  • Solution: Copy the device drivers from another PC (if you have the Drivers) to a USB drive and then start your PC and install using USB (Remember, DVD Drive is not working).
  • If your DVD drive was previously working fine, then you can use System Restore to restore the current state of your pc to the previous one when your DVD drive was working.

B. Firmware Level:
  • Settings in the CMOS has disabled this device.
  • Solution: Reset to default settings
  • Your BIOS does not recognize this hardware.
  • Solution: Update your BIOS version

C. Hardware Level:
  • Power and/or Data cable conxions are loose or not connected.
  • Solution: Re-attach the cables firmly.
  • The DVD drive circuit board has been electronically damaged.
  • Solution: Test it out with a multi-tester (if you know how to), or take it to a Computer repair shop, or Electronic shop for repairs. Otherwise replace the whole drive.

Hi there,

try to detect in the CMOS set up. restart your computer in booting process press F2 or Delete tab
and check if your dvd is detected if not you should check the cable/ power connection of your dvd. and then try again.

if detected if your using vista update dvd drivers for vista and then if it is xp you have a like this if you downgrade your pc from vista to old XP. you have this problem. update to microsoft the SP2 and SP3 updates.

My acard technology pro burns dvds but the target dvds end up all scratchy like quality the pixels move and everything


is resolutions pixel problem only on the dvd disks you burn?
you might have to save the dvd to a file first then burn it to a dvd
are you copyning from another dvd or from a saved file ??
you might be burning it as data
this might be a problem with the quality of the dvd disks you are using or might be the software you are using there are lots of free burning sofrware programs on the internet
this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio or data dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

I went to burn a cd and it says my burner or software is not found


Remove the device in device manager and re-boot the computer and let it detect and install the drivers again. This usually fixes the problem unless the drive itself is bad.

Pop up says doesnt detect dvd in rom


Hi:
If your DVD drive doesn't detect a DVD, or a CD disk, And the drive still shows up when you go to the "
my computer " page , it is most likely that the DVD drive is defective, There is not a simple software fix for this, and you need to shop for a new drive. A new DVD burner can be found for approx $40 at most stores.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

Dvd rom detecting problem


You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.
