Hmmm...that's a set up issue..

restart machine..and when screen appears, use F2, then go to set up screen(looks like an old DOS screen) and tab down to drives..should be PATA-1..if it's there..turn it off and then back on(follow screen prompts for this)

then start it again

if that doesn't get it done, then you have an unhappy drive.

The dora dvd player works on other tv's but when i hook it up to the dora tv it doesnt. I plug it in corectly. Does it have to be on a certain station to work?

Connection to "Dora TV"could be 'opened' [internal wire inside TV could be damaged). If the 'DoraTV' works like a regular TV,then look for a "INPUT" switch on TV or remote control if it uses one.

Have a HP DVD 840d burner, my pc only recognizes the cd rom not the dvd burner. any help to get this to recognize my dvd burner.

If you load a commercially-produced DVD disk into the drive, does it show in "My Computer" or do you get an "insert disk" message?

If it shows, right-mouse click on the icon, and choose "Explore".
Does it show files/folders, or is there an error-message?
