Re: Dell problems

I'm not familiar with cd creator, but all programmes are the same format, to burn mp3's to a cd and not change to .wav or standard cd play, you have to burn the mp3's as a data cd, this will leave them in tact and an mp3 player will recognise them as mp3 files a cd player will recognise them also as mp3 but as individual files which you can play. The best software for this in my opinion is nero and i think you can go to www. and download a trial.

Dell OptiPlex 780 with Windows 7 does not play my cd's or dvd's and is missing from device manager

Sounds like a problem of non-detection by the system. If the drive is missing from My Computer then it definitely is a non-detection issue. Try using this file (it's an exe when unzipped) and only required double-clicking.

I have optiplex gx620 mini pc but it dosent read any cd and dvd but sometimes it does read the cd do i have to change the bios setting for that

Hi Ayesha,

I would suggest you to do a lens cleaning of your DVD-ROM drive , as it seems it reads the disc sometimes and sometimes it does not as a result of possible dirt accumulation on the lens.
There are lens cleaners available in the market which has a disc with a brush on it , which cleans up the lens.

If that does no work , then you need get the replacement if the drive is under warranty or check it with your friend's computer , or get a new one, as DVD - RW drives also come cheap these days , so a repair job proves costly sometimes.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback will be appreciated.

You can go to the dell website @

Look up your computer with your make and model or service tag number. Then look up the DVD drive and install the driver for free.

Hope this works,

If you can think and look logically, you will be able to replace your current drive with a standard notebook drive, mostly called slimline.
open the case by pressing the two knobs at the side and lift it upwards. The unit clicks out easily, the removal of the flat cable and power connector needs a bit of patience, and you have to unscrew the drive from the bracket after that. I think you can get a drive for some $50,-5015338.jpg
