    I am having the same problem I turn on my laptop and sometimes the DVD optical drive is recognized but more often than not the dvd rom is not found ANYWHERE. I transport my laptop frequently but I have never dropped or misused it. Help me please!

    Its definately a hardware problem, not software!... i updated all of my drivers, and used the microsoft support diagnosis.. and it said there was no response from the driver... i gave the disk drive some firm taps from the bottom and she sang like a bird and started working again.. i guess i'll keep doing that untill it dies out and i'll replace the disk drive... hope this helps anybody.

Why doesn't my HP 4620 print black ink


Either the BLACK INK CARTRIDGE is out of ink of it's possible the ink jets (they eject the ink onto the paper) are clogged/dirty. Your software under HP in PROGRAMS from the START MENU should provide a 'cleaning' cycle. How to Clean Print Heads is a link to help you with how.

Burning movies on the computer , playback fine on two computeers , will not play on ONN portable player used DVD-R


Burning dvd\'s is always a crapshoot when you have multiple machines. Computer drives are more tolerant on playback - the problem lies with your other, independent playback units. That is why in your main viewing area it is important that you have a few units so that if disk does not play in one machine, it will play on another. Has to do with the individual differences and calibrations of the machines involved. Store bought dvd\'s have less problems because their laser reflectivity is always higher than disks you burn, and therefore, easier to read properly. Price of the unit has no reflection on ability to properly read the disk. Sometimes and often, a cheaper machine will work better with copies - you never know.
