That might be your problem. HP is using the cheapest hardware it can get, and hardware is different from one computer to the next, even on the same model.
maybe try a different dvd-rom.

I can only comment on the Compaq CQ70-116ea laptop which I have just...


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

Windows XP Upgrade


completely different operating systems actually... as far as i know that upgrade would not be possible... a full install would be the way to go... back up all your data first.

the beauty of 64 bit tho is it basically allows you to add unlimited memory to your computer.

Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i


Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.

Compaq armada e500 dvd rom doesn't work


Try cleaning the lense using a lense cleaning disk.

Unfortunately it sounds as the drive is on the way out :(

Dvd are harder for it to read than cds so they are normally the first thing to stop working.

Dvd/cd drives dont require drivers as they are plug and play (aka plug and play!! :)

Best not to update the firmware as if it goes wrong then the drive will be dead.

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...


yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
