Hello

If your mini laptop is alive and well, all you need to do is to connect the external drive to its power supply, then use ONE cable between the drive and the computer, (unless otherwise stated by instruction manual)

then turn on the drive if it has a switch, the drive should be detected and work instantly on the laptop.

The only software that you need is a burning program, to burn disks, the drive should work / read disks without any extra software, that is probably included on the small disk.

Cdvd rom dont work on emachine, will a usb 2.0 external dvd rom drive work


If it is USB CD_Drive you can plug it in a USB port of the computer. You may have to install drivers, but usually Windows Update can download them from the Internet.

Well the disk actually works on most standard CD-ROMS. paper_bag.jpg If its cd-rom that is used in laptops (extremely thin) it should also work but you can always find a computer with one of these trays and then copy the contents.

Trying to install Dynes 5 in 1 memory card reader/writer on my Mac running 10.6.4 Can I put the small disk in my laptop drive - it is a slip in slot


If you're worried, put the small CD-ROM into some other computer, and copy the entire contents to a full-size CD-recordable disk (or to a USB memory-stick).

Then, carry the CD-R (or the memory-stick) to your computer.

How do i upload the disk onto my mac at home. There isnt a tray dvd-rom it is an ejectable disk format. I put the mini dvd in and nothing happens...seconds later it ejects.


You're fortunate the disc ejects. Many slot-loading DVD drives will get these mini discs stuck in them. You either need an external tray type DVD drive (some are $50 or less) or borrow a computer a tray type DVD drive with either the possibility of copying the data to the hard drive and then to a full size DVD (or dual optical drives (only one needs to be a writer) to copy from one to another). Check the specs for mini-disc (8 cm) support.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Disk drive does not recognize or read a disk


you could try removing the drivers from your device manager by going through contol panel or by right-clicking on My Computer and then on the hardware tab. you would find it under cd/dvd rom drives.Just right click and click on uninstall. Then if you dont have your driver disk you might be able to download it from softpedia.com. If you have installed drivers more than once you might be able to roll-back drivers but the best bet would be to just uninstall and re-install the drivers.

Hope this helps

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

When i try to copy dvd it keeps telling me to insert blank disc even though one is in there i can burn cds but not dvd it tells me to put in writeable disk and ive put in dvdr-w and dvd-r and still it...


Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

no you just need to fix your bios problem, if you dont have the manual take the battery out of the motherboard that keeps power to the bios keep it out for a few minutes put it back in then turn it on it should go to bios automatically then just go to set best defaults for ststem hit y for yes then hit enter and it should take off fine if it dont then you need to take it to a pro who can reset it for you manually or reprogram it that would be cheapest for you without trashing it.
