The HP DVD 940 does not have any drivers to install. Just plug it in and reboot your PC and the device will be available but you will need CD/DVD recording software. HP shipped the device with Nero v.6 and this is the disk that you need.

Hi, Did it come with a software installation CD? This should have user guide on it? If you don't have the software you could try Nero. Very good software that I'd recommend and very easy to use.

Have you had the blank discs for a while ? If you have a large quantity try another one. If you are copying a "dual layer DVD" make sure that you are using the same type of blank media.

Okay, lets first solve your DVD problem. First of all do you have a DVD burner?If so read on. Next is the burner an internal burner or external burner? If it is an internal burner contact the company for the drivers. If it is an external device see if it came with a CD. If it did install it, if not Add the hardware to your computer with the add hardware wizard. If you need instructions just tell me.

All The Best,

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!

Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
