HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed CD/DVD RW

I own a HP DV4000 series Laptop that came with a standard CD RW/DVD Rom, HP part # 391649-6C0. I recently purchased a DVD±RW LightScribe, 8X IDE Dual Layer Drive (HP part #396704-001).

This new drive is supposed to be compatible with my laptop. The new drive is ABLE to play DVD's and recognizes CD's but is NOT recognized as a recorder. I tried using several different programs, (Roxio, Nero, Sonic) to burn DVD's or CD's but I get a message from the programs saying "the program could not detect any supported decoders. Please ensure your recorder is properly connected."

I tried reinstalling the DVD/CD drive, checking the plug & play, & updating the drivers but have had no success. I also tried the boot sequance in the BIOS but again no success.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

How can I find out if my HP Pavilion dv4000 has a DVD burner?


The simple way is to insert an empty disk and try burning the disk with some content. If it burns, that means you have a dvd burner fixed with ur device. Another way which is comparitively complicated is to check the device in the device manager. Right click on My Computer and click on Manage on that. You will get another window opened
In the left navigation pane, you will see device manager. click on that and see your DVD Drive status. If its given as DVD+ RW then you have dvd burner installed in ur system.

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.
