but if cd-rom is burning cd's and not dvd's this is usually problem with software, you need to state what software you are using to burn dvd's as well, seem like you do not choose correct driver in your burn software settings.
are you sure that it is a dvd writer >??? and not a cd writer ..dvd combo?? in this case you can not burn but a cd..and play the dvd ...Im saying this cause most of them are equipped like that it plays dvd-es but burn only cd-es..another thing try to install a bunner like nero ..or iso hunt ...if it doesnt want to ..maybe is all in right with the os...in both cases try to burn an image on the hdd ...like in a game that came iso...just choose burn image ..or change the device into the image burner ...and will burn a image with the recovery dvd you want to ...this one export it to another computer on a memory stick ..and burn it to a disk..
I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
4x DVD-/+R DL
so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...
Make sure you are trying to burn the right type DVD There are several, but most common are DVD+R and DVD-R Look on Tray of drive to see Also, some cheap high-speed CDROM are ****. 40-52x not really ;-) Buy good CDRoms
If still no joy... Could also be that a new device or proggie grabbed the DVD drive IRQ Reinstall last Service Pack again Reboot Retry
This is a common problem with HP Pavilion series laptops - after a while, the DVD burners burns disks okay (it thinks), but then when you insert the DVD later it does not recognise it as having any content. Very irritating. There are two fixes. One is to update the firmware on the DVD drive (you need to download a bunch of stuff for this), but the other, believe it or not, is to change the writing DVDs you use. Try VERBATIM DVD -Rs, which work on my Pavilion when most others will not. I am guessing this has to do with the wavering power output of the laser in the drive as it gets older, it becomes more picky about what DVDs it will write. So try a different brand of DVDs first.
