Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

Presario R3000 quit recognizing the DVD/Writer

The laptap is about 4 years old. Just out of the blue, it no longer sees the DVD drive. It doesn't recognize it in setup either. The HP site has a link to this problem, but is unavailable.

    I think the fact the drive is not recognized in setup (aka the BIOS) is the key. Whether Windows is even installed or not, the drive should be recognized in the BIOS.


    1. Does the drive eject when you press the eject button?

    2. Is the drive easily removable or is it screwed in?

I removed the drive and reinstalled it and solved the problem. Thank you for your fast response. Obviously HP doesn't out us little people.

Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

Burning DVD


Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.

Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.

My LH20A1p186c Lite on dvd writer will not do anything. A simple swap into my comp with 3 cables and the comp. does not recognize the new hardware. In fact both dvd and old cd player appear tp be one...


Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.
