Question about HP EXT DVD BURN HP|DVD740E LS BK R (DVD740EBK) Burner
I have a HP 740e external dvd burner and recently it has not recognized blank discs for burning. I thought maybe it was the brand of discs (windata dvd-r) but about a month ago I had several successful burns using discs from the same package. I have tried the firmware update from HP's website but to no avail. I am using Windows XP Pro, service pack 2 and neither Nero or DVD decrypter are working as they both state that blank media not present.
Any solutions, advice, strategies? Or is it time to toss the drive (about 2 years old)?
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.
