How do i insert a disc in the optiplex 755


Jim Chapman Jr,
To insert a cd/dvd into the computer you would press the button on the front of the CD/DVD drive to open it up. Place the disc face up with the writing on top. Press the button to close the drive. The system should auto-detect and will give you some options on what you want to do.
Thank You,
Dell-Jesse L

My dell dimension 2400 isnt acknowledging cds in the e drive yet it says that the drive is ok. Can I get it to read them again?


Is it a CD drive, a CD burner, a DVD drive, a DVD burner or a Blu-Ray drive? Have you tested all types of cds for the drive? Do certain ones read and noth others? What version of Windows are you running? Did it stop working after a program install or a system crash?

You most likely need to reinstall windows. Insert your windows cd or dvd into your disc drive and then reboot the computer. Make sure you backup any of your important files first.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
