You can find internal DVD-R+/- about anywhere, Walmart, Best Buy. It just has to have an IDE connection which is very common. You could also look into USB external drives. Average price is around $35.

Dvd drive won't read disks


Hi,

If it used to work but now doesn't and you have changed nothing then the following will help.

You can try a CD Laser cleaning kit, you put a liquid on a disc and put it in the dvd drive.
It will clean the laser, hopefully this will work.

If it still doesnt work its most likely at the end of its life.

Try a Music CD, a DVD, and any other discs, make sure the discs aren't scratched.

DVD drives are extremly cheap these days,
I got a Sony DVD Writers for £18 delivered from Play.com

Its very simple to fit,
Switch off PC
Just take of side of the PC Case
Unscrew the 2 screws on each side of the dvd player, disconnect the wires .
Then fit the new one

The PC will pick it up after a restart and it wont need drivers

Goodluck

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?


look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

Hi.
I stick with Pioneer at the moment. I've had so much trouble with many other brands, but Pioneer drives seem very good at writing even low quality discs which tends to be an indication of a good drive.

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy


The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

LG GSA-H62N WILL NOT INSTALL ON MY COMPUTER WITH VISTA HOME EDITION


Please check and let me know the exact model of your computer. If you have a door in front or on top you should see the exact model number. I want to make sure your system can handel a DVD writer. Are you replacing a cd with a DVD writer or adding a 2nd drive? On all compaqs the the new DVD drive needs to be set to CL(Cable Select ) on the back of the new DVD drive. Also make sure you have the right IDE cable and power.
