Caljanes shuttle pc

Ya know the only thing wrong with that solution? It has no CD/DVD drive! There is a slot for it, but I would have to install it.. I am not sure I want to deal with that right now, maybe later. As I said before, I just wanted the very basic pc, and I guess that is what I got! Thanks again

No matter which modem you purchase the manufacturer will also have the drivers available on their website. If you can get the driver downloaded on another computer then transfer it to a USB thumdrive (flashdrive, memory stick, etc...) then you could put it on ***********-in-law's computer without using a CD.

Non functioning CD/DVD drive on Shuttle SN41G2 PC


Does Windows still detect the drive? If you were to go into My Computer or Computer (depending on the version of Windows) are you able to see the drive?
Place a DVD or CD (Software or Multimedia) that you have tested on a different system and then use Windows Explorer to browse the drive.
To launch Explorer right click on My Computer (Vista/Win 7: Computer) and then select explorer. Select the DVD drive and see if you are able to view the contents.
If Windows still detects the drive and you are unable to view the contents of a tested DVD or CD then it would most likely be the drive.

Issue Installing 4th Drive Device (2 DVD Drives and 2 Harddrives)


You cannot plug an IDE ribbon in the floppy slot (port). The total IDE drives you can install is four (4). But check your jumper configuration. The DVD & DVD/CD-ROM cannot have the same jumper configuration to share the same IDE slot. One has to be MASTER (MS) and the other SLAVE (SL). Or you may put both drives on CABLE SELECT (CS).

How to install a second dvd player in my compaq


The computer needs to be opened up to properly install the CD or DVD drive into the computer. The method for opening the case will vary depending upon the case. Most new systems will use a panel or door on the side of the system while older systems may require the whole cover be removed. Remove and set aside and screws fastening the cover or panel to the computer case and then remove the cover.
Computer cases can generally hold a number of external drives but only a few are generally used. Any unsed drive slot has a cover that prevents dust from entering the computer and makes the case look better. To install the drive, it will be necessary to remove a 5.25" drive slot cover from the case. Removal of these generally is done by pushing some tabs either on the inside or outside of the case. Some may be screwed into the case.
The majority of all CD and DVD drives for computer systems use the IDE interface. This interface can have two devices on a single cable. Each device on the cable must be placed into the appropriate mode for the cable. One drive is listed as the master and the other secondary drive is listed as a slave. This setting is generally handled by one or more jumpers on the back of the drive. Consult the documentation or diagrams on the drive for the location and settings for the drive. If the CD/DVD drive is going to be installed on an existing cable, the drive needs to be set into the Slave mode. If the drive is going to reside on its own IDE cable alone, the drive should be set to the Master mode.
At this point, the CD/DVD drive needs to be placed into the computer. The method for installing the drive will vary depending on the case. The two most common methods for installing a drive into a case is either through drive rails or directly into the drive cage. Rails: Place the drive rails onto the side of the drive and fasten it with screws. Once the drive rails have been placed on both sides of the drive, slide the drive and rails into the appropriate slot in the case. Make sure to affix the drive rails so that the drive is flush with the case when it is fully inserted into the case. Drive Cage: Slide the drive into the slot in the case so that the drive bezel is flush with the computer case. When this is done, fasten the drive to the computer case by placing screws into the appropriate slots or holes in the case.
Many people use the CD/DVD drive inside of their computer to listen to audio CDs. In order for this to work, the audio signal from the CD needs to be routed from the drive to the computer audio solution. This is typically handled by a small two wire cable with a standard connector. Plug this cable into the back of the CD/DVD drive. The other end of the cable will plug either into a PC audio card or motherboard depending upon which the computer uses for audio. Plug the cable into the connector labeled as CD Audio.
At this point, the CD/DVD drive needs to be attached to the computer through an IDE cable. For most users, the drive will reside as a secondary drive to the hard drive. If this is the case, locate the free connector on the IDE ribbon cable between the computer and the hard drive and plug it into the drive. If the drive is going to be on its own cable, plug the IDE cable into the motherboard and one of the other connectors of the cable into the CD/DVD drive.
The only internal item left to do for installing the drive is to plug it into the power supply. This is done by locating one of the 4-pin Molex connectors from the power supply and inserting it into the power connector on the CD/DVD drive.
At this point the drive is fully installed into the computer case so it can be closed up. Replace the panel or cover to the computer case. Be sure to fasten the cover or panel back to the case using the screws that were set aside when the cover was removed.
All of the installation steps for the CD or DVD drive are now completed. The only thing left to do is return power to the computer. Plug the AC cord back into the power supply and be sure to flip the switch to the on position.
Regards..

Won't reconize DVD burner


Well, the CD ribon cable goes into the IDE 2 slot on the Mainboard and the furthest connector on the other end is the master, the second one closest to the board is the Slave connector. The CD drive has a jumper on the back between where the ribbon and the power connector go, on the case some where it should have a diagram showing the jumper setting to put it in as master or slave. Set it accordingly.

Same with Hard drives.

If the Hard drive has a diferent Cable like a SATA, then be sure to get a SATA as the new one.

Now the IDE cables may be bad check them for damage just to be on the safe side.

I have just bought a digital photo frame. The necessary software that comes with it is on a 'mini' CD. I have an Acer box that you normally just push an ordinary CD into. I cannot get it to take the...


Dear Kayty -

Unfortunately, the "slot" cdrom drives are not intended for use with the mini CDs. However, there are a few options; Cheapest and easiest would be to go to the Digital Photo Frame manufacturer's web site and download the software - more often than not, all of the necessary drivers and utilities can just be downloaded and installed from the net.

Otherwise, you might consider purchasing an external cdrom drive, generally costing between 30 and 60 bucks new, that would connect to your computer via USB cable. Maybe you've considered buying a CD or DVD Burner for your computer? Either one would work for installing the software from a mini-cd.

Here's a link to an external CDRW drive on ebay to give ya an idea:

Hope this helps ya!

Won't turn on


Ok it sounds as if ya Power Supply Unit (PSU) may have gone faulty. Generally when a PC won't turn on it can only be caused by a few things. a faulty PSU, a faulty component/card stopping the PSU from working, Motherboard Fault. Faulty RAM

Ya have to isolate which one. So first open ya case up, then take note of the way things are connected. (Write them down, draw a picture) Then unplug ya Hard Drive, try it,  & then ya CD/DVD & try it, take any add on cards out, try it... & so on... to isolate ya faulty bit.

If it still doesn't go after removing everything except the Motherboard, then ya gonna have to try another Know Good PSU.... of course if it doesn't  work then, ya have a MotherBoard fault.

Just work thru it slowly.. and ya be all good.
