Having problems with your HP Media Center m7250n (ED842AA) PC Desktop ?

Burn error As I stated in a earlier question I can burn a dvd successfully , but every time I attempt to burn a cd (data,audio) it always errors out at the end of the burn process. I'm posting the log file in hopes that somebody can make something out of it. I have tried to update the driver from HP but there was not one. It is an HP dvd writer 640c. Thanks NT-SPTI used Nero Version: 7.0.0.0 Recorder: Version: QS12 - HA 1 TA 0 - 7.0.0.0 Adapter driver:

Dvd burning Thanks. You know to be honest I am not to sure about any of this, we just got this computer not to long ago and were told it came with a dvd burner. When we put in a dvd or cd windows media player comes up. That is what we used to burn cds and had no problem. It will play the dvd but it wont do anything else. We have tried several different dvds. We have tried ones we own and ones that we had burned for us and none of them would burn.
