The optical drive itself is faulty. If the computer is under warranty, contact HP to have a tech come out and replace it. As an HP warranty tech, I see this quite a bit.


Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

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

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.

My CD rom and lightscribe dvd writer/cd writer for my HP Pavilion1120n do no work. I have tried the trouble shooting and it says it is corrupted or there is no code 39


If you can still detect the device, you should try reinstalling the driver from your device manager. If still doesnt work , you should try to upgrade the firmware driver using proprietary software included in your dvd writer cd.

Hope this will help you out .. :)

Can't burn DVD but can burn cd


There is a possibility that the laser of the optical drive is not functioning anymore to write dvd. This is what you have to do.

Click on Start
Click Run
Type regedit and press OK
Registry Editor windows will come up
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
CLass
{4d36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

on the right hand side, delete "Upper FIlters" and "Lower Filters" you may see on it. Everything that has something to say on upper and lower filters.

Close the Registry Editor and then Click on START, right click on My Computer and then select Properties.

Go to Hardware Tab and click on Device Manager
click on the (+) sign of the cd/dvd rom and right click on the item below and select Uninstall.

Close everything and restart your computer and try burning a dvd

***remember to use burning software since windows XP explorer could not simply burn data using the Explorer it self.

Hi, HP use Sonic software to burn CD and work with the CD DVD writer. If burn CD using Sonic soon as the CD burn complete the CD will auto matic will eject just turn the up side down and push it back you can burn the text or image to the CD label. I have 3 HP desktop and that's the way I used to burn CD and Lightscribe labeling.

Is it compatable with my desktop pc?


Ok. Well basically CD, DVD and Hard Drives are all cross compatible platforms so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. If your asking me to choose I would say that you remove the CD writer instead. But before you do this make sure you have enough extra sockets in your motherbaord to plug in your Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe if your CD Writer uses IDE interface your inluck coz you can use it in place of the Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe, but if it isn't make sure you have a spare IDE socket in your motherboard. Simply remove the side panel use a flashlight and see if there are vacant IDE sockets, it's usually long in black, white or blue color. see the picture below.

If its vacant follow the steps on the link below simply copy and paste the link on you browsers address bar.
