Does the drive appear in the BIOS ? If not recognized there, Windows won't see it. Do you have more than one DC or DVD drive? If so make sure the jumpers are set cs on both or master on one and slave on the other. The jumpers are on the back by the power and flat cable connections.

Windows can't install because it says it can't find a hard drive. Setup indicated both HD's are there and working. Installing Windows 2000 from Disc. Changed boot sequence so Rom boots first. Windows loads...


Check for sata drivers, if it is system is shipped with SATA hdd, need to install SATA Raid drivers during reinstallation .I believe that the dell system was originally shipped with Windows XP or Vista Operating system which has SATA drivers for SATA hdd. Since windows 2000 Operating system does not have SATA drivers hence unable to recognised hdd.

Both Drivers for CD Roms wont work for Dell Dem 2400


The two devices are both hooked to your secondary IDE channel. It could be that the IDE controller driver is corrupt or missing. Go to the Dell website, download and reinstall the CHIPSET driver, which includes the IDE channels. Then reboot. The driver page is here:)

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_CEL_2400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Failing that, verify that the drives are visible in the BIOS setup. When you restart and see the Dell splash screen, press F2 to go into the BIOS setup, come down to Drive Info and see if the model is reported for the two opticals. Perhaps it got disabled there, but not likely unless you were changing settings.

Another possibility is whether you removed and CD/DVD recording software recently (Sonic, Roxio, Nero) as these may have changed the registry entries related to your CD/DVD drives.

If nothing works, please post the specific error code reported by the Device Manager. Right click on each drive in the Device Manager and it should be listed in the device status box.

go into the system list, select the cd/rw drive and uninstall the driver. restart the the pc. the correct usb driver should then automatically be installed.

start, settings, control panel, system, hardware, cdrw, driver details, uninstall.

Bought DVD-Rs, 'Verbatim', 16x for Dell Dimension 4600, driver Samsung CDRW/DVD SM-352F Computer does not recognise the dvd Wrong purchase?


This drive is a CD writer only. Although it will read DVD's it will not write to them.

You will need to replace the drive with a DVD-RW drive.


Hope this helps.

Please remember to rate.

My Samsung CDRW/DVD SM352F plays commercial DVDs but will not recognise an inserted DVD/RW for recording picture files and shows properties as O bytes used space and O bytes free space. What is wrong?


the drive you are using is called a combo drive
CDRW- means CD WRITER
DVD- means DVD READER

DVD WRITER is not included in this combo...

only cd could be read and also written
but is case of DVD , it could only be read..

thankyou,.
