It's pointing towards a hardware problem. You can try updating your drive's firmware.

Check HP's support page to see if they have one available.

If not you can check the device manager details of your drive and find one floating around the net, I'm sure.

Which dvd disks do I buy to burn a dvd on my optiarc dvd rw ad 7563a ATA Can I add later batches of pictures? can I reuse the DVD disks?


DVD media has several types:

* DVD-R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD+R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD-RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD+RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD dual-layer ("write-once-read-many")

Some CD/DVD-writing software allows multiple "sessions" (write a bunch of files, do not "close" the disk, much later write a bunch of files), so that you can "add" files to an "open" ("non-closed") CD/DVD disk.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Won't recognize blank dvd


Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck
