HP Pavilion a220n cd-rw doesn't work

I just had my computer's windows xp re-installed due to a virus that made it stop working.

The company kept my music and important documents but I did have to download a driver for my printer since that was missing.

My cd-rw drive is not working. I assume I need a driver but cannot find one anywhere. I have only found 1 answer but it's telling me to copy the downloaded file to a cd. But the cd-rw drive doesn't work so I can't do it.

Do you know what I can do to get this to work again?

The device manager says it's a "Sony CD-RW CRX215E5".

I've been searching for about 9 hours straight and I can't think anymore. Please, can anyone help me?

THANK YOU SO MUCH....

    Hi,



    It will play a cd but will not burn. I have tried several free cd burners as well as the ones built in and errors keep coming up. I've also tried several types of cd-r's as well.

    The drivers for a CD or DVD drive are known as ATAPI and are built in to Windows, you do not need to down load them, they would be installed automatically by Windows.

    When you say your CD drive is not working, what isn't working? will it not burn a CD or does it not even play a CD?

There are several different types of CD burning software, Windows own built in, OEM, Retail and free.
I never use the Windows burner, no reason just choice. The OEM burning software is specific to the CD burner it was supplied with. Retail should work with any CD burner and the free ones tend to be a little hit and miss.
I don't know what type of CD burning software you have (oem or retail) but maybe somewhere along the line the wrong software has been installed.
A few people I know recommend DeepBurner which is free, you can download it here:

Quite honestly if you cannot get your CD burner to work any more I would simply replace it, they are so cheap these days and require very little knowledge to change, it might just not be worth the effort of messing with that one.

To fix hpzjrd01.dll errors occurring due to corrupt or incomplete installation of HP printer software, uninstall your printer driver and reinstall it again.

To ensure the HP printer software is completely uninstalled from your system, we recommend you either use the built-in Add or Remove Programs utility or use the help of a third-party uninstaller, such as Perfect Uninstaller.

If it has rejected multiple brands and models of disks (and you are sure the optical unit is fine) then probably your backing system is configured to work in an incremental way, which needs RW disks.

Savedump.exe error


Hi there
Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous.
Some malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

HP Pavilion a220n cd-rw won't burn


Maybe you will see the error status in the peripheric manager. First, go to the control panel, look for the system icon. Double-click on it. Then, select the material tab. Click on the peripheric manager (sorry, I use the French version, so it may not be called that way, but it is the first button on that tab). You will then see all the different type of material connected. Click on the + in front of the CD-ROM, DVD player. If there is a yellow mark !, that means that the installation is not correct. You can simply erase that configuration (right-click and select erase). You restart your computer and Windows XP will rebuild that info.

Please, give me some news.

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n


Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.
