They're cheap now so you could get a new one, might even be faster. I would try to borrow one to make the problem isn't with your motherboard first, just to be safe.

If you know how to open your laptop, you can try seeing if the cable to the CDROM is connected properly. On startup, does your computer recognize the drive? If it's not the cable, you need a new cdrom drive.

My cd rom wil not work it just quit working for no reason it will not play any cds or let me burn anything

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

If the same problem is still occurring, get the reliable Dell support at http:/www./

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.

I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit

Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.

Hi, it appears that CDW/DVDRAM is only detected in BIOS but in normal windows. This is a known issue from Microsoft eventhough you are using Windows Xp or Vista the CDW/DVDROM is not detected and does not appear in My computer icon. This can be easily fixed by a registry tweaks.

Please click on this link and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Windows xp compatible?

It's a bog standard CDROM drive, there's nothing about it that's not XP compatible. Check and make sure the connectors are seated properly. Check the firmware, there is an update, try This drive is reported to have CD-RW issues, but everything else should be fine (I think the firmware fixes that) If your still having problems, its' probably a bad drive.
