DVD burner won't burn??

Katie7911July 22, 2011

I have an HP dv2000 laptop. It has a built in DVD player/burner. I'm trying to make some disks to get some of the junk off my computer, make some photo DVD's etc, and for some reason every time I try the program says that it can't find a DVD recorder! I've checked my drivers for the device but Windows says it's up to date. I use Vista, if that matters any. Can anyone help me figure out what's going on?

If you place a music or data DVD or CD in the drawer does it play the music or offer to display the data?

If the DVD burner is shot you would probably be better to buy an external DVD player/burner rather than replace the internal one.

Check your device manager. What does it tell you is there?

Are you sure it's a DVD burner? Some older PCs had DVD readers that were CD read/write.

There are several dv2000 models. This is for one of them as it may help. Google is your friend.
