Question about Hi-Val DVD Kit (DVD6X-00R1) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

DVD-ROM crashes Hi, I've recently built my own computer, everything is set up properly, cables in the right places etc that I know off, however I've been having troubles when getting my DVD drive to run DVDs, when I put a dvd in it the computer crashes and a blue screen comes up and performing a memory dump. I know it's not the DVD drive as I've tested on other computers and it seems to work fine, I just have the problem on my custom one. These are my specs: OS: Windows Vista Home basic Motherboard: Asus M2N-SLI DELUXE RAM: 3GB Corsair DDR2 Hard drive: 250GB, SATA DVD Drive: Sony DVD+R 20x (Reads DVD-ROMS) Graphics Card: Gecube Radeon HD 3850 CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) core processor 6400+ I was wondering if it was anything to do with the settings of the RAM in the BIOS? As the blue screen on the computer during the physical memory dump told me to turn off either caching or shadowing, however that isn't an option on my BIOS so i'm unsure how to do it if that's the problem.

Checked your RAM chips? Remove them and boot up and see if it will beep. If you have another DVD drive, swap it and try again. The board battery rarely goes, and only change it when it is not keeping the date/time etc, it won't help in outputting video.

How do i install this drive?


Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.


Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.





Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

Windows crashed total so installed new windows vista pro now my dvd say its only cd and will not write dvd or and tells me no disk in drive when i insert blank dvd


It sounds like you need to upgrade the DVD-ROM drivers on your operating system. You'll need to go to the manufacturer's website to get the drivers for Vista.
1) Determine the manufacturer of your DVD-ROM drive. If you bought the drive separately from the computer, you need to go to the website of the company that made the drive (such as Samsung, Toshiba, etc.). If you bought it as part of a desktop or laptop, go to the website of the company that built the computer (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.).
2) Look for a link titled "Support" or possibly "Downloads" in the menu at the top of the webpage.
3) How you find the specific driver for your device will vary depending on which website you are on. Normally you have to enter in the model number of either your computer or DVD-ROM drive and it will show you what drivers are available.
4) Download the driver for Windows Vista (make sure you get the 32-bit version or 64-bit version, depending on your version of Vista)
5) Install the driver, typically by double-clicking the downloaded file and then following any on-screen directions. You'll then most likely have to reboot as well.
Everything should work after this. If you need specific help in finding the driver file to download, you'll need to provide me with the brand and model of your computer or DVD-ROM drive.
Hope that gets you up and running!

two solutions:
1-boot your windows from "Safe Mode". then download and install a driver for your DVD Drive.
(sometimes windows crashes because of installing new devices like motherboard or CPU)
2-reinstall your operating system (OS).

Driver for SONY CDRW/DVD drive seems to be corrupt. Help, anybody


Go to my computer, and right click on it, when the window opens
click on properties, when window opens find devise mgr and click on it.

When devise mgr opens, look for cd/dvd rom drives, click on the little
sign in front of this and it will expand, and you will see the dvd drive.

Right click on the drive and when the window opens click on properties, now at the top you will see a driver tab, click on the driver tab, and it should say microsoft for the driver provider.

The drivers for the rom drives is built into windows,

Now click on the general tab, in the box, does it say this devise is working, or does it say the devise is not working.

You can go back to driver tab, and click on update driver, let it search
the internet for a driver, follow the instructions, it will either say it has the best driver, or it will find one and install it and you have to restart the system,

If the driver is there, and the unit says its working, then it is the drive that is bad, and you might have to buy a new one.

If you get any error codes or if it says anything, you can post back
so we can get this problem fix,if possible.
