Question about Computers & Internet

I had a cd blow up inside my lightscribe dvd writer. I was eventually able to open it up and clean out all the broken pieces from the cd but when I reinstalled the disk it will not open when I press the eject button; it just makes a noise as if it is trying to open but can't. Do you have any ideas on how to fix the problem.

To manually open your disk drive, stick a paper clip or push pin in the small hole in front of the DVD Drive - (see picture below)

Will it open if you push the button on the front of dvd writer. you might have to open it up and see if there is nothing wrong. look for broken band or broken gears. if so you may have to buy another one or just open it from the front.

hope this works

I kept a disk in a dvd writer and after sometime it has broken in the writer i have removed the disk tray and removed the broken disk pieces now the tray is not going inside


You need to open the cover of you DVD driver to check if there is some particle left inside the DVD. As there is a possibility that there is something left inside the DVD. If you have idea you can open it and remove everything left inside the DVD.

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.

    Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero. http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html
