Re: DVD drive problem

Install a proggy like Power DVD or a similar DVD program. Some DVD's have player programs on the DVD you have to explore the DVD and install the player. If you dont have such a DVD do a google for a Free DVD player software.

I can't play dvd player to my disc drive.what will i install?

This are the possible solution to your problem: 1. Try to checked the connectivity of your disk drive to power supply connector and IDE/ZATA cable connection to your motherboard. 2. If the first solution is OK then that's good, try now to check if the driver software of your disk drive is properly installed for the second step, if not then installed it by placing the cd to the cd rom then run. Follow the instruction for the cd if available. 3. To check the connectivity of disk drive go to the start button then select MY Computer then click it,from there you must need to look for this: DVD - RAM Drive (E:) it means now that your disk drive is connected properly. 4. If the step 1,2, and 3 are already done but still not functioning/playing also the checked the cd you insert if it is for dvd drive purpose if not replace for a new cd/movie that is compatible to dvd drive,and also checked for the cleanliness of the cd and sensor of the cd reader.
Hope this simple solution could help you to solve your problem. Mam/Sir don't forget me to rate me up I really appreciate what ratings you have given to me.

Hello felows ,, i have a XP lap top ,, my problem is that the cd drive reads dvd , cd -rom , audio cd ,, but when i put a dvd - raw , it wont read it ,, the cd is a hp deskjet 2050 j510 series to...

No all cds/dvd work in all cd/dvd drives. I suspect your drive cannot read that make of cd although anothers cd rom can. Try making a copy of the disk on someone elses pc and try that in yours and you will probably find it works. You could always copy the cd to a pen drive and install it on yours from that.

Hi, I have tried to save home movies made through a software program onto Maxell DVD-R's and DVD-RW's. A few from the packs I purchased worked fine, most were rejected by the computer and I'm advised to...

There are several reasons why it may not work:
  1. The read head of the drive is dirty. (probably this if the drive is used very frequently and is a few years old.)
  2. Are the manufacturer-provided drivers for your disc drive (if there are any) installed?
  3. Is the IDE/SATA cable on the back of the drive loose?
  4. Were the discs stored in a hot car?
  5. Was the disc packaging beat-up?
  6. You may just have a batch of bad discs.
These type of things can be a PITA to troubleshoot. I'd say your best bet is to first try a different software program, then a different brand of discs, then buy a cheap laser cleaning kit.

Why my dvd /cd not work properly , in hardware it show the it is woorking properly , but if i put any cd and insert it then after its not read the data in cd

Does the led on the dvd/cd drive flash after you've put in a disk? Go into "My Computer" and check that the drive is indicated there. If it isn't, then you would need to check the drive connector inside the computer to make sure it is connected properly and that it is not loose. If the drive is indicated in my computer, try another disk, perhaps a music cd, and see if the drive reads the disk. If it does, that tells you that you may have some defective disks. If the drive is detected in my computer, and no disks are read by the drive, then I would assume the drive is defective and replace it. Good luck!

Last night I installed windows 7. After that my LG DVD writer is not working properly. I can see the DVD RW icon. But when I insert DVD/CD it can't read it and shows the drive is empty. I tried a program...

You installed windows 7 with the same drive right? After logging in insert the same disc and check whether it is reading or not.If it is not reading check the data cable,(clean and reinsert).
I think the problem is with the drive. When drives gets old it can only read few discs. Writing will fail too. Get a new new drive, nowadays price appr below 1k.( SATA).

Hard Drive Installation

Hi emceedrive, I gather you are using ATA/PATA IDE hard disk drives? Each hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. Listed there are pin settings to set the IDE to Master or slave & Master with a slave. (We want to leave you're drive with windows on it alone). Not changing its jumper or not adding a jumper for now. We are not hooking up you're second drive just yet either.
Oh, please you're not an idiot either.
Unplug the power cable from the PC & open you're case.
Please open you're ASUS P4P800 SE manual to section 2.2.3 Motherboard layout. We want to connect the data cable to SEC_IDE1 first because once PRI_IDE1 is connected you will not be able to connect SEC_IDE1's data cable up to the DVD drive bay.
So grab a data cable for you DVD drive. It may have three connectors on it. Plug the connector that is the furthest from the other 2 connectors on the cable into the motherboard slot named SEC_IDE2. The data cable only goes in one way. Run the remainder of the cable up to the DVD player but do not connect it to the player yet. It is ok to fold the data cable which will help in routing it upwards to the DVD bay. Than connect the data cable to you're primary master IDE drive. (The one with windows already installed on it). The data cable should look just like the DVD data cable. Again you want to connect the furthest connector on the data cable into the MB slot named PRI_IDE1.
For now it’s best not to install the drive into the drive bay. Stand it up next to your case or lay it down flat with a sheet of paper under it. Connect the power cable to the drive. Plug in the PC's power cord & power up the PC & start pressing the delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads. You should see the Primary Hard disk drive listed at the main menu. Now go to the title Boot in the bios. Open boot order. The boot order of the devices should be as follows.
Boot device 1. (Floppy Disk Drive)
Boot device 2. (DVD Disk Drive) [None shown it’s not connected to the system].
Boot device 3. (Model number of your Primary IDE Master HDD).
Once this is set, save the bios & exit. The system should auto restart & windows should load. Let windows finish loading. Than shut down windows normally.
Unplug the PC's power cord. Since you had to remove a DVD drive you'll need to set the remaining DVD player's jumper on the drive to a Master & connect the data cable & power cord to it. (You may have to remove the DVD to see where the Master pins are located. It will be marked on the DVD player near the pins).
Now take you're new drive, do not insert it into the drive bay. Look at you're Master drive's white label. Set the jumper on the master drive first. It should be set as a Master drive with a slave.
Connect a jumper for this.
Go to you're new drive. Again look at its white label. Set this drive's jumper as a Slave drive. The Master drive should be connected to the end of the data cable. The new slave drive should be connected to the next in line connector.
Once all data cables & power cables are connected plug in the PC's power cord & boot the system, again pressing the delete key every two seconds until the boot main menu loads. Now you should see the Primary IDE Master drive & you're new Primary IDE Slave drive listed. You should also see the DVD as the Secondary IDE Master. Go to the title "Boot" again. Set the boot order as mentioned above. Save & exit the bios. Windows should load as it did before. Once windows has finished loading open windows Explorer & see if you're new slave drive is listed.
Shut down the system & unplug the power cord. Unplug the slave drive & mount it into its drive bay. Take a black marker & mark the side of the drive as slave. Disconnect the Master drive & connect it into its drive bay. Reconnect the data cables & power cables. Check all connectors before closing the case up. Re-connect the PC's power cord & boot the system. Everything should be fine. If you have a problem getting the data cable connected to the slave drive because its closer to the DVD drive as opposed to the Primary IDE Master drive you can make the slave drive a Secondary IDE Master (Change its jumper setting according to the drive’s label for Master with a slave) & connect the DVD player as a Secondary IDE Slave. (Change its jumper to slave). Change the Primary IDE Master drive’s jumper as a Master with no slave, single drive. That all.

Good luck emceedrive!
Take your time. Any troubles please post here.
You should be fine though.
