Re: instructions on how to operate my HP DVD writer...
If you use Windows Media Player as your Music Player, then simply open Media Player, insert your blank CD and then on the side of the window there should be a tab called 'Copy yo CD or Device', Click on this. To put the songs you want on the CD, go to the drop down menu on the 'Items to copy' side and look for "All Music". There will be a small box on the side next to a song name and click on it to check the song if you wish to add it, or uncheck it for the song not to be added. A CD will on average fit about 20 songs so i would aim for this for each CD. Once you have selected your songs click the 'copy' button, which has a 'record' symbol beside it and your done.
Hope this helps you

not much you can do... the lens is probably scratched and, at this point, it would probably cost less to just replace the DVD writer. And it doesn't even have to be the same make and model you have in your Dell. It can be any dvd writer that has the same connection type as yours.
You just need to simply plug the one end (USB Type B) of the USB cable to the external DVD writer then plug the other end (USB Type A) to your notebook. Then, let your Operating System to automatically install the driver for your DVD writer. Let me know if this works.
Power on your system, Press F2 on Dell logo. This would take you to system BIOS. Ensure that USB controller is ON, and USB emulation is also set to ON. Save settings and Exit. System would reboot now. Press F12 on Dell logo, and select USB ROM as the boot device. This should boot your computer through your External drive. If it still doesnt work, try switching to a different USB port. If none of these steps work, it may be a problem with the boot sector on your External drive.
You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!
