Re: HP DVD740 lichtscribe ect...
When I've seen this problem it's been a bad laser. Most burners have separate lasers for the DVD and CD functions, and one of yours has probably malfunctioned.
You should be eligible for an RMA if the warranty is still in effect.

there is something wrong with the format of the files that you burnt. its either the format is not recognized by your dvd player or the format is not supposed to be burnt.try reading every details whenever you're burning a file to a cd/dvd. at the same time, check the specifications of your dvd player and find out the formats that it can read or recognize so that you'd know what format should you burn a file into.
you're starting to experince laser pick up failure, maybe starting to weakened. Try using a cleaner first and it could be dirty nor with carbon deposits. If still the same then i dont know of any shop repairing DVD drives, it will be up for replacement only.
