Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error

Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

Thanks for your advice on an upgrade graphics card for my Philips LS1100 freeline desktop 3200 Mb amd PC, my conquest to convert this PC to a gamer PC has now got a HD5450 with Low profile...

Yes it has everything to do with the clean install. What you need to do is load the driver. Find the disk that came with the unit. If no disk came with it: go to the manufacturers website and download the driver for your model - save it - find it and run it or at least put it to where the dvd will find it. The EASY way is to run the program the driver comes in. If the driver is just a driver and nothing else - remove the dvd from your device manager list - then restart the pc and it will automatically reload the dvd and drivers.

the safe disk is just a protection model from the company that produce it to prevent copying and so ..but in rest it is just a normal disk ...if this is a video-movie disk...try to install a program and a codec capable to read it ..and try again ..I suggest the VLC and the FFDshow codec to be able to read dvd format ..
if it is a game ..probably it s made in a format that your dvd is not seeing it .

Philps DVD/RW DVD8801 will not let me burn cds

First thing to do is go to the manufacturers website or if it is an OEM drive
download the driver for it. Make sure you save it and not run it now what you want to do is follow these steps in uninstalling the old driver and installing the new one

Go to Start Button
Click control panel
System and maintenance
then in the left pane you should see an option for device manager go inside there expand the category for cd/dvd/rw drives
right-click on the drive and click uninstall
then you will want to install the freshly downloaded driver and then reboot

a few things you can get back to me on :

-what program do you use to try to burn?
-what OS are you running?

If these steps seem difficult let me know and i will give you a screenshot walk through. I need to know the OS for that . let me know if this helps
