Question about HP Computers & Internet
HP 300i/NEC ND-1100A 4X DVD+R/RW Firmware
When I put a DVD in the drive nothing happens, if I try to open the drive manually it opens to a blank page that asks if I want to write files to this drive, It will read Cds fine and when I go to properties it says ''This device is working properly'' . Under device type it says ''DVD/CD-ROM drives'', but under manufacturer it says (Standard CD-ROM drives). A little info that may be helpful is that (My Pc is a HP Pavillion a350n and I was having this problem and a few others with the original boot disks for this PC, so I purchased a windows XP pro OS and did a clean install, the DVD drive came preinstalled on this PC. I have set my BIOS to factory default I have uninstalled the DVD drive and restarted so that it reinstalled, still the same problem, I ran Tweaknow reg cleaner, it found problems but not with this. I know it almost has to be a software conflict but have no idea how to find the conflict. Please is there anyone who can help
No PC stated, just PC, 1981 to now, wow, must we guess PCs now?
nobody on earth can guess what DVD DISC is in your hands.
what are you attempting to do.
what OS? is there.
XP sure. on what machine.
XP is dead OS, so many driver (vast) do not exist for it or old PCs
leave the registry alone, please.
it read CDs of unstated types (vast)
the DVD may not work in XP, ever think of that?
DVD come IN vast forms here are some
Store bought movies, (are you watching a movie, you never said)
data DVD, like windows 7 comes with.
DVD-R or DVD+R or DVD-RW, made by others, can be anything and is VAST possibles here. many old DVD can NOT do
all DVD recorder-able formats, vast cant.
next time post what that DVD is in your aND ITS LABEL
AND WHERE you got it, WALmart, movie counter?
or?where? from wrong REGION ,say from Brazil to USA>?oops.
then tell full spec name of PC
and OS, is XP with all service packs, OOPS
or virus infected as all XP are..... its a virus magnet
is said pc connected to internet so PNP caN find the correct driver automatically.
now my guess , wrong media inserting in to old DVD drive.
if burning DVD-r
try running IMGBURN, a free program, i even burn DVD-blue ray
with it to backup all my data. never lost data for 50 years.
have it all. archived,

SOURCE: HP DVD 1040i
on the back of the hardware are jumpers
mine are located next to where the ribbon plugs in
there are 3 jumpers- like this : : :
the jumper must be on "cable" ( printed above post )
just move the jumper and reinstall
Now xp can find the 10401
I did it...it works

Common problem associated with XP SP3. After updating to SP3 there's a probem with CD/DVD recognition. Here's the Microsoft patch below:
Best of Luck!

SOURCE: XP can't find ND-1100A drive
Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.
Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.
Hope this helps FixYa,

Okay, this problem is easy.
First of all, check to see what type of media the drive supports in DVD. Is it +R or -R.
Next, not all BIOSes recognize DVD drives. From the picture you displayed there, it looked like a laptop DVD drive.
Make sure that the BIOS does support it by going to the manufacturer's website and look at the replacement parts.
If it does support this type of drive, but not from the initial product, you may need to upgrade the BIOS so it can recognize the drive.
This should solve your problem.
