Normaly the lens has such low life that we think the drives are dead. try to clean it with a good quality CD LENS CLEANING KIT. If there is nothing new, means that the problem was cause by dust on previous cd's, even me I never care about loosing time cleaning a cd when want to see or play it, then this is what can happens to all of us.

The drivers are to the drive be knowed and easily acessed by the Operating System.

I downloaded all my pictures on to a cd, loaded the cd in my asus notebook and nothing! how in the world do i put my pictures on the notebook from a cd?


Hello there.

Can that CD you burned be read on a different computer aside from where you burned it? Blank CD's should be "finalized" after burning it to be able to view it on different CD-ROMS. CD-roms which are not CD-writers cannot read "unfinalized" burned CDs.

To finalize it, insert back the same CD in your CD-writer and look for the option to finalize it.

If it is finalized and still can't be read by your notebook, try another brand of blank CDs.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I recently bought a used TEAC CDWE552-GB CD Burner for my old computer. I received the power cord and cable to power it up but not the cables to attach it to my computer ( HP Pavilion 4550Z ). The ports on...


Unfortunately, I don't think you can use this CD writer on the HP Pavilion 4550Z directly. The CDWE552-G is an external USB device. The HP Pavilion 4550Z doesn't have any USB ports.

There are two options that I think you could consider. 1) Get a USB card to insert into the micro-tower. It's currently easier to find PCI USB 2.0 cards, see https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100168119%20600022008 for some examples. Before purchasing, check to make sure the card is compatible with the OS on the HP Pavilion 4550Z. It started with Windows 98. You will have to remove the Fax/modem to use that slot. (An ISA card might work but I haven't seen an ISA bus USB card in years.)

2) Take the CD writer out of the external case. The CDWE552 should use an IDE cable; just swap this CD writer for the one in the micro-tower. The HP Pavilion 4550Z should have the appropriate cables inside the tower. The original CD reader specifications indicate it was an IDE device.

I hope this helps.

I have an asus crw-5232A3 model cdrw drive. Im running winxp. The orange light on the cd drive stays on when a disc is inserted. No discs will read or write but windows says the device is working properly...


They do wear out and break, sounds like an older model. A new DVD/CD burner can be bought for about £15.
You could try a different ide cable from the motherboard, and that the cables are connected properly.
Give that a try before you look for a new one

Does not recognize disk


Either:
* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.

Install asus crw 5224a in ubuntu


I think that you have an internal unit not an external one like pictured.

Just hook it up like normal and try booting your system with an Ubuntu Live Cd in your drive. It should just work.

Ok... maybe you'll have to explore your BIOS to find how to let the system boot from a CD, but that's usually a bit of quick trial and error.

Good luck.

My LG GH-22LP20 Super Multi DVD Rewriter cannot read anymore DVDs. It can only read CDs. How do I solve this? Help!


It's "dying" -- replace it. If it is an "external" casing, with an "internal" DVD-writer inside, you could open the casing, remove the "dead" drive, buy a new drive, and install it into the case.

LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted


What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.

Sounds like the laser is burnt out. I would replace the drive.
