    Oh dear! HP support are useless I agree. Unfortunately it's probably a hardware failure. Assuming your computer is within warranty, probably easiest to dig out the paperwork for it and have it sent back to HP.

    One thing to try first though - can the BIOS see the CD drive? (Press F2 I think it is at startup to get into the BIOS screens)

  • Is it full dead, not reading or what's happening.....

What is the Lifespan of CD Drives? I have an HP dv7 that seems like the cd rom is not communicating well with the machine. Could it be software related?


Burning CD-R or DVD-R shortens the life cycle of any CD-R or DVD-R drive, while reading is generally. If you have burnt 1 disc per day, it is not surprising your DVD-RW drive is worn out.

1 detail to take into consideration: if you use ReWritable media, change them from time to time. I thought my DVD-Recorder was dead as I got a lot of non responding issue with DVD+RW media (while my computer had no problem to read these media), and finally getting rid off the old media and taking newer DVD+RW media has given the DVD-Recorder 3 more years.

Hp pavilion dv9000 cd rom not burning dvd-s. cd burning ok, dvd reading ok


you need to state what operating system you use.

but if cd-rom is burning cd's and not dvd's this is usually problem with software, you need to state what software you are using to burn dvd's as well, seem like you do not choose correct driver in your burn software settings.

Fails to finish copying and burning cd/dvd


If you have changed the writer, the operating system, and the burning software, I would suggest changing the make of the DVDs first. If that doesnt change anything, would be looking at a faulty motherboard to be honest.

Why doesn't my HP pavilion laptop write to dvd+rw discs? I'm not very computer literate but the tray for the drive indicates that it accepts this type of media and yet it fails to recognise it when I try...


Hi, depending on the age of your laptop, some dvd writers will only write to either DVD+ or DVD- discs although they will all READ both (how confusing is that!) Try using DVD- discs - this may solve this problem.

Cant play a dvd on laptop hp pavilion dv4000


I assume it will not play Store bought or rental dvd's.

Try buying a cleaning disc and see if that helps. Other than that the drive would need taken apart and cleaned to see if that fixes it.

It could also be an electronic failure, in which case it would be cheaper to replace the drive.

Hope that helps...
