Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am trying to connect a dvd wrier to my windows xp intel D. it worked the first time ,but now it wont recognise the usb port.some other things work ....camera,printer ,but not the writer or any storage devices.my computer skills are low so i cant solve it.


Answers :

Try disconnecting all usb devices and unplug the computer for 10 minutes, also unplug the dvd drive and make sure its not getting power for atleast 10 minutes.

Then connect only the dvd drive to your computer and power it on, also keyboard and mouse if they are on usb.

turn the computer on and see if everything works. if not then restart the computer. If they still don't work then turn off the computer and the dvd drive, turn on the computer and ones you are in desktop and everything has started then turn on the dvd drive.

is it working?

I guess you are talking about an external DVD RW.

\015\012If the DVD writer that you are connecting is an external USB DVD RW , then try first the following:

First test the storage devices on a different computer, to ensure they work.

If different USB devices are working, then USB shpuld be OK, but have a\015\012look on control panel/hardware devices the same, if you find a yellow\015\012mark in there , then there is a problem with USB.

If you are using an external USB hub, removed. There are devices like external storage unit that have a bigger power draw from USB, If many devices are connected to same hub, storage devices may not work.

If the Storage unit is powered through USB, and you are using a laptop, try connecting the
Unplug power cord , then it can still be a power draw on USB problem. In that case you will have two USB cords, one for power and one for data. Test the storage unit using an external power adapter (the proper one) , or try connecting the USB cord for power to a different computer (possibly a PC) while connecting the data USB to the computer you want to use.

Try also unplugging all usb devices, unplugging computer power cord, and removing battery if you are using a laptop. Wait about 30 mins and plug back computer, connecting only the DVD unit. That can fix problem related to electrostatic charges on USB.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks.
