Having problems with your HP Compaq nx5000 Notebook ?

I would like to try for the first time to record a DVD on my HP nx5000 Notebook. On a label enclosed with the blanks I have purchased I read: ?Use of this disc in incompatible recorders may lead to permanent damage to the recorder? The discs are TDK DVD-R, 1-16x speed, 4,7 GB single sided. Can I use these discs without doing harm to the recorder? Joe


Answers :

I looked up the specifications of your laptop model and you have a DVD writer. It should work fine.
\015\012
\015\012The DVD will be written at the highest speed possible for the disk. You can lower the speed that it is written with in your DVD burning software (Nero or Roxio etc.).
\015\012
\015\012That can help for compatability with other drives that are lower speed.
Hi there.
Yes of course you can use that disk to burn to, most recorders these days don't get damaged and can write to just about any disk which is on the market.
The message that comes with the blank disks is just a generic message which covers the disk manufacturer from liability, if the disk is incompatible then the recorder will not write to it, it will not damage the recorder.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
