SOURCE: Drive is not reconized
Since you have completely removed the drive from the computer, remove the CMOS battery(big watch battery) on the motherboard for about 30 seconds then reinstall the battery, then reboot. This time however, when you press the power button to bootup, you need to start tapping F2 about 2-3 times per second to access the BIOS. If the F2 key does not work, try using F1 or maybe even the Delete key.
BIOS screenshot: yours may look a little different but the concept is the same.
Once in the BIOS go to BOOT or BOOT DEVICE, something to that effect and see if the drive is listed. You will also have to reset the system time while in BIOS so now is a good time to do that as well.
Regardless If it IS or ISNT listed, go ahead and exit the BIOS and choose YES SAVING CHANGES. Your PC will now continue to boot into normal mode. Once in Normal Mode, go ahead and go through Shut Down and once shut down, reinstall the drive and hopefully the PC will recognize it as a new device. Then you can visit the manufacturers website for firmware updates.

email me and i will send the driver in an attachment file.please not though that the hp 740i burner is an internal I D E supported drive not a USB. as long as its a 740 model the driver should work, wether its usb or ide is up to the computer to associate it with.

What software do u use to write DVDs on both PCs...
if they are different then that may be the issue....
dont spoil the DVDs....
try DVD RW disks...that way you can erase them later...
i too have the same DVD writer, not had any issue in either XP or Win7....i have dual boot and have made many movie DVDs using both OS...i use Nero and Power2Go of LG(the install disk that came with the LG DVD writer has this great software...."LG Power tool")
try this tool...it should work...
the inbuilt DVD creator in Win7 has some issues with DVD creation....due to non compatibility of graphics card and display drivers (WDDM)....+ you may not have the correct codec required to burn DVDs.....
get the FFDSHOW codec from google.... and install it...shutdown and restart and then try...
let me have a feedback pls...

Power cable attached, interface cable attached, (Dta cable), and the small audio cable attached, plus computer on, and Windows loaded.
1) Click on Start
2) Right-click on My Computer
3) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list
4) Left-click on the Hardware tab
5) Left-click on Device Manager
6) When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of - DVD/CD-ROM drives
7) Right-click on the name of the optical drive.
8) Left-click on Uninstall
A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's okay. Click on OK.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)
Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on.
You should get a pop-up out of the system tray, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one will follow, "Found XXXX DVD drive"
No? Doesn't work?
Try using another 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.
(The IDE harddrive shown, is just an example of a device that uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Mistakenly referred to as a 'Molex' power cable)
Make sure the interface cable (Data cable) is plugged in tightly.
