Best drivers

  1. Clean the DVD drive completely. Remove the dust and dirt from the laser using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. In many cases, this simple task will resolve the DVD failure.
  2. Check your DVD drive settings. Make sure that you're not using "compatibility mode" drivers, and that performance settings are properly set.
  3. Update the driver for your DVD Drive Click "Start," "Control Panel," "System," "Hardware" and then "Device Manager." Highlight your DVD drive, click "Action" and then "Update Driver."

  4. Run troubleshooting software. There are several DVD testing software packages, such as SANDRA and CheckIt. These applications may be able to identify the exact problem with the DVD drive.
  5. Look for physical problems with the DVD drive. For example, if the drive is vibrating or making strange noises, you can check to see if the DVD drive is loose in the chassis. Another common physical problem is a jammed tray, which may be fixed by inserting a straightened paper clip into the hole next to the tray door.
please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.

Hi there! The Cardbus adapter should come with a cd installer/driver. The driver should be compatible with the operating system you're running on your com[puter.

Try to install the driver first adn then when prompted, insert the cardbus adapter.

Hope it works!

External hard disk and pcmcia cardbus

There may not be enough power from the cardbus to run it. That bus is very low current to power it up so you will need the power cord.

Try reinstalled the card drivers.
