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!!

I have a HP, I had to have my DVD/CD rom drive replaced. Now I don"t have the Sonic program that came preinstalled on my computer. How can I get it? Best Buy said that I had to restall it. But I have not...


Ok, when you replace an optical drive (in this case, your dvd/cd drive) you "don't have to uninstall any program". The replacement of such device does not require to uninstall any media burning software. Though, If the program is no longer in your computer, you can download a free utility which will perform as well as the Sonic program. I recommend you to go to www.download.cnet.com and search for Ashampoo Burning Studio Free. Download and install it. I use all the times when I have to reinstall an Operative System from scratch. Good luck.

Try uninstalling Roxio and the Sonic drives and run Fixit. Then reboot and install Roxio first then the Sonic driver.
If this doesn't work uninstall again as previously, install Roxio and check the CD/DVD if necessary run Fixit then install Sonic driver.

Hi, HP use Sonic software to burn CD and work with the CD DVD writer. If burn CD using Sonic soon as the CD burn complete the CD will auto matic will eject just turn the up side down and push it back you can burn the text or image to the CD label. I have 3 HP desktop and that's the way I used to burn CD and Lightscribe labeling.

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.
