Question about HP dvd740i DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

HP DVD 740

I have a HP dvd 740, and is about year and half old. It worked great for several months, now I can't play or burn cd's or dvd's. I cannot use in Nero, or other applications. My computer does not even register the dvd burner is installed. I have tried everything from reloading drivers, and installation software, from replacing usb cord. Please help....

Did you go to hp's website and try downloading updated drivers it is possible that when you downloaded a update from microsoft that it voided the old driver rendering your drive unuseable attempt to dfownload update4d software/drivers and go from there.

My HP DVD 740 won't recognize blank CDs


Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

Dvd 740b not reading blank discs to burn on


NO PC stated dang. laptop or desk?
internal DVD drive or external HP solds all 3.
NO OS stated. windows? Windows what>?????
no real DVD partnumber stated only the usless
front bezel number 740.
if yours is marked 2001,, its going to be a big problem. 9 years past HP support.
and all old drive are weak now or scratched optics.
and drives that old were even full of bugs then
(we an link you to 10,000 pages showing that)

why not upgrade it.?
get a new drive and new fresher OS.
windows 10
and a nice new blu-ray burner.
and move on.
or if this rig (PC)
is 2001 why not go to GOODWILL
and buy a 2010 PC< for like $25
and i bet it works 10x better.

Compaq 7600 will not play, burn, cds or dvds


it seems more problem of dvd rom than a update. try to clean the lense with wet tissue. first try to boot your system with bootable cd/dvd. if it booted it means the software gone corrupt otherwise cd gone bad.

Dvd player wont recognize newly burned dvd


Give this a try : write a DVD at 1x speed (lowest speed) and test it on your laptop. If this works ok then either use better media or lower (e.g half) your writing speed........

Hp 740e not reading blank dvd discs


Don't wanna sound like a Doomsayer but I think it has burned its last burn...

Try to clean it first, if it still doesn't work, then it is time for a new one.

Had a similar experience and we found out that the drive had conked out.
