Unable to install Win 7


the drawer motor being out is just an annoyance, it has nothing to do with reading the disk; it may be used for years that way with no problem.

As for the Win 7 DVD. It will NOT work in a CD-only drive, has to be a DVD-drive for obvious reasons....it's a DVD.

Did you set the BIOS to boot from the DVD drive first ?

Hi Charles,

The issue is due to the driver corruption. You need not worry, there is a simple solution for this.

Go to device manage --> right click on your CD/DVD drive and then click uninstall and then restart your computer. Do not keep any CDs while you do this. Just try this out.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.

P;ease help me. i use real player to burn cds. ive never burt a dvd. but i want to use it now and my player keeps telling me my cd and dvd burners are not detected. why are they not working please help me.


burning and cd requires a cd burner... the fact that you burn cds does not necessarily mean that you can also burn dvd's.. to burn a dvd you need to have a dvd burner unit installed. check on tray that comes out on you cd/burner if it says RW DVD.. if not chances are you only have a cd burner but is not a dvd burner.

Burn your CD by Nero and select "Make Video CD" option

other wise it will writen on CD as data format which CD/DVD Player will not understand.
