Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop

Dell XPS 200 CD/DVD reading problem?

I have a XPS 200 dell desktop. When I put in a CD-R or DVD-R with data on them that I burned about a year ago, the D drive shows that the CD or DVD is empty. The data still shows up when the same CD or DVD is put into another computer. Also, when I burn a CD and put music on it, it will work, but when I put the CD back in my computer it shows that it is empty. Sometimes when a DVD or CD with written info on it is put in the D drive, the computer will freeze up and I will have to eject it if I want to use any programs. Any information on a solution to this problem? Thanks for your help.

Dell xps wont boot from dvd just cd


Sounds like you have only a CD drive. To boot DVDs you need to have a DVD drive installed. The computer probably came with a CD drive because Win XP came on a CD.

My dell laptops xps m1330 dvd player is not working


Verify that you have the last firmware (A14) on the Dell Support web site. Then check the CSS status of the DVD (should be unlocked) with this utility

http://www.digital-digest.com/software/download.php?sid=2&ssid=0&did=1

and finally verify that the DVDs are actually readable, and that the DVD reader works (try reading / burning a data CD-ROM or data DVD).

Check also that the video player software is set to the correct region and there are no errors in the Event Viewer (Hit Start, choose Run, type EVENTVWR.MSC and Enter). DVD events should be either under System or Applications.

Can't burn DVD but can burn cd


There is a possibility that the laser of the optical drive is not functioning anymore to write dvd. This is what you have to do.

Click on Start
Click Run
Type regedit and press OK
Registry Editor windows will come up
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
CLass
{4d36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

on the right hand side, delete "Upper FIlters" and "Lower Filters" you may see on it. Everything that has something to say on upper and lower filters.

Close the Registry Editor and then Click on START, right click on My Computer and then select Properties.

Go to Hardware Tab and click on Device Manager
click on the (+) sign of the cd/dvd rom and right click on the item below and select Uninstall.

Close everything and restart your computer and try burning a dvd

***remember to use burning software since windows XP explorer could not simply burn data using the Explorer it self.

Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.
