Hardware for laptops is usually specific for the provider. Go to the dell website to find the correct driver files for the laptop. There is probably some good information for troubleshooting this specific issue there too. Your service tag or maybe the express service code number is your key to the right stuff.

Go to Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management. Under Computer Management, expand Storage->Disk Management. On the results panel, Right Click the Volume(X:) then click Mark Partition as Active or click Reformat.

    If that's so, reinstall the your dvd driver. Most of corrupted/missing files are caused by virus attack. Reinstalling the driver may fix that.

Cd n dvd drives not recognised in My Computer


If one drive has resently been installed on the back of the drive there is a jumper with 3 choices of c/s S and M if the jumper is set to cs changer one drive to M for master and change the other drive to S for slave and reboot. If it still wont show drives try reversing the jumpers and reboot. If still not working change your cable to the motherboard.

Hi, sorry for late answer,

Regarding Nero, sometimes you need an update to manage sound onb certsin files compression format.
If Nero it is not the full version, it won't download updates.

Imagemixer is known to have problems with many DVD RW, try using a software like the following one to get it working: Download the shareware version of CD and DVD Drive Identify Version 1.0


See also this thread on same problem.

If you cannot solve the problem via software you will need to buy a new DVD burner, this is not an expensive part.

Burner not recognizing blank cd-r


Hi, Some of the burner drives require only certain media. Make sure that your burner does actually use the - media or the + media.

This may be why the media is not being recognised.
