    What is the make and model of the CD-R/DVD you are trying to get to work?

    What OS are you running? You can contact Dell at 1-800-915-3355 and talk to a Service Tech who may help you. You will need the "Service Tag" and the "Express Service Code" numbers found on a small decal on the back or side of your machine. THEY ARE PRETTY HELPFUL AND HAVE ALL THE DRIVERS YOU WILL NEED RIGHT THERE.





    GOOD LUCK.

You find the E521 support page here:
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/product_support/en/product_support_central?c=us&l=en&systemid=DIM_P4_E521

There you can click drivers and you see a list of hardware componentes. Select "CD/DVD"

There you can find the firmware and drivers to all the cd/dvd hw that the DELL E521 comes with in default. If for some reason you are unsure which to choose, at the TOP of the page you see this line:

S
ervice tag: Add or edit service tag

If you click that you can type in your own service tag (find it on the bottom of your laptop), and the dell center is able to check in the database which cd/dvd was built into your computer and shows you only the drivers for your specific laptop.


Please rate if this solution was of help.:)

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

DVD burner drawer will not open every time the button is pressed. When it does open a disk must be in the tray in order to get it to open again.
