Question about Dell (1Y414) DVD+RW Burner

1 Answer

CD burner Dell Dimension 9150 Computer purchased December 2005 The problem is that my CD burner will not recognize when I put a blank CD-R CD in it to burn. It will recognize a CD-RW. But several times when I have tried another brand of CD-R's, the first few I burn will work fine, and then the drive will no longer recognize the disc. I was originally using a Sonic program, but have also tried Real Player. I have the same problem with both programs.

    I have the same problem. Paid 1700.00 for this computer and the burner worked only twice before it began to not recognize the disk. Very frustrating

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.

I need to reinstall ethernet driver on my desktop but it will not connect to the internet.

If this problem is in direct relation to the heading,
Dell Dimension E510 Desktop PC, here is the download page for the Ethernet driver,

Download to the computer you are on now, if it has a CD burner optical drive.
Burn this driver to a blank CD-R disk.

(I advise do not use a CD-R/W disk, because it can be written over. Do not put anything else on this disk but driver/s. Label the center of the disk)

Now start the Dell, wait for Windows to fully load, put this disk in the optical drive.
Left-click on Start>My Computer.

Go to to the drive letter that corresponds with the optical drive the CD disk is in, and Double-click on the drive letter.

Follow the Installation Wizard's instructions.

My CD-ROM drive is not recognizing blank CD-R's. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drives, but it has not worked. Any suggestions?

A CD-ROM will never recognize a Blank CD-R. It is a blank CD. If you want it to burn to the disk you will need to purchase a CD-Burner, and then install the burning program that comes with the CD-Burner.
