Generally what you will need to do is first open the computer case. Then you will see 2 screws on each side of the CD-Rom Drive. You will need to remove these screws. Now you should be able to slide the CD-ROM forward away from the front of the case. Before you completely remove it you will need to remove the cables at the back of the CD-ROM before removing them note the position of them. Now that the CD-ROM is removed bring it to the store and ask the associate for the correct replacement. Once you bring the replacement home installation is reverse of the listed procedure. One thing to not is the position of the Jumper on Slave, Master, or Cable Select. This will be explained on the instructions that come with the new drive. Whatever the jumper setting is on the old drive make sure it is set the same on the new drive. Once this is done turn the computer on and you should be all set. Good luck and keep me posted.

I have a Medion DVD-/CD- Writer and it does not allow me to play certain DVDs and does not allow me to drag and drop photos to burn on to CD or DVD. I have gone to the Medion website to download drivers...


click start control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to cd/dvd rom drives right click properties then properties again then tick enable cd digital cd audio for this cd rom device or scroll to dvd regions select the no _ for your specific area

your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd-rom then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
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.

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns


Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.

Complete shut down


I think you're out of luck without the CD. The only option would be to borrow a windows cd or get another copy.
