ON MY DELL LAPTOP W/WINDOWS 2000 PROFESSIONAL, I'M TRYING TO BURN A CD FOR THE FIRST TIME. I CAN DOWNLOAD THE CD INTO THE LIBRARY BUT WHEN I GO TO BURN IT IT SAYS NO DEVICES FOUND FOR BURNING A CD. ON THE SCREEN IT SAYS ROXIO CD BURNER & 74 FREE MINUTES. THIS LAPTOP IS PROBABLY 10-15 YEARS OLD. IF THE UNIT IS NOT EQUIPPED FOR BURNING, IS THERE A WAY TO GET IT TO BURN CDS. THANKS,TOM.

    which dell latitude? there are a ton of different latitude laptops. please find the model number from the bottom of the laptop for example dell latitude e6410

  • Ekse Oct 03, 2010

    Thanks, I found the details of the laptop and it only has a CD rom reader. it can not burn.



    It is possible to buy a external cd burner.





    Here is the cheapest one available.






    This drive can read DVD discs and Cd's, it can also write / burn both DVD discs and Cd's.

    But since your laptop is very old, I can not guarantee that it will work properly. It may not work at all, or it may work a bit slower than its supposed to.

Hello Coreymanis,

You need to purchase the windows XP CD to get the Genuine CD Key.
You can reinstall windows 2000 Professional if you have CD Key of it, but it needed the CD also. If your friend having the CD you can use that CD and use the CD key which you have.

I suggest not to install windows 2000 professional because this has been expired as per Microsoft and no support available in future.

I need to reload Windows 2000 Pro on a corupt IBM Thinkpad.


Assuming you have no data to lose,,,, you could always try to download copy of Windows 2000 Professional and burn it to a CD. Before you do this,,, you have to make sure you have a sticker somwhere on your laptop with your original product key. If you do decide to download Windows 2000 Professional,,, make sure its an OEM copy,,, and of course there is no guarantee that it will be a full copy, or a copy without virus's in it. DO NOT try to download Windows 2000 Professional if you dont have the original product key, as it is illegal. Also,,, do not try and find a product key online,,, that is also illegal. I have to be perfectly clear that the only legal way to download somethign like Windows 2000 Professional is if u have the original product code or key. You can than use this newly burned copy to format and reinstall windows, and than from IBM's web site u can download all the drivers needed for your model
