Pen drive have not inserted


Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

If you have an older operating system then go here to download the driver:

MY DVD-RAM is not appearing in MY COMPUTER but seems okay though. I can't access, it doesn't appear but it boots from start up like putting booting cd to it seems okay. I do not know exactly what...


Okay you tried using 'regedit.exe. Now try this;

Left-click on Start, then right-click on My Computer. (Windows logo button, Computer, for Vista and Win7)

Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the fly-out menu.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click on Mashita DVD-ROM U870BJ

(Yes I know you have been to Device Manager. Just wanted to make sure all i's are dotted, and t's are crossed)

Left-click on Properties.
Now left-click on the Driver tab.
Left-click on Uninstall.

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up.
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device.
It's okay. Left-click on OK.

Close ALL windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut the computer down normally. (NOT restart)

Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.
When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware".

And perhaps another pop-up, "Found Mashita DVD-ROM device"

Post back your findings in a Comment.

My DVD drive has suddenly stopped working. When you put in a DVD the drive makes a noise like it's about to boot up, but then it doesn't boot up. Windows explorer is showing that there is a DVD drive, but...


1. If you have AnyDVD installed this will happen if you don't have it running in the backgorund. 2. If you're not using AnyDVD, mostly likely your drive has gone bad but you should try to uninstall the device and its drivers first, power down your computer pull the drive, boot up you computer so it sees that it's gone, then power down your computer, reinstall the drive, reboot the computer, let windows auto-detect and install the drive and its built-in drivers then go online and find the most updated drivers and firmware for your model of drive. The manufacturer's website will have them. If after you install the new drivers and it still doesn't work it's definitely ready to be replaced.
Good luck!

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up


I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?
