Does it show up in my computer? It would probably be drive d,e,or f depending on how many drives you have. Also check in device manager and see if it is listed there. If it is try re-installing the drivers. What happens when you insert a CD? If it doesn't show up anywhere and will not play CDs it may be toast.

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?

This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

I recently bought a used TEAC CDWE552-GB CD Burner for my old computer. I received the power cord and cable to power it up but not the cables to attach it to my computer ( HP Pavilion 4550Z ). The ports on...

Unfortunately, I don't think you can use this CD writer on the HP Pavilion 4550Z directly. The CDWE552-G is an external USB device. The HP Pavilion 4550Z doesn't have any USB ports.

There are two options that I think you could consider. 1) Get a USB card to insert into the micro-tower. It's currently easier to find PCI USB 2.0 cards, see for some examples. Before purchasing, check to make sure the card is compatible with the OS on the HP Pavilion 4550Z. It started with Windows 98. You will have to remove the Fax/modem to use that slot. (An ISA card might work but I haven't seen an ISA bus USB card in years.)

2) Take the CD writer out of the external case. The CDWE552 should use an IDE cable; just swap this CD writer for the one in the micro-tower. The HP Pavilion 4550Z should have the appropriate cables inside the tower. The original CD reader specifications indicate it was an IDE device.

I hope this helps.

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

Hp cd-writer Not Working

Depending on what HP computer/cd-writer it is the type of disc you are using may not be supported.
Older cd-writers often had a specific type they could write to, CD -r / CD +r.

You should try to find out what kind of discs are supported by your cd-writer. This CAN be located in text on the front of the cd-writer.

CD-R Problems

Try cleaning with a lense cleanner cd, if it does not help then open up the drive and clean the lense by using a cotton swab like ear-bud. Do not use any chemical as it might spoil the lense. Reconnect it should work.
