Hi,

dependant on operating system.
you should not need drivers for cd/dvd drives, as the standard drivers supplied with windows 2000-ME-XP should be sufficent to work the drive.
i,d suggest checking the driver jumper block at the rear of the drive, and seeing if it,s connecting as a master or slave drive, if it,s not being recognised by the system. if the hard-drive jumper ( Small plastic Block ) On the back of the drive is set as Slave, set the CD Drive as Master, or Vice-Versa.

Hp gdr 8162b ethernet driver


HP Partsurfer does not recognise gdr-8162b at all, nor does anything show up for this code anywhere on the HP site.
eBay sellers seem to think this is DVD-ROM drive, manufactured by Hitachi-LG and sometimes rebranded by HP whose part number (according to some eBayers) is 323588-001.
HP Partsurfer also thinks that 323588-001 is a DVD-ROM drive.
I'm afraid therefore that I'm unable to find an ethernet driver for this code without more info on the HP product.
Sorry

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

How to remove the CD rom drive in a HP Pavalon slimline client?


See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

I need to reset the ram on a hp pavillion slimline


The DVD drive should have one or two small phillips head screws on the side that will allow you to slide the drive out through the front of the PC. Just be careful that you don't damage the ribbon cable when you do this.

Dimension 4600 cd/dvd drives not responding


Try uninstalling them in devive manager then rebooting and see 
if they are reinstalled automaticaly as drivers should be in xp already.

Just right click on them and select uninstall.

If that doesnt work then try update drivers and let xp search online for them.

Failing that then try changing the cable thats attatched to the motherboard.

Hope that helps? :)
