This is very easy to do, all you need is a philips screwdriver. Depending on if you have an OEM system (i.e., one from Dell, HP, etc) they might have some type of lever to open the case or a custom system which will use screws to hold on the side panels. If OEM, check your manuals or the manufacture's website. If custom, remove the screws from the back panel and remove the case side panels.

Before you begin taking the drive out, touch an unpainted metal part of the case to discharge any static electricity, this will prevent ESD damage to the components of the computer if you do accidentally bump them. Look for the existing DVD drive and remove the screws holding it. Then remove the cables from the back of the drive.

Install the new drive, replace the cables, install the screws, put the side panels back on and power the machine up. Your system should recognize the new drive and you are set.

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.

If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

My aspire 7741g 6426 laptop CD player does not work

The DVD player could be faulty or it is not making proper electrical connection.
Also check the DVD player driver, you may need to re-install the driver.
Try removing the DVD player and installing it again. If it still does not work then the DVD player is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop

This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.

Help... i lost my Insignia Restore DVD...

You will not be able to set all the programmes back to original as you have no disc and wont be able to get a replacement unless you have spoken to Insignia support, but you can format the pc to the operating systems original installation without the installed programmes by using a friends XP cd, but use you own product code number which will be on a sticker on your tower system, as its the license you pay for and not the actual cdrom.
