My satellite won't recognize a cd/dvd drive when I open up my computer there isn't a drive at all how can I fix this


If you don't have a cd/dvd rom drive installed on your laptop then of course your laptop would not reconize a cd/dvd rom. Is you laptop a Netbook, usually netbook does not come with a cd/dvd drive. To solve this case, you will need to buy an external cd/dvd drive and hook it up via USB.

LG DVD-ROM DRN80808. IT SAYS DVD ROM BUT WONT BURN TO DVD.


DVD-ROM means that it reads DVD's not that it burns DVD's. DVD-R,DVD+r, DVD-RW, DVD+RW are what you want to look for when it comes to DVD burners.

Non-system disk or disk error


Is you cd-rom drive shot - are you trying to boot up your computer through an xp or windows cd? If it is, it's not going to recognize and boot up. You'd be best getting a new drive - look around for someone with a Compaq Evo 800cp. They have the same exact cd-rom drive. Here are your compatible cd-rom devices:
TEAC DW-224E-A
or a Compaq DVD-ROM DRN-8080B
otherwise try a HP SD-C2612. I have these three drives. They all work really well.

Reads CD ut no not DVD's


There is no quick solution for this problem unless you consider buying a new internal drive quick solution. (They are pretty cheap now a days) It really sounds like your DVD lens is no longer working, which would cause no problems with reading of your CD's. Sorry for the bad news, but look on the bright side! You can upgrade to a lightscribe DVD burner!! :D:D (no more sharpies on the DVD/CD's you burn)

Please Insert disk?


Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.
