I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...

On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Can't read dvd says a blank dvd

have you tried reinstalling the dvd drivers?
I would try that and see if it works.
also make sure you set to the proper region for your dvd's
you can only change the region a couple times so go easy.

Tried to fit sata pioneer 216 dvd writer [it only had dvd rom fitted] it wont reconise it do I need to download drivers?. I put an old multi pin dvr in and it works fine. any ideas thanks

Go to your burning program's web site (roxio-nero-sony) and find updated drivers for your burning program. Your computer, burner and driver must all talk to one another.
Now you may also have to go to Pioneer and download any new drivers if there is a change between XP and Vista...
Just because your 216 dvd is new to may have been on the shelf for a time.
Hope this does the trick for you, please leave rating, thank you kindly

I cannot copy pics or text to dvd

Assuming you have a DVD writer installed and functioning in your computer, check the format of your dvds. If you have a writer that uses dvd-rw it may not recognize dvd+r discs. Your label on the dvd package should have the disc format and your documentation for the writer should say what formats will work in the writer.

1) Do not pay attention to speed burning, in my opinion the slower the better.

2) the burner may be dusty, buy a dry dvd lens cleaner and use it.

3) try other media like Verbatiom or Teac and compare results.

4) the lifespan of any burner (depends on use) is about 18 months (my nec 7170-AD stopped working after 10 months), you may have exeded the life span of your burner, replace with new one.
