Hp dvd740e few issues

Hello to u all experts,
maybe you can help me... I got this gr8 DVD burner HP DVD 740e, and it all worked gr8 in the beginning the burning and the light scribe.

Problem #1. burner is not recognized with my CPU, then i have to disconnect and re-connect to the CPU to be recognized.

Problem #2. once i get it to burn it will start and finish but the disk will show as empty like nothing has recorded. I use Nero, Ashampoo, Power ISO, and Magic ISO, winavi, VSO, Roxio, for converting & Burning programs but nothing seames to work.

Problem #3. I have used your solution for burning it slow, and it did show me that burning is in progress but nothing applied and after 8 min on 360 MB file, the computer posted an error on burning status.

I know buying a new one is always the better answer, can some really help me out here...???

Thanks,
JMNY

With all those problems, especially #2 and #3, you won't be able to fix it. You can only replace it with a different one. Sorry your DVD player is Dead.

My Windows 7 does not recognise the dvd writer 740e


i understand completely. i have the same external device. if yours is an external device, simply unplug the power that supplies the dvd rom, while your system is running. and it will detect, but once you shut down and reboot you wil again need to turn the power off and then on again on the HP DVD 740e this is not to annoying at least it works right? well it does for me in my win 7 64 bit home premium. i have not found any driver or other solution. i just power off and on the DVD ROM and it then detects, sorry i cant help any more.

Hp 740e Burner


"Nero only recognizes the drive as 4x dvd+/-r..." ...
  • 4x for which media format (e.g., CD-RW, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, etc.)?
  • Have you had/used Nero during the entire year you've used this drive?
  • Is it ACTUALLY burning at a slower speed than before that you know of, or is it only the Nero indicator that you're going by?
If you've updated both the driver(s) and device firmware, there's nothing further that can be done in that department.

Both these sources (1) http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters?DVDnameidnew=1336&orderby=Price (2) http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-DVD-740E-R-16X-External-USB-LightScribe-DVD%B1RW-Drive_W0QQitemZ270319806919QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20081219?IMSfp=TL081219114003r29076 corroborate each other with the following speed spec's for your drive:

4x DVD-RDL
6x DVD-RW
8x DVD+RW
8x DVD+RDL
16x DVD+R
16x DVD-R
24x CD-RW (up to 32x)
40x CD-R

Are you getting at-or-near these speeds with your specific applicable disk media (i.e., DVD+RW @ 8x)? In other words: Make sure you are comparing apples-to-apples.

NERO TOOLS:
Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at http://www.cdspeed2000.com/download.html. They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDiscSpeed_41140.zip
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDriveSpeed_300.zip

HOWEVER, since you say you have Nero, you're likely to have them installed and available already. Perform an objective test using "Nero DiscSpeed" to determine the actual burn speed of you drive.

Good luck, and please post back to let me know how things work out, or if you have any further questions.

Hp 1040i xp problem


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

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...

Hp 740e not reading blank dvd discs


Don't wanna sound like a Doomsayer but I think it has burned its last burn...

Try to clean it first, if it still doesn't work, then it is time for a new one.

Had a similar experience and we found out that the drive had conked out.

Hd dvd 740e


Try uninstalling the reinstalling your drive, if after you do this you still have this issue try using the disks in another burner to see if they can read it, typicly this problem is due to two things . Either your drivers are out of date or you are using cheapie disks
