Two things you can check. First, whenever you burn a DVD or CD you must be sure to "close" or "finalize" the disc. Often this is done automatically, but double-check to make sure. If the disc was left "open" so that more files could be added later then it will probably only play on the computer that burned it. Second, there are some DVD drives that just won't read every type of recordable disc. Ask your friend to burn a DVD-R instead of a DVD+R and try to play it on your computer. Or, check if his DVD+R recording plays OK on other computers. If so, your DVD drive may be faulty and need replacing. Good luck.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

Advent PC change DVD Drive


On almost all CD-Roms and DVD-ROMS there is a very, very small pin-hole on the disk drive door located, usually in the middle lower third of the door... but not always. When you find it you will need to do the following:
  1. Take a medium or large sized paper clip and straighten it out so at least two of the clips sections are straight.
  2. Put the straightened wire into the hole and push it gently straight into the hole until you feel some resistance. This is the release mechanism for the drive door and track lock.
  3. You then push firmly and steadily into the release tab until the door and track pop out. It only will pop out about a half an inch or a little less, but it isn't locked any more.
  4. Now you can use your fingers and pull the tray the rest of the way out to retrieve you media
I hope this will resolve your problem, Good Luck

DDW-081 CD\DVD Recorder can't read CD


It is possible for your optical drive to read only DVDs and not CD. This is most likely a fault with your drive and may need a repair or replacement.

Relatd to slow working


These are two different problems...
1. most likely you have loaded too many programmes in the startup...uninstall the unwanted programmes...and clean the registry by registry cleaner.... clean your c drive or the drive in which OS is loaded by system tool...disc cleanup (in accessories)

2. increase your RAM if you still want to use all the programmes you have loaded.

3. Use a cd rom cleaner disc to see it the rom stars reading...or else you will have to replace the CD Rom

Major PC Crash!!!!!


what operating system are you using? If its windows xp and you are using your factory restore discs, you might want to try using a normal windows xp disc and doing a fresh install. Another option is that your hard drive is bad or is going bad. I would download the ultimate boot cd and run seatools off the ubcd. Check your hard drive to see if its still ok.
