Need some help, I'm a nub ;)

Hi there, I have an HP writer DVD400i which really can’t do anything except read CD-Roms. Anyways, somehow I managed to make it a 400c KH27. It still won’t detect DvDs and in device manager it is only listed as a Cd/Dvd-rom. My questions are, how can I get it detected, How can I get it to play Dvds and how can a flash to a phillips? Any help is much appriciated.

Thanks.

Hi and Welcome!

if you want a reliable drive, then buy something new. This drive is more than five years old and will lack support of any modern media available.
