Question about HP DVD 740VI 16X16 Dual Layer LightScribe DVDRW Blk RTL (HPDVD704VI) Burner

Hp dvd 740

I put in a disk, and the drive doesn't even read it, or see that it's there. I believe the disks I'm trying to use are of the "DVD+R" type. This drive supports both types, and I've used this exact make and model of disk before with no problems. When I fire up Nero to burn an ISO, or anything else to the disk, it won't let me continue to the burn process, because there's not any blank media in the drive...or so it thinks. My OS: Windows XP Home Service Pack 2.

I had the same problem. I went to the computer store and bought me a new IDE cable. As I was removing the old one, I discovered it was half way disconnected. It fixed part of the problem. The other problem I'm having now is slow burn in time. About in the 5000 min range.

My cd and dvd player is not working. i have a toshiba laptop with windows vista. please advise. thank you.


If by not working you mean that the drive physically works fine, will eject and stays closed when you put a disk in, but does not read the disk or gives errors when it tries, then a simple cleaning could be enough to revive it. A lens cleaning cd is easy enough to find at any local department store and running this in the drive should take care of any problems reading disks unless the disks themselves are damaged.

If however you meant that the drive doesn't respond to eject requests, either when pressing the button, or choosing "eject" in windows, then the hardware itself is at fault and will need to be replaced. The drive is easy to swap out with a replacement or you could even get a portable external drive and only connect it when you actually need to use the disk. Also if the cleaning suggested above doesn't help, and you are sure the disks you are trying are not dirty or scratched to heavily on the bottom, then a replacement drive would also be in order.

I have a Sony DVD RW Dru-720a. When i put a disk in the led light up and it make noise like it trying to open the disk but doesn't.


Hi!

I believe your Sony DVD needs only some cleaning and is not broken.
For cleaning you can use one cleaning disk, a cheap item available not only in computer stores but even in supermarkets. Please follow the instructions delivered toghether with the cleaning disk and I hope you get the desired results.

Good luck!

Cant install program from DVD drive GWA-4164b


First check that your system meets the minimum requirements...ie. you have at least 512mb of ram, CPU of at least 2Ghz Pentium4 or equivalent(with off-board video), and your hard drive has >4GB of free space.....can view full list at:
http://www.amazon.com/Spore-Mac/dp/B000FKBCX4
Is SPORE on a duel layer dvd? If your drive is on the older side, you might try a newer one or you can try the following:
--take out an empty flash drive with
--go to a computer that will read the disk...if you have another computer or u can use someone elses
--put the disk in their computer and if the computer is able to read the disk, then put your flash drive in the computer and copy the disk onto your flash drive...
-y-ou can now try to install the program from your flash drive instead of using the disk...
NOTE: Trying this method wont cause any damage, but if the disk is encripted or if the install software is set to check for the disk during installation, then this may not work, but is worth trying since because a) even if it doesn't work, no harm is done, and b) you wont need to replace your disk drive if it does work.

Xbox 360 rproblems


The motor in the dvd drive isn't spinning properly and the disk doesn't end up spinning so the laser cannot read the disk making the console believe there isn't a disk in there. So what you can do is open the console and then the dvd drive (Voids Your Warranty) and clean the motor with rubbing alcohol and some qtips or send it to MS and have it fixed.

Record to disk


I was having the same problem and tried many different types of DVD-R (16x, 8x, even 4x thining speed might be the problem) finally went to the web page and downloaded the updated program. When I put that download into the disk drive the machine read it and the problem went away. Had not been able to use high speed before that either but it worked after the updated program was in it.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
