DVD LightScribe R/RW drive not recognized by OS on HP Pavilion D4100Y 32 bit Windows XP


Hi Bob.

You will have to take the side panel off the computer and check that the power cable is connected to the DVD/RW, if it is and you have no LED indicators or the tray won't open it is a strong possibility that that the drive itself has failed and you will need to replace it with a new one. Optical drives are very cheap these days not costing much over 20 dollars or 10 pounds. DVD optical drives are plug and play so the operating system will already have the drivers preinstalled.






Regards.

HELP MY COMPUTER WONT READ ANY CD'S EXCEPT A DVD,, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?? ANY HELP


hi

you have either one of these ..

5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read

EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed

make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds

if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .


go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .

if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself

i hope this helps

Dvd-rw does not work when inserted in D drive the message returns "please insert DVD into drive"


Hi! You may have a problem with the optical drive/CD rom drive. The lens may be dirty so i suggest you run a cd lens cleaner. If it still doesnt help, I believe you need to buy a CD rom replacement. Hope this helps.

I have an internal HP DVD Writer 740b that writes on CD but not on DVD. I tried Sony DVD RW and Memorex DVD-RW to copy files on but I failed. I use Nero Essentials to burn. The dialogue box keeps saying no...


DVD-RW drives have 2 different designs, 1 used dual optics, 1 for CD one for DVD, the other uses optics that can refocus between the media types.

If you haven't done so already, flash the firmware of the drive to the latest available from HP.

Assuming that the drive worked with NERO previously, If that doesn't resolve, you will likely need to replace the drive.

If you have not used Nero with that drive for DVD media, you might try a different SW and see if Roxio/Sonic will see DVD media in the drive.
