Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just bought a Liteon 8x external slim dvd writer for my dell inspiron 5100 laptop and it is supposed to just be a plug and play. When i plug the usb into the back of my computer it says that it cannott be installed because it is not recognized. When i go to the device manager and try to install it, it says Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Where to look to put a disc in my all in one dell


Many new computers do not come with a CD/DVD drive. This may be the case with your All-In-One Dell. Check your owners manual to see if a CD/DVD drive is included. You can also look on the left or right sides of the screen/monitor to see if there is a CD/DVD slot.

If you find that you do not have a CD/DVD drive, an external one can be purchase for $50-100 from numerous places.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

My dell dimension 5100 will not read CD's


If you have already cleaned the CD lens with a lens cleaner, just replace the drive with a new DVD writer.

Good Luck

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Your only solution would be to do an internet search for open source dvd authoring software. If you just want to copy and burn dvd's there is a lot of open source software, you just have to try them out to see what fits your needs. Open source is free.
