My CD/DVD player on my computer will not read media cd's

I have an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop computer with a HP Lightscribe cd/dvd player and writer that plays DVD's Music DVD's and the like as well as writing and labeling. I recently had to do a systems restore and lost the softwhere for my HP all in one printer. I keep trying to upload the information from the HP Software disk and my Player will not pick up the disk or play it. I went to HP and tried to find downloads and or trouble shoot the problem as well as Lightscribe but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with it all. I can play a music cd or a dvd but not software cd's. Any answers?

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything


If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

    Can't burn DVD but can burn cd


    There is a possibility that the laser of the optical drive is not functioning anymore to write dvd. This is what you have to do.

    Click on Start
    Click Run
    Type regedit and press OK
    Registry Editor windows will come up
    go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SYSTEM
    CurrentControlSet
    Control
    CLass
    {4d36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    on the right hand side, delete "Upper FIlters" and "Lower Filters" you may see on it. Everything that has something to say on upper and lower filters.

    Close the Registry Editor and then Click on START, right click on My Computer and then select Properties.

    Go to Hardware Tab and click on Device Manager
    click on the (+) sign of the cd/dvd rom and right click on the item below and select Uninstall.

    Close everything and restart your computer and try burning a dvd

    ***remember to use burning software since windows XP explorer could not simply burn data using the Explorer it self.

    Right click on My Computer
    Select Manage
    Select Device Manager
    Click on Action and then Scan for hardware changes

    That should look for your dvd/cd drive and install the right drivers. After it's done, restart you PC and your drive should be back.
