Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

DVD Burner does not recognize blank dvds

\015 I tried updating the firmware/driver for this product (HP DVD writer 840b) but it still does not recognize blank dvds, from other forums I see I am not the only one with this problem. Is there a setting that needs to be changed from updating the windows service pack, i have service pack 3.\015

Answers :

Usually 2 things cause this issue.

Incompatable Media or a Bad Drive.  
Make sure the type of disk you have is compatable with your burner. Often off brand or no brand media just won't work. HP burners are picky.

When I insert a blank DVD into the DVD burner, the computer only recognizes the drive as a CD drive, not a DVD drive. If there is no disk, "My Computer" shows it as a DVDRW.
