From what I have found, that system should come with a DVD-RW drive by default.

  1. Check device manager, see if the drive is detected by Windows as a DVD type drive.
  2. If the drive is ID'd as a DVD drive, but will not browse a DVD movie in MY COMPUTER then there is a failure of the DVD optics of the drive and it needs to be replaced.
  3. If you can browse a DVD, but not play one, then you most likely need a DVD codec installed to read DVDs. Search google for the K-Lite Codec pack.
  4. If you are trying to burn to DVD media, ensure you have a DVD buring software installed as XP has no native DVD burn capability.

My Windows XP Media Center computer can't recognize my CDs, DVDs, or PC games. It's not that the CD won't go in, its just that my computer doesn't know it exists. I checked the inside and all the chords...


unplug it (data cable), start the computer, when loaded to windows shut down again and plug the drive back in. Also try a different port if you can. Drives don't last forever and they are very cheap so if you can't get it to work get a new one.

My computer will not reconize my sansa ipod


I had the same problem. But then I figured it out. If you are using Windows Media Player, and it doesn't reconize it, then the VERSION does not reconize it.
The other computers might have a different version.
My computer has a version 10 and it works. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx and download a different version. (There is no harm or virus)
