Hello there,
First things first:
1) Did you enable on BIOS all USB ports?
2) Install all USB drivers?
3) then use another port USB 2.0
3) it is suppose to recognize it now.

My PC is an IDE. the dvd/cd burner went bad. I baught this new LG burner today with an IDE to SATA adapter with the needed cables. I installed it all and it wont even come on, not working. So I am guessing...


It is not the dvd driver problem but more likely to have the adapter issue. The generic Microsoft cd/dvd dirver should be fine, I never have to install and driver for the replacement DVD/CD drive on any of my repair works.
Did you try this setup with another PC?

Should not be a problem but here is a thought. Have you change the jumper on the IDE drive to secondary? Failing that, can you contact the IDE drive company for help?

Will an IDE DVD Burner work on my Acer Aspire E380 desktop. The hard drive is a SATA but the burner looks like an IDE and has belt cables. I need to replace my DVD burner and not sure what type of burner...


Yes, all you need is a IDE (Pata) to IDE (Sata) converter.

If you're replacing it, just make sure you get one with the correct interface, judging by what you sat SATA.

Just bought a new DVD burner, its a LG Super Multi DVD ReWriter 22x (Gh22LS40) I also had to buy a sata to IDE converter for my motherboard that has only IDE connectors on it. I can not get Windows 7 to...


ok here's what you need to do.....


first check your dvd burner if its is detected properly on your cmos. If it is located properly try to re install windows 7 again i've encountered this problem before and i just reinstalled windows 7 and it worked like charm.

If the dvd burner is not detected on cmos try to check the jumper settings for both hard disk and dvd burner one orf the other should not be on the same setting ex. if your disk drive is on master you should set the dvd on slave and vice versa. then redo the first step. hope this helps

A FRIEND REMOVED A DRIVE FROM MY OLD COMPUTER. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW I CAN GET THE PICTURES FROM THIS DRIVE WITHOUT INSTALLING IT INTO MY NEW COMPUTER. THERE MUST BE A WAY. PLEASE HELP!


You need a USB converter for this purpose. It helps to connect standard IDE harddisk to your computer through USB port. You need to connect your hard disk to that converter and it will work just like other mass storages (USB sticks,data travellers).

I want to install a 2nd dvd burner. But I don't know how to hook it up. My new pc does not have the ribbons like my old one does.


If your 2nd DVD burner is on IDE interface, you may need to get an IDE to SATA cable. Please refer to the picture below as to how it looks like:

I'm trying to install a DVD burner into my Dell GX520 (mini tower) and can't work it out ... can anyone help?


If you install the DVD drive on the same IDE cable as the hard drive using the second connector, then the jumper on the DVD burner has to be set to SLAVE.
If you elect to install the DVD burner on the cable which is connected to the second IDE controller (this is the preferred way), then the jumper setting can be set to either MASTER or SLAVE provided there are no other devices on this cable.
When the computer boots up go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the DVD burner, if not then the jumper settings on the DVD burner is not correct.

Installed a new dvd burner for Hp computer. Running Windows XP. Installed Nero 8 Software. Door doesn't always open when button is pushed or after burning a dvd. Computer also has another cd/dvd drive....


it has to do with a new hardware installation process....check IDE cable that they are correctly connected and try to check system setup so that the CMOS identifies both, primary & secondary devices....if not, u need to install a driver for the newly installed one....

Acts like a Player/CD burner


I have an IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (52x32x16) that has burned well over 300 cd/dvd' sense 2004 when I bought it. In 2006 or 7, an update was given to it via memorex sight - I was told to keep a copy of the dn ld, for it can't be undone and became "IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (523216)AJ___NWK____\5&265FB54&0&000" MODEL - I got it on sale from Fry's Elec. - It seems that it was indeed a 1 way ticket - and it is time to retire the old work horse anyway - Quite happy with your products and getting me another. PS - I don't think the upgrade did any justus
