First you shutdown your computer, then disconnect all power cords. I don't know if you have a tower or a deskpro, with the tower just slide the panel out pulling from the back, you may have to remove a piece from the front with a tower. Pay attension to how your cd rom is hooked up, I don't know if this is a combo (cd/dvd/RW) if it's a combo, if it is a combo you would have to take out the old drive and replace with the new, just pay attenion to how the old drive is hooked there should be two cords to connect to .  If there separate drives there should be an empty bay.  Let me know how your doing, and if I can assist you more.........Thanks, Heidi

It sounds like either the drive is faulty or the external shell the drive uses is faulty. Try swapping the drive into another caddie.

Computor does not recognize my dvd burner

Remove the DVD drive and insert it back into the laptop. If the laptop still does not detect the DVD drive then it most likely it is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My cd and dvd player and burner is not working.When I put a cd in my computor nothing happens. I use to be able to play cd's and play dvd movies, but now it won't play them or burn them.Please help.

Equipment doesn't just stop working randomly unless it died. If you didn't install a new operating system or do anything drastic in terms of deleting files there is a good chance that you may need a new CD/DVD drive. They aren't that expensive though and are pretty universal between computers.

My computor cant read cd's but it can read DVD's. whats wrong with it?

Well ...the laser in dvd drives has to focus differently to read cd or dvds. Sounds like the focussing on the cd side has gone out. Not really fixable. Buy a new drive .... 18x dvd burners are only like $25 these days ...

Dvd rw or cd-r/rw not being reconized by computor

Hi there,

Uninstall the drive via Device Manager, restart your system and let Windows install it.
Update to the latest Windows Service Pack.
Download the most up-to-date Chipset drivers.

If none of these work, clean your registry.
This is free, and will fix. Choose Clean Up if you have XP, or choose Beta version if you have Vista.

Hope these solve your problem
