Re: Connection Problems

If you have other Optical Drive in your computer like a CDwriter then installed it where that LG 52x CDROM drive. Observe if the same problem occur after 2 or 3 hours. Try connecting the CDROM drive to the IDE ports (Secondary IDE port) like setting its jumper to Master. Ensure that the connection to its power supply is firm. Change the setting of your POWER OPTIONS which is under the CONTROL PANEL and change the setting for TURN-OFF HARD DISK to NEVER.

Reading cd drive as flooppy drive

Not really, the set up in the BIOs is reading it as a FLOOPPY because it was not properly set from the start.
You must start the computer and hit F12, Escape, or Del. key to open the setup folder. Here you can make the changes to the devices in your computer, one of which turns OFF the request signal to a FLOOPPY Drive. If your CD ROM is active, it will show up there as well, if Not, the CD ROM is not active, broken, or the power cord and/or ribbon attachment loose or disconnected. Close out and start up normally. If the connections to the CD ROM are tight and well set, and the other ends that attach to the main board are affixed properly, all should be well. NOTE: If you are not GOOD at technical work, you might have someone do this for you.

My cd rom wil not work it just quit working for no reason it will not play any cds or let me burn anything

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

If the same problem is still occurring, get the reliable Dell support at http:/www./

No dvd/cd rom icon

From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.
