Pc not recognizing dvd+-rw

I've called Dell and they sent out a replacement. However, this one is not being recognized either. They're saying that it is the image but I have 3 other PC with the exact same hardware/software and the other 3 are not having any issues.

Please help!!!

    Thanks David but I did try that.

    Derek, I'm sorry, I should've been more descriptive of my issue. It is SATA.

    Just got it figured out. I just absolutely LOVE it when the network security DO NOT give us (PC Techs) any info at all.



    They have that PC (and a few other) on lockdown through Group Policy.



    Thank you all very much for your help!!!

If this device connect with an IDE cable (wide, thin cable) then there's a possibility you may need to set the jumper on the back of the device to either Master or Cable Select.

Otherwise you may need to go into the computers BIOS and configure it to see that device.

DVD-RW Not recognized in Dell Inspiron 1525


Turn off your laptop, take the dvd-rw drive out of the laptop and then reseat it back into the slot so it snaps into place. Turn the laptop back on and make sure its recognized in My computer.

If it is reocognized then try to burn again and see what happens. If it still gives you the same message, see if your drive will read regular dvd movies. If it doesn't then that means the laser is going bad and the drive will need to be replaced.

Your laptop has a built in dvd-rw so it can definitely recognize the dvd 9 format. Any dvd-rw can recognize that format regardless of the laptop or desktop computers.

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
