Please try to turn off the computer.
Give it 30 seconds to let the Hard Drive's disks stop spinning and then turn it on.
While the computer is at the early booting stages please press the DVD's eject button to get the media out.

Please check the media for defects as this could be the reason for the situation.

Look very closely at your dvd drive bezel, you should be able to see a small hole usually just below the draw.

Straighten out a paper clip and push it, quite firmly into the hole, this is the failsafe method of opening a locked/jammed disk drive.

Connect the DVD drive.
Try getting in to the BIOS by tapping F2 when the computer powers on.
Go to BOOT and change the first boot device to the DVD drive. Make sure that the name of the DVD drive is listed there.
Save it using F10 and it will try to boot from the DVD drive.

Replaced IDE DVD writer with a SATA DVD writer. Powered up XP Pro system, but no drive letter shows up. There is power to the DVD drive, but the OS does not see it. No BIOS updates available from EPoX.


Check your bios settings. If you already have two SATA hard disk drives in your system the bios should also list your SATA DVD writer as third in the list. Make sure the bios list the DVD writer. Remember all SATA drives including SATA DVD drives are all seen as Masters. Check your Boot order settings as well. If windows sill does not list a drive letter for your SATA DVD click, Start/Run and type: diskmgmt.msc in the run window. Assign a drive letter to the drive manually.

Cheers!

Disk storage medium stuck in DVD-Rom.


If there is a disc stuck in the drive, removing the drive from the case is not necessary. Just take a paperclip and stick it in the manual release hole in the front of the drive.

How do I install a SATA DVD drive in my 655A V1.0?


Hi stewwiles, If your bios does not see & list the drive neither will windows hardware manager/ device manager. Check your manual. Enter your bios. The DVD drive should be listed in the same menu as your hard disk drive. Than go to the title "Boot" in your bios & make sure your DVD is listed in the boot order. (List of normal boot order):
1st boot device= Floppy drive
2nd boot device= DVD drive (model no#)
3rd boot device= Primary hard disk drive (model no#)

Make sure your DVD's jumper setting is set to "Master".

Good luck!

No DVD-ROM boot


If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured. Did you hear 2 beeps(not together) Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings' and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'. Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is. Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.
