Question about HP DVD940e Burner
I am suddenly unable to print the label on the DVDs. I get a message saying "waiting for the drive to become ready". The drive is ready. Then I get a message that says "Disc infor encoded in the middle of the disc could not be read". I am using the HP Lightscribe DVDs. It won't print on any of them. I have never had a problem printing before so I don't know if the unit is defective. It's not a year old yet.
Okay, this may seem obvious, but i had the same problem, when it dawned on me, the label side has to be down. It's like when you think your lawnmower's broken, when it's actually only out of gas

This is a common problem when you ordered your discs from the internet. When your discs are shipping, they're spending several days in the heat. The heat damages the read surface. All shipped discs are going to give you problems, but if you just consistently push the disc back into the drive and repeat the command, it should eventually work.
In the future, whenever possible, always buy your LightScribe discs from a local store. They're unfortunately getting harder and harder to find locally, and more expensive due to the rising demand and falling supply, but it's the only way to prevent this problem

Best thing is to claim the warranty for it as not a year old yet but before doing this try a different supplier of disks. or use a cleaning disk see if this helps you could always reinstall the drivers as maybe a software issue.
