Re: TDK ded 840g

Look at the "back" of the device.
You'll see 40 pins (2 rows of 20 pins), 6 pins (2 rows of 3 pins), and 1 row of 4 pins.

The 40-pins is the "data" connection -- note that there is a "notch" centered in the plastic above the pins -- to ensure that the ribbon-cable can only be connected the _correct_ way.

The 4-pins is the "power" connection, note that 2 corners are beveled, again to ensure that the power-connector only fits in the _correct_ way.

The 6-pins are labelled: MA(ster) & SL(ave) & C(able)S(elect).
Move the small jumper to the 2 'CS' pins.

With the computer turned-off, connect the "data" and "power" cables.

Windows should "detect" this "new hardware", without needing a CD, and fully install the device.

The Disk Tray will not open (TDK DED 440 DVD driver)

The lubrication inside your device may be insufficient or some mechanical problem has occurred inside preventing the device to open. Now, look at a very "small hole" near the Tray's front cover. If you see it, get a very small pin or even a needle to fit to that small hole. Now, press the "open" button in your device and then push that pin or needle in the hole at the same time to help the device to open.

Tdk dvd rw aid+420n

this is the 420N, not the 440N?  
is this an internal or external burner?

what operating system are you using?  on Windows XP, there's a good chance that you can just use the default drivers for that...

the best set of drivers i can find is here:

but most of those are firmware updates, or for slightly different models.

I cannot produce a finalized music cd able to be hear on regular cd player

the .wav file has to be converted to .mp3 or .cda prior to burning in order to hear it in a regular cd player. Those applications have the ability to turn .mp3, and .wma to .cda format, which is what normal cd players read but they lack the ability to convert .wav to .cda
