HP Pavilion a220n cd-rw won't burn

\015 My cd burner used to work until my computer got a virus and I took it to a place and they fixed it. He saved everything, my music/documents/etc. Just re-installed windows xp.\015\012\015\012I've been searching for answers for days and the only thing I come up with is a file to download...but the install wizard wants me to burn the file to a cd and re-boot from that. But I can't do that since the burner doesn't burn anything, not even data/iso files. Nothing. It just says "disk error" or "disk drive error", depending on what cd burning software I use.\015\012\015\012I have bought 3 types of cd-r's to make 100% sure it wasn't the cd's. It's the burner...The program recognizes the burner, recognizes the cd that is in there, downloads the music and the second it swiches to "writing cd", it ejects it and says error reading cd or something to that effect.\015\012\015\012I have an HP Pavilion a220n PC running Windows XP. I am going out of my mind! Not too many answers or questions like this due to the age of the computer. But there must be a fix for this I assume? Please help me from going insane. Thank you very much. Colleen\015

Answers :

Have you tried this firmware update from HP yet. This particular update from June 2004 indicates that it primarily addresses an audio performance issue, but rarely do any firmware updates also not address media recognition that would help the CD/DVD writer both read and write to specific blank media.
It is highly unlikely but not impossible that a virii infection would cause you inability to write to media, much more likey that the CDwriter is trying to give up the ghost. Before assuming to much tho, get some canned compressed air and blow into the cdwriter with tray open. This may more a simply issue of some foreign material sitting on the lens of the laser that allows you write to media. Be aware while this may be the latest firmware from HP on this particular CDwriter, that does not mean that there are not other later firmware updates from other souces. HP and all the OEM companies have a bad habit of taking their time about issuing updates and rarely if ever follow a product to completion of its update cycle. In other words remember this is a Sony product, not a HP product even tho it is in a HP computer.
If more information is needed come back to us and don't forget to rate us, as that is the only compensation we are getting for these long drawn out explanations and research on your product or problem.
Maybe you will see the error status in the peripheric manager. First, go to the control panel, look for the system icon. Double-click on it. Then, select the material tab. Click on the peripheric manager (sorry, I use the French version, so it may not be called that way, but it is the first button on that tab). You will then see all the different type of material connected. Click on the + in front of the CD-ROM, DVD player. If there is a yellow mark !, that means that the installation is not correct. You can simply erase that configuration (right-click and select erase). You restart your computer and Windows XP will rebuild that info.

Please, give me some news.
