This is certainly a jumper issue... You must have one set as Master and one set as Slave unless you have both set as Cable Select... If you have tested this and nothing works then the drives are probably not compatible with each other, but I am almost certain this is a jumper issue since it is freezing.

DVD Burner in my Dell XPS just stopped working?


Check both ends of the data cable for looseness. Check the power plug on the back of the DVD player too. If all is correct then the player itself has failed. It does happen.

I have a Compaq Presario c700...the DVD RW drive does has stopped reading DVDS. i have done several diagnostics but everytime the result is that the drive is working fine.


Try different DVD's and if you own any, try some DVD Games

if you can buy a CD cleaner as any dust or grime on the lens could stop the DVD drive from reading certain data

the other thing could be that it's reached it's lifespan and it's time to buy a new DVD RW drive, DVD/DVDRW drives are cheap to buy now, so you could probably pick one up for $10 - $20

DVDRW doesn't show Drive in My Explorer.


You may have a virtual drive installed on your PC. (ex: Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, etc). If this is the case, make sure they are not set to automatically "mount" or start-up with windows. I had this same problem just today... fixed it by removing the auto-start feature and reinstalling the .CD/DVD burner/

Mad Dog USB DVD-RW not recognized


The firmware updates and drivers won't help you. You can try turning it off, disconnecting it from your PC, then turning off your PC, turning on the burner and then turning your PC back on and hope that it's recognized. The chances are slim as this is a known issue with Mad Dog external USB DVDRW's and you need to send it in for repair if it's under warranty or put it on eBay as broken (or throw it out) otherwise and get a new one. I have a Mad Dog external DVD-RW and ran into the same exact issue, for a while it was working on and off as long as I didn't turn the burner off while my PC was on but for a while now it's just recognized by the PC as mass storage device rather than the DVDRW that it is and when you reach that point the aforementioned two choices (repair or throwing it out\putting it on ebay) are the only ones you have.
