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

2 Answers

PLEASE INSERT BLANK OR REWRITABLE CD INTO THE HP DVDRW DL (E:) DR

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.

    I have the same problem. I have uninstalled the burner and restarted computer and problem persists. I have contacted HP and they say I have to pay them for customer service, because it's been past a year since I purchased the computer. I have searched help elsewhere and they all tell be to uninstall the drive and restart, even though I said I already tried that. BULLLSHIT!!

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.

If it is in fact a Teac CD-Rewritable W58E CD-RW Burner, this will only burn CDs and not DVDs. If you put in a blank DVD you will get this error. You will need a burner that has DVD burning support.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)

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.
