Question about HP LightScribe dvd640i (DVD640I) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Won't read Blank DVD+RW's. Blank CD's work fine. Full DVD's work fine.

I have no idea why, but if I insert a blank DVD+RW, nothing ever comes up, and it says 0 bytes. This happened a few hours after erasing a re-writable DVD. I've tried it with a few blanks, none of them work. :( Help! :(

They may need to be formated first, but you will need to refer to your software, as to how it is done.

When it comes time for me to copy my dvd...it prompts me to insert a blank dvd-r...i insert a blank dvd-r and it kicks the disc back out telling me to insert a blank dvd-r. Do i have to do something...

This is a common problem. RW DVD are different types. You need to read what type of RW DVD you need there will be either a nimber, leter or symbol at the end of where it says RW DVD or DVD RW and you CANNOT use just any disc.

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd discs

This is correct, as there is no TOC on a blank disk there is nothing to read. it is your writing software that identifies blank media when inserted, so you may wish to check your software is appropriate for your requirements Cheers :D
