Welcome to fixya.

I'm hoping that this tips could work with your situation

  • you can auto detect your external cd writer.
  • just follow on screen instruction auto browse for the drivers
  • if not working, please right click My computer and then in drop down menu click properties.
  • and then in system properties click hardware
  • and click device manager, see if there's a yellow question mark in the cd/dvd icons. right click for web updates.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls post back the file name(s) of the drivers/contents of the driver CD/diskette that you have.

Normally, it should still be plug n play, however, certain proprietary software may require updates and hopefully would still be available for downloads.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything


If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

did you remove all of the original software as this can cause a software problem. you will need to remove the new software and the old software.then shut down the computer then. let it start up. turn back off again install the dvd writer then turn back on now should load the proper driver for the dvd rom. then install the software.

Trying to use Pioneer DVR-XD10 USB 2.0 external DVD/CD writer to install win7 and getting no driver error


Hi,

this is a usb drive, the computer does not know you have an external drive, cause there is no operating system to be able to read it.

if you need to install a new Windows 7 on your computer, and you don't have an internal CD/DVD reader, i suggest you try to install it from a USB.
refer to these links for more information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd535816.aspx
and:
http://www.pcworld.com/article/165159/install_windows_7_from_an_external_hard_drive.html

Then, after you install the Windows 7 first, then you will be able to install the Pioneer DVR-XD10 and use it. I don't think you can do it the other way around.

cheers,
good luck.

My Iomega CDRW64001 keeps ejecting my blank CDs. The external LED blinks for several minutes and then ejects the CD with or without a burn program open. It plays recorded CDs and I'm able to install...


Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".

Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.
