Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

My nephew has a dell inspiron 1525 & the college computer center told him his dvdrw is broken. What dvdrw will work in it


Any CD/DVD-writer drive will work -- just remove the face-plate and mounting-brackets from the "dead" drive, and connect those parts to the "new" drive.

I have a dvd/cd SD-R6252 unit in my r3000 compaq presario. I've burned CDa but cannot burn a DVD. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure is this unit capable of burning DVDs?


Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

Wanting to burn a dvd


No, it is a CDRW and DVD drive only. If it were to be able to burn DVDs, it would say DVDRW. Your drive will play DVDs, it just won't burn them.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Yes no problem.

Sure they made DVD writers for those - usually about $80-100.
If you just want a CD burner and DVD player they are only $40-$60.

You can easily eject the drive by hitting the release lever to the right of the CD drive.

The CDRW/DVD combo part numbers are 08K9820 22P6980 08K9818 or 13N6765

They have cdrw/dvd combos for $34 at compuvest.com brand new. I saw DVDrw drives for $70 on ebay -look for part numbers 08k9868, 08K9694, 08K9572, 08K9818, 08K9820, 08K9867, 22P9109, 22P7011, 22P6991, 08k9785, 27L4358, 08k9784, 27L4359
