Question about HP (F3493A) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

1 Answer

F3493a dvd-rom/cd-rw does not read DVD's all the time

I burned an openSUSE 10.2 download on a Samsung Writemaster DVD-+R/RW using a Sony DVD+R blank. Under a Win XP sp2 it is not seen. The DVD boots on other machines but not my HP zt1135 with a purchased f3493a. Serial# 51072632003 p/n 0950-4298 REV 1B. Any insights?

DVD TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-H552B. Computer crash using DVD+R

I tried using a blank DVD+R 16X and as soon as I closed the DVD drawer the computer crashed. No warning, no blue screen just straight to a restart. If I left the DVD in it cycled through back to a restart.
I tried the latest firmware from Samsung but it still happened S10.
I then tried an HP firmware update HP13 from their driver update page and all is well.
If you need to know more of my computer spec then please ask.
