Hello. My Name is Simon. I have a hp670s laptop with tsst corp Ts-l633l cd/dvd player. I have some problems with it. It doesn't want to read the dvd-s. I tried to change the firmware, but it writes...
DVD(-) are better suited towards standalone DVD recorders and TV units. DVD (+) are better suited towards your PC needs.
However, that being said, there's no reason your writer shouldn't recognize and write to them.
Some simple steps are:
1) clean your laser lens - alcohol and a q-tip work best for this, and you'd be surprised how often this will work.
2) burn your DVD's at a slower burn rate - if the problem is with reading discs, try burning them slower. If the problem is recognizing the discs altogether,
3) Make sure you have the current drivers/firmware for you disc drive. Firmware updates may enable the use of DVD(-)'s and drivers may be required.
4) You can attempt adjusting the POT settings on your laser, as well, with the caution that this may or may not make it worse, or just break the drive entirely.
If all else fails, get a new drive. DVD writers are cheap and easy to replace in a laptop.
