my laptop fell to the floor ;and the burner stop working.
I have an hp pavilion dv5170us notebook pc which, for some unknown reason, has sometimes stopped recognizing the E: drive (cd drive). Sometimes it will, and sometimes it won't, and the won'ts are beginning to out number the wills.
The message received is that there isn't a cd in the drive, when in reality there is. This happens whether I am attempting to play a cd or to burn one.
This laptop sits at my desk, hasn't been dropped, banged or had anything spilled on it.

I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
4x DVD-/+R DL
so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...
usualy I do like this: if I'm using a resource and this disapperar I restart PC if the resource start working is probabliy a operating system issue (virus,driver,issue, or what other in the S.O), if the resource still doesn't work it's possible a hardware problem. It may be usefoul to controll BIOS or try a live linux distribution to be sure if is an hardware problem.

Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about) 3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.
