Cyberhome DX162D DVD writer for computer will not write to DVDs

Computer sees it as a DVD writer, but seems to be installing the wrong drivers for it because application programs that burn to DVDs don't recongize any DVD burners being installed on the system. Burner didn't come with any driver files on a disc (recone just uses Windows generic drivers), but Windows keeps installing generic CD burner drivers, not DVD burner drivers. Tried uninstalling drivers and letting Windows reinstall drivers after rebooting systems, but still keeps intalling wrong drivers. Tried updating drivers, letting Windows search the web for newer drivers, but no luck. Even tried going to Cyberhome's website looking for updated drivers, but they're selling the company and don't have any information. Please help! Am trying to save a bunch of pictures on my computer to DVD and can't until I can fix the DVD burner.

What OS do you use?
windows 95 and 98 tend to install a dvdwriter wrong and if you have that i recommend you to upgrade

if not, is it an external or internal burner, externals can be seen as cd writers when not using usb 2.0

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner

Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

I want to download driver software for my hp dvd 740 writer...plz help me...

Hi Mukesh,

Here's an easy way to download and install / update your HP DVD writer drivers:

Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve the drivers for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here: or directly from this link: (copy/paste the link into your browser, if you can't click it).

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

Hope that helps,

My dvd writer not detecting dvds . ihave changed my dvd writer with a second hand writer but the problem is remain same

At your PC menu, left click Setting, Control Panel, and Add Hardware Wizard and get it open to find out if your DVD writer is installed and working properly. Otherwise, follow the instruction to get it installed. Thereafter, reinstall the software driver for the DVD writer. Otherwise, get your software driver download at the Internet, and install it in your PC. Just type at the Search engine blank( Download for software
driver Brand and Model of your DVDR,) and choose
the software driver applicable. Then, go back to your
PC menu, click open your download and have it

My dvd writer DRU-190A takes 50-60 minutes for each dvd writing.

Just right click on my computer, go to properties> hardware> device manager> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. there u will find several primary and secondary IDE Channels. Right click on first IDE channel and goto properties> Advanced settings, change transfer mode to "DMA if Available". Repeat it with all the channels. If problem still persists then uninstall the channel containing ur DVD Writer and restart your computer. It will detect new hardware as DVD Writer. Now if it is showing the transfer mode "DMA if Available" by default then your problem is solved.
