Re: drive bay comes out

Your drives firmware is damaged and needs to be replaced by an updated version otherwise it will have to be replaced if still ejecting at start up.

Target drive not ready

This message means that the burning drives are not recognizing the blank media. There are a few things to try and remedy this though the unit may need repaired.
First, try using all of the duplicator bays by burning to another drive bay. If all other drives burn fine then the one drive may need to be replaced.
2nd, try a different blank CD or using a different brand. The most common fault for this message is a bad blank disk.
3rd, It is OK per Microboards to open the unit and check for a loose drive cable. A loose cable can cause this error too.
Finally, try cleaning the drive bays by using compressed air to blow any dust out of the system.
If the error still continues then call Microboards tech support at 952 556 1639 to set up a repair.

How do i install this drive?

Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.

Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.

Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

The burner will work with no problems on a slow port but when connected to a hi-speed port the message that it is a unknown device pops up. I keep re-booting the computer till it finally works right but...

first up

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure that the dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or
your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps

Tray drive idler gear stripped

I have not been very successful i rebuilding these dvd drives and to tell you the truth it is no longer financially feasable considering I can order a Samsung Multi-format cd/dvd drive for around 25 dollars on E-Bay. You can always just pull the tray out and push it in, but eventually down the line that will start causing problems. Depending on your system, replacing or upgrading the Optical drive is one of the easiest upgrades you can do.

CD's won't burn right!

Try reinstalling the drivers for your CD bay.

Either the CD that came with the bay, or find them online ....

Right-Clickie your My Computer and find the name of your CD Bay in the list on the Hardware page ... delete it, or right-clickie and uninstall the driver.

Reboot the computer and it should re-detect the drive, or find the drivers you copied earlier.

If that doesn't solve the problem, then it might be the type of CDs that you are using. Have you changed brands lately??

I want to manually open my sony DRX 82ou

almost all computer CD drives comes with a small hole at the front near the eject button. A straightened paper clip will do after powering in down or not.

It will be a tad tricky, as most people are reluctant to open up their cases for the first time.
Make sure you have the mounting screws and you have a jack free. Plug in the cord(s) to your Drive, then screw the drive to the bay. If the drive comes with an installer disc, install it once the computer boots up.
It's not very complicated, but if you need help, find a computer pro to guide you through the process.

Good Luck!
