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.
I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
4x DVD-/+R DL
so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...
you most certainly have a damaged dvd drive... you should change it. http://www.pc-mob.com/images/dvdrw.jpg
the cost here in greece is 40 - 50 euros for a laptop dvd-rw depending of the connection (sata or ide).
the good news is that you will not have to take apart your laptop to take the bad drive out but only unscrew one... screw.
take the laptop with you when you go to a hardware shop and they will change it for you right away with no extra cost.
also note that ANY brand will do (sony, lg, nec etc) the plastic front cover of the old dvd can be taken out and put to the new drive.
Could be a bad drive, or bad software. First try new CD burning
software, such as Nero [ http://www.nero.com ] or Alcohol 120
If the problem persists with multiple programs, you've most likely got a bad drive, and should replace it.
It's *possible* that the media is also the culprit. Some types of
media (Sony, Maxell, etc) end up making more coasters or not reading at
all. I've had great success with Verbatim over the years - zero
coasters and plays universally in any CD/DVD drive I put them in
(laptop, home DVD, minivan, etc)
