Question about Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 8600 Cd RW/DVD has stopped working

I have a dell Inspiron 8600 and the Cd RW/DVD drive recently stopped working. When I put a CD or DVD in it makes some noises for about 15 seconds and then stops. When I go to My Computer it does not show that I there is a disk in the drive. Is there anything I can do, or is it time to invest in a new drive?
Also is it possible to replace the CD RW/ DVD drive with a drive that will burn both CDs and DVDs?

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd


Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

I have Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop. I want ot replace the CD-RW/DVD with a CD burner. What should I be looking for or is it better to go with an external DVD burner?


Well a CD-RW/DVD ROM is a CD burner so you really dont need to replace it. Unless you meant replace it with a DVD burner then...

The best thing you can do is go to the Dell website and search your notebook/model number and look for the upgrade drive and buy it from them. If its to expensive search ebay or the web with the info you found on the Dell website (combo drive name + model number) and find one for a cheaper price.
