    This is brand new, just got it. Just barely started doing anything to the laptop. I installed the pinball CD it came with and for some reason when i go to click on "safely remove hardware" and it says okay, then the CD holder will not come open. I had to shut down the dell and reboot it and then the CD holder would open.

Software lock. Sometimes Nero will do this, sometimes the application software itself (if it's a game like Homeworld 2) will lock the drive.

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...


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
