    I have had the DVD Burners on my Gateway Notebook go bad (Slowed Down progressively) Started out at max speed when Ripping or Burning. Had same problem with my original Gateway and finally got Gateway to replace burners. Then finally entire Laptop. Went to a Gateway Tablet Notebook. Started out fine but now back to same problem. Example: 2hrs+ to encode and 1-1/2 hrs to burn. Used DVD Cloner and sometimes DVD Shrink 3.2. (Note: initially took less than 1/2 that time)

    Finally decided to give up and purchase an Sony-Multiformat DVD-R/-RW/+R/+R DL/+RW Recorder with 1080p Upconversion-RDRGX360

    Being somewht of a novice, I could use some step by steps to utilize the new Sony with or without my Gateway Notebook. ie: Hookups; etc.

    As probably noticed the bulk of my DVD recording is to create a single backup to all the Purchased DVD's In m library.

Download cd driver for a gateway nv54 laptop

Your operating system shouldn't need a new driver for that. CD drives are recognized configured automatically. You can try cleaning the laser lens on the CD Drive with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you'll need to replace the drive.

Is the gateway nv53780 series have a cd burner

Look at your cd drawer. If it says DvDrw or CDrw then it will burn CD's. Sometimes it might say CD Rewritable.

If it doesn't you can always purchase one that can go inside the laptop or you can purchase one that can be external and connects through the usb ports.

My computer doesn't recognize my dane-elec 8gb usb stick , although other usb devices do work.

1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

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.

Lite-on DVDRW SHW-160p65 DVD-RW drive

Where are you looking to recognize the disks? if it is in my computer in Windows it would most likely be because the Roxio software was what was recognizing the disks. generally Windows does not do a very good job of recognizing blank disks. I would look at the disk information in your current CD burning software and see what that says.
