    most the time it won't read a disk unless its a software disk and when i go to burn a vob file or just about anything else it gets to 10 % and stops but never really burns anything to disk, then the drive will keep spinning the disk like the drive is doing some thing what would be its major malfunction??????

It would sound like a buffer under run issue, in plain engluish set your drive to record at a SLOWER ( MUCH ) rate and see if you still have the problem also you need to use GOOD quality media, cheap disks act like cheap disks buy good dvd r

You do not mention what type of blank DVD you are using. My personal experience is that many brands of blank DVD-R's have problems in DVD burners that are not the same brand. To a lesser extent, this also happens with DVD+R's.

The reason is that because of patents involving the technologies each DVD disc and DVD burner manufacturer has, the dye formulation of each manufacturers discs varies greatly. If this does not complicate matters enough- laser power, bandwidth, and recording schemes vary between the DVD burner manufacturers.

The safest route is to use DVD media manufactured by the same company as your burner- in your case, Sony. If you can locate blank Sony DVD+R's, they will give you the best results.

If you cannot locate blank Sony media, I have personally had the best results with TDK, Ativa, and Memorex DVD+R's and I avoid using DVD-R's because I end up throwing at least half of them away due to bad copies.

Hp dvd740 doesn't read any blank discs..


you're starting to experince laser pick up failure, maybe starting to weakened. Try using a cleaner first and it could be dirty nor with carbon deposits. If still the same then i dont know of any shop repairing DVD drives, it will be up for replacement only.

When I've seen this problem it's been a bad laser. Most burners have separate lasers for the DVD and CD functions, and one of yours has probably malfunctioned. You should be eligible for an RMA if the warranty is still in effect.
