Go to your My Computer icon, and click on properties and device manager under hardware tab. Go to your dvd/cd player, and check to see if you have one that is enabled or has a driver. (Go to the plus sign and double-click). If the hardware/drive is disabled, it will have a red cross on it, then just enable it by clicking on it and you will see an enable or disable tab. This will most likely solve the problem.
If not, let me know...

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Hi,

Its not compatible. It has different screw listings then V4000.
If you could provide me the product No. which is at the bottom sticker of the notebook of your Compaq v4000 laptop then I can find the part no. for LCD screen which is less costlier and exchangeable.

If the problem persists, then you are most likely having a problem with your player and might need to be cleaned or replaced.

Need help with Compaq Presario v2000 drivers


Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.
