Re: nero cr-rw burner install

Is your hard drive the master on the primary cable? You shouldn't need a digital audio cable unless you want digital audio. Are you using Nero software witht he drive? may have to re-install the software, or better, uninstall it, clear the registry with CCleaner (free download on the web) and then try a fresh install.

How do i format a disc?

You can only format re-writable disks, and it is usually done with the software that is used for burning the disk. Programs like Nero Burning Rom allow you to completely wipe a disk.

I installed a LiteOn SOHR-5239v cd-rw drive. It doesn't show up on my computer and i looked on the website and couldn't find the driver.

Ok thats probably your problem. J
You will have to remove the DVD drive once it is removed look at the back it will look like this,
I have indicated where the jumpers are located. The jumpers tell the computer how to read the drive (every IDE drive hard drive, cd/dvd rom, floppy drive has them) the options are Master (meaning it is the main drive), Slave (secondary drive), and Cable Select (the cable decides how the drive will be read).
There are two ways to connect the drive to the motherboard one is to split the IDE Cable with the hard drive the other is the drive has its own IDE Cable and plugs in next to the hard drive.
If you are sharing the cable with the hard drive configure the jumper as Cable Select,
If your drive connects with its own cable select Master.
To do this pull out the jumper and insert it in the location you want.

External cd-rw with no instructions may be missing a cord?

You need the USB cable to use it. Go to a computer store, show them the drive and tell them you need the cable

Make it sure that the connection is isntalled/Plug correctly then also try to see the jumper and change it to slave if you are using 1 IDE cable connector for your hard disk and your CD/DVD ROM. No need to installed drivers for this device folow the steps i write then after you done all the steps i have written then restart your computer

My lite-on combo sohc 5235 is not recognized as a dvd/cd writer but only cd after having my computer reformatted... i lost the installer... what to do please?

XP should recognize it any way.
Nero capabilities depends on clean install/version of itself.

XP SP3 runs fine with Nero 7 again without that mindexerror popup

Propably you installed SP3 and had Norton also there being the virus?

Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read

do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

LEAVE YOU hard drive on primary master port on your main board set as master or single drive ( IF YOU HAVE A STATA HARD DRIVE THEN DONT WORRY ABOUT THAT PART)

use the jumber in the back of the drive to set them the propper setting is labeled on the drive it self

Connect them to the secondary port on your motherboard
so you should have

HARD DRIVE - MASTER OR SINGLE *jumper settiing* connected to the primary port on your main board

DRIVE 1 = MASTER *jumper settiing*
DRIVE 2 = SLAVE *jumpersetting*
connected to the secondary port on your mother board

i assumed you had a IDE hard drive
