Question about HP DVD1040i 20x Super Multiformat Dvd Writer, Internal Burner

1 Answer

HP dvd1040i only recognizes discs for a few minutes.

The drive is always recognized, and it will read discs for a few minutes after startup, but after a few minutes it just stops even recognizing there's a disc in it. I think that it reads consistently for a few minutes after startup invalidates the dirty/broken lens idea, otherwise I'd guess it was that.

DVD drive read/burn problem


From the description the new DVD driver is defective and should be returned if still under warranty. The only concern that I have is the replacement you got is identical to the original and that it is not a aftermarket product, because they don't have the same specifications as the original.

The cd drive won't recognize that there is a disc in place.


Try cleaning the optical drive lens with alcohol.Try deleting the CD/DVD drive entry from the device manager and let Windows re-detect the optical drive on startup. It will reinstall the driver.If none of these helps, probably you’ll have to replace the drive.

HP DVD1040 STOPPED RECOGNIZING DISCS


This is normally due to a lens issue. If you have tried a cleaning disc (one with iso-propyl alcohol solution) and it still does not work, you can also remove the cover, and use a qtip (ear bud) with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the lens.
Mine for example the lens was clean, but a cat hair was stuck in such a way that it interfered with the laser, but would not come lose. a simple tweeze, hair gone problem gone.
Unfortunately if the two cleaning steps yield no results, it is better to replace the drive, as repairing it cost more in time and labor than to replace.
Hope this helps.

Will not recognize a blank cd or dvd inserted into the e drive. will read a data disc inserted into the same drive.


Hello
Are you using windows media player or roxio or any burning software?
You will need burning software for blank disc to be recognized.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to copy a ps3 game to my computer,but the dvd drive in my computer wont read the disc.Any ideas


The playstation 3 game format is in Blu-ray... but also a special format of Blu-ray to keep people from making illegal copies of the disc. Also the disc is formatted in a way that a PC will not recognize the disc unless the drive has been modified illegally. A standard DVD drive will not recognize a Blu-Ray disc.
