Hi,

Sounds like a case of jumper settings. If the CD-RW was installed as secondary IDE to an existing hard drive which is the Master, pls set jumper to SL. They are located at the rear of the CD unit between the IDE connector and the audio out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Sorry, the "secondary IDE" should read as slave IDE.

    I can burn cd's but not dvd's


    Hello Rfd832,
    What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
    CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
    DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
    so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
    If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

    You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


    Hope that helps.. :)

    Thanks and Regards,
    Srinivas

    DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


    the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

    GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

    Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read


    Hi,
    do you have software/program that supports DVD.
    Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
    Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
    Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
    ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
    Hope this helps.
