CD burner 'not recognized'

I tried to transfer pictures from my hard drive to a CD. The first few tries were successful. Now, I am unable to do this or platy CDs because the computer does not recognize the CD burner. Could this be the eye? Or is there something I can do.

Please and thank you in advance.

Re: CD burner 'not recognized'

First of call check if the drive is detected in the system bios.If it is not detected there than try to reseat it.Incase it is detected than its the operating system that is not recogenising it,so we can make try these steps:
1.Go to Start>Run and type regedit.Than go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CURRENT CONTROL SET>CONTROL>CLASS>{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and remove the upper and lower filter.
2.Go to start and right click on my computer and than click on manage.On this creen go to the option which says Device manager and look for the option for the cd drive.Expand it and than right click on the option it gives you and uninstall it.After that close everything and restart the system.
3.Also similar way you can remove the primery and secondry channels in the device manager.
4.Incase it still does not work you might have to reinstall the windows.
Hope this helps

I have put 5 different dvd burners in my toshiba. it will not recognize any

After having no success with the THIRD burner, you should have deduced that its the computer, not the DVD device, that is causing the problem.

Try entering BIOS SETUP, to see if the BIOS recognizes the DVD device.
Check that it is "enabled", not "disabled".

I have a Que!M3 60GB external hard drive. All of a sudden it is making clicking noises and is not recognized by my computer. Help! This has all of my pictures saved on it!

I assume that your operating system is on another hard drive. If so, try powering down your PC, disconnecting the external drive from the computer's USB port, powering back on and then connecting the drive to a different USB port.

If your computer still does not see the drive, I'm afraid the drive has failed. You might try taking the drive to a PC technician who may have utility software which will enable him to recover your pictures.

A CD-R empty disk is not recognized by the CD drive for transfering data onto hard disk. Do I need to format ? how?

It should work by itself, if the drive can write the CD-R and it's not damaged.

Go to My Computer, right-click on the CD icon and check in Properties, under the "Recording" tab, that recording is allowed. Then under AutoPlay, check Operations and try selecting 'Record' (it shouldn't be necessary, but let's do that for luck).

Otherwise, you can always use a third-party utility - for Windows XP a very good one is CDburnerXP, freeware (I have two other CD-R programs which cost several $$$, but find myself using CDburnerXP since it's faster and way less bloated. Your mileage, as always, may vary).

Not recognize standard cd

Try a CD cleaner disk This is a special disk with a little brish embedded and some solution just follow the instructions. If that fails- then it is a component failure. which will mean a new drive - can you get it replaced under warranty out there?

CD burner

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
