The Rewriter is a USB connected accessory and should therefore be connected automatically, and no drivers will be necessary with later versions of Windows. The drive came with a cable with 2 USB plugs on one end. Not all USB ports carry enough power to run a rewriter, in which case it is necessary to plug both into USB ports to get sufficient power for the rewriter to run properly.
Later versions of Windows allow you to burn files, music etc to Cds, DVDs, but if you want a separate piece of software for this, try here: Free Burning Studio freeware download Free software to burn rip audio CD...

Check all computer connections and cords. Is the powerstrip for surge protector light indicator bar (usually inside the off/on switch itself) on? All it takes is a pet to walk over it or a foot to bump a cord and break the power connection. Mine do it all the time. Check the power on/off button on the printer to see if it accidently got powered down.
Solution One: Reset the printer
error message might disappear after you turn off the printer and then
turn it on again. After you make any adjustments to the cartridges or
the printhead, reset the printer in order for the error message to clear
completely. Follow these steps to reset the printer.
Press the Power button (
) to turn on the product.
With the product turned on
, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
Wait at least 15 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.
If the product does not turn on by itself, press the Power button (
) to turn it on.
first pull off the cover to see if the cord arced itself out to the frame you probably want to buy a new cord if you have had some electical experience you can repair other wise call a technician you will also have to check if there is any damage to any control boards hopefully it just arced itself out and burnt one the lines
Have you tried the following steps?
1. Power off your computer.
2. Power off the printer and remove the power cord.
3. Check the cable connection between the printer and the computer to make sure it isn't loose.
4. Put the power cord back in the printer and power it up. Do all lights show up as normal? Green? Or are some flashing?
5. Power on your computer.
6. Under the printers folder, right click the installed printer and go to properties. Print a test page.
How is the printer connected? USB or parallel port?
It's possible to get Windows 98 to recognize the USB memory stick, but there will be several technical problems to deal with.
A much simpler way may be to remove the hard drive from the tower and connect it directly to the laptop with an external USB-to-IDE adapter. In this configuration your files can be copied directly from the old hard drive to the laptop. Depending on your comfort level with working on the internal parts of your computer, you may need assistance from someone with computer service experience to do this. One example of the device you need is the "Bytecc BT-200 USB to IDE Cable with Power Adapter"....or you can search online to find this or similar devices by using the search terms USB - Hard Drive - External - IDE - Adapter. They are generally available for under $20.
here is the link for the user manual;
Page 11 states that there is a seperate power cord, and shows the connection port. Unfortunately there is no picture of the power cord itself, it may be a standard cord alone, or it may include a power transformer - the manual is unclear.
All the contact details for dell are included in the manual, or contact them on;
Hope this helps :)
I have the same problem when connecting my ipod and usb hard drive. I think the card is just a piece of crap. I've also tried a different card before but had no luck either. I guess its time to get a new laptop.
