Reinstall cd/dvd rom software. First delete the stuff already on the pc. Then reinstall latest drivers from device manager or manufacture's website. To get to device manager, control panel, maintenance & performance and device manager.

It should not change. The device list will only display whats on your pc. I would try reinstalling the drivers for the CD/RW drive. make sure the new one your installed says CD/RW on the front of the drive and that its not just a DVD rom..

I'm trying to burn a music CD on my new HP computer and can't get the source disk to download to my hard drive. I'm an old dude and did print out the HP instruction sheet-still confused.

Hello rhughes612,

You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.

This is the instruction of CD to CD:

1. Insert the source disk
2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application.
Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive.
3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK

Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I cannot record music on my CD-R from my windows player

Try a different brand. Make sure you do not let auto-run format your disc (for non-rewritable discs) when it is loaded into the burner. I turned off auto-run due to this. RW discs can be formatted.

I hope this helps.

(I've seen different DVD manufacturing processes give a string of "coasters" on a given burner but CDs can have the issue.)

Cannot Burn (HP ProBook 4510s CDDVDW TS-L633M)

Yes no store bought brand is setup to be great quality. You will have to find either archive quality discs so that they have high compatibility and quality ratings or just by small amounts of brands till you find one that will work for you.
