Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
When i try burning DVD's everything burns well. But when i try watching
what i burned, it says there is nothing in the DVD. It is just not burning right
even though it says so.
This is a common problem with HP Pavilion series laptops - after a while, the DVD burners burns disks okay (it thinks), but then when you insert the DVD later it does not recognise it as having any content. Very irritating. There are two fixes. One is to update the firmware on the DVD drive (you need to download a bunch of stuff for this), but the other, believe it or not, is to change the writing DVDs you use. Try VERBATIM DVD -Rs, which work on my Pavilion when most others will not. I am guessing this has to do with the wavering power output of the laser in the drive as it gets older, it becomes more picky about what DVDs it will write. So try a different brand of DVDs first.
