You can't remove the broken CD or is the tray not opening?

If the tray is not opening straighten out a paperclip and insert it into the release hole on the front of the drive .. this will open the tray

I have a new computer with Windows Vista. I have


No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista.
Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does.
The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.

Original windows


Have a look at the bottom of your laptop and you should see a Windows label which will have the Produce key printed on the label.
Borrow a Windows installation CD, must be the same as the Windows version that is printed on the label eg. Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Professional or one of the Windows Vista versions.
Use this CD to reinstall Windows on your laptop.
If you haven't got a Windows label, you need to purchase a new Windows install CD or if you have a old version of Windows 98 or ME to can purchase a Windows Vista upgrade which is much cheaper than buying a new Windows Vista.

Mad Dog External DVD Writer


I don't know if I can be of any help here, but I purchased my Mad Dog Multimedia MEGASTOR DVD+/-RW burner a few years ago for my PoweSpec with XP Home Edition. I recently bought a new computer installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (which yes, I actually do love) and my external Mad Dog works perfectly, I didn't even have to update any drivers, it recognizes the drive everytime I plug it in (via USB). I don't need it anymore, but it's actually a better burner than the one that came with my system, which I bought new in March, although it's now discontinued. Do you have the disk for it? If so, have you tried running the disk again? What OS and processor do you have? In the event that it might be a matter of obtaining the proper driver for it to work for you, I also am a member of a great and extremely reliable site for free driver downloads. Free membership is limited to a few downloads within a certain period of time,and then you have to wait 24 hours, but other than that there is no limit so that's what I do. Just for the record, there was a period where my old XP was out of commission and I had to resort to my very old HP Pavillion that was about 10 years old, came with Windows 98SE(when that OS was brand new) and all I needed to do to make Win98 recognize the drive was download a driver and it worked just fine. LOL, that has a processor that runs at 600 megahertz, so you can imagine if my Mad Dog worked on systems like that, XP Home and now Vista Home Premium without a hitch, I was quite impressed with their products.

The problem is with vista and not you PC, vista does not support many devices yet, microsoft recently released vista service pack 1 which address's some of these issues, you can download SP1 through windows updates, and if this does not help your problem you're stuck waiting for microsoft to release more updates. Many vista users setup xp on a dual boot so that they can use xp for devices like yours.

Good luck and i hope this helps

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.
