    Hello, i need some help. I have an brand new dell Latitude E6400. But the dvd rom wont read empty cd/dvd`s..?? But if i innsett a cd/dvd wich is burned on before, or a software cd, or a dvd film it is all OK. If i innsett a blank cd/dvd and open nero 9.4 to burn i get the message "No target station avable" The sone are correct set. What can be wrong??

    Visit the Dell website and try updating firmware / drivers. Alternatively visit the dvd rom drive manufacturers website.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why would you want to put an EMPTY cd/dvd in a DVD-ROM since in a DVD-ROM you can't write to it.

    Problem solved. In fact, there was a dvd rom, not a dvd rw:) I thought a dell laptop deliverd from dell in august 2009 sure included dvd rw, but i was wrong, there was only dvd rom. I`m sorry for posting my mistake:(
