    I was working away, using the dvd burner and my dv9000 went off and has been totally dead since... not even the ac light comes on when plugged in.
    Is this the dreaded dead motherboard?

    Do you have burning software installed and does the software see the drive?

Doesn't burn or play CD's or DVD' doesn't recognize the CD which is to be burned

check the my computer icon to see if your cd drive letter is listed. usually it is your D drive. If it is there and won't read CD's drive is either dirty or needs to be replaced. Pick up a CD drive cleaning kit.

DVD Ram drive

This could be several causes. is it a dvd Rom Drive ??
first this could be software related. i.e which program is stating that it,s a blank cd ( windows or another program ? ) i.e nero or similar ?
try uninstalling the device ( DVD ) in control panel/system/device mansger. re-boot the computer and it should state. new device/harware found and ask for a driver.
If this does,nt work theres a chance that if you are using packet writing software, the disks are not finalising, hence they will not be recognised, as the T.O.C table of contents are not being written to the disk ( Finalizing )
Finally the read laser could be out of alignment or not powering up suffiently to read, other formats.
Hope this guides you to some success.

This is because the model you mentioned is just a combo drive. It is not a dvd burner. You can watch dvd's with it but not burn them. The way manufacturers word the advertising leads some people to believe that they have a dvd and cd burner. All you have is a cd burner / dvd player. What you want is a dvd-rw / cd-rw drive. Sorry! I hope this helps.

DVD / CD - RW Combo

When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
