Question about HP PAVILION A6230N DESKTOP PC

1 Answer

LightScribe DVD SuperMulti Drive/CD-Writer won't read disks. It has been cleaned and passes all tests. Has read these disks before, but file will not load from disk.

I have a HP Pavilion a6230n with the LightScribe DVD SuperMulti Drive/CD-Writer; when I load disk, it tries to read it, but the files won't load. It has read these disks before, but now it won't. I have cleaned the laser lens and run a diagnostic. The diagnostic says everything tests 100%. What is the problem?

    Check to see if the drive read any discs. Music cd's, movie dvd's, regular cd-r's etc.

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.

HP PAVILION a6000n with lightscribe supermulti drive / cd writer---windows vista :: does not recognize dvd disc when inserted


If it fails to recognize and CD or DVD that's inserted you will need to reinstall the driver for your LightScribe. The factory drivers for your system can be found here:

If it fails to recognize just one CD or DVD, chances are that the disc is defective.
