Hello franchusyl
If possible , test it on another computer . If it does not work , it's defective and you will have to replace it if out of warranty .
Best regards ,

I have a Dell Dimension E510 that has a Phillips DVD+RW DVD8801. Windows Media Player will not recognize my burner?


You can solve this problem by updating your driver firmware, dell even recommends it. i have posted a link to the appropriate dell page with the new firmware below. you may also have to restart your computer and/or re-install windows media player for this fix, but update the firmware first. I hope i was helpful.

Can i install a philips dvd8801 in my dell dimension 4600? if so, what do i need to download and/or install for it to function?


Yes, you can install it. The drive is a standard size and will fit the drive bay in your Dell. You'll just need to set the master/slave jumper to whichever your new drive will be. If you're just replacing the optical drive, or it's connected to the first plug on the data cable from the motherboard, set the jumper to master (MA). If you're installing this as a slave, connected to the middle plug on the data cable, set the jumper to slave (SL).This drive comes standard in some Dell systems and they have this user's guide which shows the connections.

You don't need anything for Windows to be able to use the drive. It's seen as a standard drive type and Windows will work with it straight away. But you'll need some kind of burning software to make CDs or DVDs. Windows does have built-in burning capability but it's pretty limited. A good free disc burning application is CDBurnerXP. There are commercial programs like Nero as well. If you want to make DVDs that you intend to play in a regular DVD player, or want to make DVDs with menus and other features like the commercial releases, you need DVD authoring software. The commercial programs with all the bells and whistles are pretty costly. DVDStyler is a free program that offers a lot of functions.

Have fun, and thanks for using Fixya!

Phillips dvd+rw dvd8701 in my dell not working


How is it not working? CD drives do not have a very long life span and they often will quit working after some time. You more than likely need to get a new drive to replace the broken one - to ensure that your new drive lasts longer be sure to clean it often and keep the area around your computer fairly clean.
Dust is the biggest killer of computers and computer parts.

Would like to upgrade Dell Inspiron 1300 c.d drive


Is your dvd rom drive a RW drive? if not, you need to buy a RW-dvd rom drive to be able to RW dvds or cds.

If you already have a RW DVD Rom drive, you need to have a burning application (ex. nero burning rom). You can check on the internet and download a freeware and install it on your machine.

Philps DVD/RW DVD8801 will not let me burn cds


First thing to do is go to the manufacturers website or dell.com/support if it is an OEM drive
download the driver for it. Make sure you save it and not run it now what you want to do is follow these steps in uninstalling the old driver and installing the new one

Go to Start Button
Click control panel
System and maintenance
System
then in the left pane you should see an option for device manager go inside there expand the category for cd/dvd/rw drives
right-click on the drive and click uninstall
then you will want to install the freshly downloaded driver and then reboot

a few things you can get back to me on :

-what program do you use to try to burn?
-what OS are you running?

If these steps seem difficult let me know and i will give you a screenshot walk through. I need to know the OS for that . let me know if this helps
