My lenovo 3000 j series shows I have a cd-rom instead of the dvd burner I have, so I can't burn anything, how do I change the computer over so it'll see it's a dvd burner, and not a cd-rom ?


Go to device manager and check the DVD rom drive has been detected. Also check you have installed the drivers for the same.

My CD-rom will not work after inserting CD's or DVD will not rev-up what wrong and what should I Do I Have Inspiron 531????


1.The laser optical eye of the CD-ROM drive may be dirty, and needs cleaning.
If the optical eye is dirty, it won't read the information on the disk you install.

A) Computer on, Windows loaded, open the tray of the DVD-ROM drive. (Or DVD burner drive. Whichever drive you are referring to. DVD-R/RW)
Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power.
Use a can of compressed air fror computers, and spray air into the DVD-ROM drive.

The optical eye, is located on the bottom of the DVD-ROM drive. (Or burner drive)
The opening in the bottom of the tray, that comes out for your disk, is where you spray the air.

You won't be able to see the optical eye, so how will you know you are spraying the air at the correct place?

If you start at the front of the bottom of the DVD-ROM drive, and work your way towards the back, you will clean the optical eye. Spray across from side to side, and in rows, as you proceed towards the rear.

(Air will make it's way through, and reach the optical eye. The optical eye is not visible, as it can be harmful to the human eye when operating.
Laser.
When the tray is closed the optical eye is exposed. It is not exposed to where it can harm the computer user.

More information that may be helpful, in understanding where the optical eye is located,

Scroll down to the heading - CD-ROM drives. Also view the photos down on the right, and the animated GIF.

How a CD Player Works. Same principle for your DVD-ROM and DVD burner drives )


2.Make Windows reinstall the drivers.
This solution requires physically removing the flat ribbon cable from the back of the DVD-ROM/DVD burner drive, then reattaching it.

Software advice of Updating the drivers, Rollback the drivers, or downloading, and installing the drivers, doesn't always work, or doesn't work.

If the physical solutions I am providing here does not work, we will proceed to the software solutions if you wish. (Comment)

If the information above is correct, you have a SATA power cable, and a SATA Data cable.
(The Data cable transfers information from the optical drive, to the computer, and vice-versa)

The SATA power cable connector, is longer than the Data cable connector.
The power cable connector has 15 pins.

Cd burner not being recongnized


XP provides buring software for CD-ROMs

First check device manager to make sure CD-ROM is listed. If it is listed, try to use XP to write files to the CD.

Norton should not have affected the CD writing capabilities.

If you cannot write to the CD, use device manager to remove the CD-ROM, and then restart your computer. New Hardware utility will reinstall the required software

My burners do not show up as installed on my computer they just disappeared


Does your CD burner eject or does its light indicator come up? I just want to check to make sure there's power getting into the CD burner. And if it does:
1. Right click on the My Computer icon on the desktop and select Manage
2. Click on Device Manager on the left pane.
3. On the right pane, select DVD/CD ROM drives to expand it.
Do you see your CD drive listed in there? If yes, right click and select uninstall. Then restart your computer. This will reinstall the driver that came with Windows.

If this does not work, you need to update the driver.
