HP DVD Writer 1040r on XP Service Pack 3, installed about a year ago and all wroked well until 2 months ago. Now I get msg saying I have NO device when trying to make a CD or a DVD. Device Mgr shows the...

NO PC stated at all, really?
XP is dead,'

did you test the system first.?
no burning steps stated.>? try imgburn ;last/but
first is: DM shows ok (checked off)

Does XP read any CD made. premade by pros'.>???>>
check that the PC can read or not read many discs
CD or DVD.
lets do a list. test many disks is best.

1: CD-DA, this is first. a store bought music disk
it will show no files, it is not files formatted
its music only, and plays does it play? music.
2: now take any install disk CD for windows.
a MS or HP install disk on CD is tops. (any)
can you see files now? you must.
if not XP is messed up, as ALL ARE NOW.
3: ok CDs read ok... now DVD.
4: again find a DVD install disk, w8 , w10.
or any DVD PC install disk.
and see if you can see the files using
MY COMPUTER (windows explorer)
does that work if not XP is bad or drive bad.
ok that works we graduate to BURNING.

5: get free Imgburn (google it)
use it and burn any CD-R. ok?
now burn DVD-R, burn some JPGs to test it.
if ok then its working
if not what,

if all above fails, (IDK)
then reload XP
if that fails the Drive is bad.

what I do to know any drive is bad is
load linux live off a boot USB stick.
bad now? cant read pro made disks?
or load windows. 7 PE, to usb stick boot that and test the DVD , for reading, if ok , XP IS TOASTED
as all are.

My Sony burns cds but doesn't burn dvds!!!

It may be a dual laser type burner and the dvd laser has faulted, you can try using a cd/dvd cleaner to clean the laser. Otherwise try:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
