Nice try, but no bannana

There are no drivers for the HP 1040i DVD burner on the HP web site.
I am having the same problem as above. Installed drive as master, reads CD and DVDs just fine. Will NOT read a blank dvd to write.
Tried all the usual remove the drivers and let XP install new one tricks. No luck.
Help me ObiWan or this is going back to Frys!

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

Dvd stops burning


depending on how old your drive is, it could be the laser is faulting, or you may need to update the firmware. If the laser is at fault try a lens cleaner cd and if no change try the below solution or you mayneed to replace the drive as they are inexpensive to replace. There could be a problem with the burning programme, so try a different one if possible, ensure you have adequate memory for the burning process of the disc and enough hard drive space for the burning programme to save the temp image to your drive before burning.
