DVDRW416 not working

Hi please help, i have changed over my philips dvdrw1640 drive to my older dvdrw416 as the draw on the 1640 was not opening. But now the dvdrw416 does not seem to be working. The draw opens and closes ok and i can see the new drive in device manager, i also updated the firmware from 1.2 to 1.4, but when i place a blank disc in the drive neither the cd or the dvd lights, light up. I am using xp home. Any advice would be great.

Re: DVDRW416 not working

I believe this drive is faulty as it should try and spin light up upon power-up even if it only has the power cable connected.

The light is not flashing when i press the eject button and it won't open. What should i do?

hi this can be simple, look at the CD player's front panel, you should see a small hole, get something like a paper-clip open it out so it is roughly straight, then push it in the hole, the cd draw should come out as you push it, the other way you could go to my computer, right click the cd player, in the menu press eject and see if that does the trick, if not just do the above...hope this helps, please vote thanks

Panasonic SW-9571-CYY Ejects DVD RAM Cartridge.

Hi, I don't know if you ever solved this problem - but I had the same thing on my SW9571CYY. The solution is to replace the small drive belt inside the drive ( It is very thin and doesn't seem up to the job it has to do). Just remove the two screws on the rear, then the seven screws holding the plastic cover with the springs on it (don't worry - everything stays in place). Lift the disk tray out and the little belt is towards the front. I used an old belt from a broken LG GSA-5163D that was lying around. I think it would be difficult to find the correct spare so some people have even used a "O" ring with a slightly smaller diameter than the original belt.
Hope this helps Dwane4444

Hi there check the source drive by placing a cd in the draw close n draw wait 2 seconds open and see if the cd has rotated. If not then the drive is faulty. If so you may still have a faulty source drive check by placing audio cd in there if sound great if not Faulty.

Thanks J

CD Burning

Hi you can obtain a cd cleaning disk insert and follow instructions as the most common fault is dirt on the lens. If you do not get a cleaning disk open the cd draw and with a soft brush clean the little lens and then test. If this doesn't work check that the cd has rotated by placing one in the draw close wait 2-3 seconds and open see if the cd has turned. If it hasn't replace drive

Thanks J

CD DVD player keeps ejecting tray

don't know for sure but if the common reasons are that it opens when you move the laptop and when you get on the internet the power to the device may be changing when these actions occur. Moving it may cause an intermittant connection and getting on the internet usually draws more power from the power supply. If the batteries are ok the power supply voltage may be at the threshold at which these events make them fall to some value where the dvd burner thinks it's getting a message from the operating system to eject. Try it on a different computer and perform the same actions. If the problem stays with the burner it's the one with the problem, otherwise something in the laptop itself may be causing it.
