    Also since it worked before, you could Click Start > Right click "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager Button > Expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives > Select Your device > Right click on it > Select Properties > Driver Tab > "Roll Back Driver" (third button down on the left side). Sometimes driver updates cause issues, so this Roll Back option is usually the Fix when a driver update is at fault.

Dvd/cd writer will not recognize cd's or blank disk's will recognize dvd but not play.


Did this problem occur after a OS upgrade? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD-ROM drives, open and uninstall the DVD/CD rom. Reboot your machine, Win 7 should apply the correct driver. If you need a driver go to your manufacturer's website. Drivers and support section.

Right click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>does your CD-ROM have a yellow ? or ! on it?
If so, then you somehow need to install a driver for your computer to recognize your drive. If you can get an external CD-ROM that connects to a USB port, maybe you can install the drivers that way. Once that CD-ROM is working, then you can get the drivers installed for your modem. Hope that helps!

I have an SR1000 SR182ONX desktop, but the front of my built in DVD/CD writer/player say SR192ONX. I can't burn or play DVDs. The current driver (TS-H552L) says it is not a writer. I need the correct...


It sounds like your operating system quit seeing your dvd/cd writer/player.
to check this locate mycomputer icon, or goto start and locate computer and right click on it.
a window will open, click on properties, then left click on Device manager you will see all the devices on your computer, and you should see DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list of devices. if you right click on this you have a choice of scan for new devices or Properties, if you scan for new devices chances are it will not find you dvd/cd-rom device, windows operating system very seldom does. so click on properties,
You will see several choices like reload driver, update driver, uninstall drive depending on your operating system. If you have the DVD/CD-rom device cd with the software driver then and only then you may uninstall the driver, so you can reload it to make the operating system see the device after you reboot the computer, then install the driver again... If you do not know what I'm talking about...Take the computer back to the repair shop and have them to the repairs to make the Windows Operating system see the DVD/CD-rom device.

Good luck...
