Hi,I hope you can help.Of course Dell wants me to buy from them.I hear I can buy alot cheaper and maybe better if I knew what I was even talking baout exactly. So, here's what Dell says I need I-OMagic 16x/4x/16x DVD RW and 40x/24x/ CD RW with plus/minus signs there. USB 2.0 External DVD RW Drive.Part # 1DVD16DDME.
Talking to other people I don't know in Staples,etc. say I can buy from Newegg.com cheaper and better and it will work but how am I to know for sure?
Any help and info would be great.Thank you my computer wont reconize my Memorex dvd+rw blank disks. the menu with options of what to do next that normaly comes up when blank disks are inserted doesnt show up
For thing like DVD burner drives, Windows XP/Vista offer universal support, meaning that it won't matter that you own a Dell computer, you can buy any DVD drive and it will work.
I recommed the following for $51. It also comes with software to support burning DVDs, just in case your current software does not offer this feature.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
if this fails to fix the problem
It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it
hope this helps
