Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook ?

Ok my inspiron 1300 dvdrw drive isnt....

\015 Working. I dont know if its a plug in play or if it came with software. But anyhow My inspiron isnt registrying the drive. I tried to find download software but couldnt find any. The dvdrw drive turns on when the computer turns on but on the my computer section the cd drive icon is there but when I click on it it says insert cd. But now its a TS-632D ver.3. What shall I do? I had a solution on here but wasnt a step by step processes so that I dont delete any files which will corrupt my laptop. Someone help........\015

Hah. last time i had this happen it was hardware failure on the cd/dvd drive... i hope this isnt the case!
\015\012these drives always have satisfactory drivers in windows itself. in your device manager, (control panel--> system-- hardware tab--device manager), does it show your drive in the right place? or is it below in the yellow question mark category indicating that there's a problem?

Burning I have an Acer Aspire 1640Z. CD burning is fine but when a blank DVD disk is put into the drive it isnt recognised as blank, (says 0 bytes for free and used space). I cant seem to work out why. The side of the drive says 'DVD+Rewritable' so unless i am missing something i assume it can burn to DVDs?

It maybe because the drive is a +R burner and you are putting a -R disc in. That is the usual case. The media type can be found on the inner circle of the disc.\015\012\015\012Hope that helps. ... Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook
