Question about Dell Optiplex GX270SFF (5U825) Burner
I have a Delll Dimension 5510 running XP. I have internal Philip DVD buner. The problem is the burner will not create a DVD. Dell support said the only fix was to reload the OS. Some of my MCSE friends say that this is wrong. Any thoughts or suggestions.
Actually If all your case are the same like mine than you can't use your drive because the windows can't load the driver for it ...
You can see this in Device Manager... Right Click on My Computer --> Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager...
I have a little yellow circle with an exclamation in it next to the drive showing that there is no device driver loaded for the drive...
If I Uninstall it and select Scan for new hardware icon then I get the same situation back...
So no idea what to do...!
Interesting! If I attempt to boot from a CD or DVD then it is OK!!!!!!!!!!!!
So it seems like my drive does not have any phisical damage...
It seems to be the windows....
So on my computer does not make any sense to install an other DVD writing software because the drive is not even in the My computer......
I hope someone else can figure something out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd first try another burning programming to see if it works. if not I'd try the drive on a different pc to ensure its not the drive. if the drive works on another pc then i will reload the os and dell recommended if it doesnt works i'd returen if for warrenty if it has any or i'd replace the drive myself :)
Let me know what happens :)

After some digging, I found a driver that may be a possible solution for your Phillips DVD8801 problems. http://www.bioticaindia.com/download.php?file=dvd8801 is the download link I've found. I did not scan this download for viruses or malware, nor have downloaded this driver. I suggest scanning it before running it. If this does not work, reinstalling the OS if possible without a cd/dvd drive and updating the drivers if possible with your version of windows, linux, or other OS could work. If neither of these methods work, see about getting a refund for your DVD drive and buy yourself one off of TigerDirect.com or Newegg.com.
