Where do i insert a disk in a dall latitude E7440?

It doesn't have a CDRW drive. Only an optional smart card reader slot.

You'll have to buy an external USB DVDRW or CDRW drive.

Dvdrw drive for acer vista computer is missing how do i fix it?

Sometimes your CD/DVD drive is hidden by default if it's empty. There is a setting for that. If you have a disk in there and the drive is not showing up then you should check the power and sata or ide cables to the drive inside the case. If they are connected properly, then you need to replace the drive.

My nephew has a dell inspiron 1525 & the college computer center told him his dvdrw is broken. What dvdrw will work in it

Any CD/DVD-writer drive will work -- just remove the face-plate and mounting-brackets from the "dead" drive, and connect those parts to the "new" drive.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help

Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

Have problem with computer allowing me to copy to dvd-rw or cd-rw. I can play both, but can not copy to discs. I have windows xp professional version 2002 service pack 2

Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail( Specify your CD-ROM / DVD Drive more)

If you cant burn DVDRW or CDRW it is likely that your Drive does not support burning these Formats. You can check on your drive at the front; it should tell you what it supports.

Another solution could be that you are not using the correct software to burn your DVDRW/CDRW. I recommend using: Nero

Kind Regards,

Install question

Take the side of the case.
You should be able to get to the back of the slot where you want to install the CDRW.
Just push the bezel in the middle and it shoudl bend releasing the plastic catches securing it in the slot.
It is plastic and you are going to throw it in the garbage so dont worry about pushing to hard.
Let me know if this helps.
