Re: Super allwrite the writer
Ok so the problem is with dvdplayer not reading the discs right?
Load a disc and listen.Does
the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.
silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a
better word. This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.
could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
accumulating, but its still worth the try.
If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that
guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
eye then fails to read the next track.
If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired or replace your dvd player it is a defective one.

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.
It may be a hardware problem. If it starts ejecting as soon as you switch on the system i.e. before booting into the operating system then it is definitely a hardware problem. Take the drive to the service centre and get it fixed. Or if it happens when you are using windows then it might be a prank program or a virus. Check your running processes and make sure all are right. (You can google the process name and check the results)
could be that the firmware/drivers on your husbands dvd player needs to be updated. different brands and releases of readers/writers will not all write and read in the same format. look at his manual for his computer , note the cd/dvd formats the drive is capable of. Now do the same for your computer, noting the formats available.
Now that you have them both in front of you , you should be able to see a common format. Thats the one you want to select when burning a cd/dvd so that his computer will be able to read the disk.
