Dvd drive WILL NOT read burnt dvd's or CD's

The problem occurs mostly when your drive is dying. I had the same problem with my laptop writer recently after which it completely stopped writing discs. Contact your support. Sometimes they would ask you to remove the upper and lower filters of an entry in the registry which would sometimes resolve the problem.

Solid green light

Turn off the computer. There is a small hole underneath the drawer and above the eject button. Push hard into this hole with a long pin, or the blunt end of a long needle, and the drawer should pop open.

How do I install a DVD drive as well as my CD-RW?

mst...First, get your manual out. the drive must be set to be a secondary device unless it is not. You say you have only one IDE...did you remove the CDR? If you have a second IDE or other board connector, then this drive is primary on that. Now, did you install the drivers for the unit? You can use your CDR to do that or get them from the website of the manufacturer. Are there any bent pins on either the motherboard or the back of your drive? Somewhere in there is an answer.

If you have only one drive connector set, you can get a board which will allow you to setup additional drives. Ask your dealer.
