Dell :: Direct Swap With Blu-ray Burner From Xps 16?

Apr 13, 2010

Does anyone know if the blu-ray burner that is used in the XPS 16 can be used as a direct swap in the studio 15?

The reason I am asking is because I have a 16 with the blu-ray burner but the xps 16 is a bit bulky. I still need equivalent power and multi-media capabilities but the 15 is almost a pound lighter and lends to a little more portability.

I am considering purchasing the studio 15 but can't justify the costs of adding the blu-ray. I got my xps 16 with blu-ray for a steal and I can't duplicate those kind of savings with the changes recently made to EPP.

Ideally, I would like to swap the dvd drive and throw it into the 16 in addition to adding the blu-ray to the 15.

Thanks in advance!

Dell :: Need A Better Dvd Burner

Nov 14, 2009

I am tired of the one I have now. It takes well over 30 minutes to burn just one CD.

I have the philips dvd burner that came with the laptop and I simply do not like it. Some CDs it wont even read, while other drives can read them.

Dell :: M4400 DVD Burner

Jun 22, 2009

I noticed that dell list two compatible models, YP311 and XX243. On Dells website they both have identical descriptions. I assume Dell is just switching between two different manufactures.

Does anyone have any advice if one functions better then the other?

maybe this is a stupid question, but I was wondering what was the differences between these 3 choices dell offers for the sxps 1645

slot load blue-ray disc (bd) combo (reads bd and writes to dvd/cd) (same as first choice ???)

slot load blue-ray disc (bd) burner (writes to dvd/cd/bd)

Dell :: E6400 DVD Burner Sound

May 7, 2009

I recently purchased an e6400 off of the business outlet, and everything is in working condition. However, upon insertion of the cd disk tray, there is a sound which I have never prior heard coming from a cd drive

( for a recording. IE7 will open it, IE8 will not).

I went ahead and contacted CS, and they overnighted a replacement, which I put in, but it still has the same sound, though to a lesser degree as far as I can tell.
1. Is this normal, or is this a problem with the dvd drive/notebook as a whole .....

Is there a place that sells the blu-ray burner that dell puts into their laptops now?

Do you have to buy from Dell? Is this drive compatible with the inspiron 9300? I have modded the bios on my 9300 to the M170 bios. Also, will my video card handle this drive and blu-ray movies? I have a 7800 GTX.

Let me know what you guys think about this.

Sony :: FW Blu Ray/DVD Burner

Mar 17, 2009

Except one thing.
They HAD to use a Mata UJ230AS drive didn't they?

A laptop by its very design is to be used as a portable computer, yet due to the nonsensical region coding, it means that when I go to the USA on buisness or vacation, I cannot use the DVD player!

These Matsu drives are the ONLY ones which cannot be modified to play any region.
Its unethical.

I can legitamately buy a dvd in the USA, putting money into Sony pictures coffers, yet Sony won.t allow me to play it on their laptop .....

Jan 4, 2009

My 1737 is currently running DX 10 not 10.1 the ATI HD 3650 supports 10.1 but I don;t have the newest drivers on it yet. Just as DELL ships it.

My question is where can I download Direct X 10.1 because when I run Vista Update it says I am fully up to date. Should'nt Vista tell me about DX 10.1?

Or Should I got to ATI's site and get the newest Drivers for the HD 3650? which should do First?

HP/Compaq :: Blu-ray Player/DVD Burner On Dv5

May 6, 2009

I have a dv5 1010tx (Vista Ultimate 64), which has an Optiarc BC 5500s Blu-ray player/ DVD burner combo. I have found the burner has trouble reading DVD'S it has burned, especially DL. Have tried different media, even Verbatim. My toshiba laptop seems to read these disks with ease, so I suspect it's a firmware issue. Has anyone else had this problem, & has anyone found a solution. No reply from my enquiry to HP as yet, & the firmware updates provided on the Optiarc site are said to be not compatible with drives installed by HP, Dell ect. I also note this was a problem with the BC 5600s, for which HP provided a firmware update earlier this year.

Dell :: Media Direct 2.0 Please?

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to get hold of Media Direct for the Dell 6000. I've searched quite a few boards and come across links to where it was supposed to be, but they've been old links.

I've also been able to download 80% of the ISO on a torrent I've found, but its now stopped as the guys who had 100% have gone off line.

I was hoping someone here has still got a copy of the ISO so I can reinstall it onto the laptop I've just replaced the hard drive with.

Dell :: Media Direct 3.0

Oct 22, 2007

I just got an i9300, that I'm having fun setting up. I've already done a couple hardware upgrades (OUT; 1GB PC4200, IN; 2GB PC5300. OUT; 60GB/5400, IN; 160GB/5400). See "sig" for rest of specs.

I've got a copy of Windows MCE 05. I'd like to set this up with Dell Media Direct 3.0. I've done a ton of searching the forums here, and a few other sites. I've printed out several hard copies of "How To Install MD3" threads for reference., here's the crux. I need a copy of MD3. I "acquired" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more) a copy, and burned the ISO to DVD. When I first used it, it set up the partitions, and then gave a wierd error about "not being able to find the Media Direct PLAY button...". Setup halted in it's tracks. I ran it a couple times, same error. After the 2nd try, I exited out and installed MCE05.

My hard drive had the 47MB (EISA Configuration) partition on the front, my C: drive, followed by a 2.01GB "Unknown Partition". Looks right, but, both the 47MB and 2.01GB partitions are empty. 100% empty.

So, I install MCE05, all the drivers, Nero 7 and Cyberlink PowerDVD 6. Defrag. I then put the MD3 disk in, and let it do it's thing. The Installation Notice comes up, and then it halts IMMEDIATELY thereafter, giving an error of "This system is not supported by this Reinstallation DVD. Installation will now exit."

Are there different versions of MD for different machines/OS'es/etc?? What version do I need for my system/OS??

What are the chances that I can sweet talk Dell into sending me a copy, where this system is out of warranty and I'm the 2nd owner?

If the chances of that (above) are "none", does anyone have a copy of the "correct" version I can "borrow" so I can get this set up?

My sister has a HP laptop with a bad DVD burner, it won't burn and it makes a grinding sound whenever a disk is in the drive. I don't know the model, anyway it's still under warranty and I'm wonder if she will have to send the laptop back in order for them to replace it. Sending it back is a big no no, and I can replace the drive myself.

Dell :: Re-installing Media Direct 3.5

May 14, 2009

Windows Vista crashed and the OS disk that was included with the system was corrupt so I had a local company re-install from their disk, however, I did not

supply them with the media direct CD (v3.5 on an Inspiron 1525) because I didn't know that it had to be installed at the same time.

Now I need to (from looking at other threads) partition the disk - will this be done by just running the Media Direct CD and picking option 1?

Or do I have to have the OS disk (which I don't have)? I don't want to pick option 1 until I know that I don't need the OS disk .....

Dell :: Media Direct 4 On The Studio 15

Sep 16, 2008

I just got my Studio 15 last week and love this notebook! On previous Inspiron notebooks if you pressed one of the media buttons while the system was off, it would then do a quick boot to a Media Direct partition where you could play movies and music and also view photos. However, on my studio, when I press the media direct botton while the notebook is off, it changes the splash screen during POST to a Media Direct splash screen but then boots into the OS, where I have to log in, and then the Media Diract app launches. This was a big dissapointment for me. Is anyone else seeing this? I was hoping that maybe I got a bad factory install, but if others are seeing this then I guess Dell has done away with the hidden Media Direct partition.
