My computer wont read my cd


Hi,

I suspect that you are using a CD writer and you have possibly inserted a blank DVD into your CD writer. Make sure you have a blank CD inserted instead of a blank DVD.

Let me know if this is your problem.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Will not recognize a blank cd or dvd inserted into the e drive. will read a data disc inserted into the same drive.


Hello
Are you using windows media player or roxio or any burning software?
You will need burning software for blank disc to be recognized.

Hope this helps.

When I try to burn a CD, the system keeps telling me to insert a blank CD even though there is one in the drive. I have tried different blank CD's, same thing. However, it does read blank DVD's and CD's...


Sometimes, certain drives have problems writing on certain brands. Also, some drives have problems writing on dvd rw. If you try using others and it doesnt work, then your drive needs to be replaced.

Brand new hp pavilion dv2839tx entered pass word & it`s not reconised,try to reset password,informed to use floppy disc or usb flash drive & try again,i have done this with blank floppy disc,still...


Let me help you with that concern!

First, the computer asks you for a Password Reset Disk right? And then you inserted a BLANK Floppy Disk since you dont have a Flash Drive. But here is the thing, the computer is asking you a "Password Reset Disk" and in order for you to do that is, after you created a password into your account at your computer, the computer suggests to create a reset disk by inserting a floppy drive or a flash drive. And what the computer is doing is copying the password data into the floppy drive or to a flash drive. So inserting a blank floppy drive will do nothing on recovering your password. You need a password reset disk, but then again i think you did created a reset disk, so what you can do is to Reinstall the Operating System. I know your files are important but that is the only last resource that we can do. My suggestion is just back up all your files by inserting you hard drive into another laptop or you can just call drivesavers. You may visit their website at www.drivesavers.com and this is only a tip if still want to backup your files. But the resolution is still reinstalling the operating system.

Thanks!
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!

ATAPI DVD A DH16A1L not reading blank dvd's


This is a firmware issue that I am also having the same problem with. The only real solution is to purchase a new drive temporarily, since the DH16A1L firmware update is precariously a "Vista Only" update. If you have XP or Windows 7, you are SOL, thanks to the lovely folks at HP.

This was my business' last purchase of any HP hardware, we have had enough of the fried laptop mobos and issues as such. I hope everyone follows suit
