Did you connect the data and power cables inside the PC? Also check the jumper settings, if any, on the drive are set to CD (cable select). Does the drive open when pressing the eject button. Does the drive appear in Device Manager?

Hp dvd 1040 wont be recognize my PC..Someone help me!


Power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive


With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dell 340 will not recognize my cd or dvd drive.


check if you see any light on the drive, if yes. then the power is there and then the problem is with the data cable of the cd drive. try to repalce the cd drive with another cd drive. if it still doesnot work and if the same cables work with the hard drive, then the cd drive has gone bad. and if the new drive also doesnot work then reinstalling the operating system should fix the problem only and only if it appears in the bios. if it doesnot appear in the bios. then the problem is not of the operating system. then its the motherboard.

INstalled hp dvd1270i in my dell 4700. I have power but it doesn't recognize the drive. Does it matter if the old drive was a ribbon cable and the new one is sata?


Do you have the DVD daisy chained to the motherboard with another drive? I have the same Dell and I have 2 hard drives IDE, and a DVD with a CD burner which are seperate so they are on the other IDE connection daisy chained. The IDE controller will allow 2 devices and there are 2 IDE controllers on the motherboard. eMail me at izzoaf@yahoo.com with more info and questions and I"ll try to help.
