Question about HP (344542-005) DVD Drive
My week old dvd burner has stoppped burning dvd for me. It's able to read blank cd's, data and video dvds, but not DVD-R's. I've tried a mutitude of ideas 1) Unistalling the Drive, with restart 2) unistalling the primary IDE channel, with restart 3) unistalling any dvd related programs, with restart, reinstall 4 )3 different types of dvd-rs, sony, memorex, maxell 5) registry cleaning, with restart I know that windows doesn't write dvds in explorer, but this effects any dvd burning software... I'm at my wits end... any ideas? I purchase this HP unit (ebay) which was shipped from taiwan, and I have never been able to burn DVDs. it can read dvds but when I insert a blank dvd it show it as a full dvd.

After reading all that you have done I see the only thing you haven't done is change, upgrade or install the DVD Decoder, Excellent decoders are Roxio, Cyberlink (known as PowerDVD) , and the best for the money NVIDIA. Hope this clears your problem
Good Luck =)
