My Cd/DVD burner has disappeared I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and it still doesn't show up the tray opens the light comes on but it's not usable or found anywhere I have an HP...


Try this:

I have to ask, after deleting the upper & lower filters did you reboot the PC?

If so try this:
Go to:
Start>(right click on Computer)left click on Manage.
Left click on Device Manager
Locate your DVD/CD-Rom drives.
Right Click on the DVD/CD Rom-drive> uninstall Now reboot the PC.

If the drive does not come back in Computer> devices with removeable storage go back to Device Manager (Start>right click computer>Device Manager) to see if you can see DVD/CD Rom-drive.If you dont see the drive in this location then it sounds as if your DVD/CDRom-drive is no longer working and you will have to replace it.

Good luck!

Can my CD-RW/DVD Rom Drive, model # GCC4320B be replaced with a hp 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer, dvd 1270i . I bought this unit today, but the connections don't match up? I truely appreciate your time and...


This model DVD/CD writer is a SATA drive and unless your motherboard has a SATA connector then you have a slight problem. You will need to purchase a SATA controller and install it into your PCI expansion slot, then connect your new DVD/CD drive to this SATA controller. You will also need a SATA adapter power cable converter which plugs into the 4 pin power connector.

DVD drive does not show up in Computer drive list


Sounds like a cable or CD hardware issue. If you are comfortable taking apart the laptop yourself, disconnect /reconnect the cable or replace the CD cable. It's hard to update the driver if the system doesn't see the drive. Or, you could replace the drive. It's really hard to know which is the problem without testing.

Install sound card and I lose the CD/DVD drive.


You may need updated drivers. Try downloading the latest drivers for your soundcard. If you are using Windows Vista make sure you download the vista drivers as most Windows XP drivers will not work with Vista. Hope this helps.

Drive light gets stuck on at reboot


Hi,
Try swapping the Jumper block ( Small plastic pin connector ) on The Back Of the DVD Drive. If using both Hard-Drive And DVD Drive on the Same IDE Cable. The DVD Should be set as Master And Hard-Drive As Slave, Or Vice versa.
Failing This, put The Hard Drive On Primary IDE Channel, And DVD On Secondary Channel.
These suggestions, have been made as it appears from your problem listed, that the 2 drives Are Conflicting with each Other.
Finally, is to try a different 4 pin ( Molex ) power cable to either device/Drive. if you have a single rail Power supply unit. the 2 units sharing a joint power cable, may be draining the PSU.

Hope this helps.

External USB DVD-RW


Hi Nick,
this may be a driver conflict issue, either with your factory fitted drive.
try going into system/device manager and see if its in there, click remove or uninstall, reboot and plug the drive in again, go through the add new hardware wizard if need be.
the other suggestion, is to remove all USB devices from The device manager, reboot and the system will re-install the USB port drivers.

Try uninstalling the reinstalling your drive, if after you do this you still have this issue try using the disks in another burner to see if they can read it, typicly this problem is due to two things . Either your drivers are out of date or you are using cheapie disks
