Dell Inspiron 1420 is not able to read empty cds or DVDS. My I go to properties it shows empty space as 0. When I try to burn a Cd it says " Insert a blank CD"


Stephen buddy, we need to talk. I do NOT understand anything you are trying to describe. Okay, so you installed a FRESH Operating System and now it is NOT recognizing your DVD-rom, right? Okay, restart the computer and let Windows load up fully. Check Control Panel and check your list of Devices. Sometimes, when you re-install and O.S., you may have to update the firmware or drivers for certain devices.

Cd drive cannot read or respond


Unfortunatly it is likely a bad drive, a loose internal connection, or a dieing motherboard. Go to dell.com and ensure that all your chipset drivers are up to date, if that doesn't fix it you will likely have to either RMA or, if it is out of warranty, take it to a repair shop.

I can not wach the DVD..it says that I have to install the compatible decoder..How can I do that?


Hi sabi1609,

If you cant watch a DVD movie you need to install a codec pack on your computer so that you can view the movie on your system. Click here to download. Enjoy watching.

Rate me if this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

Dell Inspiron 1420 will no longer boot


you need to enter setup by tapping one of the f keys or the delete key. i'm not sure which it is for this model. when you enter the bios setup change the boot order to boot to the dvd first. hit f10 and save the change then reboot with your install disk in the drive. it should start installing.
