HP dvd 740 doesn't recognize when blank discs are put in

Hi, my HP dvd 740 has most up to date firmware BUT when I use Nero to try and burn a project it won't spin the disk that I put in... it's like it doesn't even realize it's in there. These discs are the same brand I've used in the past with no problem - Verbatim DVD+R DL Any help? It's not StarForce (checked)

Check IDE cable connection. You might need a new IDE cable. I had the same problem, until I did the aformentioned. Hope this helps.

My HP DVD 740 won't recognize blank CDs


Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL discs not burning in Nero 6


Are you sure that you are putting in a blank disc? What happens when you put the disc inside the DVD writer? does it show up as a blank disc? This could be one of the reason for the multi session disc box getting greyed out.

Blank DVDs turn my DVD Burner into a CD Drive


Not knowing what OS you're running or what version of Nero you have, I'll make a few assumptions. If you're running Vista with Nero 7, Nero doesn't always "play nice" with Vista. It's a memory hog (all video editing programs are) but it tends to hang up a lot and for some reason, runs worse in Vista than in XP. (just my observation)

I've had to re-install Nero twice due to similar problems. (lack of drive recognition, burns ab-ending etc) . You've probably already uninstalled/reinstalled the burner so I would uninstall Nero and reinstall it. Best of luck and please post back with any questions.

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized


Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.

Hp 740e not reading blank dvd discs


Don't wanna sound like a Doomsayer but I think it has burned its last burn...

Try to clean it first, if it still doesn't work, then it is time for a new one.

Had a similar experience and we found out that the drive had conked out.

Problems recording DVD-R 16X


Try this download page to update your firmware from 25/10/05, so if you bought your writer before this date maybe this will work, otherwise buy 8x discs. http://sony.storagesupport.com/dvdrw/firmware.htm#710 The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
