Computer will not detect dvd burner


Is the drive powering up . Is the light on the front of the drive always on.If always on the cable would be put in upside down change either on motherboard's side or on the drive. Is your drive a SATA or IDE. If IDE and the drive is sharing a cable with another drive or HDD then you will have to set the master/slave jumper found behind the drive. Look behind the drive and you will see a jumper with more connectors.

Generally there are three options C/s,Master,Slave. Removing the jumper completely also makes the drive a slave. Make sure the other drive is slave or master and appropriately change on this drive. IF HDD ( Hard disk) is master make this one slave or vice versa. Now windows should be able to find the drive.

No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will reconize cd's


I'll take that as a no,

In fact the default for most types of media is media player but it doesn't include all of the relevant codex's you require for every type of media by default.

Most manufacturers include this software with their computers/DVDROM's but not always.

The reason I assume it is your codex not being installed is simple, you can play CD's, that means the drive works, media player works, sound card works and speakers work. The only common problem that would cause this is a missing or corrupted codex.

try something for me and let me know if it solves the problem.

Install VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Then try to play the DVD using VLC player. If it asks to update itself, let it.

Comment back here once you have tried and let me know how you make out.

My new Sony Optiarc AD-7221A DVD drive won't work


for your old sony drive that wont open...

look fort a small hole, like a little bigger than a pinhole, in the front panel of the drive. if you can find this hole, stick a straightened-out paperclip or something similar in the hole, and gently force it in, and this should open the cd drive.

a page file error has to do with ram saving to and reading from the hard drive, using a portion of the hard drive as back-up virtual ram. perhaps there is a bad sector on the hard drive, or some other sort of error with either the hard drive or ram to cause the "page file error" and the inability to play dvd's.

if you can get that old drive to work, that may be your best bet.

Won't reconize DVD burner


Well, the CD ribon cable goes into the IDE 2 slot on the Mainboard and the furthest connector on the other end is the master, the second one closest to the board is the Slave connector. The CD drive has a jumper on the back between where the ribbon and the power connector go, on the case some where it should have a diagram showing the jumper setting to put it in as master or slave. Set it accordingly.

Same with Hard drives.

If the Hard drive has a diferent Cable like a SATA, then be sure to get a SATA as the new one.

Now the IDE cables may be bad check them for damage just to be on the safe side.

Install dvd benq dw1620 in dell 2300 xp


you have to remember to set the Jumpers on the drive to assigh it Master or Slave,  if this is not done it will conflict with the other drive on the IDE cable, (you would usually match the setting of the drive you removed)

This setting is assigned using a jumper on a block of six pins which is usually located next to the 40 pin IDE connector.

window 2000 could be a probable cauuse.You could try the following. Update windows by installing the latest hot fixes this would most probably solve the problem if the problem is in windows. if the drives show up in device manager. boot you PC in safe mode and uninstall the drivers of both DVD drives.and reboot normally. If this doesnt work let me know your DVD drive make and model.

Dvd freezes windows when a disk is inserted


If you have two drives on the same ide cable, one has to be set at master, the other as slave, the hard drive should always be the master. But you should'nt normally put a cd drive on the same ide as a hard drive as this will slow up the read write speed of your hdd. Make sure the ide cable is the correct way around, and that all the drives have been recognised in the bios. To enter the bios press f2 or del on boot up and see if all the drives appear there.
