Question about NEC NR 7900A (NR7900) CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

My CD ROM ONLY plays burned cds. (won't read regular music cds)

This has been a problem for quite a while..I thought it was a hardware problem so I got another _NEC NR-7900A drive from another Dimension 2200, just like mine. I'm pretty computer savvy, so it was no problem to install. In a nutshell.. my problem is that my _NEC NR-7900A is ONLY playing burned cds, or is reading blank cds..the actual re-writer works.. I just cannot put in a regular music cd..because its not reading them. All I want is to be able to rip them to my HD. I'm not to familiar with firmware but i looked on the microsoft site, and their appears to be no firmware upgrade for it. I've tried absolutely everything and i cannot figure this out. Also this is the first time i've ever asked for advice about my PC on any internet forums. Any help would be highly appreciated.

My cd rom won't detect blank cds

Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.

Mike @ Compurepair.

My cd rom drive on my emachines wont burn any audio cds but it plays audio cds. when i go to burn a cd it says connect a burner. but my burner is built in to the drive that plays the cds

Could be a missing driver file. Or the plug between the 2 could be undone internally. Or the "Properties" settings could be unchecked.

I had this same problem w/ mine. Took me 4 months to figure it out. Got it working again but couldnt play audio cds, only dvds.

Go under control panel to hardware & find out exactly the name of the maker of the drive. It should be in there.
Search that maker ie ~ Philips CD Rom with Sonic DLA burning software.

I got pretty lucky finding info specifically for EMachine. It's a generic computer so shouldnt have any problem finding info about the drive & the software. Perhaps even look for Updates. This could help also.

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
