Re: my pc doesn't recongnize the cd-rw

Is it showing in the bios? Check that the cable is attatched properly and that the jumper is in right position. Is it a new one or old one thats just stopped workin?

Dell 4600 dimension cd-rw@cd-rom drivers

There is no need of any driver or software. First check your BIOS(i.e. keep jabbing the DEL key when you start ur PC, able background with letters in white will come up. Go to The Chipset/IDE Drive option where it shows which Hard Disk is and see if it recogonize you CD ROM/RW) Otherwise when this screen appears(BIOS) simply chose default settings(F%) or Fail-Safe and save & exit(F10). Continue boot-up Then open my Computer to see if it shows your CD ROM/RW, if not open the side panel of your CPU and locate the ROM/RW Bay. At its rear end are two sets of cable 4 for power & a 20/40 pin where a whitish flat cable(strip) is connected. Gently press all such that there are no loose connections. Reboot and now u should have solved ur problem....sodeep

CD ROM Won't work

First you want to make sure the CD you are using is good. Try a different CD-ROM, a known good one. If a different CD-ROM is readable then the problem is with your CD media and not the CD-ROM Drive. If another known good CD does not work then the problem is with the drive.

To fix this you must purchase a new CD-ROM drive and install it. has great deals. If you only want to read CDs and are not interested in burning then you can get a name brand CD-ROM drive for around $15.00, but if you need to burn as well the CD+-RW will run you about $30.00.

If you are using Windows XP then it is pretty simple to install the new CD-ROM drive.
