For less than $40, you can, and should, replace it with a CD/DVD-writer.

It sounds like your operating system quit seeing your dvd/cd writer/player.
to check this locate mycomputer icon, or goto start and locate computer and right click on it.
a window will open, click on properties, then left click on Device manager you will see all the devices on your computer, and you should see DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list of devices. if you right click on this you have a choice of scan for new devices or Properties, if you scan for new devices chances are it will not find you dvd/cd-rom device, windows operating system very seldom does. so click on properties,
You will see several choices like reload driver, update driver, uninstall drive depending on your operating system. If you have the DVD/CD-rom device cd with the software driver then and only then you may uninstall the driver, so you can reload it to make the operating system see the device after you reboot the computer, then install the driver again... If you do not know what I'm talking about...Take the computer back to the repair shop and have them to the repairs to make the Windows Operating system see the DVD/CD-rom device.

Good luck...

I appear to need a driver so that I can use my External DVD Writer Mode 1 SE-SO84 on my iMac using the Mac OS 9.2 operating system so that I can use its full potential. At present it will read DVD's...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. You don't need a driver since the mac computer was able to recognize the DVD and CD's. If you want to use the DVD writer to burn images on a blank cd you need to use a burning software. Can you please try use the software below and see it if will work.

Please let me know if this will work or not so that we can continue troubleshooting. Thanks

Would like to copy my pictures onto a CD


I guess you have a CD writer/Combo or DVD writer on your computer.
Assuming you have Windows XP, I'll answer the question. (If you have Win 7 still you may be able to figure out how to do this after reading these instructions).
Select the pictures you want to copy. Right-click on one of them and select Send To --> (Your CD Writer) from menu. (If you have pictures in several locations you can go to each folder and do this).
You will see a text balloon appearing on bottom right corner saying 'You have files waiting to be written to CD'. Click on this balloon or open the CD writer from 'My Computer'.
Click 'Write these files to CD' from the left. Insert a blank CD and proceed.

Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

I downloaded all my pictures on to a cd, loaded the cd in my asus notebook and nothing! how in the world do i put my pictures on the notebook from a cd?


Hello there.

Can that CD you burned be read on a different computer aside from where you burned it? Blank CD's should be "finalized" after burning it to be able to view it on different CD-ROMS. CD-roms which are not CD-writers cannot read "unfinalized" burned CDs.

To finalize it, insert back the same CD in your CD-writer and look for the option to finalize it.

If it is finalized and still can't be read by your notebook, try another brand of blank CDs.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


> CD-RW / DVD-ROM

Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

You know how you can burn a cd on your computer well my competer just leaves the cd blank what do i do?


I assume you have a CD/DVD writer or a combo. Check if it is recognized and its full name displayed in My Computer.

Next try using a new blank CD and burn using a program like Nero.

You need only the trial version to test your writer. Alternatively, search on Google for free CD burning software. Let me know how it goes.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

How do I move pictures from computer to put on disk??


Do you mean to put pictures from computer to CD?
You need a CD writer in your computer, and a software to burn the CD. Usually the software is already there if you have CD writer in your computer.
Then, of course you need a CD blank.
I assume you have CD writer in your computer. The procedure would depend on the software you have, but ...
Try this simplest procedure, open the folder of the pictures you want to copy. Then highlight it, right click mouse --> copy.
After put your CD blank in the drive, click my computer --> click CDRW drive (the drive of the CD or DVD writer). Right click --> paste. You will see the blurred files there. Then right click and choose "burn these file in CD". Just follow the instruction.
Let me know if you have problem.
