Re: USB DVD ROM no detected

You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.

External DVD writer in Compaq V3424TU notebook

It is very simple to install a new internal DVD/RW. There is only one screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the module in. Remove that screw, slide the old unit out, and insert a new rom. Don't forget to replace the retaining screw.

Hope this will solve your problem, and please feel free to rate this advice.

Good luck

Try installing a DVD rom. The sony unit installed in your laptop is a cd rom/burner. Cd roms will not play DVDs.

Detects CD but not DVD

Hi Chopadepve,

Please try this method but be more careful during working out on it:

Since your DVD drive reads cd's, but not dvd's It shows that the hardware works fine. Now we need to Edit the Registry to fix this problem.

1) click the start menu
2) click on "run"
3) type "regedit" and click ok
4) go to string key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5) delete "upper filters" and "lower filters" in the right side window.
6) right click my computer in the start menu.
7) click properties
8) go to the hardware tab
9) click device manager
10) expand the dvd/cdrom drives
11) right click the dvd rom and click uninstall
12) Reboot PC

Windows should automatically install a clean ROM drive after the reboot otherwise Open the device manager window and click "scan for hardware changes". DVDs just read fine if you have the correct DVD decoders.

If no luck then might be DVD read head wiped out.
