Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I have just installed a new DVD drive in my computer. It was sent from overseas with no instructions, works great reading DVD's but won't recognise a blank DVD. I can't remember where to look on my computer to see what type of DVD i should be buying. I am assuming I have bought the wrong one This is not letting me write the type of Computer I have which is a HP Pavillion a450a
It sounds as if you have purchased a DVDROM drive and not a DVDRW, or the drive if it is a rewritable is faulty.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps you
