Look on the back of the drive and move the jumper to CS (cable select) or master if it on the line by itself Or slave if it on the same line as another drive.

MY LG DVD drive not playing or recording. Does not show existence on MY Computer list


Better first checking the connections to it. It might have somehow become disconnected.
Then do a hardware search.
Also look at your hardware profile, see if there are any unknown devices. You might have to re-install drivers.

I cannot register my kindle and cannot link up to wifi. I have tried connecting it to my computer, but nothing is working. With this, I cannot load any books onto it. Can someone please help me? Thank...


Usually the Kindle comes pre-registered to the name used for purchasing it.

However, to register to a different name, open http://www.kindle.com on a PC. Log in using your existing Amazon account or create a new one, following the directions on the web page.

If your Kindle was not registered yet, you can add your device by clicking on "Register a new Kindle" and enter your serial number.

If the device is registered already, it should show up in the list displayed.

MY BOOK ESSENTIAL is connected on computer with the usb cable and is also pluged in a power socket.The blue light is on but MY BOOK is nowhere in the system.It's not where it used to be in My computer and...


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is problematic.

Open the enclosure, to get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access W.D.'s web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive. If the warranty still is valid, they will replace it, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and transplant it into the enclosure, to "resuscitate" your device.
Or, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- buy a new MyBook through their web-site, and get a discount on your purchase.

Won't connect to computer; turns on just fine, but computer doesn't even register it. have tried connecting it to 2 computers, with no success.


Sounds like the internal interface card in the hard drive has failed. Luckily if you can hear the hard drive power up then your data is salvagable.

You have a couple of choices:

If you have the item still under warranty then get it replaced and they should provide either a data recovery or replacement of the internal board.

If not then open up the casing and disconnect the drive from the internal power and data cables. Purchase a USB to hard drive cable, which will allow you to transfer the data to another PC, or purchase a replacement hard drive enclosure, which may not look as good as the one you have, but will be just as functional. Enclosures can be purchased from a computer store, Amazon, Ebay etc for very little money.

Dvd740 not reading DVD+R disk


It sounds like the drive has failed but before you rip it out and trash it you should check that it is listed in your hardware via control panel , system. If it shows up as fine then try burn somthin simple like a regular CD not dvd. if that works the problem may be with your burning software.

if its not listed in hardware or has an exclamation mark by it the its time to open the computer case and check the connections to the drive. remove each connection one at a time and re-connect before moving onto the next one. switch the computer back on and see if it finds new hardware or shows up fine in your hardware list. If not then it is probably pooched.
