Question about HP LightScribe dvd640i (DVD640I) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
Hi i installed my HP 1040i dvd burner on my pc with window xp home, but
the burner wont read HP DVD+R blank dvd. It will only recognize the
dvds as blanks Cd's.
I already tried to install it on two different xp pc and wouldn't work. But when i installed it on my Vista pc it worked just fine.
So the error is with window xp but i do not know how to correct this. Is there and drivers i would need? Ide driver? Please help.
I tried updating the drivers through window update but is said there up to date the driver's date is 7/1/2001 all the ide connector are firmly in place and the burner is on master jumper.
I also have the problem too

I have the same problem, but it uses the hp dvd 1040d driver instead of the 1040i driver

If it is still new return it and buy a better product. This cheap drive package didn't include a sound cable, didn't include necessary software to play movies, didn't include any drivers.
I'm going to stick with Sony and NEC.

There are no drivers on the HP site for it.

I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00001705&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3422492&lang=en
