Hi, The problem of the CD drive missing (and sometimes the A drive likewise) has been known to come up from time to time when PCs were upgraded to SP2, on some Dell models, the InCD feature of Nero, or those with Roxio CD creator 5. A couple of things you can try: 1. Uninstall references to the CD in your Device Manager, reboot. Windows is suppose to autodetect and auto install such devices; 2. verify that the CD is detected in the CMOS/BIOS, save & exit; 4. download and merge to your registry a quickfix - 5. If installed, uninstall/remove InCD or Roxio CD creator 5. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Pls verify that the CD drive is initially recognized by the motherboard in your CMOS/BIOS setup. Further, check the cable and the power connector.

    Cheers.

I have a dell vostro 1500. I sudenly can't burn


Hello,

You may need to update the software you use to burn disk. Sometimes you can lose the needed drivers to burn your disk. Once you update the software, reboot and try again.

Good Luck

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized


Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
