Right click my computer, choose properties, then click on Hardware, Click on Device manager.

In the Device manager window, expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives. Check for any warning signs (usually a small "yield" icon). If thats the case... Right click, choose properties, go to the Driver tab. and see if the device is working properly. Here u can choose to update the driver using Windows update site. But, most probably it wont find what your looking for.

So, your best bet is to; note down the Make & model of your built in burner.

Then go to the manufacturers site and download the newest drivers.

Also, do a windows update. this is fix any OS level issues that will not recognize your device.

hope this helps. .

How to copy all driver installation software from my pc tower onto a 16gb usb drive and then plug usb into old laptop with new software


It doesn't work that way. The current driver software that you have installed will not work on another install. Your best bet is is to go Dell website and enter your service tag(serial number) of your computer and download drivers. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04?c=&l=&s=bsd?c=us

Trying to burn some files to a memorex cd-rw. no computer will recognize that a cd is in the cd drive, even though one is in there. might be a formatting issue, but can't get any software to recognize cd,...


You might want to try the nero lite software. Most of these so called softwares do not reconize some burners. There is a site that tells you these problems. Try to google your (lets say hp cd) and then say EX: hp cd drive (try to use a model)..+not recognizing my burner, don't use spaces in the query.
Nero is a good burning software that enables most burners to be recognized.
If you have had Roxio .. this software is not very friendly to some of the burners out there. If you have this software get rid of it, uless you have the original disk or it come with oem on the restore disc.
PS Use Nero Lite it works the berries!

When you try to reinstall it and it tells you that it's already on there, does it give you the option to continue? If so, then continue with the installation and it will restore any missing files. Please let me know if this helps.

CD & DVD player driver


Laser failure is very common on CD and DVD players/recorders, they are very easy to change and very inexpensive these days.
I keep three or four of this one on the shelf in my workshop all the time.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106226
The beauty of this one is that it comes with both a black and a beige bezel to suit most machines, it is also a "retail" version so it comes with burning and playback software, not all burning software will recognize all burners and often people phone me up asking why the new burner they have bought (OEM) will not burn, infact their burning software cannot even recognize their new burner.
Also some burners do not recognize all makes of CD and DVD disks, I have yet to come accross a make of disk that that Liteon doesn't burn with no problems.
