It could because of a lose connection.  1. remove all the cables connected to the DVD and plug it again. 2. Remove the other end of the data(flat) cable and plug it again to the motherboard.

Spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer,
since it costs more than that to try to "trouble-shooting" a malfunctioning CD/DVD writer.

The player will play dvd and cd. Will not burn


Hello,
  1. Check the DVD format,maybe the dvd your trying to burn is not supported by your DVD writer
  2. Check the surface of the disc.If is dirty or scratched
  3. Make sure that DMA is enabled on your IDE channels in the "Windows Device" manager(right click on My Computer and select Properties.Hardware->Device Manager )
  4. Uninstall every DVD program you have
  5. Reboot
  6. Verify that your hard drive has enough empty space so it could burn something
  7. Install the program
  8. And try again

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.
