Question about Dell DVD-ROM for Dimension (6t903) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

External DVD Drives

I have a Dell Dimension 4600C with a CD Rom drive. I just got the WIndows 2007 package to install, and it came on a DVD. Is there any way I can tie in a laptop with a DVD drive to my computer so I don't have to buy and install a new DVD drive?

Hi,
Sorry to dissappoint you , but this not a possiblity.What you can to instead is copy the content of the DVD into a USB flash drive , and plugin the flash drive to your 4600c and install it from there.
A normal DVD reader writer drive , retails for not more that 65$ , so you can buy one two, more over local computer stores also keep refurbished drives, that you can get a good deal on.

Thanks
Mandeep

Hi! I have a Dell Dimension 4600C...my CDW/DVD stopped working...the drive wasn't being recognized at all. So I replaced it with a TSSTcorp CDW/DVD TS-L462D-0...didn't help...still not recognizing my...


Did you use the same SATA/PATA cable as from the last one? If you have a different cable try that. Also if its a PATA(also known as IDE. usually a flat wide cable) cable try switching it around maybe its backwards. Verify its getting power, are there lights? does it open?
After you have tried all that reboot. if windows detects the device you should be good, may just need to update the firmware from disc or from the TSST website. If windows does not detect it you can try to search manually using the add remove hardware wizard in the windows control panel. If none of this works, as crazy as it sounds... you may have another defective drive. Trying a known good one will see if thats the problem.
Hope this helps.

I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.

Dvd drive in dell does not work


depending on the drive it can be your upper and lower registry filters, use this link at your own risk and whenever you work in regedit, make sure you create a recovery point before hand!
