Hi wsmurty,

I see that you are having issues regarding your External DVD drive, you also mentioned that the Operating system was down graded to WinXP SP3 from Win7 Starter.

  • If this only happen just a day ago or possibly just hours ago you can try doing a system restore on the machine, restore to an earlier date at least a day or two from the day that the DVD drive was not dected on the machine. if this does not work then try the steps below.
  • Check Device manager to see if there are any drivers that you may have missed out for the Lenovo System.
  • Possible Drivers that can cause your USB's not to detect the External DVD drive will be the chipset drivers.
  • Second Driver is the driver for your External DVD drive see if it is up to date or possible that it may needs updating on the case.
  • Is the External DVD detected in My Computer? If it is then Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for your External DVD drive can be done just to check then update the driver for it if possible from the manufacturers website.
I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

An external hard drive is a normal hard drive with a converter to change it to USB.
If you have important information on it, you could open it up, and connect internally to your computer, however, opening it will (almost always) void the warranty.

I'd recommend contacting whoever sold it to you, and asking them: 1) If you can open it up, to connect it internally, to get your data off, and 2) For a replacement.

Good luck with it.

do not format -- you will lose the pictures

instead go to another computer that supports SD memory and CDRW. insert into that computer and then take all the PICS, save into that computer. now take a blank CD and take the saved PICs and burn into CD.
Also, to ensure you dont lose these pictures (PICs) you may want to buy a 4G or 8G USB thumb drive (about $10-$15 or less) -- drag and drop all the PICs (saved on that computer) into the USB thumb drive. Now you have on CD and USB drive.

hope this helps

Maybe your CD/DVD drive is a old drive :O( , for the new cd´s/DVD´s on the marked today actually many times you need a new drive for read them. Try first if you can install with the dll found on the link below.

Ohter solutions:
1: get a external drive(not to old) and try install it with that
2: copy the cd to a usb storage on a computer thats have a new cd/dvd drive, use the usb storage to install it on your computer, use the dll file from the link.
Hope this can resolve the problem.

Seagate external Harddrive


I would suggest to take it to a computer repair shop to get it open.
You can also try to open it using a flat head screwdriver and locate where the locking tabs are on the hard drive enclosure.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
