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.

Can my CD-RW/DVD Rom Drive, model # GCC4320B be replaced with a hp 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer, dvd 1270i . I bought this unit today, but the connections don't match up? I truely appreciate your time and...


This model DVD/CD writer is a SATA drive and unless your motherboard has a SATA connector then you have a slight problem. You will need to purchase a SATA controller and install it into your PCI expansion slot, then connect your new DVD/CD drive to this SATA controller. You will also need a SATA adapter power cable converter which plugs into the 4 pin power connector.

I am replacing my cd player/burner with a DVD writer model sh-s223 the attachments don't match what do I need to purchase


The sh-s223 is a SATA interface, you must have the older IDE/PATA type drive interface, this needs the wider IDE ribbon cable for data and a 4 pin MOLEX power plug.
You have bought the wrong DVD burner
You have 2 options
Return the drive and buy an IDE model... OR
Buy a sata expansion card, these can be bought for under £10

I HAVE A DVD RECORDER VCR COMBO,THE DVD PLAYER NO LONGER WORKS. CAN I REPLACE THE DVD MYSELF OR CAN I GET IT REPAIRED?


You can replace the drive yourself.
This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer. (some with fancy clips you can change from the old unit to the new one)

You simply remove the tray and face plate on the new drive, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap IDE DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?


According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

Is there any way to add a dvd r+- writer drive to my compaq 1503sw. If so, what should I look for to fit my expansion drive


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.

CDRW/DVD Rom combo drive only reads CD's


the blue you are refering to is the dye on the disc, sometimes it's purple, normally the darker the better, but it's down to the individual writer and what disc it is compatable with, but your writers problem is all too common, as in my opionion the lasers that are being fitted in writers are of poorer quality than in the earlier days to enable the prices to become lower. You can try one thing, but it doesnt always work; go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays
