    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!

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.

Can I play dvds on a hpdvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. My husband purchased this because we needed a dvd player and writer for our computer.


http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.htmlgo here and click on start detection for the site to detect your dvdwriter. If it has drivers for this it will guide you to the correctpage. If it hasn't got the drivers there is a manual that you candownload on this site too for your dvdrom. There is also an option tocontact HP for support. This may be your best option.

Have you tried right clicking the device in device manager?
Go to Control Panel>system>Hardware>device manager (if usingXP) or just Control Panel>system>device mangager if using Vista,and click on the + sign next to your DVDrom, click on properties andthen click on update driver. If it asks for your permission to go ontothe internet to search, allow it as it may find the driver that youneed.
Windows should really have picked up the driver for you when you loaded it on your computer.
Another option is to check the jumpers on the back of your hard driveand the dvd rom. The jumpers are little plastic covers that cover pinson the back of the drives, they can be black, white or yellow. Theydetermine whether your drive will be used for Master or Slave. You willsee on the drive what it is set at just above or below the jumper. Somedrives say just say M for master and S for slave other drives sayMaster and Slave. Check your Harddrive, if it says Master then makesure your DVD rom is set to slave, if your harddrive is set to slavethen make sure your dvdrom is set to master. See if these solutionshelp at all.
