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.

Is either the problem comes from your CD writer Lense that might be so weak to burn in which we call for a replace or probably your CD that you want to write on is bad . so you have to test another CD that is working fine on the writer first and if that persist you will only change the CD writer is weak for writing on CD

Write error message with liteon dvd writer..


I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

Cd burning drive


ARE YOU SURE THATS A CD WRITER NOT JUST A CD ROM. IF ITS A CD WRITER AND YOU ARE USING THE OS AS WINDOWS XP....JUST TRY SENDING THE FILE DIRECTLY TO THE BLANK CD IN THE DRIVE...IF IT BURNS THE CD WRITER IS OK AND THE APPLICATION (NERO OR WATEVER) YOU ARE USING TO BURN THE CD REQUIRES TO BE REINSTALLED
