i looked in the device manager and it says it's working properly
what can i do to fix this? i don't know much about computers so any help will be appreciated - but keep it simple please
what operating system did you replace XP 32bit, XP 64bit? Was the version of Vista you used the 32bit or the 64bit. You may need to go to HP.Com and look for replacement drivers for the DVD. You can also use the windows update to obtain correct drivers for the DVD if they have tested them already. Another option is to go to the manufacturer of the DVD device and see what they list for the driver. Just remember there is a big differance between the 32bit and 64bit drivers. Read on the Vista system you installed and see what level was installed in your system. Regards, rcampsr

Does it show up in your BIOS settings? If so, then go back into BIOS, where the setting for CD/DVD Boot Priority selection is, select the one you have issues with and hit the "Page Up" on your Keyboard so that CD/DVD is the 1st to boot (of CD/DVD's, that is...) then go to Item Boot Priority and make your HDD the 1st Boot item, the CD/DVD you have issues with be your 2nd boot device, and add two more Bootable items or have the last settings say Bootable. Now, restart your machine, let it go through its Boot sequence, now go into Device Manager, find your CD/DVD, open Region,, choose the Region you are in and hit APPLY, the go to Populate- NEXT TO Region, click POPULATE, then close out of everything and try it out. If it still doesn't work, uninstall the drivers, remove the CD/DVD, all cables and write down the Make, Model & Serial# on top of the CD/DVD Drive (SAVE for later!), reinstall. Do ALL I mentioned above, 1st, then try it again. If it still doesn't work, you will have to go to the manuf. HOME website, find your make, model & serial #, they will either have a sftwr. dwnld. or both a Flash sftwr. dwnld. (Desktop and automatic- don't worry, it does all of the work) and the latest sftwr. driver- which willmost likely be found by the Flash program they have you dwnld. So, take your time, be patient and keep your chin up. By the way, is it the Philips Brand? If so, then you WILL have to do ALL of this. I build PC and repair-maintain as a hobby and the Philips, ASUS and SONY are always doing something like this to most of their Image Drives because of specific motherboards... Good Luck and, again, be patient.

Try getting a cd lens cleaner- you may have a dirty laser lens. If you still have problems, you will need to speak with your pc manufacturer's techsupport.
