Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Burner doesn't act right

I have a hp pavilion ze2000 laptop. The dvd-rw only plays disk that was burned on this system. Any other dvd or cd (burned or store bought) will not play on the system. It has to be burned on the laptop in order for it to work. Also, this laptop will only burn to dvd-rw. It will not let me burn cds at all. I contacted hp and they gave me three suggestions 1)uninstall and reinstall the device using device manager. 2)edit the registry 3)check the status in the service.mcs screen. I did all these things, and none of them work. They won't fix it because it is a week pass the warranty. Telling me I would have to send it off to have it repaired. I telecommute and use my laptop daily to make a living, and I can't afford to send it off anywhere, even for a couple of days.

It seems odd to me that the burner plays and burns dvd-rw but that's it. Please Advise.

How can I find out if my HP Pavilion dv4000 has a DVD burner?


The simple way is to insert an empty disk and try burning the disk with some content. If it burns, that means you have a dvd burner fixed with ur device. Another way which is comparitively complicated is to check the device in the device manager. Right click on My Computer and click on Manage on that. You will get another window opened
In the left navigation pane, you will see device manager. click on that and see your DVD Drive status. If its given as DVD+ RW then you have dvd burner installed in ur system.

I have a hp pavilion dv9700 notebook pc, it can read cd's fine but whenever i try to burn a cd i always encounter some unknown error and it doesnt burn.


it is likely that your dvd is defective. I would suggest removing it and ordering one on ebay once you have the model number. They are fairly easy to remove. one screw holding it in either on the bottom of the laptop or under the keyboard

DVD drive on my HP pavilion 4000 is not working


you need too update the driver for the actual drive itself, not the operating system. if you find the driver on google or the manufacturer website download page and flash it then re-install the driver from the operating system it should work.. hope this helps.... Shawn

My cd burner wont burn


Coleman, Sounds like a faulty drive if it opens and closes. Dontel, just because you have a CDrom drive does not mean that you can burn CD's. Is the drive rewriteable? Does it say RW or rewriteable on the door of the CD unit? Also you can click on Start/Mycomputer and see if the CD drive shows RW.

Can not finalize disk (cd or dvd)


I just burned 6 movies, I noticed that when it goes to finalize, it ejects before finalization is complete. I use FAB Platinum 4.1. I'm going to go into the settings and use Nero burning rom before I remove my Sony and put in my other burner (Plextor) better then Sony I think. I used Nero before and it helped, maybe it will help this time. Why 3 movies did not play, and the others did is beyond me. Dan J
