Generic problem for all Memorex DVD Players

Hi I just installed a Memorex external drive to my HP desk top following the set up instructions. The instructions say to "Follow The On Screen Instructions to Complete the Installation". I never got any on screen instructions. I rebooted, and still no instructions. It does not work.
I need help!!!
Same exact problem and these suggestions are not working. Any other ideas?

    Are you using a set-up disc of some sort? (Driver disc?) If you are, then I can guess what happened...

    USB connection,correct? 
    How does it get power, It's own electric cord and transformer? 
    You received an install disk with it or it is an OEM model?

I assume you are running windows. Windows installs external devices automatically. You need to reset your USB devices. You need to uninstall all your usb devices. Go to computer manager/device manager and select all USB devices and unistall them. Go to the start menu, click on run type compmgmt.msc. Find all your USB devices on the right side. Follow the instructions for each device to uninstall them by double clicking and then select uninstall. once you uninstall, click on the icon to scan for hardware changes located on the sub menu. Your operating system should recognize new hardware or reboot and the operating system should install them automatically again.Do not connect the device until you are logged on completely, connect it and the operating system should recognize the new hardware and install it automatically. Try this, I hope it helps.

Install desk top operating system


If you need to re install windows 7, it is best to format the drive and start from scratch, if you need your files, first create a backup on an external drive , and moved your files including, documents and settings folder.

You need to have a software driver download for the Memorex DVD-RW and Lite-on CD ROM. You can have it from the Internet. Just type at the Search engine blank (Download for driver of Memorex DVD-RW). Upon reaching the site, Choose the one with Windows Vista OS. Then, thereafter you can get the download for Lite-on CD ROM. After having the
download, go back to your PC menu and open the
download to install it. Once installed, test it. And job
well done.

I never set the parental control but somehow it is on and I need the password to remove it


Did you make your own password or is it the generic one? Try either 0 by count 1,2,3 etc or start with 1,2,3 on up to what amount of numbers you need to enter. Not sure if that will work but I had one that was set and was the generic code. Just count from 1 on up.

Generic problem for all Memorex DVD Players


if it is the usb external means check whether the USB ports are working properly or not ...

if you are connecting and trying from the front usb then once you try inserting in the backside port of the cpu ..

normally the external drives are only detected by the windows it is cannot be bootable at the startup before starting of the operating system ...

so you must be using minimum windows XP and if you are using it then connect it after booting into the windows ..

then it will detect a new hardware and you can start using the external drive ...

if there is any manufacture cd install the software if any ..

if you still persist the same problem then check it in other system ...

if you still persist the same problem then there may be some manufacture defect just take replacement as you will be having the warranty ....
