Well a CD-RW/DVD ROM is a CD burner so you really dont need to replace it. Unless you meant replace it with a DVD burner then...

The best thing you can do is go to the Dell website and search your notebook/model number and look for the upgrade drive and buy it from them. If its to expensive search ebay or the web with the info you found on the Dell website (combo drive name + model number) and find one for a cheaper price.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd


Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

My burner will not burn cd's anymore. It still plays cd's fine as well as play and burn dvd's fine. I see no errors in hardware setup. It is a nec dvd +- RW ND 6650A that came with my Dell Inspiron E1705.


The CD Burner / Player / DVD Burner are all different heads. If the Dell Inspiron E1705 is an older model it is most likely you have reached the end of it's usable life for the CD burner part. If it is new the CD burner is most likely defective and hopefully warrantied. Otherwise these CD/DVD units can be replaced relatively inexpensively (as compared to buying a new laptop).

I want to know what type of blank dvd?


You can use any kind of writable DVD the difference is that DVD-R, are more secure and data is better protected so you have a Combo or DVD+RW Drive 8X CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) that allows you to use a double layer DVD+ R or CD + R

Hi what keys do i press to format a dell inspiron 1150 laptop


If you mean wiping the hard drive & starting fresh I would do a low level format. This will make the hard drive as if it was new from the store, but you will have to reload Windows & other software. You should have a good knowledge of computers before doing this or ask a friend who knows computers to help.

I want to replace the dvd drive in my Inspiron 6000 with a dvd burner. What do you recommend


Search Ebay's site using your Dell 6000 dvd burner in the search window. Lots and lots of dvd rw/cd burners on Ebay. Choose a seller with lots of good feedback and ask the seller if he knows for sure the drive will work in your Dell 6000. Good hunting.

Uninstall the program and reinstall it,
maybe the disk with the drivers will solve your problem,
if no disk download the drivers from www.dell.com

or try the manufacturer ofr the dvd drive for the drivers too

also what Service Pacxks do you have installed on this machine
XP will need at least SP2 for some of you high speed devices ie usb2.0

Good Luck MISTERDJ
