Re: Not working

Is the drive connected propperly ?
look at the jumper settings if its IDE

if it is connected propperly and still doesnt show up
( verify its showing up in My COMPUTER)
try it on anoter PC to see if it works.

Just cause its new doesnt mean it works

If it works and you did connect it propperly the let me know


Click START, (right Click) my computer, select properties then device manager, it shoud show up in DVD/CD-ROM drives
if it doesnt then right click on anything and scan for hardware changes. If it doesnt show up then it isnt connected propperly.

I have a Tdk burner worked fine until my husband had his buddy install some other burning software now my burner doesn't read there's a cd in it and it keeps opening up...still looking for original tdk...

Installing different burning software should not really affect reading capabilities of the burner. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to have two burning software packages on the same computer.

You can try uninstalling the new software that was installed on your computer, the reboot the system and check if that worked. If Windows does not open the disc automatically, you can go to My Computer and access the disc by double clicking on the TDK drive.

If you continue to have the same problems, please make sure the DVD burner is connected properly to the computer.

I bought an LG external DVD burner model GE20LU10 yesterday. It says on the box that it would work on Mac. Nothing inside on the manual or CD says anything about it working on a Mac. I've called...

install an LG burner on a MAC
if the burner shows as connected or mounted on your screen you just have to install or use your burning utility i.e. nero, sonic, or whatever you have installed on your mac.
when you open the program and have your files already processed and ready to burn, it will ask you what unit you want to use for the task, open the menu and select your burner, click next or continue, the encoding will start, when it finishes the encoding the burner will start.
if you are using a USB connection it should work with your software

My lap top already has a dvd burner that is playing up, I've bought a second hand dvd burner without an installation cd, how can I still activate the external burner?

You can still use and activate your external burner. Most external DVD burner drive is USB right? So you just plug in the usb plug of your burner in your laptop and it will automatically detected by the system and install the neccessary driver for it to work properly. If you do have an existing burner software in your laptop then you can also use it for burning DVD's and CD's to your external burner but if you don't have any, then install a burning software like NERO or any. Hope this could help you. Please don't forget to rate me..:-) Thanks..

I want to know if a sata dvd writer can burn dvd


Are you kidding hehehehe it's a joke, Of course it can burn, if your unit is a DVD writer it can burn a DVD no matter if it is a IDE or SATA type of cable connector. Be sure that you will have a burner software (like Nero, power to go, etc.) installed in your computer.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!

Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
