Larger Hard Drive in DRC8030N

I opened up my RCA DRC8030N to clean the dvd burner lens because it quit recognizing blank and some commercial dvd's. That fixed that problem for now. I noticed the hard drive is just a standard 80gb IDE hard drive.

Is it possible to put a larger hard drive in the RCA DRC8030N?

Yes you can replace the hard drive with a larger one. I have a 500 gig hard drive in mine. You can do the same thing with the DVD drive.

HP DVD writer 1140D doesn't recognize DVD's thinks drive is empty. Research on driver versions shows it's using Microsoft drivers. I would like to have the HP drivers to download that came with the DVD but...


all dvd writers have drivers on windows...and are installed automatically when windows is installed..If it started not to recognize dvd-es ...specially the ones burned in data format with multiple movies (avi ) ..even burned on it ...but sees the original ones..or sees the cd'es ..than the issue is with its lens ..and either you need a cleaning disk to clean it up ..or it is gone ...and need to be replaced..I personally have to do with something like this sand tried to update firmware ..installed original driver from the support site ,,and all the same ..Clean the lens and see how it is behaving ..and if it does the same ..just replace it ..cause they do have limited life time..otherwise you will end up with a lot of frustrations and no results...

Desktop DVD fails to recognize "commercial" DVDs


Hello my friend,i can think only 2 things.The first thing is the region code.So right-click My Computer then select Properties,select the Hardware tab,click the Device Manager button and go to DVD/CD-ROM drives,double click to open the tree.Then choose your dvd burner and double click or right click and properties to open the dvd properties.Go to the dvd region code and select the code/country that the dvd supports and click OK.Also you can download a program called region free.The second thing is that your drive supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM so if the disc is something else then is not supported by your reader/burner.

Won't turn on, just says "Hello" and will load no further


This is due to one of the IDE devices inside (Hard Drive or DVD drive) not sending the requires "I am Ready" signal to the main board while the DVR does a power on self test. With the hundreds of units I have come across, 99% of the time it is due to a faulty DVD drive. These "Loader" brand DVD drives were on the cheap and when they give out, the unit does not go past the Hello. You can verify this by replacing the the DVD drive with any other DVD burner or DVD drive or even a CD drive that comes from a computer (IDE connector). The only fix for this is to replace the drive or simply connect an old CD drive inside and not use the DVD properties of the DVR, only the hard disk recording/playback.

Dwq 58a not recognizing blank media


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

Finalized disk won't play in other players


You might check your burner to see if it is working correctly. If you are using the same media and it worked before, perhaps the burner or the burning software is not working correctly.

the DVD Drive is bad. Replace it with the same (which I haven't been able to find anywhere on the internet) or one off the shelf (a little jerry-rigging is involved) and it will work. Everything else should be fine. This exact same thing happened to me.

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.


Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.
