Power off computer.

Take out power socket for burner drive

Make sure SATA/IDE cable is properly inserted. Clean them if they are dusty.

After powering up, make sure DVD driver is powered by opening the tray

Go in BIOS menu and see if it can detect DVD Rom there.

IF not,then you may have to check for Master/Slave config if you changed any hardware configuration recently.

COMPUTER NOT READING IT, NOT BEING RECOGNIZED BY COMPUTER


Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

Driver won't work


Are you saying the bios detects the drive, but when you go to My Computer you cant see the drive listed? If so, Right click on My computer and in the menu select 'manage', In the Computer management window select removable media and activate the drive. It will then show in My computer, and be able to read/write cd's/dvd/s. If this does NOT work, then update the firmware for the drive. A lot of times when you buy a new drive, the firmware on it is out of date and the manufacturer has a new firmware out for it to fix computability issues with the collage of hardware thats out there.
