I did not find a "Quick Installation Guide" inside of my box.
I want to install and operate my DVD writer correctly right from the beginning. I have never used a DVD writer in the past.
I need to obtain a "Quick Installation Guide" or any product manual that is available gfor this product.

If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.
It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.
male sure the laptop has teh burn dvd capability cause it can be just a cd writer and dvd rom ..and in this case it is explainable why its giving the error .. If you are sure you have a dvd writer ...than be sure you select it in the options of the burning software you use.. and 3rd ... if your writer is corrupted ..try to go to device manager ..(click right on compuer select properties..and device manager..) in there look for dvd writer...click right on it ..and select update driver...If the disk is not present click right on computer ..and select scan for hardware changes...If the writer is deactivated this will bring it back ..Than update its driver and be sure it's not in yellow cause this means the driver is not the correct one .. If no action will correct this ..and still makes the same ..than I suggest to reinstall the operation system ..and this way you will eliminate the possibility that a bug corrupted it ...and in case it still not working you have to consider replacing it ..but not before trying a operation system reinstall ..cause there are viruses that attack the disk drive's driver ..and this is the only fix .
If you have purchased the box copy of Quick Heal then the Product Key (or Serial
Number) will be pasted on the User Guide or inside the box. If you have
purchased the software online, then you will find the Product Key in the email
confirming the order.
You can also obtain the Product Key along with the Installation Number using the
installed Quick Heal software. Just perform the following steps:
1. Click Start -> Programs -> Quick Heal AntiVirus -> Quick Heal AntiVirus to
open Quick Heal AntiVirus.
2. Click About on the left side of the main window.
3. Click the License Details button.
4. The License Details window opens. Note down the Product Key mentioned in
the License To: frame.
The term Quick Heal AntiVirus in the steps mentioned earlier is a generic term
and can be replaced by the respective product you own.
If you have any problem, contact them firstname.lastname@example.org
Please find the key. The key may be written on the packaging, inside the packaging or on the installation cd/dvd. It may in the literature(paper/booklet/quick guide) that comes with it. I'm sure if you search well you will be able to find it.
Should be IDE cable...IDE interface according to the specs. You computer has IDE connections so the drive should work.
HP DVD1040i Lightscribe 20X DVD Burner/Black/Retail
Mfr Part #
Internal DVD ±R/±RW drive with DVD±R up to 20X, double-layer recording, DVD-RAM, and LightScribe direct disc labeling
what operating system? If windows XP, be sure you are the administrator of the machine. What is the error message? Try to uninstall the the previous device driver of the cdrom and have it automatically detect the new drive...then retry the suite installation. pls give feedback
i would begin by making sure that you have updated drivers installed for that drive. Even though it's new out of the box, there could be issues with the factory drivers that have been corrected. Please follow the instructions here for XP or Vista
You can check for new Sony drivers here
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.
It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.
