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.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

The CD Drive does not work all of the time.


Nate, How old is your laptop? From what I can find, it looks like the Optarc 5540 is indeed a DVD±R/RW/R-DL burner. It should read anything you put in. If you have the driver, I might try to reinstall that first, but if this is a fairly new system (Under warranty) I would definitely pursue a replacement.

Cd burner won't work.


Could be several things, try a different brand of cds. if that is a no go...try this, go into the device manager and click on DVD/CD-ROM drives and get your exact model of burner. then go to this page: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSP_DSKTP_D531S&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid= and find that one and download and install the drivers. also looking for firmware updates and Urgent updates.
It isn't that bad to do...good luck hope this helped,, please leave a rating.

LED light is orange but computer is on.


it sounds like you may have overloaded the PSU, best thing to try would be to take out the dvd burner and and try booting again, if this doesn;t have any affect it may mean you need a new psu (power supply).
