What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

If you can't boot form the CD/DVD you have a problem with your CD/DVD drive. If you can enter the BOIS (setup menu) then your computer is working, just waiting for a device to boot from.

DVD drive is not recognised. There is power to the drive but no drive letter in My Computer and no discs will play.


The data connection to the motherboard is not plugged in, it's loose or it is not set to slave or master.

You need to open the PC and see if it is connected. If it has a SATA connection, make sure the SATA cable it's plugged into the DVD drive and into the motherboard. If it is a IDE cable, then make sure it is properly plugged into the DVD drive and motherboard. If it is plugged in, make sure the jumper is set to cable select.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem
