Did you try to take it our forwards? if im not wrong that one goes out in the front, Dont forget to take away all the screws. there are at least 4 of them and you need to unloose them from both sides.

Good luck to you

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer. How do I print directly on a CD? Is there a template available?


I checked the printer specs to be sure there was not some new technology I had never heard of out there, you never know. Your HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer does not support printing on CD/DVD disks, and as far as I know there is no printers that will.

What you need to print on a CD/DVD is a LightScribe CD/DVD burner. You will also have to buy special printable disks to use with the LightScribe burner.

Hope this helps

I am looking for a hp lightscribe dvd supermulti drive/cd writer that is compatable with a hp pavilion a720n desk top computer and all so a dvd/cd rom combo that is compatable with ...


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.

My CD rom and lightscribe dvd writer/cd writer for my HP Pavilion1120n do no work. I have tried the trouble shooting and it says it is corrupted or there is no code 39


If you can still detect the device, you should try reinstalling the driver from your device manager. If still doesnt work , you should try to upgrade the firmware driver using proprietary software included in your dvd writer cd.

Hope this will help you out .. :)

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.

Lightscribe DVD + Writer/ CD-Writer....it seems to not recognize a DVD-RW or DVD-R blank disk.


These drives are very picky about the CD's and DVD's they accept because the chemicals on the different manufacturers DVD and CD's are all different. What you will have to do is experiment with different brands... for example go buy very few Verbatim DVD's if the brand works for you stick with it. Unfortunately they don't tell the customers about this... but every burner I have... there are some brand CD and DVD that won't be accepted by the drive. For a shortcut by the CD or DVD's that the manual recommends that is most certainly to work and lets you cut to the chase more expendiantly without wasting money. Good Luck

I have a HP media centre pc, which has a lightscribe DVD writer/CD writer. It will only run certain cd's, most of the time it will not recognise there is a disc in the drive. The drive will start up,...


unfortunately it's a sure sign your drive is faulty, the noises are the laser trying to read the tracks, cd's can be easier read than dvd's because the tracks are wider apart, whereas dvd's data is packed tighter together and the reading is more difficult for a faulty laser, you will need to replace it or buy an external usb writer.

The optical drive itself is faulty. If the computer is under warranty, contact HP to have a tech come out and replace it. As an HP warranty tech, I see this quite a bit.
