You need to enable sata in the bios and then restart. Then go to asus and type in your motherboard model number and find the driver for video components and get the driver for the dvd player

What you need to do here is to make sure that your DVD/RW is connected properly on to your motherboard , because that firmware is useless because you cannot update it since your computer is not detecting it..

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

    if that's the case this DVD/RW can be bad that's why its not even detected by your computer and there's no way you can update the firmware of it if its not detected...better have it replace.

    Hope that helps.......

That SATA connector is probably disabled in the BIOS. Press [Del] when your computer boots to go into setup. Poke around there should be an option, most likely on the advanced page, to turn off certain SATA ports. Make sure they are all enabled then pres F10 to save and exit. Reboot windows and hopefully it will find the drive.

Otherwise your SATA controller drivers may not be installed or working. Download the newest chipset and IDE drivers from Asus or VIA.

    FYI



    Ronnieh49: Optical drives do not need drivers, the controller they plug into need them.



    Ginko: SATA drives don't use slave/master jumpers.



  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly Aug 20, 2008

    Have you checked your BIOS setup?



    It could also help to check your system in Safe Mode to see if the drive is detected there, you need to press F8 after the ASUS POST screen but before Windows starts. If it is then there may be a driver issue that is causing it to be invisible to Windows in normal mode.

Check the slave / master jumper settings, they meay be clashing in bios.
Try plugging to the other SATA port.

    Sata disk drives do not require any driver, check instead the solution proposed by the Machine.
    If sata channel was disabled from bios, reward the machine by accepting his solution.
    Do not forget to save changes after modifying bios values.

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.........

Memorex DVD-RW (4X 4.7GB) disks keep closing record sessions and cuts off at about 1:39 minutes.


Hi. Sounds like you are maxing out your recording space on your disc.1:39 sounds like the capacity of a single layer DVD-RW. You can confirm this by putting the disc into a computer and checking the "properties" of the DVD. Go into "My computer" [ldouble click], highlight DVD drive [rightclick] then select "properties"[left click]. the pie chart will show you graphically space remainig on the disc

I have the same issue of "No Disk" error on LG RC797T DVD Rec.


There are many reasons for the message you receive. Essentially it is a generic message that indicates that the disc inside the unit is unreadable. This can be because the disk is defective, the optics are defective or the spindle motor is defective. There have been cases where I have found the controlling ICs to be defective. The most common cause is a dirty lens on the optics. Cleaning this plastic lens using a cotton swab and alcohol often resolves the problem. This may not be the case here. A good test is to attempt to play a music CD. If the CD plays OK but a DVD does not, it indicates that the controling circuitry and the spindle motor are likely to be OK and that the optics are failing.

Try cleaning the lens and report the results here.

Will not accept DVD RW disks except the LG variety also does not appear to like other +R's either.


After reading the manual about ten times realised that this particular machine will only accept -R, or -RW's. We've been trying to work with +R and +RW's ... On one occasion after formatting the disk on a computer (+RW) placed it in machine .. It rejected it... but would not eject it and in consequence we had to literally dismantle the machine to physically remove the disk!!!!

Thanks for your time!

Replace the dvd-rw drive in a sanyo drw500 with new betterproduct


IF u are only talking abt the Drive only then yes u can get a better one now.
From what u had stated I prsume tht it is in an external bay which has USB or firewire compatibilty , Right?
If this is the case, then U can get a better drive for this, any tyoe will do as long as it is a DVD RW drive.
The one u have currently is a very old one which has very limited capability like recording to DVD-ROM cd's, it can only write DVD+ROM types....
Now u can find Drives which supports + / - type dvd discs and ROM's and also RAM Drives.
Just do a google search or I can state what I uses. I Use
1 - Sony DVD RW DRU-845S
2. TDK DVDRW 1616N
These are the best in it's region when they were released, I believe there are better ones now.
Cheers

Machine stuck on hello...pressed power & stop to no avail


Hi. The most common culprit for this HELLO message issue is a faulty DVD-RW drive. To make sure that this is the case, you will need to replace the DVD-RW drive with another DVD, DVD-RW, or another spare hard drive in it's place to make sure the unit powers on and gets past the Hello message. Just make sure the replacement is configured correctly via the master/slave jumper on the back. If this does nothing to help, then the fault could reside in the motherboard or hard drive. You can look at this post where I helped out a user with spare parts http://www.fixya.com/support/t1195654-drc8030n_motherboard
