    When I put the installation disc in the external dvd drive as instructed i get the installer screen and it sounds like it's running but nothing else happens. When I try to close out of that screen it has no toolbar to x out or anything and esc doesn't even work. I ended up having to ctrl alt del my way out and the dvd drive is still not installed. My model is a HP 1040e 20x multiformat dvd writer (external)

Hi,

you should be able to boot from this device, on 2 conditions.
1:- the device is set to boot first, in the System Bios. Setup.
2:- The disk inserted, is a Bootable CD/DVD.

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject


on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..

A freind let me borrow their hp dvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. i can burn the music on cds fine with itunes, but i cant figure out how to use the litescribe to burn images on the tops....


You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!

Change the boot order in the BIOS to CDROM 1st. If that doesn't work then the BIOS of that version doesn't support booting to a USB Device

Hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's. Can't record DVD - keeps asking for blank disc when it's already inserted


What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.

I would email or call hp support and ask about this as there should be a firmware update of some description.

Also re install latest chipset drivers and maybe adaptec aspi drivers ?
