Question about HP DVD1140i 22x Pata Multiformat Dvd Writer Burner
All dvd writers have drivers on windows...and are installed automatically when windows is installed..If it started not to recognize dvd-es ...specially the ones burned in data format with multiple movies (avi ) ..even burned on it ...but sees the original ones..or sees the cd'es ..than the issue is with its lens ..and either you need a cleaning disk to clean it up ..or it is gone ...and need to be replaced..I personally have to do with something like this sand tried to update firmware ..installed original driver from the support site ,,and all the same ..Clean the lens and see how it is behaving ..and if it does the same ..just replace it ..cause they do have limited life time..otherwise you will end up with a lot of frustrations and no results...

It's not a problem of "device drivers", so don't bark up that (wrong) tree;
the software supplied by HP does _NOT_ include device-drivers.
1. the hardware has failed -- can it read any commercially-produced DVD disks?
If not, then replace the hardware.
2. there is software "inside" the device, called "firmware", that reads the volume-label
recorded onto the start of each "blank" disk. Either update the firmware, or
try a different brand of "blank" disks, because the current firmware is NOT accepting
as valid the volume-label on the current brand of disks. Newer firmware should recognize
the data on the volume-label.
