    IThank you. Where do you get a cleaning disk? Also, it doesn't reconize any disk that is inserted, like the driver isn't there. So I doubt it will load a cleaning disk. Any other suggestions?

    Great. I will try this!

  • Super Mom2 Jan 09, 2009

    I needed to contact HP and they had me uninstall the driver and reinstall it. I will keep it clean though thanks to your advice!

    Cheers.

    They are available just about anywhere you can buy CD DVD discs

    If the eye is dirty .. that is a possible "response" .. not recognizing a disc being inserted

    What happened after the cleaning?

  • Anonymous Jan 09, 2009

    That would have been the next step .. but as a "tech" and when someone says its not working/reading .. we try to make sure that we eliminate "environmental"issues.



    Thanks for the rating ... Hope to be of help to you again .. if you ever need it ..

I can burn cd's but not dvd's

Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk

If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read

Hi,
do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive

ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
