DVD Burner Not Found


male sure the laptop has teh burn dvd capability cause it can be just a cd writer and dvd rom ..and in this case it is explainable why its giving the error ..
If you are sure you have a dvd writer ...than be sure you select it in the options of the burning software you use..
and 3rd ... if your writer is corrupted ..try to go to device manager ..(click right on compuer select properties..and device manager..) in there look for dvd writer...click right on it ..and select update driver...If the disk is not present click right on computer ..and select scan for hardware changes...If the writer is deactivated this will bring it back ..Than update its driver and be sure it's not in yellow cause this means the driver is not the correct one ..
If no action will correct this ..and still makes the same ..than I suggest to reinstall the operation system ..and this way you will eliminate the possibility that a bug corrupted it ...and in case it still not working you have to consider replacing it ..but not before trying a operation system reinstall ..cause there are viruses that attack the disk drive's driver ..and this is the only fix .

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

Dvd writer does not write or read any dvd on hp pavillion a1230n windows xp operating system


Try booting from the disc drive with a windows CD. If it does work, then try uninstalling from devices in windows, then scan for hardware changes and re-install. If its still not working I suggest doing a backup of your files and re-install windows, a corrupted registry may also cause this. If trying to boot from CD does not work you will need to replace the DVD drive
