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)

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.
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.
This problem is weird because if you already tried using alot of disc and still it wont burn this can be a problem with the burners , this can be a softwarer related problem I will advice you to contact JVC and ask them if there's any software update for this devices...
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.
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.
The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
