Question about CD & DVD Burners

Drive not found

Hello,

I have just updated the driver for my dvdrw drive and now the entire system doesn't recognize that the drive is even there. I can't remember what the name of the drive is, but it's a lightscribe enabled dvd-rw drive from Samsung. Any solutions? The bios doesn't recognize that there is a drive either.

    My cd/dvd drives are not showing from the "My Computer Screen" but they appear in the device manager with a yellow like triangle with a exclamation mark beside it. How do I reinstall them without wiping out the system.

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
if you dont have a disk with the driver you will need to download one

My problem is that my system does'nt show any dvd drive in Lap


I had the same problem, it occurred right after windows installed sp2 and my laptop showed no dvd player with any program, I restored my laptop to the previous day before the update and it worked fine again, after that I just let windows update by itself and it has been a week and everything is fine, also in device manager open the dvd + sign and right click your dvd and click update drivers, if that does not work, right click your dvd, and then click delete, and then reboot your computer, laptop whatever and the computer will automatically recognize the player on startup and it will install again and hopefully that will get your drivers updated, do not worry about deleting the dvd player, it will reinstall all by itself, just have to reboot..thanks

Pioneer DVR-K17B


I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? I have an HP Notebook dv6700 with a Pioneer DVDRW [DVR-K17B ATA Device]. For the past few months I haven't been able to burn anything to disc. I can't find any firmware updates online. I'm not sure if I need to buy a new drive?

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

PD CD-RW 24x1040 external usb2 firmware


This device is meant only for CDs. However, the drive is an internal CDRW with IDE interface. You can substitute some DVDRW drives, but some DVD drives are picky about voltage and amperage. This enclosure is on the weak side for most DVDRW drives. You'll want to find a DVDRW that can work on as low as 8VDC on the 12VDC line. And the drive can't draw any more than .75A on the 12VDC line either. If the drive requires higher amounts, yor system may only recognize the drive as being connected to your system, but it'll never have the power to read the disc, and just kick it out after spinning the disc around for a short time.
