Question about Magic (IDVD16DDBE) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

Open Question

Just locks up?

I have a magicspin IDVD16DDBE model number dvdrw 1016ui that will lock up my Dell inspiron 8200 laptop. I am running XP with all the latest updates but as soon as I turn the unit on it locks up the laptop. As soon as i turn the dvd off the laptop cones right back, just like nothing happened. I tried to get onto the live update but again, it will lock up if the dvd unit is on and as you know you need to have the unit on to look for updates.

Please help!

Find out the voltage and amp ratings and you could pick one up somewhere like maplins or any other electrical department store. Also check the connecter and make sure you get one that fits.

Any CD/DVD-writer drive will work -- just remove the face-plate and mounting-brackets from the "dead" drive, and connect those parts to the "new" drive.

I have Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop. I want ot replace the CD-RW/DVD with a CD burner. What should I be looking for or is it better to go with an external DVD burner?

Well a CD-RW/DVD ROM is a CD burner so you really dont need to replace it. Unless you meant replace it with a DVD burner then...

The best thing you can do is go to the Dell website and search your notebook/model number and look for the upgrade drive and buy it from them. If its to expensive search ebay or the web with the info you found on the Dell website (combo drive name + model number) and find one for a cheaper price.

PD CD-RW 24x1040 external usb2 firmware

This device is meant only for CDs. However, the drive is an internal CDRW with IDE interface. You can substitute some DVDRW drives, but some DVD drives are picky about voltage and amperage. This enclosure is on the weak side for most DVDRW drives. You'll want to find a DVDRW that can work on as low as 8VDC on the 12VDC line. And the drive can't draw any more than .75A on the 12VDC line either. If the drive requires higher amounts, yor system may only recognize the drive as being connected to your system, but it'll never have the power to read the disc, and just kick it out after spinning the disc around for a short time.

I would suggest checking the cabling, as it is possible that the IDE cable is not connected correctly if this is a new install I would check your master / slave settings (as you cannot have 2 masters or 2 slaves on the same IDE chain) regards
