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.

How to change faceplate on LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD R/RW with Double Layer Support in hp pavilion


Why would you want to remove the faceplate?

If you have a dvd or cd stuck in the drive straighten out a gem clip (paper clip) and stick it into the hole that is on the faceplate (drive drawer that holds the cd or dvd) and push it while you press the eject button.

Hi there,

If you just google eBay and go to their site, type "HP Pavilion A720N Lightscribe Multi Drive" and you should have a good selection of choices. Simply duplicate the process for the other drive. I would suggest you keep your dealings with members who have a rating of 100% next to their name and you should have no problems. They will also usually be happy to help make sure what they sell you will be 100% compatible.

I buy almost all my replacement parts there for all my customers.

Regards,

Marcus

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:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3548643

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