Re: dvd drive on dell computer

If you have not recently added any software or did any other changes to your system, try this first. Shut down your computer and open the side panel with a Phillips screw driver. Look for the connectors for the drive and power main (the small one). Unplug them both and reconnect them and make sure that they are firmly in place. If this fails, your burner does not work and needs replacing 6a6a5ed.jpg

My cd/dvd rom no longer reads or burns

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs

I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's

DVD drive not working. It will only play DVD R's but doesn't even read any DVD RW's. It also will not burn/erase on any DVD type. Have opened and unplugged the drive - didn't work. Dell told me to restore...

in the past I have seen that drives burn disks that are not compatible/ readable with other drives. The strange part being that both drives are from the same manafacurer (LG) puchased within one month of another. Regretfully, I found no solution for this...
