Hi im wesley. open your pc and make sure the cable is not damaged that goes to the cd drive if its fine take the drive out open it up and inside you will see a little glass head in the drive its blue inthe middle take and ear bud and gently clean it but be very carefull its very fragile and will brake with the ease if you touch it to hard because there is a little spring under it suspending it and if it brakes you will have to replace the hole thing. after cleaning it it should work as the head might of just gotten dirty and wouldnt read. but if it still doesnt work its packed up and you need a new one.

How do you burn a CD with this type computer?


Dell GX260's did not always come with a CD writer. Check the plastic on the front of the tray and see if it says CD ROM. That designation is a CD player only.
If you have a burner the label will indicate it.
If you have a burner, download CDXP, a free CD burner utility. This is a simple to use software utility to burn CD's.
When it loads you see two windows. the top window is your computer hard drive, the bottom is the CD drive. You copy files to the bottom window and select "burn" to write the files to disk.

Please rate this post if it helps.

I have a TEAC CD 224E cd rom drive in my media player. I can play, sync, and rip cd's. But I can't burn. What do I do to be able to burn onto cds?


This drive is not a CD writer. It is plain and simple CD reader. Hence it will not write/burn a CD.

Reinstall the DVD/CD drive software: Control Panel - System - Device Manager ... find the DVD/CD drive and right-click to remove or reinstall. Then, restart your PC. Good luck.

Cd burning drive


ARE YOU SURE THATS A CD WRITER NOT JUST A CD ROM. IF ITS A CD WRITER AND YOU ARE USING THE OS AS WINDOWS XP....JUST TRY SENDING THE FILE DIRECTLY TO THE BLANK CD IN THE DRIVE...IF IT BURNS THE CD WRITER IS OK AND THE APPLICATION (NERO OR WATEVER) YOU ARE USING TO BURN THE CD REQUIRES TO BE REINSTALLED
