My burner won't burn in my dell Studio 1537


Inside the DVD drive is a laser optical eye. This eye get's dirty.

Suggest remove ALL power, then open DVD drive tray. Use a can of compressed air for computers to clean, and aim down towards the bottom of the tray.
(Remove AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery)

Disk cleaners have the tendency to wipe the 'gunk' off, then wipe it back on.

Also make sure you still have burner software. Nothing like going to use the DVD burner one day, only to find the Nero burner software was just a trial.

It's FREE, and NOT a trial.

Plus a DVD drive is mechanical. Wears out over time. Has a 'Life Cycle'.

http://www.laptopdvdrw.com/dell-studio-1537-slot-cd-dvd-rw-burner-drive-p-37670.html

Just an example. You may find a better price from another reputable dealer.

The DVD drive is held in with ONE screw,

Dell studio 1537 slot load dvd drive when cd is iserted there is a clicking and whirring sound and cd is ejected immediately


Hi,

This is already a mechanical problem on dvd drive. Try upgrading optical dvd drive firmware from Dell's support website. Then, download and install IMG BURN. Run img burn. The software will perform a test. If the problem persists, have your optical dvd drive replaced.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

CD wont eject from drive


Have you already tried to mannually open the tray, by inserting a thin straight object (like a unbent paper clip) in the manual eject hole on the optical disk drive? The hole exists for that pupose.
