I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 1440, my CD burner has stopped working. I successfully burned one CD today (with photos) but suddenly it can't burn any more CDs and suggests I may need to update my "firmware." What can I do?

CD drives that are bundled with computer can / may require specialized "firmwares" directly from the system maker. Check on Dell's web site if your computer is "rated" for Windows 7. Then, check for firmware availability.
If Dell does not provided a firmware update and your computer is capable of running Windows 7 officialy, you may be out of lock and the CD (DVD???) has "died."
