I have a TDK DVD/CD burner that my computer does not recognize. When I turn it on my computer makes a sound like it knows it has been turned on but when I go to burn a music cd it says that there is no CD...

hi blgard,

please ensure u have wired up this internal combo drive properly,
- that IDE cables and power cable is connected, that the jumper setting
is properly(if using this as a single drive without any harddrive connected to the same IDE cable jumper must be set to single!)
- that in BIOS both ODE channels are activated and drive detection is set to auto

when done this properly, the drives will be listed when booting up(press pause button, right before windows is loading, to see list)

if not, use the other channel(echange IDE plugs on the mainboard), retry
and see.

when booting the green lamp of the drive should light up shortly!

then goto windows/setting/hardware, run hardware detection/device manager and wait for the new device to show up. Make sure you have the driver CD ready for windows will ask for it, (if you don't have another cd-drive ready, copy content of cd onto usb-stick/thumbdrive instead )
le win search for the drivers on the cd/usb-device,
proceed installing, finish and reboot.

if now windows can't find the drive (see win explorer)
but it is listed when booting up, get the latest drivers from the manufacturer's homepage and reinstall drivers!

I hope this works for You!

Trying to burn some files to a memorex cd-rw. no computer will recognize that a cd is in the cd drive, even though one is in there. might be a formatting issue, but can't get any software to recognize cd,...

You might want to try the nero lite software. Most of these so called softwares do not reconize some burners. There is a site that tells you these problems. Try to google your (lets say hp cd) and then say EX: hp cd drive (try to use a model)..+not recognizing my burner, don't use spaces in the query.
Nero is a good burning software that enables most burners to be recognized.
If you have had Roxio .. this software is not very friendly to some of the burners out there. If you have this software get rid of it, uless you have the original disk or it come with oem on the restore disc.
PS Use Nero Lite it works the berries!

Need device drivers

You do not need any device drivers for this drive to work, you just connect to a USB 2.0 port using the usb cable or a USB 1.1, although this is a little slower. The software that is supplied with the writer is burning/authoring software programme, so you would have to download a free cd/dvd burning programme(just do a google search) or purchase one. Nero burning software is supplied with the unit, but as for playing dvd's you have windows media player for that.
