Oh mind you that other computers or systems are only designed for Windows XP and the Drivers that are installed on that machine are XP compartible. Now that you are using windows 7, it could be an issue that Windows 7 operating system does not recognize the device being your CD drive.. You need to go on the HP official website and look for the drivers (the whole packge ) for your computer model and check if Windows 7 operating system is compartible with the machine. Otherwise the solution is to go back to Windows XP...

OS is Windows XP Professional, my cd drive cannot read the data stored on a DVD disk. My driver is HL-DT-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4482. Thank you


Windows XP is no longer supported, you should up-grade to Win 7 or buy a new computer. As for the DVD that it can't read, try it on a friend's computer and see if it works. If it does, your DVD/CD drive is defective or there is a software driver issue which means you can't receive support from Micorsoft.

It sounds like your drive is having issues, you can always install windows 7 from a flash drive (so long as your computer supports booting to one). Instructions on setting this up are here: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/ You will need to do this from a computer with a working DVD drive to transfer the info to a flash drive.

Yes, you can no longer downgrade, the issue is drivers and hardware. XP cannot run the new hardware. In the early days you could get drivers, but now most downgrades will lack lots of functionality. Reinstall Win 7, it works very well, once your files are PROPERLY placed.

The first thing to do is get the DVD drive to work as Win 7 is a DVD. If your CD player plays CDs then maybe a new drive is required before you can go anywhere.
External DVD drives are £20 ish so not too bad.
Hope that helps.

Can the "bad" CD-R be properly read on some other computer?
If not, then the disk itself is the problem.

Otherwise, changing from Vista to XP does _NOT_ produce the type of problems that you are reporting.

My disk drive is not working i am trying to down load a new program and when i put the disk in it will read it and then error appears


Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.

Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.

Sorry by bad english.

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
