Dvd rom drive

I threw in a dvd rom drive... nexxtech 16x. I know I connected everything in correctly but the computer will not read it. I went to add new hardware and it showed, proceded to instal it, then at the end said installed but there might be problems it installed incorrectly. Computer doesnt read a disk when thrown in it and my computer shows i only have only a floppy drive.

Try to open control panel then click add hardware. If you have entered the dialogue box, answer whatever is asked according to what you're searching. Then click whatever hardware your PC would like to detect then click finshed. After the detection, close the wizard box then try to open your DVD ROM and try it.

16x dvd-R dISCS

Can you read from the CD-RW drive? If you can then the optics are most likely fine. Try reading from the disk you are trying to write to. It should show a lot of space available if you check it's properties. If not, then that disk has likely been closed and you can't write to it any more. If you can't see the drive on your computers HARDWARE viewer, then the drive either isn't connected (you have said it is), or power isn't getting to it. If you can read from a factory produced CDrom, then you should be good to go.

Pc died

Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
