Your jumper should be set the same as your previous drive if it's a replacement.

HELP MY COMPUTER WONT READ ANY CD'S EXCEPT A DVD,, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?? ANY HELP


hi

you have either one of these ..

5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read

EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed

make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds

if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .


go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .

if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself

i hope this helps

  7. Step 1 Insert the CD-RW you want to erase.

  9. Step 3 Click on the "Erase" tab.
  10. Step 4 Choose the drive that has the CD-RW you want to erase.
  11. Step 5 Click the "Erase" button.
  • and if this not works then right click on the CD drive and "format" it.
Please rate me if this solution works for you

The pc wont let me burn the imesh tunes on to cd.it says error.how would i know if i have a re-writer


if the cd has been written to already, you cannot write on it again. If the cd says CD +/- R, then it is not rewritable, look for a CD that says +/- RW. If it doesn't say either of those, a regular cd looks light grey, while a rewritable is usually a lot darker.
