ADD MULTI BURNER DVD


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Installing additional DVD burners on your computer can turn your PC into a DVD-producing powerhouse, enabling you to burn multiple discs concurrently.


This is typically not a problem, as most computer cases can handle up to four separate optical drives at the same time.


The installation process is fairly straightforward, requiring no more than 20 to 30 minutes.


Turn off the computer and disconnect the power cord.


Remove the case screws at the back of the case and slide out the side panel.

Insert the new DVD burner into an empty optical drive bay at the top of the case.

Repeat for each new DVD drive.


Screw each drive into position.


Connect an IDE or SATA cable to the data port on the back of each drive (depending on your drive model).


Connect the white-tipped molex connector from your computer's power supply to the power port on the back of each drive.


These cables will already be inside your machine with one end connected to the motherboard and power supply, respectively.


All you will need to do is attach the other ends to the back of your optical drive.


Put the side panel back on, screw it to the case and reconnect the power cord.


Hope this helps.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How to install Pci-e 16x in a pci slot


Do not put a PCI-e card in a PCI slot. It will not fit and the card won't work. The PCI card has 58 or 60 pins on each side with the slot (62 pins would be present if not for the key notches for alignment). PCIe 16x cards have 32 pins.

There are adapters to put a PCI card in a PCIe 1x slot (will fit any PCIe slot) or a PCIe1x card in a PCI slot. See http://www.amfeltec.com/index.php for a sample of the adapters. For the PCIe 16x cards, you need a new motherboard.

If you are placing a PCI-e 16x card in a PCIe 16x slot or a PCI card in a PCI slot, then open the side of your case. Locate the matching slot (remove the current card) or an empty slot depending on your motherboard. Depending on the case, you may need to remove a screw to remove the old card. Wiggle the card straight up to remove it. If you are putting in a new card, you will need to remove the cover from the slot. (For some larger PCIe 16x cards, you need to remove the adjacent slot cover as well.) Some covers just pull straight up or pry a lever up and then pull; for others, you will need to use a screwdriver to break the cover out. Make sure there is sufficient room near the slot for the card. (You may need to move other cards around.)

Then line up the card so that the back of the card will fit into the opening and the contacts on the bottom of the card are above the center of the slot. Firmly press the card down into the slot without changing the alignment. You may need to wiggle it (press down on the back and front, alternatingly). Then make sure the card is fully seated. Attach the addtional power cord from your power supply, if needed for a PCIe 16x card.

Close your case. Then if this is a new video card, turn on the computer and enter the BIOS (press F1, F2, F10, Esc depending on the machine). Disable the on-board video. Then reboot the computer and load the drivers you need for the card.

I hope this helps.

Emachines 5240 dvdrom Can you tell me if I can fit any dvd rom into my desktop 5240 it says 8x max but items I have seen for sale are all 16 x. also can you give me the original serial no...


Hey, there's no way to give you the original serial number unless we can see it. There should be a barcode or label somewhere on the machine that has that. Sometimes its also on the bottom.

As far as the DVD Rom, it will fit any dvd, but the fastest it can write(burn) a DVD is 8x. You can use a 16x DVD just fine. The 16x on the DVD's just means thats the fastest a burner can write to that dvd. Some burners can write 16x, and others like yours burn at 8x.

Hope this helps.

Unable to burn pictures to DVD-R disc 16x 4.7GB . When previously able to burn pictures to 720MB CD.


You must use a DVD-R/W burner. if it is not specified as DVD-R/W then it won't burn DVD-Rs Also be aware, there are DVD-R and DVD+R disks and they won't work in the opposite burner. Most modern burners are DVD+/-R and will burn either type.

1) Do not pay attention to speed burning, in my opinion the slower the better.

2) the burner may be dusty, buy a dry dvd lens cleaner and use it.

3) try other media like Verbatiom or Teac and compare results.

4) the lifespan of any burner (depends on use) is about 18 months (my nec 7170-AD stopped working after 10 months), you may have exeded the life span of your burner, replace with new one.

Slow burner


well what you can try is
1.) Cleaning your registery out
2.) deleting all temp files
3.) defragmenting your registery

to do all the above you can use a product know as tune up utilities aviable here www.phazeddl,com type yune up in the search box and search it

4.) defragmenting your harddrive
to to this go into my computer
right click on local disc and click properties.
clicl tools the defrag

5 delete your preftech files
they are located in c:\windows\prefetch

6 empty your recycle bin

7 restart


ensure you have 16x media and your burningspeed is set to 16x

4x media means you can only burn at 4 8x at 8 or below, 16x at 16 or below

if all fails then you need to format and reinstall
