    After my Dvd stopped working I looked up the drivers. I even bought 'Driver Dective' to fix it. No go, because it's a system driver not a hardware, I guess. So I went to the emachines site, and tried to download a new driver. I was informed that my driver is the most updated. However, now I can't even find my dvd drive on 'My computer'. I've tried everything, I'm going out of my mind! I even bought a new dvd/cd writer, still... it doesn't work and I'm out 60.00. Can anyone help?

    Thank you.

Need install cd burner in windows xp


IDE or SATA connections ??????
To enable CD burning for your computer is a relatively simple process in Windows XP.
All you need is a CD burner drive installed in your computer, the disk with the drivers and software that goes with it and an XP-loaded personal computer.
Once your driver is installed, the process is almost automatic.
Here are the steps you should follow to begin creating your own CDs.

Check your system requirements before installing the CD burner and make sure that your system can handle the speed and memory requirements of the drive.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cord and remove the cover from the case.
Check the IDE cables inside your computer.
You may be able to connect the optical CD drive to the same ribbon cable as the hard drive if it is set up as a secondary or slave drive or to a separate ATA/IDE channel by a second cable.
Find an empty CD drive slot, remove the plastic cover from the outside, slide the drive in through the back and screw it in place.
If you are using a SATA CD burner, you'll need to connect the red SATA cable from the CD drive to the SATA connection on the motherboard or on your SATA drive controller card.
With SATA drives, you don't have to fool with jumpers.
Attach one end of the separate ATA/IDE cable to the motherboard if you have an IDE drive and the other to the back of the CD burner.
If slaving the drive, hook the drive to the second connection on the main hard drive cable to the burner drive.
If you do that, you'll have to set the jumpers on the CD drive to the "slave" position.
The drive's installation instructions will show you where the jumper pins are and how to set them to the slave position.
If using a separate IDE cable, just leave the jumpers in the factory setting.
If this is an older drive, you may have an analog audio cable as well that connects to the motherboard.
Follow the installation instructions for hooking it up.
Close the case and reconnect the power cord and other cables.
Turn on the computer and let it boot up.
Open the "My Computer" folder and make sure there is a new icon for the drive that you just installed.
XP will generally recognize it automatically, but if it doesn't you'll have to reboot the computer and open the CMOS setup program.
Follow the instructions for your particular PC to open the CMOS window.
Check the ATA channels to make sure both are enabled in setup and that, if you are using a master/slave setup, that the CMOS selections match that setup.

Reboot the system.
If the CMOS settings are correct, the XP operating system will set your drive so that it uses either digital CD playback (no audio cable) or analog playback (with audio cable). To check, open the "My Computer" window, choose "Properties" then "Hardware" then "Device Manager".
You'll see a "DVD/CD-ROM Drives" icon.

Click the plus sign next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives folder.
Click it, then right-click the icon for the new CD burner drive.
Now choose "Properties".
If you don't have an audio cable, left click on the selection box for "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device".

Insert the CD burner software disk that came with your CD burner.
Insert the disk that came with the drive into the CD drive and install the software following the prompts.
If the drive doesn't come with CD burner software, Windows XP comes with a lite version of Roxio's Easy CD Creator that detects blank CDs.
Just insert a blank CD in the burner and XP offers you a "burn CD" option when you have autoplay set up for the CD-drive.

There are lots of freeware burning software on the internet.

Toshiba PA3761U-1DV2 CD Drive Won't copy audio cd's. Says this type disc must be copied on the fly. How do i copy an audio CD???


Its not the drive, it is your software. Your drive is just a piece of hardware that does nothing on its own. Do google search to copy audio cd and use a program you find.

My Teac 1x1 dvd/d11A/kit burner/Dvw/D11A: will not copy Dvd, keep getting the message: "target drive not ready". Unit copies cd's alright.


whatever software you are using to burn dvd;s, make sure the right burner drive is selected. if it is selected properly and still having an issue. that means the dvd writer is busted and can't detect a blank disc place into it. in that case, have it replaced.

I purchased a pack of Memorex CD-R rrecordable 52X 700MB 80 min. discs from Staples and I was told I could use these to transfer pictures from my drive c. When I put the CD in to the drive D it asks me to...


Cd-R does not need formatting. They are ready to burn. There is probably a problem with your cdr drive.

A cd-rom drive is not a burner.

Are you sure you have a burner and not a cd-rom?

If you do have a burner, try another few disks. If it still says insert disk then your burner has crapped out.

When you open Nero select copy dvd. Select the dvd-rom as the read drive. Put the dvd to be copied in there. Select the dvd-rw as the write drive and place a blank dvd r or dvd rw in it the select copy.

Hi there check the source drive by placing a cd in the draw close n draw wait 2 seconds open and see if the cd has rotated. If not then the drive is faulty. If so you may still have a faulty source drive check by placing audio cd in there if sound great if not Faulty.
