Question about CD Drives
I've been having problems with my HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B.
First thing is first, here are some details.
I have a Dell Dimension XPS 400 with ALL latest updates from dell.
I have the latest driver for this device.
I have all the latest BIOS and Firmwire and EVERYTHING.
I'm Running XP Media Centre Edition 2004 SP3 32-Bit [United Kingdom]
There are no possible updates for me to install for it, unless i missed something.
What the actual problem is, is that My drive can READ dvd's and cd's perfectly.
the problem is i cant WRITE DVD's or CD's
When i instert a blank cd or dvd nothing happens is just says please insert a disk.
And yes i have tried over 20+ different disks of different makes, none work and all same error.
Open explorer and go to 'My Computer'
right click the DVD/CD-ROM Drive
click on the tab labeled 'Recording' (usually on the far right)
click the option that is labeled 'Enable CD recodring on this drive'
...and POOF, magic happens...

Re-install CD/DVD burning program and try again make sure to select the recorder drive correctly on option box ( copy from and copy to ) copy to is the recorder drive so should be HL-DT-ST DVD+RW GWA 4164B . You should have 2 drives on your pc the top drive and the bottom drive , put the DVD recorder on the bottom and connect the cable to slave , the top drive connect to master cable and set the jumper slave for bottom drive and master for top drive.
