Does it show up in my computer? It would probably be drive d,e,or f depending on how many drives you have. Also check in device manager and see if it is listed there. If it is try re-installing the drivers. What happens when you insert a CD? If it doesn't show up anywhere and will not play CDs it may be toast.

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?


This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

Pavilion 533w cannot read dvd from DVD ROM drive but CAN read CDs. A restore of Windows XP was performed using HP's non-destructive recovery option.


The combo uses two lasers - one for the dvd and the other for the cd. If the unit works perfectly on cd and at all on dvd then the dvd laser has died and the entire unit with it, it can't be fixed. Buy a new dvd writer and junk the old one.

Hp cd-writer Not Working


Depending on what HP computer/cd-writer it is the type of disc you are using may not be supported.
Older cd-writers often had a specific type they could write to, CD -r / CD +r.

You should try to find out what kind of discs are supported by your cd-writer. This CAN be located in text on the front of the cd-writer.

Cd/dvd rom


It may be really dirty or just to old or has had laser failure.

There cheap these days, and CD drive with DVD Rom reading ability are like $20 to $30 depending on speed and brand.

A DVD/CD RW writer reader are also getting cheaper, around $60 and up usually.

And some advice. Dont by HP Pavilions. I've worked on alot and i find they have outdated parts cuz there remanufactured from older computers and you have a hard time upgrading due to hard to find drivers
