Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

Actually yes your drive should burn DVD's. Here are the specs http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Toshiba-DVD-R-RW-DRIVE-Toshiba .
You may need to upgrade the firmware. The only update I could find is rather old, but still may be newer than the one you have. Here : http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/HP-Compaq-nx9000-Toshiba-SD-R6252-DVD-RW-Firmware-1A14-100-Download-40220.html

I can copy discs but cannot burn copies.


Ummm, not to sound like a wise a$$, but does is the drive a cd/dvd burner or just a player? And if so, do you have any disc burning software? If you have the software for burning discs installed, and it doesn't work, you may want to consider reinstalling the you burning software, and maybe even the firmware for your cd/dvd drive. Your firmware can be found here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=442915&. Hope this helps.

Burning DVD


Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.

Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).
