Hey, okay I’ve been grappling with this problem for about a year and a half now ever since I’ve bought my zd I’ve had the drive replaced 3 times!!! All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Parts are dropping off. This means they shoudl replace it.
Toshiba, I love it, My oter laptop, out of warranty, out of date and I had a problem with it and it was fixed witin 24 hours and I never had the same problem again.
BTW HP Cheated me, I paid a bucks extra for a 4x drive, and this drive only does 2x even if it says 4x writing, check out the latest nero version’s diagnostic features. It recognizes the unverified ones without any problem. I’m buying a mac. Let me know if you find a solution and i’ll do the same Paul. Uninstall all CD burning software properly. Hi Everyone, I have the same issue withthe samedrive but in a Dell laptop.
Pay attention on witch type of DVD you are trying to write.
I trolled a lot of info and found that there are many people withthe same issue. Seems these drives are made to fail. This is one customer never buying anything from HP again. Make sure all additional drivers installed by these softwares are uninstalled same goes for registry keys Step 3.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise International. I hope this helps and may HP get what it deserves. Dont’ worry of your drive shows up as GWAn after burning the firmware. This is kind of a short cut to spending a ton of time trying to fix a common and unsolvable problem.
Contact Email us Tell us what you think. Has anyone found out a solution to the problem?? The Screen has lines, the hard drive makes bad sounds and now the DVD doesn’t burn.
Too bad for me I had to spend 5 hours on with tech support to get nowhere. Okay, coming to the soution of the problem, it appears as though there is a problem with the firmware AND hardware, it doesnt’ recognize all media and the default calibration settings are incompatible with most media which is why it never burns most of the time. So yeah, 4040h solution for that. My problem is similar yet slightly differs ul yours.

And you are not the only one Nikhil, I am sure as soon as the warranty is rs, I am going to throw out all the HP computers from my house and also I have stoppped recommendng people to do it. The opinions expressed above are the personal opinions of the authors, not of Hewlett 0440n Enterprise. Hi I’ve just bought a presario r and I seem to be having the same problems. HP is blaming the vendor, the vendor is blamin HP and Micsrosoft is blaming both of them.
One thing you can do,if you still have warranty, or are thick-skinned enough to argue customer svc into helping anyway, is boot to diagnostic for WinXP restart holding down the f6 key and run through the “express test.
