New CD R/RW drive will not let XP Boot

My CD drives quit trying to install a LG CED-8083B CD R/RW. When I try to boot up the computer it gets stuck on the Dell Screen and does not boot. Is it searching for the driver?? I have a old Dell Dimension 4100 with windows XP professional version 2002, service pack 2. Thanks, Joe B.

Hi,
on the back of the new drive usually is a set of tiny pin jumpers, and a diagram for it on the drive, you might have to switch the pin jumper to "cs" cable select or "slave" usually master is for the hard drive. If that didnt do it then while the computer is booting hit f-8 or maybe f-9 and get into your bios area, search for boot sequence and study the area in there and see if your drives listed, try and change the config there so your hard drive(c) boots first, then usually your new drive. hopefully one of those ideas gets ya going, good luck

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

You need a copy of Nero 8 or 10 9 doesn't work so good. Nero should have come with the drive if you got it new.
Hope this helps:

I have a LG CD-R?RW Drive CED-8080B/CED-8083B that has outdated software and reads burn process failed (power calibration error). I,m a beginner - don't know what this means. Need new drive? Update...


Sounds like you need to either update the firmware on the drive, or the drive is malfunctioning physically.

I'd just buy a new drive. Those things are very cheap now a days. Don't waste your time trying to fix it unless you can find an easy fix.

Acer 5102 with xp, It wont boot from cd.


Make the DVD your 1st option for booting. It's also your CD drive but is identified as the DVD RW. Once this is made your default (make sure you accept and save the change before exiting) with your installation disk in the drive, boot up and it will read off the disk and prepare your system for install. If your disk is bootable, this will work.

All of a sudden my computer lost contact with CD and DVD it sees them but will not load drivers. this is on a LG CD RW CED - 8083B and a Compac DVD - 115.


Go to start and right click on My computer then properties/device manager. Go to DVD/CD ROM and right click and select uninstall.
Reboot your system and windows will locate it and reinstall it.
Do this one drive at a time.

Install to computer problem


Hi,

Sounds like a case of jumper settings. If the CD-RW was installed as secondary IDE to an existing hard drive which is the Master, pls set jumper to SL. They are located at the rear of the CD unit between the IDE connector and the audio out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

JUMPER SETTINGS


The settings are pretty much universal, This comes from memory:

there are 6 pins
s m c
. . .
l
. . .

So you connect the first 2 pins. shown as .l.
If my memory is incorrect then try the middle one
if that doesnt work try the last possible combo.

trial and error my friend :) You can do it.

Nero cr-rw burner install


is your hard drive the master on the primary cable? You shouldn't need a digital audio cable unless you want digital audio. Are you using Nero software witht he drive? may have to re-install the software, or better, uninstall it, clear the registry with CCleaner (free download on the web) and then try a fresh install.
