Since you didn't tell us the model of your pc i don't know if it's a SATA or PATA device. To find that yourself you will need to find that yourself: open the case and look at the back of your optical unit - if the cable is a wide grey or blue ribbon then it's a PATA, if it's a narrowred, thicker cable it's a SATA.

New computer, never used a burner before. how to use the dvd burner?

Purchase or download free burning software. There is a number of different softwares to choose for your DVD burning needs. SwiftDisc Burning Wizard Premium, Xilisoft DVD Creator and Nero 9 come with a free trial. The purchasing price is less than $100, as of 2009. Ashampoo Burning Studio Free and BurnAware Free are available if you do not want to buy the software.

  • 2 Insert a DVD into the burner. The DVD-RWs offer the option of erasing the DVD or adding more application to the disk. Do not use this type of disk for playing movies in a regular DVD player or music in a stereo. DVD-R disks are non-erasable. Take extra care when burning on this type of disk, any errors or accidentally opening the drive will cause the disk to stop functioning.
  • 3 Run your burning software. When you insert the disk, a window will appear. Press the "X" in the top right corner. Click on the "Start Menu" icon. Go to "Programs" then click on the burning application folder. You will have different options depending on the program. Typically, you will have the choice of burning data, videos or music.

    I have a camrecorder sony handycam dcr-dvd201 when i insert the new dvd apparear an error message c:13:00 and in the middle of the lcd the symbol of the disc breaking and the eject.

    From the user manual on page 6, this camcorder can only use DVD-RW or DVD-R DVDs (It can't use DVD+R, DVD+RW, etc).
    Take the DVDs that you purchased back and buy the correct type.

    I need a new IDE ribbon cable to install a new CD-RW/DVD and am looking for the type of connection to buy and a source from which to purchase.

    Go to any small (or large) computer-store, and ask for an 80-pin IDE cable. Probably not more than $5.

    Or, try a local "thrift store", and browse through their "electronics" stuff.

    Or, find a computer "hoarder" -- they will have piles of cables, to give away.

    Looking for possible hard drive how hard is it to self install --with windows xp

    A few simple steps:

    0. find your original Dell "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks, or order a replacement set from Dell, or run software on your computer to burn a set of "System Restore" disks.
    1. do an "inventory" of installed programs (Adobe? MS Office?) and extract any "license-keys" you need (anti-virus software, purchased software).
    2. backup your E-mail and contacts and music and other files, either to an external disk-drive, or burn some CD/DVD disks, or copy across your local network to another computer.
    3. turn the computer off
    4. disconnect the AC power
    5. remove the battery
    6. remove the old disk-drive
    7. determine if it was an EIDE ("parallel-ATA") drive, or a SATA drive, and buy a new drive of the same type
    8. mount the new disk-drive
    9. reinsert the battery
    10. reconnect the AC adapter
    11. take your "System Restore" disks, and "boot" from the first disk, and reinstall Windows and the Dell applications
    12. run Windows Update repeatedly (Service Pack 3, post SP3 fixes, Internet Explorer 8) to get all the fixes, and the fixes-to-the-fixes
    13. install anti-virus software
    14. install other purchased software, using license-keys you preserved
    15. download the latest versions of "free" software (iTunes, Adobe Reader, WinAmp, et cetera)
    16. import your "data" files


    if both the "old" and "new" disk-drives are SATA, and you have a desktop computer with two "unused" SATA ports, you can use software, such as the commercially-sold "Partition Magic", to "clone" the old disk-drive, and to "expand" the volume to span all the "unused/unallocated" space on the new drive, e.g., copy 20GB from "old" to "new", and then "expand" the 20GB partition to the full size of the "new" disk-drive. Install the new drive into your notebook computer, and enjoy the additional "free" space.

    Invalid book address

    this is to do with settings in Nero.
    The book-Type is settings For CD/DVD et,c.
    The actual Format the disk has to be written in. If you,ve got the book-type set to write a CD for example, and burned a DVD. it would error as it needs to write more data, than the Disk Allows.
    CD 650mb. DVD 4370 mb or equivalent.
    I,d uninstall-re-install nero, and ensure you select your type of disk to Compile. Which will automatically select The Correct Book-Type for The compilation required.

    I have a Dell Dimension 4550 running windows XP Home. I just recently purchased a new DVD drive(Sony Optiarc AD-7221A) and I can't get it to work. The first drive I tried was a Lite-on DVD burner, and now...

    sounds like you have issues with your hard drive.  go to start>run.
    type this in without the " "
    "cmd", hit ok.  a black screen pops up.  type "cd.." and hit enter.  type in "cd.." and hit enter again.  type "chkdsk c: /f /r".  It will say the drive can not be checked, it is in use.  hit "y" to schedule a check at boot up.  type"exit" and reboot your computer.  let me know if this helps.

    DVD Drive won't recognise blank dvd

    it sounds as if you have purchased a DVDROM drive and not a DVDRW, or the drive if it is a rewritable is faulty.
