I recently installed a dvd writer for my neighbor. they used a top brand dvd-r / rw and never had any problem. but after the new install they had the same problem . after visiting the manufacturer's website we found that that certain brand of dvd were recommended. check the manufacturers site for dvd recommendations.

Hp pavilion dv4-1225dx wont read discs

Insert the DVD burner software that comes with your SATA burner. This will have the driver or go to Windows Updates and see if the driver software is there for you to download. The problem could be a region set or it is not populated.
I have had to set my region setting to 1 which is the US then populate it. And make sure the right driver was installed for my device if you do not have the driver disc or files go to and download it from the support and drivers section of the manufacturers web site it will be there. Make sure that you have the right info typed in when hunting drivers.
If it is a third party addition you can also get the driver files from Lightscribe they will also have the drivers that is about all you do. John

I moved my office and different computor no disc

You can download the drivers for free from the hp support website. If your computer has windows vista, you can download from this link:
Vista driver
If it is Windows XP, then download from this link:
XP Driver
Select the file that says HP Officejet Pro Basic Driver, it is much smaller than the full Software and will work just fine.

Good Luck to you.

and buy a 2010 PC< for like $25
and i bet it works 10x better.

Error message/cannot burn cd in cd burner

This seems to me to be an AutoPlay issue, where the default action for blank CD-media is to format it, and might be a feature of your burning software. To resolve this, you could try the following:
  1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking AutoPlay.
  2. In the list next to the device or type of disc, click Ask me every time.

Burner does not finalize discs

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

  • Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Windows Vista Starter
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Windows Vista Home Basic
  • Windows Vista Enterprise
  • Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Business
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition

After you install Windows Vista on a computer that uses an SiI Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment (PATA) chip from Silicon Image, the computer does not recognize an attached optical drive as a drive that supports recording. Therefore, you cannot use the computer to burn CDs or DVDs.
This problem occurs because the SCSIport driver does not populate the correct number of bytes for an IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY Request Packet (IRP) when the device does not return a correct serial number.
Service pack information loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows Vista or download the following Hotfix.
