DVD/CD - RW Combo Drives

Hello,
I have a Dell 4600 with a Samsung DVD-ROM SD-616E drive that no
longer works. I want to replace it with a DVD/CD-RW combo drive.
Will any combo drive work or is there some compatibility issue I need to address when buying one?

Any brand should work as long as you have the correct drivers.

Either IDE (internal) or USB (external) will work.

I am unable to write cd with samsung 616e combo drive


Hi likeme2299
Unless you would succeed with other cd's from another manufacturer or updating the firmware , your drive is defective and is probably not worth reparing .
Best regards ,

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Media player says that it cant find the burner


I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
