20 Most Recent AOpen DUW1616/ARR DVD RW Dual Layer Burner Questions & Answers

Can you hear the motor running when you press the eject button? If yes then you need to change the drive belt.
Open the RW Drive's cover and locate a belt, which connects the two pulleys, from motor to tray gear. It is usually at the front below the tray. Replace this belt and your trouble will be gone.
If there is no belt inside, then you can apply some grease on the gearing.
This is my personal repair procedure and works always.
However, if the motor is not running the problem cannot be repaired at home.
If you cannot follow my instructions, then take it to the service center for the technician to perform repairs. Its low cost and quick.
Remember: dismantling the drive will void the warranty.
Thank you.

Look on the front of the tray where the eject button is There should be a small round hole, this is for ejecting a stuck disk. Just open out a paper clip and insert in to the hole and press until the tray opens.

Can't you just push an opened out paper clip in to the eject hole on the front of the tray cover. It should be just above the eject button.

Have you checked how the drive is listed in device manager? You may need to find the Firmware for your model of drive and Flash it. This usually isn't as hard or scary as it sounds. :)

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.

If it is a combo drive then you cannot burn DVD's with it.
A combo drive can burn CD's and play DVD's

If it is a burner, then install Nero and burn DVD's with that. But as above, if it says it's a COMBO drive, then it can't.

Is there a floppy disk in the A: drive? That "port" is usually reserved for a floppy disk, either 3.5 or 5.25in. You probably need to disable the floppy drive in the BIOS.

I am assuming that you are replacing or installing a new mobo. You need to read the manual to see if it has an option for speakers, most do. You need to look the details for the "front panel" where you connect wires for power, hard disk lights etc.
