1 Answer

My Dell studio 1555 is DVD drive is not finalising DVD's. It appears to fall over on the finalising stage and says that an error has occured and that DVD may not then be useable - which it isn't. It plays DVD's ok and also will burn to CD's. It has a TSSTcorp DVD +-RW TS-T633CATA drive and runs windows 7. PLease help. Have had the machoine for 15 months but have never tried to burn to DVD's so this may have been an issue since purchase in Dec 09

There may be a firmware issue with the drive. I would go to and download the latest firmware for your particular drive and OS.
Hope that helps.

Light off on the charger

Either your laptop charger is dead or your laptop dc jack is loose. Try use a spare laptop ac adapter to examine it. If it will work well, that indicates you need a new charger, if it appears the same situation, you should repair your laptop dc jack. If you don't have a spare charger, just get one from the following e-shop:

Dell studio 1555 doesn't read DVD or CD , when I insert CD / DVD it looks like it is reading the media but when I click on Drive icon, it ejects the media.

First reinstall the DVD driver to see if the DVD drive works.
If not then -
Try removing the DVD drive and inserting it back to make sure it properly connected then boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS and see it the DVD drive is detected, if the DVD drive is not detected then the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

unfortunetly sometimes with a fall of that nature you could have very possibly damaged the actual hard drive which if that is the case would require replacement of the drive.
