My dvdrom can't read dvd's only cd's what might be the problem?


Would try to update the driver by right clicking on my computer and select manage to get to the device driver.Once the device driver is open double click on dvd/cd roms .It should show what cd/dvd devices are installed.If you right click on that there should be an option to update driver. If updating the driver does not work it's possible that there is a physical problem with the dvd rom.

I am trying to reinstall operating system but do not read the dvd's after creating the partition


There are things we need to isolate.

Try first to test the DVD ROM using a Drivers Utility CD came with your computer.

Try booting to this CD to check if the DVD ROM still works.

Try to run but not install the OSCD to a different computer, just to check if the OSCD is readable.

If your DVDROM reads media try again the installation of OS booting to DVD ROM thru F12.
But before that I would like to know if your laptop has more than 1GB RAM? If yes try installing OS again with 1GB RAM installed. You need to remove the other RAM.

Thanks!

Can not boot dell 6650 from external dvd


Have you checked boot device options....from BIOS
Use F9 during boot to goto ROM-BIOS and change Boot device option to CDROM/DVDROM.
Insert Boot media or DVD-Win2003, to DVD-ROM device..
reboot Server, try now
If still issue.. Check to boot Server using some other media..
if other cd media works, then it could be DVD-Win2003 faulty, otherwise download firmware for CD/DVDROM and upgrade it and check if DVDROM works, otherwise you have to contact Dell Support..

Does Dell PowerEdge 4600 Server support DVD ROM


I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR


According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.
