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.

I have a DVD writer installed in my Compaq SR1230NX PC, but I can't figure out how to burn a DVD. When I pull up the options, it looks like I can only write CDs. I am not too good with PCs.


Unfortunately most all computers shipped with a DVD burner installed do not come with actual DVD burning software. XP Home nor any XP format come with them built in either. I can only suggest you buy a burning program such as Roxio Creator 2009 or the like.
I hope that helps.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

HP external 1040 dvd writer


The Nero software came with InCD, which is a program that allows you to drag files directly onto the CD without having to run CD burning software. It's a novel idea, but I don't think it works all that well. If you're not planning to use it, then uninstall it. If you can't find it in the "Add/Remove programs" list, then you may have to uninstall the Nero software and then reinstall it but unselect to have the InCD software installed.

Media Center Receiver Service has encountered a problem and needs to close.


If you delete the information in the Control Panel and restart your computer, it will look for the driver by itself.
