Replacing Dell Dimension 4600 Internal DVD Drive

I ordered a new internal DVD writer from Dell to replace the one that went out on my Dimension 4600 and they told me to just unlook and re-hook up the new one. I did that and now the computer will not recognize it and it won't power. I have doublechecked to make sure all connections are secure. It is the top dvd player in the tower.

Thanks for any help you can with installing this. Have a great day!

    You are a genius. Thank you so much. This worked and all I did was follow your instructions. If you are having trouble with your dimension recognizing your dvd drive, follow the instructions that Maanita gives above. It works............ Maanita, once again, thank you so much.

Where do I get a dvd drive for the Dell dimension 2300


The dell dimension takes a standard DVD drive, CDRW or DVD writer. Simply go to your local superstore and buy one thats on sale. Buy one that goes internal not external. For example a place like Best Buy has several.

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

Internal USB connector


You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.

Bought DVD-Rs, 'Verbatim', 16x for Dell Dimension 4600, driver Samsung CDRW/DVD SM-352F Computer does not recognise the dvd Wrong purchase?


This drive is a CD writer only. Although it will read DVD's it will not write to them.

You will need to replace the drive with a DVD-RW drive.


Hope this helps.

External DVD Drives


Hi,
Sorry to dissappoint you , but this not a possiblity.What you can to instead is copy the content of the DVD into a USB flash drive , and plugin the flash drive to your 4600c and install it from there.
A normal DVD reader writer drive , retails for not more that 65$ , so you can buy one two, more over local computer stores also keep refurbished drives, that you can get a good deal on.

Thanks
Mandeep
