No model HP drive stated, no link to it, fail.
NO OS stated, so all Answers are IMPOSSIBLE.
A720n tells me only what hardware can be there.
nothing else.
the huge 40pin rear connector on the rear.
that iS PATA drives.
so buy a PATA drive.
new pata drives are rare now, and $100 new.


used are $5 a pop and a PIG IN A POKE SACK. (lotto)

now answer#2 , new hat.
ive done this vast times,
go to newegg, buy a PCI addin card, called SATA
it then ask my OS who are you in system link in Control panel
it tells me , omg your running XP, only 1% run XP in the usa.

if you tell the OS you run i can give you a good answer. what to buy and all choices.

i the find a SATA (PCI card) supports my OS,
VISTA newer, Vista btw dropped MS/HP support last month.
I then plug in the new PCI card
and the NEW DVD SATA drive to my new card.
I also had to by a PATA power cable to SATA power cable adapter too..
I load the "comes with" driver, and bam, I now have SATA up and running, did this vast times, back in the day...,
this is what makes Desk tops shine,, addin cards of vast types.
Sata began live in 2003, and many PC the next year had the chips. 2004 more and 2005 lots more.
Evolution is real.



you have 3 choicesfind a not dead PATA used drive, good luck there.buy the PCI-SATA card and any SATA drive on earth.buy used PC 10 years or newer, and put this PC in the landfill. Goodwill (tm) has vast newer PC for near $0

    Lightcribe is top burner, for labels.
    2004 to 2013, now dead tech.


    but if on fleabay.
    i do see some used PATA
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-DVD650-LightS...


    the HP DVD640 is the real name, lightscribe does not mean anything in this context.
    This 640 can work if not running stinking XP>


    12 years old it is.
    most there listed as IDE is PATA
    just avoid SATa with sata card updgrade

  • Anonymous Jun 21, 2017

    is put the PC in the land fill.
    never spend cash on PATA PCs. ever.
    junk it, turn it into a flower pot.

    or rip the mobo out and put in a new ASUS mobo.
    P5A99x-evo, is a great choice.
    but needs a new PSU, too, and all SATA GEAR

SOURCE: can some one help find me a lightscribe dvd

Hi there,

If you just google eBay and go to their site, type "HP Pavilion A720N Lightscribe Multi Drive" and you should have a good selection of choices. Simply duplicate the process for the other drive. I would suggest you keep your dealings with members who have a rating of 100% next to their name and you should have no problems. They will also usually be happy to help make sure what they sell you will be 100% compatible.

I buy almost all my replacement parts there for all my customers.

Regards,

Marcus

How to change faceplate on LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD R/RW with Double Layer Support in hp pavilion


Why would you want to remove the faceplate?

If you have a dvd or cd stuck in the drive straighten out a gem clip (paper clip) and stick it into the hole that is on the faceplate (drive drawer that holds the cd or dvd) and push it while you press the eject button.

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.

HP PAVILION a6000n with lightscribe supermulti drive / cd writer---windows vista :: does not recognize dvd disc when inserted


If it fails to recognize and CD or DVD that's inserted you will need to reinstall the driver for your LightScribe. The factory drivers for your system can be found here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3548643

If it fails to recognize just one CD or DVD, chances are that the disc is defective.
