How can I get my HP to recognize my PNY drive?

Since you have tried it in another pc to verify that the usb is OK, then i also will assume you also try all the ports in the pc refusing to see the PNY drive. Have you started the pc in safe mode? same results? have you try any usb drive?
if no ubs are recognized no matter what then there is a corruption in the OS or virus infection.
By the way have you used the PNY drive before in that PC, If you did then there is a corruption in the registry for that usb.

HELLO, my cd/dvd drive on my latop(DELL INSPIRON 6400) wont read disks, i have checked the information on it by clicking properties and its ays it 'working correctly' but it obviously isnt, i would REALLY...

As you have cleaned the lens, there is not a lot else you can do. You have checked it as far as you can apart from, put a system disk in the drive and boot the computer. If it tries to boot from the disk then the DVD drive is OK and you have a driver issue.
Hope this helps

Inspirion B130 DVDRW drive

On the bottom of the notebook under the DVD drive push the latch to eject the DVD module. Once the module is ejected gently re-insert the module using both thumbs until you hear a click. Your DVD should now be recognized by the computer.

2nd Hard drive not recognized

If your using IDE hard drives i would try to put them both on the same cable on the primary IDE controller. Then set you main hard drives jumpers and the second hard drive to cable select not slave. Try to boot if the boot fails your goiong to need a Windows 98 boot floppy with FDISK. You need to start up the 98 boot disk with out CD support then when it reaches a command prompt start fdisk. ONce fdisk is up format and partition the second drive. Now it should work. :) Check that the harddrive is detected in the BIOS, it may have become disconnected, it should also be the master drive on the primary IDE. If the drive is not detected in BIOS there is little chance of it working

Thank you....

Hard drive upgrade

It has to have SATA Hard Drive Connector DFHS22FR685, if you have this then I would try to format the hard drive to what your operating system is using, either NFTS or FAT32. The drive may not be properly formated for your system.

Hard drive

ok your hard drive isnt recognized, it may not be connected. Try locating the hard drive. Sometimes it is accessible from a bay on the side or bottem, other times it is located under the keyboard, check that it is securely plugged in.
