HP DVD writer 400c

Hey there ...
i seem to have a problem with my dvd writer. the drive was installed in my PC when i bought it, just so you know that there aren't any installation probs.
it doesn't recognise any formatted discs, CD/DVD/DVD+R/CD+R ...
i have used the PC doctor, but i keep getting error messages for me to insert formatted discs, but that's the problem, my drive doesn't recognise any of them.
i've tried system restore as well ... no luck there.
online compac help .. same thing.
any help will be much appreciated.
thank you.

    Unable to write on DVD-R using DVD/CD-ROM


    Yes, if you have a DVD writer installed, you should be able to write to DVDs. What happens when you try? If you look at the DVD writer in the Device Manager, does it have any sort of error or warning? Do you have the correct driver installed for the DVD writer?

    USB DVD ROM no detected


    You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.
