The easiest thing to do is to update the firmware on the drive. If that doesn't work, check to see if the drive is getting adequate power, which can be caused by new hardware being installed that is taking up more power than the power box can give.
Clean the plugs and ribbon leading to the computer with a quick burst of compressed air.
If that still doesn't work, the laser may be mis-alligned, or borken, and is much easier to replace the whole drive. (CD-RW burners are insane cheap with DVD-RW burner drives being out for a long time, and Blu-Ray burners just around the corner)

I have bought a BTC extrenal disk drive USB 2.0 CD-RW 52x24x52x. My computer is regestering that it is in the usb port but it will not read any disks. I have an Acer travel mate 2300 laptop


A BTC CD-RW drive is compatible with Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP and it can read and write under Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.
Under DOS, the drive can read CDs only.

The quality of CD-R/RW media varies from different brands. A CD-R/RW media with bad quality causes writing error and makes a CD-ROM drive difficult to read.

Please check if the disc has deep scratches, fingerprints, or other contaminants on the discs surface. Clean the disc if it is necessary.


1. Use the burning software which is provided by original supplier and bundled with this CD-RW drive or download the update file from internet. 2. More capacity of hard disk is needed if using hard disk as temporary buffer. 3. Place the disc correctly. 4. The blank disc needs full format first if using Packing Writing software.
Software such as; EasyCD Creator, Nero-Burning ROM, NTI CDMaker are the only supported.

Flash firmware for Windows mode: 1. Please download the appropriate driver file you need from this page. 2. Run the flash program under Windows. 3. Click on the ¡uUpgrade¡vbutton under the flash program 4. ¡uStatus Upgrading¡vis starting to flash the F/W 5. After flashing, the system will appear ¡uComplete¡IPlease restart your computer¡v, then, restart your computer to finish the flash procedure. Note: 1. BTC do not recommend you to upgrade your F/W, if the drive is working properly and does not encounter any irreclaimable problem issues. 2. BTC is not responsible for any defective reasons if the upgrading process caused the issue. Firmware for windows:V000F.exe

Trying to copy some pics onto a cd to get some disc space but my drive wont recognise the cd rw


do you have a cd writer or rom drive is the first thing you have to check, if it's a writer then put the disc in first and it should give you an option to write files to cd accept then follow the the instruction to add your files, assuming your running windows. iif that does'nt work check to see if your discs are + or - it may be your wriiter will only accept one kind

I can't get it to override a information on a disc or add more video to disc


There are several types of DVD disks:
* DVD-R -- "write-once-read-many"
* DVD+R -- "write-once-read-many"
* DVD-R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
* DVD+R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
* DVD-RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"
* DVD+RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"

So, there is no way to "add-later" -- once you have written, the disk is "closed" to further writing.
The 'RW' disks can be quick-erased (takes about 60 seconds) and then you can start again to write, but that still is not the same as "add more video".

My cd drive is not allowing me to load materials or programs from a cd disk


What kind of CD-ROM drive is it, and what kind of discs are you trying to load? If it's an older drive and you are trying to read CD-R or CD-RW media, it may not support reading them. I've had problems reading them on newer drives also like those TrueX things that flopped a few years back. There could be lots of other reasons. The discs may be scratched or need cleaning, and if not the lens in the CD-ROM may need cleaning. Regrads, Solver.

No music on burned discs


You need to try a commercial cd of any kind. You just want to see if it reads the cd. Then you want to try a dvd and see if it reads that. If it reads the cd but has trouble with the dvd then the heads are out of alignment. It might still write a cd but not be able to write a dvd as that require more accuracy and it doesn't have it anymore.

You may still be able to use the drive but you will have to replace it. The symptoms you describe are typical of the driver going out of alignment so I would say you are heading for replacement sooner or later.

These are not cost effective to repair anymore so all you can do is replace them. Unless you can get it replaced under warranty you can replace it for under $50 at any local computer store.
