Dvd Player Stops Working When Connect External Hard Disk


My dvd player stops working when i connect my external barracuda 7200. 12 hard disk?

Answer:- it could be that the drives have finished up with the same drive letter. Go to the control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management, you can change the drive letters in there.

Problem With External Hard Disk

I got problems with my external hard disk. This was happen yesterday. The system (windows xp) will freeze when every-time i plug the external hd. I don't know whats wrong. The day before yesterday, everything is so ok until i plug off, and then re-plug yesterday. I tried to restart the computer with the hard drive plugged in but just after the windows xp loading screen the computer freezes, when i remove the external hard drive windows xp continues and i plug it in again, i log on but the moment the log on tune plays windows freezes, i disconnect the external hard drive and windows resumes. What's worse? Whenever windows loads and everything is ready, i plug in the external hard drive and everything becomes insanely slow, and most of the time it will not respond. I use task manager and see that disk usage is on around 5% and cpu usage is around 2% so i just don't get it. I try to close task manager but it won't respond either. The only option is to disconnect the hard drive and everything is normal again!

Imac Doesn't Recognize Usb External Hard Disk

My new imac doesn't recognize my external hard disk (usb connection), which i used for. ? I am a new apple owner and user, just converted from an ms based pc environment. The drive is a western digital, on which i have stored all my pictures, music (itunes ironically) and ms office documents. I thought - or should i say hoped - it was just "plug and play", but this is clearly not the case. The imac does not recognize the drive. I can see that the drive is getting power from the usb, but i can also hear that it is not running properly (sounds like it is try to initialize again and again) and it does not show up in the devices menu. I have tried a couple of flash discs in the same usb port and they work. I have also tried to connect the external disk to different usb port, but to no avail. What do i do?

Dvd Player Connecting To Led Lcd Monitor

My dad wants me to buy him an 20~23" lcd "tv" to connect to his dvd player, but upon researching the catalog, i found lcd "monitors" (at 20~23") cheaper with more utilities. The dvd player uses rca connector, but all the lcd monitors i looked at does not support rca connector. So my question is, is there a way around this, and is buying an lcd monitor over an lcd tv a good idea? My dad has a laptop and doesn't play console games. I looked at all the 20~23" lcd monitor options asus offered, and my price range is around $250 usd and below.

Hard Drive Stops Getting Recognized

Sometimes my external hard drive(s) stop getting recognized by my computer. If i go to my computer it will show "local disk (i" in there but it will not have the bar under it showing how full it is and it won't let me access it. It usually takes a few minutes for it to become accessible again. It's always one of my 1tb western digital external's. Just a few minutes ago all of them became unrecognizable for about 30 seconds. What could be causing this? Could it be heat related?

Windows Media Player - Connect Burner

Why does my windows media player tell me "connect burner" it was working fine before?

Answer:- close your programs and then put a disk in the burner and see what happens. Also:

Try this - control panel - device manager - cd/dvd - double click the device - driver's tab - click. Update drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then right click the drive - uninstall - reboot

This will refresh the default driver stack. Even if drive is not shown continue below. Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues. Your cd drive or dvd drive is missing or is not recognized by windows or other programs: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

The cd drive or the dvd drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to windows vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461

Eide Dvd Drive Stops Functioning After New Eide Hd Install

I bought a seagate barracuda 400gb hd (372 in microsoft terms) and i installed it without a problem and had to change a few things in bios but right after my dvd drive stopped working. It works as in the computer knows its there and identifies it when device is uninstalled from device manager, as in the system says new hardware found, but since is a dvd writer i try to write and it says no media nor can it read of the cd/dvd's contents which is previously could and infact the drive burned. Also any tests i can do to make the situation clearer, please let me know as it is possible i did the installation wrong or something along those lines.

Dvd Drive Wont Eject Unless There Is A Disk In It

On my old pc, the dvd drive for a while would take two or three tries to get it to eject. When you push the button you here the drive make a noise like it's trying to push the tray out but it's stuck on something. Lately it began getting harder to open, but i started to notice that when there was a disk in there that it opened the first time, every time. I've been keeping a disk in there ever since so i could always get it open. One day last week my niece watched a dvd movie on it and took the disk out when she was done. Then it wouldn't open at all. I had to stick something into the emergency eject hole to get it open. I put a disk in it, and now opens again. I have a dvd-rom and a dvd-rw on my desktop, and today the dvd-rom drive on it wouldn't open. I had to eject it with the pin hole. I thought maybe it would do the same as the other system and work if there was a disk in it. I was wrong. When i ejected it with the pin hole, the disk was still spinning and scratched the crap out of it. The dvd drive in my older system i can understand going out, it's old after all, but it works fine as long as it has a disk in the drive. The one in my desktop though isn't as old and just started this today. I've never had this problem on any system in the past, so it's kind of strange that i now have two that are doing it. Is there some way to fix them or are they just junk now?

Dvd Rom Message: The Disk In Drive D Is Not Formatted

I am working on a laptop: dell inspiron 3800 and it contains a toshiba dvd-rom sd-c2402. Operating system: windows 2000, every time i put a cd in to the drive it comes up with the message: "the disk in drive d is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?" With only 2 responses "yes" and "no". If i click no then it just goes back the "my computer" window. I have tried uninstalling the driver and downloading them from both the dell and toshiba websites. These drivers are not recognised by windows and it reverts to using the windows standard cd-rom ones. If anyone can shead some light on this situation i would be very grateful.

Xp Does Not Boot From Hard Disk

I have bought a new hdd (ata), with jumper on master. I did installed xp professional sp2 (genuine licensed) once, this morning, everything was ok. After installing xp, i have booted from hdd without problems and even i did some small disaplay changes (resolution, colors, things like that), but i have installed nothing else). I've closed the os, closed the pc and went out for about 1 hour. When coming back the system refused to boot again from hdd. As i had nothing else installed on hdd except the xp, i decided to boot from cd, format again the partition and reinstall the xp. Surprise: the hdd is visible (bios sees it), is to be formated, xp files are copied on the c: partition as normal, no errors, but when first time the installing program needs to re-boot, it can not re-boot from hdd, and keeps booting from cd again and again. Any ideas?

Hard Disk Stress

I was talking with a collegue about my pc setup. I basically format and reinstall every so often 3-4 months. He pointed out that reinstalling puts an unnessesary amount of stress on the disk - but this shouldnt put the disk in danger- right? Say no more than heavy gaming etc?

I generally monitor the condition of my disks and i have not noticed any significant change.

Hard Disk Crashing On Every Five Minutes

My computer hangs. No warning, no messages, no extremely taxing problems. Just, hangs. Meaning. . My mouse can't move, my keyboard doesn't work. Everything is in stop time ( can't even use ctrl+atl+del) when my computer restarts, it shows that my primary master isn't detected. If i wiggle my ide cables around, it detects it. Now, here's the thing. The maxtor is a brand new hard drive, i had the same problem with my old western digital (40gb one) and i replaced it. I've tried changing my ide cables, and same problem. I've tried buying an ide controller card and same problem. Anyone with any idea on what i'm missing.
