How to do clean install of Windows 8.1 when normal clean install does not work. Putting disk in and doing usual F8 command does not work. The computer is in a loop I can't get out of.

Make sure you are putting the disc in a DVDRom and check the bios to make sure the system is set to boot from the DVD. You can also hit the F10 key during start up which on most computers brings up a boot menu. Make sure you select the drive that has the Windows DVD disc.

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?

This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...

On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Power producer cannot find dvd writer Help!!

1st Check to see if you have power (hit the eject button on the DVD writer). If not then you have a physical problem with the drive. If external DVD then reseat the power connections from the wall and to the drive (also reseat the USB cable from both ends). If internal drive then you would have to make sure the power is plugged in well (i doubt this problem as it almost never happens on an internal drive). If you still have no power for an eject, then you will have to get a replacement drive.

If it does eject, then check the Device Manager (right click "My Computer", select properties, Select the Hardware Tab, Click the "Device Manager" button) to see if your drive shows up. There should be a plus sign or minus sign (+)(-) in front of "DVD/CD-ROM drives". Click the plus sign if you have one, otherwise you should see your DVD writer here. If there is a "red X" on the drive, right-click it and then select "enable". Then your DVD should be active.

Otherwise if you have power and it is already in the device manager, then it is a problem with your Power Producer program and you will need to reinstall it or use another program (which you can find here Hope this helps, Best Regards, -md

Can't read dvd says a blank dvd

have you tried reinstalling the dvd drivers?
I would try that and see if it works.
also make sure you set to the proper region for your dvd's
you can only change the region a couple times so go easy.

Dvd rom region settings

if you are using xp: control panel, classic view (if not already in it), system, hardware, device manager. expand dvd/cdrom drives, double click the drive you want to reset the region on, select "dvd region" header, highlight the region you want, and click ok.

hope this helps,

DVD burning problem

if you have tried different dvd-r and dvd-rw discs, unfortunately it's a sign that your writer is failing to read the discs correctly, this normally happens when the writer is about to give up, although it may still write and read cd's but not dvd's
