I just installed a slim DVD burner, model DS-8A1P-18C, on my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop, but my computer doesn't recognise it. Now what???

    I decided to see if the drive would read audio CD, and it played the CD perfectly. Then I tried a movie, and it worked again. The new drive must have just taken a while to figure out where or who it was! It has since burned a DVD, so it looks like I'm in business!

    Thanks, anyway!

Sometimes the system will take care of finding drivers in the background and not let you know. (You can sometimes see balloons/small windows at the bottom right of the screen giving you progress.) That's probably what it did.

Bad hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

BASICALLY YOU ARE MISSING THE DVD DECODER. IF YOU REINSTALL A DVD PLAYER THE SYSTEM USES THAT AS A DRIVER.

DVD BURNER


Well, either your system doesn't notice the drive in the device manager or your drive is bad, look in the control panel under system/hardware to see if it sees the drive, if it does, remove the drive and reboot, let windows reinstall it, if that doesn't work you may need a new drive. Here's one I found on ebay cheap.
