Samsung i386 dvd burner is not opening when i change windows xp to 7 pro


Do you know if the software for the burner is accepted by windows 7, and does the computer recognize the burner as being installed ?
You may have to update the driver for the burner to match windows 7 requirements.

Do I need software to get my comp to recognize a new Mad Dog Multimedia external DVD/burner drive?


Hello

Depending on which version of windows you are using, you might need to install the drivers for the device.

I know XP and older versions have a mush smaller internal driver database than windows vista or windows 7.

You don't necessarily need to install software to operate the device, just need the driver installed, then your computer will recognize the device.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

To solve this problem you need a third party burning software. Windows XP does not include the ability to properly recognize DVD's when you drag and drop and sees it as CDRW. When you bought your DVD, there may have been a disk with a version of Nero on it. It works well but there are also other third party software apps that will do as well. Even some free ones. Hope this helps.

Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i


Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.

TOSHIBA SDR6372 WONT DRIVE


They must have meant motherboard drive connector. s the connector that the drive attaches to. Which the connector itself should not need drivers. It should not be the connector either, especially since the error coming back is software, not hardware.

Driver won't work


Are you saying the bios detects the drive, but when you go to My Computer you cant see the drive listed? If so, Right click on My computer and in the menu select 'manage', In the Computer management window select removable media and activate the drive. It will then show in My computer, and be able to read/write cd's/dvd/s. If this does NOT work, then update the firmware for the drive. A lot of times when you buy a new drive, the firmware on it is out of date and the manufacturer has a new firmware out for it to fix computability issues with the collage of hardware thats out there.
