Question about HP (346789-001) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

1 Answer

When I put a cd r in my burner then press burn selection then it

Here is my problem,
I use a HP pre-installed sonic program to burn DVD's and CD's.
I was having some problems with my computer and I accidently wiped my computer clean, loosing everything!
So I followed the "easy step by step format my computer feature".
All was good, got my pre-loaded XP back, also got back all my pre-programed software such as sonic.
I was thrilled, until I put a CD-R disk in my burner tray, I then made a song selection in my sonic music software and then hit burn.
My disk tray opened and a message read, PLEASE INSERT BLANK OR REWRITABLE CD INTO THE HP DVDRW DL (E:) DRIVE.
I have tried dozens of blank CD's and no luck, tried HP to down load new drivers and no luck, tried Driver Detective and it found tons of problems, but have to buy service to fix.
So I loaded PC WIZARD 2008 and this is what it says regarding my dvd/cd system.
I cannot understand a thing it says?
Can anyone help me get my DVD/CD burners to work again?
PLEASE.

    same here ! what do i do ?

  • Jerry May 11, 2010

    Basically the info you get back from PC Wizard is the cd/dvd rom information and it appears to have tested fine. Most users don't give you any info, in your case you have given great technical information. Can you give me the HP laptop model? I'd like to look a bit more into your specific problem.

Downloading a programn


If you have a DVD burner in your system, you probably have software that will allow you to burn disks already installed on your machine. The most common programs are Roxio, Sonic or Nero. I haven't used the Roxio software for a long time (since version 3), so I don't know how much as changed in its use. With Sonic or Nero, you just tell it what kind of disk you want to burn (for a program or data file, select data disc). Then add the files you would like to burn to the disk and click on the burn button. A few minutes later you will have a copy of your program burned onto the disk.

If for some reason you do not have any third-party burning software installed on your computer, you can insert a blank CD or DVD into the drive and when the autoplay options appear, select the option for having Windows prep the disk to burn files to it. Or you can even use Windows Media Player to do this too, but you would need to go into open up the Burn menu and select the Data CD or DVD option (instead of Audio CD).

Hope this helps!

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

try and reinstall the sonic program if you have it. it sounds like the computer did not have the sonic software on it when you bought it, so it would have been removed when you restored your computer.

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
