Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My computer is a Dell Dimension 2400. Installed ASUS DVD RW drive in December 2007. It seemed to work just after installation but now it does not work. I get a Windows Media Player Error Message COOD11B1. I checked Windows Update and the software is uptodate. Dell Customer Service checked their hardware and advised me that their hardware is functioning properly. Dell suggested my contacting the DVD drive manufacturer, ASUS.

To play DVDs in Windows Media Player you need a MPEG-2 decoder that is capable of decoding DVD video and is also compatible with WMP. The K-Lite Codec Pack contains a compatible decoder for Windows. So you need to download codec packs and import the codec to your Windows Media Player. Or you could try some other players that can play DVD disc and files such as Leawo Blu-ray Player

But can you still use the DVDRW right? the only problem here is you cannot use media player because of the error message? Because if the DVDRW still read and write so there's no problem with it the problem is with the windows media player, Try using a different media player like VLC.

Hope that helps.........

I want to know if I would have a problem if I removed the Roxio cd player burner program from my computer that Dell installed? I use windows media player.


You shouldn't. You may not be able to burn data to a dvd-rw if you do because windows doesn't support it, but you can always install a free program like imgburn to do that task. There might also be a rare chance your upper/lower filters will block the drive from reading, but there are tutorials online to fix it if that were to happen.

I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.

CD burner


Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
