I was just given a Dell Dimension 3000 by my daughter, who said there was no problems with it. It has a CD-Rom drive and a DVD-RW drive. When I power it up and click on MyComputer, neither of these drives...


They probably can't load because they are loading at the same time and XP can't sort it out.
Remove the cable from the CD ROM and re boot but enter the BIOS and make sure it is no loonger there.
The nachine should load the DVD rom.
You can try adding the CD rom now, it may work but being XP it may grab the wrong driver again and hang up.
Download new drivers from Dell.com
Hope this helps.

COMPUTER CD PLAYER WONT READ PLAY OR BURN CDS


Is the device detected in Device Manager withour conflict? Go to Control Panel, click System, Hardware, Device Manager, and click the + beside DVD-CD-Rom drives. Locate your drive, right click and select unistall, then reboot. If if does not work after reboot, try updating CD Firmware from http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=ca&cs=cadhs1&l=en&s=gen&catid=&impid=&os=WLH&osl=en&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_CEL_2400. If not, you may need to replace the drive, if you confirm the IDE cable is connected and working fine.

My computer wont let me install OS


You have to reboot and tap F2 to go to BIOS select option to enable the Secondary controller and to detect the proper IDE Devices?

Also make sure the IDE cable is firmly attached and the you have pin 1 alligned properly at all 2 (or3) connectors. And if you have 2 IDE devices attached make sure one jumper ( in HD or CD ) is set to master and the other to slave.

If none of this works, try a known good CD rom drive that you can try and try switching with a known good cable.

Once the system recognize the CD ROM youre set to go !

Both Drivers for CD Roms wont work for Dell Dem 2400


The two devices are both hooked to your secondary IDE channel. It could be that the IDE controller driver is corrupt or missing. Go to the Dell website, download and reinstall the CHIPSET driver, which includes the IDE channels. Then reboot. The driver page is here:)

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_CEL_2400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Failing that, verify that the drives are visible in the BIOS setup. When you restart and see the Dell splash screen, press F2 to go into the BIOS setup, come down to Drive Info and see if the model is reported for the two opticals. Perhaps it got disabled there, but not likely unless you were changing settings.

Another possibility is whether you removed and CD/DVD recording software recently (Sonic, Roxio, Nero) as these may have changed the registry entries related to your CD/DVD drives.

If nothing works, please post the specific error code reported by the Device Manager. Right click on each drive in the Device Manager and it should be listed in the device status box.
