My cd door no longer opens on my dell dimension 2400. The light is off too.


Hi minic2,


Your CD-ROM must be defective.
Try to check the connection of the cables from and to your CD-ROM and motherboard as well as the power cable.
If it is still not working, I suggest you replace it with new.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

The Samsung CD-Rom SC148A on my Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize any discs that I insert. Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it, the driver is up-to-date, troubleshooting provided nothing,...


It might be dirt on the pickup lens, and you can try cleaning it. The best way to do that is to take the drive out, remove the cover and use a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaning solution. The cleaning discs you can buy aren't usually effective. But if you're going to go through all that effort, you may as well just replace the drive. If dirt isn't the problem, the most likely cause is that the laser power has dropped too low for the discs to be read, or the pickup has failed. In that case, you'll need to replace the drive anyway. A new CD-RW/DVD-RW drive is only around $20 (or something equally inexpensive in your local currency), and it's easy to change the drive, so it's really not worth worrying about trying to repair this one.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
