Answers :

The drive itself must actually be a DVD player. There is usually room for an other player to be installed including the one you already have. Just remember to make the jumper settings (on rear of drive) one master and one slave. You will also need software to use DVD on your computer...You can download that free from the internet. good luck my friend..leave a rating please...hope this helped

I own a 1 year old Dell Studio 1535. Its original battery died, so I purchased a generic one online. When I turned on the laptop with the battery only (not plugged in), it said battery not recognized,but still the laptop continued to run. The battery was only 47% full. When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge? Or is it impossible to charge a generic battery with an original dell adapter?
