Well,you already have a DVD burner in your machine, and A DVD ROM refers to memory.. you just need to download the upgrades available at Compaq's website. find out which Cd/DVD burner you have by downloading a marvelous freeware program called Belafrc Advisor, which will list all hardware and sofware on your
computer, compete with versions and access codes. then go to
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=320163&lang=en
which lists all upgrades available for your model. DVD burners stopworking correctly when your non-microsoft burner program becomes corrupt, so be sure to upgrade that. If you have any problems, ask support.

    Sorry, I was comletely wrong. A DVD-ROM is a read only DVD, and cant burn anything. You need to find out DVD burner will fit in the space once you remove it. I think you will need to get a manual on your to explain how to remove it. See if this website has the manual. otherwise, go to Compaq to find it. You can find out what DVD burner will fit by finding out at Compaq whether they sell the 2500 dg229a with a DVD burner. Then get the info on that burner, and you can shop online to see if there is a good deal on it, rather than buying it from Compaq. Good luck

I have a HP CompaQ CQ60 laptop... My technician told me that the DVD rom is broken.. It does read CD's and DVD's but it stops.... now I have a CDD5263 DVD rom from a Presario 2500 laptop. Is that...


Hello Dear,

Normally (70%) if manufacturer is same then you can replace the DVD/CD rom and it will work.
From this configiration I am unable to justify whether it will work or not. You can just try to insert that DVD rom in our faulty laptop and if its going in perfectly fine, Just connect the cable with the board (If you are expert in Assembling and Deseembling). It should work.
If you are not expert then Just visit the nearest shop and ask for the connection.

It should work.

With regards

Dvd rom not detected in "My Computer". compaq presario v3500.


There are a couple possibilities, One, the one you least want to hear, is that the drive has failed and you will need to replace it.

If you had accidentally "Safely removed.." the hardware, as sometimes the drive will be listed as removable. Once ejected, a simple restart will bring it back.

The CD drive in my sister's compaq presario c500 died...can i take the CD/DVD burner out of a toshiba satellite and put it in her compaq?


There is no real standard for laptop CD/ROMs I have seen some mount with screws and some that pop out with a tab. I am almost sure it will not work. You can either get an external USB cd from Wallmart or spend the money to get a replacement from the manufacturer.
Sorry about the bad news.

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.

COMPAQ PRESARIO DVD ROM NOT READING ANY CD AND DVD PLS HELP


It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.
Happy Holidays
