I have a I/OMagic #I522452EU DVD Burner and somehow it stopped working this morning when I went to turn it ON. I changed the USB port position, unplugged the rear connection and still it won't turn ON. I flipped the rear ON & OFF switch. My computer doesn't reconginize it either. Does the USB cord also act as the power cord? If yes, it's fried. If no, then the power cord for this DVDBurner is somewhere behind my huge desk.

Re: Won't turn ON
Tmilligan, This is an external burner right? They usually have a power supply and wall plug and don't power up from the USB. To make sure check the drive to see if there is a plug for a power cord on the enclosure back. My money is on that you will need to call some friends to help you move the desk. randy320sgi

Hello mklvon, Welcome to FixYa.Com! I would like to recommend that you first take a look at your computer. Check if you have a USB 2.0 High Speed port. Reason is because although you have a USB 2.0 Ext Multi-Burner but your connecting it to a USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 port, the Multi-Burner will only run as fast as the USB port can transfer data. Another time I would like to recommend is for you to take a look at the USB cable itself. As it is an Ext. Multi-Burner it may require a power USB port w/c is the reason why most Ext. Burner's have a Y-connector that is one USB port on one side and the other side branches off to 2 USB ports as it required extra power. If it is, you may want to consider your options as to getting a powered USB port. And lastly, I would recommend that you take a look at the type of discs you are burning on to. Not all DVD R are the same. Whilst some have 24x speed some can have 4x speeds which can also affect the burn speeds. Regards, Deathschythe33
No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.)

You need to add the device before it can work. Click on start on your computer screen(title bar). Go to Control Panel. Click on Add Hardware. Insert the Device Cd if it has. But if you have and your device is plug and play.You click Next and follow the steps.
Try a different USB port. Check if other USB devices are found when in that port.
Unplug other USB devices (keep your keyboard and monitor attached) and check if the device is recognized. Since you indicate that you used the front port, you may want to check that the cable between back of the port to the motherboard is fully seated on both sdes. Make sure that the OS hasn't been set to turn off the previously unused USB ports (this is a security and power-saving option).
you may be having conflicts with usb devices. try temporarily removing all unnecessary devices from the usb ports. unplug and then plug the drive back in. you could try another port. if all ports are in use, then unplug another device, like the mouse and plug in to that port, then plug the mouse into the writers port. i had a similar problem with a wireless usb lan that stopped another device from being recognised. when i removed the lan and replugged the unrecognised device, windows recognised it. i obviously had to use the wireless lan, so i swapped that with the mouse and it worked.
email me and i will send the driver in an attachment file.please not though that the hp 740i burner is an internal I D E supported drive not a USB. as long as its a 740 model the driver should work, wether its usb or ide is up to the computer to associate it with. firstname.lastname@example.org
It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.
For thing like DVD burner drives, Windows XP/Vista offer universal support, meaning that it won't matter that you own a Dell computer, you can buy any DVD drive and it will work.
I recommed the following for $51. It also comes with software to support burning DVDs, just in case your current software does not offer this feature. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106248
