HPdvd1040i No longer burns DVDs

To whom this may concern:
I purchased my HP dvd1040i dvd burn drive and it worked correctly for about 6 months, now when I try to burn a dvd it gives me errors, HP support is LESS than helpful (12 phone calls, resulting in being transferred to a line that rang for 15 minutes before hanging up on me, a total of 32 "wrong transfers", a direct phone number "208-323-2551" to get support for my drive that gives a message to the effect that the department is closed permently, transfered to the PEPSI-COLA company & being hung up on.) Needless to say I'm about at my wits-end, You are my last resort. I'm sorry about the rant but I had to give some perspective. PLEASE HELP!
P.S.
OS = WinXP Home v2002 SP2
RAM = 2x512mb chips = roughly 1gb
Burning software = Nero 7 essentials
Media = Memorex DVD+R (Lightscribe)
Files to be burned = avi in XVID format
CPU = 2.1Ghz
Graphics Card = Raedon 9250

    I downloaded CDBURNERXP and used Nero 7 to create an image file and then used CDBURNERXP to burn the disc image and it did the trick! Thank you so much!

Can I suggest you download CDBURNERXP and try burning your disc through this. Only I had the same problem using NERO 7. But since using CDBURNERXP I've had no prolems at all and it's a bit faster. CDBURNERXP is a free dowmload. google it to find it on the web. Hope this works for you.

Reads cds and dvds, but won't burn to them


Your drive can only burn CDs, not DVDs. To burn CDs you need to purchase a blank CD-R or CD-RW at a local computer store. You can burn a CD-R only once but a CD-RW can erased and written upon many time.
Try Nero software for burning.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

My cd/dvd combo driver will no longer burn discs


Instead of looking for repair programs, try looking for drivers for that specific cd/dvd drive. It may simply need a new driver.
