just insert a blank dvd in writer and send the file to dvd drive showing in ur computer by write click on the file and choose send to say dvd rw drive f.
when all the files are transferes to your dvd drive. click on my comuter and open this dvd drive there you see a option in the left panel " write these files in to disc".
click that option wait for some minutes until a popup comes saying writing completed .
now your file has been successfully written in the disc.
If the firmware was never updated, it can cause this. A tool like Nero infotool will show the drive firmware version or you can scan your registry for "4481" and locate an entry in <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\DeviceClasses> that shows the drive model and a numeric fw version.
You can go to HP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=pv-28110-1 or to Dell http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Others/Dell-Dimension-8300-HLDS-GCC4481-B-Firmware-28012005.shtml and use their firmware update.
There are two common causes for these kinds of problems: software doesn't match, or media doesn't match. also, there a lack of info in here. is drive capable of reading dvd's when it is used for other purposes?
1. are you sure you got the right firmware? check for updates on brand site or on google.
2. try using several types of media from diffrent brands. some drives cannot read specific media (for instance, sony drivers sometimes having trouble with JVC media).
3. the least common, but worst option by far is a hardware problem. if drive is bad, you should try and replace it in case your warrenty didnt expire.
