Dvd burner dvd+rw and dvd r problem

Hey Bruce - In your first post you said DVD+RW works which would make sense. In your comment you said that DVD-RW works which would not make sense. You've got to be sure. I'll you what it is supposedly direct from HP/Compaq:

Your PC will " supposedly do the following":

CD, DVD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW. These as I said are straight from the horses mouth. You can check for yourself.

PLEASE RATE FIXED if I answerd your question or please don't rate at all. It only hurts our ratings. I've done what I can for you. Thanks Bruce. If you need more help just add a comment and Ill be happy to assist you further.

Compaq CD Drive

It appears that the CD drive has failed. My DVD drive did that and I ended up replacing it. They have become fairly inexpensive. You can replace your CD drive with a DVD/RW drive for about $30. I like to use to find cheap computer components. Just check back regularly and a DVD/RW drive should show up.
