Make sure both aren't set as Master, check that you didn't accidently unplug either the power cable or ide cable. If that doesnt do it load into the BIOS and see if its showing up there if not try changing out the cable. But short of a drive failure or port failure it should be one of those.

Bad hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Computer BIOS recognizes the SATA DVD Rewriter but Windows XP does not. The drive opens the loading door but it does not appear in the Windows XP explorer (My Computer).


Windows XP doesn't nativey support SATA. Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports sata to IDE emulation.

Hello mirelycas Hi, check your power plug at the back of the drive and see if its loose, If you have done this, most likely you have a bad drive. Does the drive appear on the BIOS screen? Does the Drive appear on other computers? The common caused of undetected drives would be
  • bad logic board
  • improper bios setup, not enable
  • loose power cord
  • loose solder on the power cord
  • faulty data cable
  • Virus infection
Make sure that all above list are good, if not, you may need to replace the drive.

It says system boot up fail



Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

Samsung DVD±RW Dual Layer


With the price of those units, it's usually cheaper to replace them. You could check with Samsung and find out if it's still covered under their warranty.

Drive light gets stuck on at reboot


Hi,
Try swapping the Jumper block ( Small plastic pin connector ) on The Back Of the DVD Drive. If using both Hard-Drive And DVD Drive on the Same IDE Cable. The DVD Should be set as Master And Hard-Drive As Slave, Or Vice versa.
Failing This, put The Hard Drive On Primary IDE Channel, And DVD On Secondary Channel.
These suggestions, have been made as it appears from your problem listed, that the 2 drives Are Conflicting with each Other.
Finally, is to try a different 4 pin ( Molex ) power cable to either device/Drive. if you have a single rail Power supply unit. the 2 units sharing a joint power cable, may be draining the PSU.

Hope this helps.

Mike @ compurepair.

Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.

DVD BURNER DISAPPERS FROM "MY COMPUTER"


You can try using the ide cable connector that the other drive is on and swap them round just to illiminate the cable connector, but at the end of the day i think your DVD burner is faulty and requires replacing, as they are very innexpensive to replace as you wili probably know,so don't waste too much time trying to solve it. The drives dont last as long as they used to because, keeping the price of burners down, like anything else means cutting corners and costs and in burners cases as was the case with PS2's the lasers are cheap and soon fail.
