Hi blgard,

please ensure u have wired up this internal combo drive properly,
- that IDE cables and power cable is connected, that the jumper setting
is properly(if using this as a single drive without any harddrive connected to the same IDE cable jumper must be set to single!)
- that in BIOS both ODE channels are activated and drive detection is set to auto

when done this properly, the drives will be listed when booting up(press pause button, right before windows is loading, to see list)

if not, use the other channel(echange IDE plugs on the mainboard), retry
and see.

when booting the green lamp of the drive should light up shortly!

then goto windows/setting/hardware, run hardware detection/device manager and wait for the new device to show up. Make sure you have the driver CD ready for windows will ask for it, (if you don't have another cd-drive ready, copy content of cd onto usb-stick/thumbdrive instead )
le win search for the drivers on the cd/usb-device,
proceed installing, finish and reboot.

if now windows can't find the drive (see win explorer)
but it is listed when booting up, get the latest drivers from the manufacturer's homepage and reinstall drivers!

I hope this works for You!

I have a Tdk burner worked fine until my husband had his buddy install some other burning software now my burner doesn't read there's a cd in it and it keeps opening up...still looking for original tdk...


Installing different burning software should not really affect reading capabilities of the burner. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to have two burning software packages on the same computer.

You can try uninstalling the new software that was installed on your computer, the reboot the system and check if that worked. If Windows does not open the disc automatically, you can go to My Computer and access the disc by double clicking on the TDK drive.

If you continue to have the same problems, please make sure the DVD burner is connected properly to the computer.

There are two formats on DVD. DVD+R and DVD-R, (Not including RW and RAM) your machine may well only do one of them at this time. If you have the wrong format, it wont work.

Tdk dvd rw aid+420n


this is the 420N, not the 440N?  
is this an internal or external burner?

what operating system are you using?  on Windows XP, there's a good chance that you can just use the default drivers for that...

the best set of drivers i can find is here:

but most of those are firmware updates, or for slightly different models.

My SONY DRU-810A DVD Writer doesn't work with TDK DVD+RW Disc


some dvd brands dont work with all dvd writers, so your option is to try another make, if that works ok then it's not a writer fault it is just that the media make is not compatable. if you start to see problems with all makes of disc then the writer laser is faulty and a replacement drive neccasary.
