your preftech files
they are located in c:\windows\prefetch

6 empty your recycle bin

7 restart


ensure you have 16x media and your burningspeed is set to 16x

4x media means you can only burn at 4 8x at 8 or below, 16x at 16 or below

if all fails then you need to format and reinstall
