Hi There,

Windows XP doesn't support burning DVDs, only CDs. You need to install an application that will burn DVDs. There are several;

There should be a CD or DVD with all appropriate software you need to install the drive. Most motherboards will accept the drive. The SATA drive does not need any driver, because it is not talking with the operation system direct. It is communicating on BIOS level. The software you need, should be on a CD or DVD that came with the recorder. Or you could install generic software to burn disks. like NERO.

Problem with the Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop Computer DVD Drive Locked to Regon 1 & i live in Regon 4


To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Acer 5520g laptop dvd drive not regonized


If its not in BIOS then sounds like a hardware problem. usually only 2 cables connects to the cdrom, power & ide OR sata. usually these two wouldnt be disconnected so i suspect bad drive.

Hi,
This would be Known As A conflict, ( With I.Player )
Why Don,t you try installing Another CD Burning Program. Neros Not The Only One.
Try Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator, Or Look On The Internet For Burner Software For Download.

Phillips dvd rw 16x double capacity series


What did you uninstall if you meant the drivers then thats all you do. Rollback to the last driver. You say media burners are having a problem reading your Phillips dvd rw. Does Windows read it does windows see the drive? if it does the problem lies with the media burners though I cant quite fathom what you mean "Media Burners" are talking about Media Player 11 Nero 7 and so on ifn so this is a software problem not a hardware. Normally software is remedied like a product with drivers to run it. Hardware ahs firmware to make the hardware go.
