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.

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

My internal DVD/CD-RW drive is not working. It


If it's the spindle or a faulty loading mechanism, there's not much that can be done... But perhaps it's just dirty optics (I'd call dirty optics retrain noise a "whirr", not a "rattle", but that's a taste - and what have you to lose?).

So, try loading a disk cleaning CD and let it rattle for a couple of minutes, then take it out and try again.

Make sure that your DVD drive detected and on the list in Device Manager as LG GH22NP20. If it already on the list, but still have the same problem, ask to the store where you bought that device for changing with the other one.

Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

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.

Please,when i put in a dvd-rw cd,my dvd-rom doesn't recognise it.Please help.


what model? did you check device manager ? go to computer management -> storage-> see if your disk is listed there. If you can see you drive , try to update firmware. If that doesn't work .. scan your computer (ccleaner, sypboot ......- but i am thinking this could not be the problem, but try) if that doesn't work, you have to buy a new one, this was the problem for me with samsung disk dvd rw... what burner do you have ? if nero try to instal incd or something called like that , this is support for rewritable dvd (cd's). My dvd also didn't work because i didn't instal incd with nero, but that was nero 6.0.. try all of this and let me know how did you pass. I can help you with log me in if you wan't. cheers
