    Yes it is a lightscribe and I don't see why that would have anything to do with why it won't recognize a dvd in the drive.

    I have the same problem. My HP dvd740 external drive use to work fine. Now, my hp pavilion zv5240us with XP does not even see the drive. It tells me that there is no driver but I can not reload the driver because it does not see the drive. How do I resolve this problem - other than throwing away this hp dvd door stop?

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

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.
