Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?

HP Pavillion laptop won't backup to optical drive...CD/DVD-RW; I do have 1 Click Copy (&Pro) installed as well as DVD43. I have tried to uninstall the DVD43 & 1 Click but it doesn't change anything... the computer acts like there is NO optical drive at all. I can copy files directly from the directory (file folders on C:, etc.) but as far as doing an actual backup it just fails every time & it's been forever since I've done one. HELP!!!!!


Answers :

HP Pavillion laptops and every others laptops do require CD/DVD recordable for backup not CD/DVD rewritable. Try to use a CD/DVD recordable to see what will happen first.
