Question about Teac (DW-224EA-AM6) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
When I put a DVD in the drive nothing happens, if I try to open the drive manually it opens to a blank page that asks if I want to write files to this drive, It will read Cds fine and when I go to properties it says "This device is working properly" . Under device type it says "DVD/CD-ROM drives", but under manufacturer it says (Standard CD-ROM drives).
A little info that may be helpful is that (My Pc is a HP Pavillion a350n and I was having this problem and a few others with the original boot disks for this PC, so I purchased a windows XP pro OS and did a clean install, I have uninstalled it and restarted so that it reinstalled, still the same problem, I ran Tweaknow reg cleaner, it found problems but not with this. I know it almost has to be a software conflict but have no idea how to find the conflict. Please is there anyone who can help.
Okay, this problem is easy.
First of all, check to see what type of media the drive supports in DVD. Is it +R or -R.
Next, not all BIOSes recognize DVD drives. From the picture you displayed there, it looked like a laptop DVD drive.
Make sure that the BIOS does support it by going to the manufacturer's website and look at the replacement parts.
If it does support this type of drive, but not from the initial product, you may need to upgrade the BIOS so it can recognize the drive.
This should solve your problem.
