My DVD Writer/CD Writer Combo got hung and I pulled out the tray

My DVD Writer/CD Writer Combo got hung on my pant leg when trying to move from my desk. Is it possible to replace the slide tray?

    The tray itself didn't break but it detached from the slot that holds it. The make and model of my desktop is Compaq Presario SR1620NX. The tray broken contains a DVD Writer/CD Writer Combo. Do you know of a specific site I could look to get an idea of the price for an replacement? Thanks for helping me I am a novice at trying to fix things pertaining to my computer.

    Is the slide tray broken? It may be fixable but you're probably as well buying a new one, they're so cheap these days. ebuyer are probs the cheapest, but most online shops will be less than £20 GBP. What it the make/model of your desktop? The only thinkg you need to identify is whether the connection is IDE (wide ribbon) or SATA (small plastic socket with fairly thin wire). Do this by removing the side panel for your PC and looking at the back of the DVDRW drive. Installing a new drive is a fairly easy job, it's very hard to damage anything while doing so. You could even look at upgrading the drive as well if you want.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?


look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?


According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

The drive is malfunctioning -- when it cannot read the CD-disk, it opens the tray. For less than $40, you can buy a brand-new CD/DVD-writer, and responsibly recycle the malfunctioning device.

Dell E510 Missing CD & DVD Drives...nothing is working yet...


you can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :

Door


Hi abdu

The problem is that at some stage you or someone else forced the cd open or closed, but not to worry, it's not broken. What happened is that the gear that pulls the tray in, mite have slipped a tooth or two. You'll have to open it up. Take the top cover off. It has four small screws holding it. When you take the cover off, the gear system should reveal itself. Now the gear that pulls the cd tray in and out must me ajusted. Before you open the dvd writer, make sure it is in it's utmost closed position. Very Important!. There should be a screw in the centre of this gear. Carefully unscrew completely. Now it depends on which direction the gear turns when it close the tray. Seeing that it doesn close completely, the gear turns anti clockwise to close. Lift the gear in a up sliding position and turn it one teeth clockwise, press the gear back, fasten the screw and test. If it still needs more adjustment, repeat the process with another teeth clockwise. Note if it worsen that it doesn't close, then you need to reverse the process and move the gear anticlockwise, but make sure to mark the teeth that it was originally on when you opened it.

Hope this helps
Cheers
