Dvd/cd combo drive not working

I recently had to have my mother board and some other parts replaced in my system now after getting it back when i try and burn a dvd or just simply use my combo(it won't even read a disk that i put in,it actually doesn't even show that i have a disk in) the light flashes on the face of the drive but it keeps telling me drive not ready when i try and just simply burn an audio cd, did they mess something up or is it something i have to do? It was working fine before they put the new parts in!

If everything is hooked up right, I would check for drivers. Could be that you need a new burner.

First I would call the company that did the work
I would hope they would stand behind what they have or have not done
With what you are saying my first thought would be to open up the computer and make sure the IDE cables from the DVD drive are connected, first to the drive, then to th motherboard

CD ROM DETECTION PROBLEM


LEAVE YOU hard drive on primary master port on your main board set as master or single drive ( IF YOU HAVE A STATA HARD DRIVE THEN DONT WORRY ABOUT THAT PART)

SET YOUR FIRST DRIVE AS MASTER
SET THE SECOND AS SECONDARY
use the jumber in the back of the drive to set them the propper setting is labeled on the drive it self

Connect them to the secondary port on your motherboard
so you should have

HARD DRIVE - MASTER OR SINGLE *jumper settiing* connected to the primary port on your main board

DRIVE 1 = MASTER *jumper settiing*
DRIVE 2 = SLAVE *jumpersetting*
connected to the secondary port on your mother board

IF YOU HAVE A SATA HARD DRIVE FORGET THE PARTS ABOUT HARD DRIVES ABOVE
i assumed you had a IDE hard drive

JUST USE THE SETTINGS FOR THE DRIVES and it should work :)

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.

Had some problem with connecting the DVD drive to the PC


Depend on what you have in your system already. If your are replacing and existing drive simply remove it, and replace on the same IDE cable making sure the jumper is set to slave. Assuming you have one drive to the 0-IDE connector and the other connector is is to existing CD and this new drive is to be a second one. You will need another IDE ribbon cable. Set the drive to Master- connect the cale. position and fix the drive and plug the other end on the cable to the second IDE connector [Drive 01] See you mother board manual - connected a spere power connector.
