Question about HP LightScribe dvd640i (DVD640I) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
I am having a similar problem with my HP DVD 1040i 20x mulitformat dvd writer. I have windows xp pro service pack 3 and in the hardware configuration its shows up as hp dvd writier 1040r?? Im Thinking R?? Well, anyhow when I insert a blank dvd-r into the drive it doesnt recognize it as a blank dvd, just says "CD" My question is, Does anyone know of a firmware update for this writer? Windows has their default firmware on there from 2001.. Any ideas suggestions? Just need to updatethe firmware and HP website doesnt have any firmware software updates for it at all
On the back of the hardware are jumpers
mine are located next to where the ribbon plugs in
there are 3 jumpers- like this : : :
the jumper must be on "cable" ( printed above post )
just move the jumper and reinstall
Now xp can find the 10401
I did it...it works
