Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

My hp pavilion dv9000z dvd burner does not burn dvd's all the way through, i've tried different brands of blank discs, some do not even start burning, i've started using dvd+rw, so that i can use the disc again if it does stop burning have way through. the last pack i brought had 5 disc in it only 3 burned, the last 2 failed after formating, what can i do?


Answers :

Here's a few things to check:

    \015\012
  1. make sure you have at least 15% free space on your c: drive. If free space is too low, windows has very little hard drive space to use as virtual memory and windows can just barf sometimes.
  2. \015\012
  3. make sure you don't have a bunch of other programs running when you are burning discs, especially limewire and any other peer to peer or torrent downloading software. Close all programs you are not using, including programs in the system tray (by the clock).
  4. \015\012
  5. Try burning discs at slower speeds. Also good to check for malware. download these 3 free programs and run all of them. do full scans and delete any problems they find.


also, there are some known hardware issues with this series of laptop. I'm not sure if this is one of them, but in many cases, HP will repair your laptop past the warranty period....free of charge. Seriously.

It is possible that the dvd burner itself is defective.
try this if the steps above don't get things working for you.

Contact HP support, explain the issue, and ask them this question:

"does this problem qualify my laptop for a one time warranty enhancement"?

Hope this helps!

Trying to copy DVD data discs to hard drive, some work, many fail with unable to read errors part way through. Tried copy and paste, drag and drop, tried the Power2Go that came with the HPVista64 bit computer which generated the error code 0xeb020b88. Tried to copy the DVDs onto other computers and had a 50% success ratio. One it DID work on has the same DVD multi -drive as mine and is also an HP with Vista 64bit. Have replaced my drive with a new one from HP. Computer is HP HDX16-1375DX
