Hi,
this isn,t a big task.
1:- cable 40 strand IDE Ribbon Cable to DVD Rom. If there is a secondary device such as hard-drive. view it,s jumper ( plastic Block) setting will be Master Or Slave. Setup your DVD To Opposite of Hard-Drive ( If applicable )
2:- 4 pin Molex plug power cable, Red-Blk-Blk-Yellow. Only goes in 1 way, usually yellow facing outside edge of case.
3:- turn on computer, drive should be detected, install device drivers via CD if requested by the system.

Im having trouble with my drives it wont read the cd or burn the cd or dvd


Hello there,

If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe.

You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.

Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

The screen says: "Intel UNDI , PXE-2.1 (buld 082) For Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.06 (080225) CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 03 0D A0 C7 C7 GUID:...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* internal disk-drive
* internal CD/DVD drive
* internal 3.5" drive
* external USB device (memory stick, external CD drive, et cetera)
* via your network-adapter -- trying to connect to a "boot-server"

So, restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Be sure that the disk-drive *IS* listed.
If you want, exclude the "network" boot-device,
since the error-messages that you are seeing are indicating that *NO* boot-server exists on your network.

What the messages *COULD* imply is that there is no media in the CD/DVD drive,
no media in the 3.5" drive, nothing "bootable" connected via a USB port,
*AND* that your computer *TRIED* but *FAILED* to boot from your disk-drive.

That is, your disk-drive either is electrically disconnected (no power reaching it)
or electronically disconnected (the "data" cable is not attached)
or that the disk-drive itself is "dead".

Take your computer to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.
You may have to replace the "dead" disk-drive with a brand-new one.

I have this cd-r by memorex that already has downloaded songs but i want to erase them and put new ones ...please explain how to do this...


You cant.

A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a variation of the Compact Disc invented by Philips and Sony. CD-R is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium, though the whole disk does not have to be entirely written in the same session.
CD-R retains a high level of compatibility with standard CD readers, unlike CD-RW - which can be re-written, but is not capable of playing on many readers, and also uses more expensive media..

If you want to be able to use the disc many times, you need to buy CD-RW discs

    How do I Install my LG GCC-4320B


    ok take this step to connect the cd 0r dvd drive

    To install an external DVD drive:
    1. When purchasing a new drive be sure to understand the many formats available: DVD, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW are a few for example. More recent technologies include DVD-DL, HD DVD and Blu-Ray Disc. A decent DVD drive should be able to read and write both "+" and "-" technologies and also support recordable (R) and re-writable (RW) technology. Essentially look for a DVD+/-RW drive if you plan on recording DVD's, or just a plain DVD drive for reading DVD's (movies, games, etc). There are a variety of speeds from 2x-16x for a wide spectrum of users and needs; higher speeds will record faster.
    2. If you have a USB connection on your computer you can use an external drive. The advantage to an exterior drive is that you can use it on other computers as well.
    3. To install an external DVD, just follow the instructions provided with the drive.
    To install an internal DVD drive:
    1. Look for a DVD with the letters RW on the box. This is so you can read disks and record them as well. Make sure the speed rating is 16X and that the DVD is dual layer so that it takes care of the latest technology.
    2. Read the instructions that come with the DVD. It may require you to load the provided CD software before installing the DVD player. Leave the disk in your CD ROM player for the rest of the procedure.
    3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer (goes to the wall socket of your house.)
    4. Open the case of the computer.
    5. Locate the hard disk or CD drive. Most have two connections and can only be snapped in place one way. One connection is for data and one for power.
    6. Check to see if your computer mounts the DVD/CD ROM drives from the inside or if they are pushed through the front panel (you may have to remove the plastic panel on some models.)
    7. Carefully remove the plastic “knock-off?? cover on the outside of your computer. Make sure you do this only when you are ready to install the DVD drive.
    8. Slide the DVD drive into an empty compartment or bay. If it’s an older computer you can secure it with screws that come with the DVD drive. Many newer computers have spring clips to secure the drive in place.
    9. Connect the DVD drive to the data cable. The data cable is wide like a ribbon and is also called a ribbon cable and has a red stripe on one side. There are two or three connectors on the data cable. One is connected to the circuit board, one is connected to your CD drive or hard disk and one in the middle (optional third connector) is usually not connected to anything. Use the middle connector for the DVD drive. If your data cable only has two connectors replace it with the one that is generally included with the new drive.
    10. Hook the DVD to the power connector. This is a normal round looking cable. There are usually several power connectors in the computer.
    11. If you don’t have an available power connector, then you can buy a “Y?? connector to hook up to the existing power cable. Unhook the power connector and hook it to one side of the “Y?? and hook the DVD to the other side of the “Y??.
    12. Re-assemble the cover and plug the computer back in.
    13. When you run Windows up it should look for the drivers for the new DVD player and automatically locate and load them from the CD ROM that you left in the CD player from the first step.

    thanks

    I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.
