My disk is in the cd/dvd and it wont eject the cd/dvd is less than a year old. why is it stuck?


Anonyomous,
You should have a small pin hole on the front of the face of the cd/dvd drive that you could put a small paper clip in and eject the cdrom drive. Make sure the computer is off before sticking the the paper clip in the drive.
Thank You,

Tip

Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Eject the CD/DVD Drive


Create a Shortcut to Eject the CD/DVD Drive
Right-click on the desktop or elsewhere and choose New \ Shortcut.
In the location box, put the full path to the nircmd.exe file that you downloaded, and append the "cdrom open" command to the end of it, adjusting the drive letter to match your disc drive:
"C:\path\to\nircmd.exe" cdrom open D:
Note the location of the quotes.. if you are using a path with spaces in it, you need to make sure the quotes are only around the path to the executable, and the arguments should be placed after the quote.
Give the shortcut a meaningful name, like Eject CD or something like that, and you'll have a new icon (read below on how to use the cd-rom icon as shown)
Create a Shortcut to Close the CD/DVD Drive
You can follow the same exact instructions as above, but instead of "cdrom open" just substitute "cdrom close".
Assign a Hotkey to the Shortcut
Now that we have a shortcut, we can assign a hotkey to the shortcut by right-clicking on the icon and choosing Properties. On the Shortcut tab you'll see a place to assign the Shortcut key:

I don't know how to download cd's and dvd's on dell EL-1210-09


What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay is not active.

Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?

If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software (later versions of Window Media Player will burn).

Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.

If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.

The cd/dvd tray does not open.what is the problem and how do i rectify this?


1) use a paperclip to "force" it open by opening the clip, then inserting one end into the little hole and pressing...
2) while it's coming out, see if the faceplate binds on anything
3) if it's not binding, it's probably the drive motor. Pick up a replacement internal DVD-RW and swap it out...it's very easy!

Quick instructions on how to swap out a CDROM/DVD drive:
1) Turn off the machine
2) Take off the cover
3) Disconnect the power connector and the data ribbon cable from the CDROM drive
4) Undo the screws (or tabs) holding the CDROM in place
5) Slide the drive out the front
6) Slide the replacement unit back into place, after confirming the jumper placement for standalone/slave/etc.
7) Put the screws back in (or the tabs click in place)
8) Plug in the cables, being sure to line it up correctly
9) Put the cover back on and get it going!

Can't copy dvd or cd , the cd rom drive would not recognize any cd's


it's possible that the CDROM drive is bad. Since it's an IDE device, it would be easy to replace. Simply get another DVD-RW device (might as well upgrade!) and open the case. Needless to say, you want the machine off for this process.

Open the case, disconnect the power and data cables from the back of the CDROM. Unscrew the holding screws and slide out the drive. Replace the drive with the DVD-RW, line it up and replace the screws. Then connect the data and power cables...be careful with the data cable to make sure that you don't "miss" a row of pins.

Put the case back together and turn on the machine. XP should automatically recognize the drive.

Dvd-cdrom plays music-cd.Not dvd-cd :No Valide Drive/Disc Found


Simply change the ROM to DVD RW drive since this is an old PC and now days nobody uses a dvd rom but a dvd writer. It will be worth it since it can do all the functions and is also more hardy........sodeep
