It may be a driver problem. try updating the drivers. go through your control panel to device manager and find your dvd/cd rom device. right click and click update drivers. also sometime to shutdown, remove the device, restart. load windows shutdown and reinstall the device again then once again restart. your system will then have unrecognized the found new device and updated your drivers automaticly.

I have purchased an external DVD/CD writwr & rewriter. I installed the nero bundled with it. I cannot get it to burn. I do not have a high speed usb pot on my vaio s150. Could this be the problem?


Yes that could be a problem but the only net effect is a slower speed. When you plug in the Burner does your computer detect it? Does it come up on My Computer? if it does try to do a burn using the Windows XP utility. When you open a folder you should have an option to click on write files to CD. If that works then unistall and reinstall the Nero

My computer is a Dell Dimension 2400. Installed ASUS DVD RW drive in December 2007. It seemed to work just after installation but now it does not work. I get a Windows Media Player Error Message...


But can you still use the DVDRW right? the only problem here is you cannot use media player because of the error message? Because if the DVDRW still read and write so there's no problem with it the problem is with the windows media player, Try using a different media player like VLC.

Hope that helps.........

Upon turning on our Masterlink, it read "LOAD OS".


if you are computer savy, you can disassemble the masterlink and test the cd drive in another computer. if it works, check the power connector to the cd drive. switch it with the hd connector to see if it fires up.


keep use posted.

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.

Hi,
you should,nt have to re-format or setup xp again.
1:) check the computer for viruses. viruses-trojans et,c malicious software can lock off drives.
2:) go into start/control panel/system/device manager.
click on cd/dvd drive if it,s there, uninstall it. restart the computer, you should then get a message new hardware found.
install drivers as necessary.
3:) check the drives cables. the 4 pin molex connecter ( plastic block ) with 1 red 1 yellow 2 blacks, to ensure it,s connected correctly. or try an alternative one if available.
Also check the 40-80 pin ide cable.
4:) try a secondary cable ( 40 pin ) on the secondary connector from the motherboard ( if not in use ) set drive as a master.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

XP home should automatically detect and install the device.

**** Please Do-Not-Rate This Post, Until Your problem Has Been Resolved ****

There are a few concerns here:- if the drive has been virused, it may have been instructed to shut-down or corrupted the Drives Logical Board.

If you go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager.
See if your drive is recognised There, DVD/CD Rom Drives.
If it isn,t Click the small screen icon, top of page " Scan for hardware Changes " this should detect the drive if it,s recognisable by the system.

If it is, right click/Properties. And see if the device has any conflicts ( usually noticed by a yellow Triangle/exclamation Mark. Or drivers not installed.

Failing this, you can go into the systems Bios Screen. F2 at bootup. and see if the device is visible in there. And whether it,s enabled.

If none of this works, please mail back here.

If you rate this solution, without fixing your problem. i may be reluctant to assist you further.

Mike @ cmpurepair.
