Compaq presario dvd writer light blinking, dvd not working

Ever since I did some clean-up inside of my computer my dvd writer has not worked. I assume that I hooked up the drive incorrectly. The light on the writer constantly blinks and while the writer drive opens up, it won't shut and won't read. Any ideas

There could b possibly 2 reasons for this 1. you must have not connected the power cable to the writer properly 2. the writer must have received a mild shock due to improper connection of the power cable[ul have to get this repaired]
this is the only reason that explains y ur led light on the rom was constantly blinking.. but i need to know more.. Was ur dvd writer drive present on my computers??
even check the Sata cable or ide cable
but im sure its the connection problem mainly it could b from the Rom itself ur Rom must have lost its voltage resistance

Check if power jack working right. Try to change it with other jack. Sometimes the pins inside jack are loose. try to tight them.

If there is a little pin hole on the front use an unwound paper-clip. push it into the hole and the mechanism should release? Realy need more detail though.

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.

Dvd-rw not working after few seconds


Check for both the xp cd and the dvd writer.It may happen that your dvd writer is not functioning or it may happen that your xp cd has got the scratches. Replace the cd and see whether it is working or not. In the earliest case u have to clean the lense with a soft cloth. Still if u are getting the same problem the it may be required to replace the writer.

Regards.

USB DVD ROM no detected


You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.
