Error The driver is not ready

After installing an HP dvd 1040i 20 x Multiformat DVD writer the Roxio sofware tells me that the driver is not ready. The power cable must be securely installed, and I tried my best to secure the data cable into the back of the drive. There are apparently only two cables, the power and the data. Also once that is done, the tray will not release the disc.

What have I done improperly? I am a novice and have opened the pc twice so far in trying to solve this problem with no success.

Is there a blank disk in your DVD writer? Maybe you are trying to write on a non-writable DVD.

Premature failure of this drive appears to be a widespread issue. I have joined in a support thread at HP and encourage you to do the same:

Hp 1040i xp problem


I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00001705&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3422492&lang=en
