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.

I have a hp pavilion dv7 1243-cl the cd-dvd drive reads but will not write to either a cd or dvd.

I'm assuming your using XP, but are you using burning software? Have you tried any other brand of cd/dvd. I you've tried these things, more than likely it's your burner.

Best DVD burner

I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
  • 8x DVD-/+R
  • 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
  • 4x DVD-/+R DL
  • 5x DVD-RAM
  • 24x CD-R
  • 24x CD-RW
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 can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all 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 read about and use your burner...

HP Laptop burner can not find empty CD

you most certainly have a damaged dvd drive... you should change it.
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.

The cd burner on my hp laptop doesn't work properly.

There could be are various reason's for there.

1. The CD you insert is not blank or re-writetable
2. The CD is blank but its not the correct format (CD, DVD)
3. And worse case is the CD Drive is not a burner.

Hope this helps.

Cd burner will not burn

Could be a bad drive, or bad software. First try new CD burning software, such as Nero [ ] 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)

Good luck - hope this helped :)

Dvd burner problems with HP Pavillion DV9429us

Try lowering the burn speed of your drive by using nero suite. I have the same problem as yours, then after using nero drive speed, my dvd drive is ok.
