Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

The liteon dvdrw will not burn a DVD


Perhaps you should reinstall the Sonic stuff, in case it was affected since the virus cleanup.  If the OS had some of its components quarantined from virus contamination, you are probably stuck reinstalling the OS...though of course you can search the web (and not least Microsoft.com if that's the sort of OS you use) for healing 'media detection' issues (w.r.t. your particular OS.)

Dvd rw wont work


From the device manager, delete the entry for the DVRW and then reboot or rescan for defvices. You might also check LiteOn's web site for a newer driver. If no luck, see if you can install it in another PC. If no luck there, the unit is just flaky and should be replaced.

Dvd rw drive not reading discs (DVD and CD)


Hi,
That sound to me like a defective dvdrw because it can't read the dvd an try to re read and re read and lock the computer until you take it out.

Solution:

Tools:
+ Small screwdriver
-- Small screwdriver

Buy a new or used dvdrw for laptop, first take out the laptop battery. Locate the two screws at bottom of your laptop, take them out, whit a paper clip open the dvdrw from a small hole in front of it, pull the defective dvdrw out, if the front plastic face plate is diferent from yours you can change them using a small - screwdriver (be carefull). If you dvdrw have a smalls canals at sides in your defective dvdrw take them out and put them in the new one two, Install the new dvdrw by slowly pushing in to the dvdrw hole until it take its place, put the two screw drivers back + the battery and you shuold be on your way. Let us know. Obed
