Honestly, if its not under warranty, you can buy a brand new DVD Burner for cheap.

My dell dimension 2400 isnt acknowledging cds in the e drive yet it says that the drive is ok. Can I get it to read them again?


Is it a CD drive, a CD burner, a DVD drive, a DVD burner or a Blu-Ray drive? Have you tested all types of cds for the drive? Do certain ones read and noth others? What version of Windows are you running? Did it stop working after a program install or a system crash?

DVD SOHD-16P9S drive doesn't read any kind of CD or DVD


hi,there is no problem in drivers .
check the hardware parts
there are 2 possibilities in your case
1.the laser beam which reads the dvd or cds is malfunctioning
2.ensure that the cable & buses are properly connected

..
in case laser beam is damaged you got to get it repaired for proper functioning



all the best

The pc won't burn cd's seems like it doesn't recognize cds or dvds


Does the cd/dvd drive read cds? This is a good test to ensure that the drive is functional.

Sometimes, generic cd/dvd burners do not recognize certain types of blank discs. Try another type of
brand blank discs, it should work.

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4040N drive in stalled in an emachine Laptop, the drive will read data,cds music and dvd movies, but can not burn either cds or dvd...Depending on which program i use for...


well there could be a few things you can try
1) update the firmware and see if it works any better
2) try brand name DVD-R disks and CD-R disks
3) try an updated hack firmware such as these http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GWA4040N
4) try Nero Lite. it is free and it supports almost any drive. http://www.nero.com/eng/downloads-nero9-free.php

I would not worry about the driver as they normmally would not need any.

HP dvd740b does not detect blank CDs and DVDs


Hi,

i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.
