Have you tried replacing the ribbon cable that connects the dvd RW to the motherboard in your computer?....they sometimes fail;that could be a cause...worst thing i can think of is somehow your connector on your motherboard may have come lose, or shorted....
also, check to see if the dvd RW is recognized in your BIOS...if you need instruction how to boot into BIOS, please ask me....

Hp 740e Burner


"Nero only recognizes the drive as 4x dvd+/-r..." ...
  • 4x for which media format (e.g., CD-RW, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, etc.)?
  • Have you had/used Nero during the entire year you've used this drive?
  • Is it ACTUALLY burning at a slower speed than before that you know of, or is it only the Nero indicator that you're going by?
If you've updated both the driver(s) and device firmware, there's nothing further that can be done in that department.

Both these sources (1) http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters?DVDnameidnew=1336&orderby=Price (2) http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-DVD-740E-R-16X-External-USB-LightScribe-DVD%B1RW-Drive_W0QQitemZ270319806919QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20081219?IMSfp=TL081219114003r29076 corroborate each other with the following speed spec's for your drive:

4x DVD-RDL
6x DVD-RW
8x DVD+RW
8x DVD+RDL
16x DVD+R
16x DVD-R
24x CD-RW (up to 32x)
40x CD-R

Are you getting at-or-near these speeds with your specific applicable disk media (i.e., DVD+RW @ 8x)? In other words: Make sure you are comparing apples-to-apples.

NERO TOOLS:
Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at http://www.cdspeed2000.com/download.html. They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDiscSpeed_41140.zip
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDriveSpeed_300.zip

HOWEVER, since you say you have Nero, you're likely to have them installed and available already. Perform an objective test using "Nero DiscSpeed" to determine the actual burn speed of you drive.

Good luck, and please post back to let me know how things work out, or if you have any further questions.

Hi

Yes it is a common problem with Dell machines. Try right clicking on the icon in My Computer and selecting 'eject' If that does not work then just buy a new one and install. It is a straightforward job. just make sure the jumper connections on the new player are set the same as the old one
