Uninstall in devise manager,reinstall.
if doesnt work unplug data cable to writer, startup and make sure the drive is un installed.If vista go to my computer right click on drive select properties select hardware double click on drive in window select driver, select uninstall check the box to remove drivers from computer perm. then turn off computer re attach data transfer cable to drive and restart.your drivers sound like they are corrupt and if they are not removed from system the os will continue to install same corrupt driver.you may need system disk or just go to hp for new drivers after uninstall

Have you tried reinstalling the dvd drivers?
I would try that and see if it works.
also make sure you set to the proper region for your dvd's
you can only change the region a couple times so go easy.

My computer wont read my cd


Hi,

I suspect that you are using a CD writer and you have possibly inserted a blank DVD into your CD writer. Make sure you have a blank CD inserted instead of a blank DVD.

Let me know if this is your problem.
Best wishes,

Make sure you have a DVD-rw reader or writer. Then try another DVD disc. Some DVR readers/writers can be finnicky about the brand of DVD they will read.

Hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's. Can't record DVD - keeps asking for blank disc when it's already inserted


What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.
