Make sure you have a software application installed on your computer that allows DVD s to be viewed. A good app is Cyberlink Power DVD player. You can also download and install the latest version of MS Media Player.

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

My DVD RW drive won''t open and the one below it opens sometimes,


Hello;

Have you tried Windows Explorer; "right" click on the drive and select 'Eject'?

Also, if it's not reading at times - sounds like dirty lense; use CD/DVD cleaner; you can buy those anywhere these days very cheaply.

I hope that helps,

Thanks.
