These are the first few steps you should take.
First, go to the HP website and make sure you have the latest Vista compatible drivers for the device.
Update the drivers and see how you go.
Failing that uninstall the device from the device manager and get rid of the drivers while you are at it.
Disconnect the device then reboot the computer.
Shut the computer down again, re-connect the device and reboot. Allow Windows to detect the device and, if asked, give it the new drivers or if there was no update then let it install the original drivers.

I can't get my brand new HP dvd 1270i 24X Multiformat DVD Writer,to load the nero9 Essentials software/Drivers and manuals and LightScribe to install.Also no Windows Vista will not load any workable...

You've got a toughie here but I'm wierd enough to either answer corretly or you trash my ratings.

So. here's the sense of it Load all W7 drivers possible for your stuff. It was all built off Vista anyway. and If you're not running Vista Ultimate 64 Bit while you're messing around, you should be ballsy enough to ask for the consultant pre-activated disc of same so you can play right or quit bitchin'

Unable to write on DVD-R using DVD/CD-ROM

Yes, if you have a DVD writer installed, you should be able to write to DVDs. What happens when you try? If you look at the DVD writer in the Device Manager, does it have any sort of error or warning? Do you have the correct driver installed for the DVD writer?

I cant see how to change the cartridges, what do I (sx205)


There are only a couple of steps.

1) Remove the empty cartridege and check the writing on it. If it has any bold and big numbers on it, write these down.
2) Go to office supply store and give the clerk your notes.
3) Make sure you get the right one and take it home.
4) Check to be sure your printer is on.
5) Open your printer's lid.
6) Explain how to get the cartridge holder in a position that the old cartridge can be removed and the new one inserted.
7) Take out the old cartridge and put inside a small ziploc if you want to.
8) Dispose of the old cartridge. Or if possible, have the cartridge recycled.
9) Unpack new cartridge and place inside the printer.
10) Print a test page.
11) Reconfigure printer heads for best quality.

Just installed new HP dvd1270i. PC boots but

Check your power connector to the DVD Rom and also check the cables (Sata or IDE). If this doesn't bring any solution, scan your system using updated anti virus. Good luck.
