Question about Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer

Inspiron 530s desktop - dvd/cd driver suddenly stopped working

Hi there, Just doesn't read anything put in the driver, or photocard from camera. Can't burn music onto a disk. It used to display a screen as soon as anything was put into the driver, asking what you wanted to do....ie: view pictures. When I tried to burn some songs onto a cd from a folder in my windows media player (as done on many occasions previously), it just wouldn't burn.

I have windows home vista......any light shed on this would be very much appreciated! Have a lovely day, Alli

My dell Inspiron 530s goes to power save mode screen is black can't see anything fan is on what can I do


Do you get a screen if you boot from the CD/DVD drive using the Windows installation CD/DVD disc. If not, you probably dis-lodged
a cable or plug when installing the drive.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S desktop. My card reader simply stopped working. Doesn't read any card I insert. I checked the drivers....all seem to be installed and working. Couldn't find any problems. Help!


Found another solution online that worked...tried it, and it worked for me. Checked for drivers that needed updating or reinstalling. Reinstalled the driver. Shut down computer...rebooted and it worked. Don't know if it will continue to read cards, but for now...yea!

DVD drive will not respond to any form of media inserted into the drive. My computer is a Dell inspiron 530s. I'm running Windows XP


did you install the driver of your motherboard?if so,you need to download and install the dvd decoder for your media from the manufacturers site. if you cannot play even cd, the problem is in your dvd drive.if your dvd drive comes with a driver then you have to install it.actually there are more solutions to your problem try follow the solution I've mention first,and if its still not working post your reply and i will give you another solution.

Problem with Inspiron 530S Desktop Reading CD's


If your computers are relatively old then they may not be able to burn CD's or read CD's that were burned. A new CD/DVD burner is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
