    I had the same problem with a different external drive....turned out that there was something jamming the opening mechanism (a playing card thanks to my 5 year old) the re is a little hole in the front panel...try pshing a pin into it to release the door mechanism and look to see if anything is jammed in there

    post the brand and model of the drive, we can try and find you an updated support site. If that fails, you'll likely have to buy a replacement

I need to fix a problem with my Sony DVD RW DRU- 180A. I get error code 39. The computer doesn't seem to recognize the DVD player.


More than likey a fault in the DVD player.

Did it work recently?? If so then probably faulty.

Check internal cable and even try another one, I have had the occasional cable fail.

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

My dvd-RW wont read any of my dvd's except plain


Hi,
set it up on a seperate IDE Channel, or change from master to slave. Or Vice-Versa.
Secondly you could try re-installing windows 2000, this should repair any corrupt or missing drivers.
Finally see the manufacturers website, to see if any firmware upgrades are available.

Or else try this

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


Hope This helps...

thank u
