Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a MACH 16X Double Layer DVD+-RW/+-R/CDRW. PN: U-30265. I am running XP on a Dell box. The Drive was originally in a Gateway Box when the mother board broke. I moved it to the dell. The driver in the Dell will let me read CD disk only. At one time I did have the driver disk for this drive. I don't know what I did with it. How can I get a driver disk or what web sight should i go to to find the driver(s) to down load?

Optical units, of all kinds, have just one single driver, that hasn't been changed since 2003. You are referring to the burning program - the one that uses the dvd-rw to burn the disks you create in it.
When you moved the disk you should also have installed one of them. There are hundreds of them, i use this free one

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

Data on a read only cdrw cannot be deleted from a Comaq pressario running widows xp


Dear sir,
your Comaq DVD drive is only a DVD R(Read) drive? or its RW(Read Write) drive.
If its simply DVD drive then it cant write or erase CD content. If its RW then you can. just use NERO software.

    Pc died


    Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
    Hope this helps.....

    Hey there dhruvr, your problem is minor. Even though your DVD drive has max speed of 16X, the software you use to burn can vary this according to their default setting. ranging from 4-16 times. You can change these by opening the extra option boxes, when you are burning, or going into the settings for each of your burning programs. You should only have to do this once. It will remember your last setting. Good Luck!
