Hp dvd lightscribe dual layer burner problem

I have a hp dvd burner which has generally worked fine untill now it still burns cd's ok with nero but with dvd's it's different it tries to burn but only goes to 1% and stays there sometimes it will go further say 37% and just stop or freeze then my dvd will not eject and i have to cold boot to get the dvd out of the drive. What could be the problem, could it be to many things on my hard drive taking up space and causing the programme to slow down or more than that

It could be that your drive is just getting wore out.

It could be the amount of data on your hard drive. I have noticed systems do tend to operate poorly once the hard drive get's 50% or more full. This is because windows uses part of the hard drive as memory so when the hard drive is getting full it has less memory to work with and things start to slow down and even freeze.

One slight possibility could be that the power supply has become weak and is not able to deliver the necessary power to the burner as it used to. One way to test this is to remove all devices that consume power from the power supply except for the necessary ones like the hard drive, keyboard, and mouse and see if it improves any.

If you have another computer or have a friend with a computer you can try the dvd burner in you can rule out the power supply or the rest of your system, for that matter, being a problem.

I have a Superwritemaster dvd/cd duplicator with lightscribe capability. But I can't get the lightscribe to work. Help!


>You need to install the drivers for Lightscribe; if you don't have them Google Lightscribe HP and you should find them on the HP website. Then you need a disk label burning program that runs Lightscribe. Droppix.com has a good one, I think HP also has a basic one.

Burns dvds fine wont burn dual layer dvds


This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
