My presario R3000's combo drive no longer wants to burn dvds
Model R3240US Combo dvd burner/cd burner drive
I use the correct format as stated on the laptops factory sticker. ''DVD+R/RW for up to 4.7gn of secure storage'' Re-installing drivers had no effect on my problem. Any program i use to make a dvd just doesn't find the blank. Everything about the drive works fine. Reads dvd movies and burns cds still, just no burnin dvds any longer. It just doesn't seem like it's a hardware problem.

Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.
Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.
Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.
I have your solution, but you are NOT gonna like it, so I hope you will rate it FAIRLY, even though its relatively BAD NEWS.
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS:

You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following: Recordable Drive = CD Burner DVD = DVD Player RW & DVD = DVD Burner
If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.
This could be a glitch with your burning software. Try removing and reinstalling it, or using a different software. The other possibility is the drive, occassionally with a CD/DVD combo drive the DVD reader or burner will fail, leaving the CD end working.
