    Does the device manager list an unknown device? If it does this is most likely your DVD-RW drive.

    If the above is true you will need to install new drivers for the device. If you would like to provide the model number for your DVD-RW drive I would be happy to try and find drivers for you.

Super multi dvd/rw optical drive wont work


You didn't supply the OS ? Open the device manager, uninstall the DVD rom and Go to the Computer's Manufaturer's website and download the correct driver.

Dvr writing


Did it work in the past? Are you sure your system can write DvD's? Click Start/My Computer and look at the description of the DvD Drive. Does it say DvD-RW or DvDrw which means it can write a DvD? Look on the side of the laptop at the dvd drive, does it say DvDrw or DvD-RW or DvD Rewritable? If so that means it is capable of writing Dvd's.

If it says just DvD or DvD Rom that means it can only read dvd's.

Make sure the dvd you put in the drive is blank. I've been on many service calls where they said the dvd was not writing and found out that the media was not blank.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Compact Disk Drive isn't opening or recognizing disks


The drive may be dirty or jammed. Use an expanded paper clip. Insert the wire into the little hole on the front of the unit. That will engage a manual switch. Gently open the unit all the way. Now press the button and let it close by itself. If this doesn't work it may also be an electronic failure.

DVDRW will not read CDs


1)right clik on my computer
go to
properties
device manager
clik on cdrom
uninstall it then re-install it
after reinstall try using the drive

2)update windows ,use custom and see if it finds an updated driver,if it does or doesnt update windows anyhow.
after you restart the computer try using the rom drive.

if that doesnt work;

go buy a cd/dvd rom cleaning disk at your local electronics store and use it.

if all this doesnt work;
buy a new rom drive
