Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.

Trouble with Dvd player in Dell Inspiron 530

Find the small pin hole on DVD player and use a straightened paper clip to manually eject in case there is a stuck disc.

Use system restore to roll back your system. Look for a restore point longer than the three days.

I don't see a correlation between the two because the system should work even you don't have an optical drive (CD\DVD).

My Dell Inspiron 530 CD-RW will not open and is not even listed in the device manager or on the drive

Hello,

Sounds like the power cable isn't in the drive properly or the cable from your power source to the CD-ROM is defective.

Thanks,

Pat

I bought an inspiron 531 , about 18 months ago, it has a - PBDS DVD+RW DH-16WIS SCSI cdrom device, which has now burnt out, I have purched another burner but I find it is a SATA, is this compatable with my...

Do the cables from the old drive match up with the new one? If so and they connect then, yes its compatible.
Since you say it was listed as SCSI then yes SATA will work for you.

Dell Inspiron 530 CDRW/DVD problems

Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.

Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530

Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.
