DVD combo drive not working

My problem is twofold. I have a Dell 2400 and the DVD drive is not working. device manager says it is working properly nut when I insert a DVD I get "need to insert a disk" dialog box. Therefor I decided to replace the drive with a perfectly good lite-on combo drive a friend had spare. Replaced the drive and my Dell now would not recognose either the CD or the DVD combo drives. Put the old dysfunstional drive back in, still not working but Dell recognizes the drives again. I guess the DVD is the master and when replaced does not allow for recognition of the slave(CD). What are my options?

    Thanks for responding pcmaster, you were absolutely correct. It was the jumpers, however I don't quite get it. On the original setup both drives (Samsung CD and DVD) were set to cable select, so I set the replacement DVD drive to cable select too. When I set one to be master and one as slave the computer immediately recognized the new hardware and all is fine.
    Thanks for responding

    I have a Compaq SR1120 and the DVD drive is not working. The device manager says it is working properly but when I insert a DVD I get "need to insert a disk" dialog box. Does not work with CD's either although my CD drive works.
    Tried the "troubleshooter" and then disabled and then enabled the devise with no success. Strange that when I disabled the device and retarted my computer the driver was there again without my having to enable it. It is a Samsung SD-616E internal DVD drive. Any suggestions?

Did you set your jumpers correctly? How about using a different power Cable? Different Data Cable? If all fails try diagnosing the problem.

I have dell dimension 2400 desktop machine.. the dvr drive/cd rom icons are not showing in my computer window. not showing in bios even?? pls kindly give a solution for this..


Hello,

Try this quick fix :
Get a screw driver, unscrew your machine and remove your drive. If you cant do this by yourself,

just try and get a good technician to do it for you.
After this, power up your system normally without the drive connected.
Then shut down properly, and reconnect the drive, making sure that its firmly connected.
Then power on again and check it in the system BIOS if its now detected, then save and exit,

then boot your system properly again.Then when the system boots, just right click on my

computer, then properties, then select the hardwares tab, then click on device manager.
When you get to device manager page, try and locate DVD/CDrom Drives, then click on it, if your

drive is there, then just right-click on it, and select uninstall, and after this, on that same page,

click on 'Actions', and select "Scan for hardware changes". But if its not there. Just click on the

"Actions, and Then select "Scan for hardware changes".
This should automatically out it back inside your My Computer page.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

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.

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.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.

First check your BIOS setting...Be sure that your DVD drive is enabled...You can also see wether your DVD Drive is enabled in Device Manager.(Rigt click on MYCOMPUTER Icon, goto properties and goto Hardware Tab)
Check the cables (power & Data) connected properly to your DVD drive.
if problem arise again there would be aproblem with the data cable. So replace it with another one
