Hey, okay I’ve been grappling with this problem for about a year and a half now ever since Gl-dt-st bought my zd I’ve had the drive replaced 3 times!!! Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.

Here’s what worked for me. I’ve written ddvd-rw DVD’s with my device as part of my compaq nx notebook with verify on and then about 20 without.
HP is blaming the vendor, the vendor is blamin HP and Micsrosoft is blaming both of them. Has anyone found out a solution to the problem?? I hope this helps and may HP get what it deserves.
Seems these drives are made to fail.

My problem is similar yet slightly differs from yours. HP does not seem to say why this is happening!! 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. This means they shoudl replace it.
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 hl-dt-stt the time. Since two weeks the device doesn’t recognize the verified own-written dvd’s anymore.

Hi Everyone, I have the same issue withthe samedrive but in a Dell laptop. This is kind of a short cut to ga a ton of time trying to fix a common and unsolvable problem. Guess what, I get the windows recovery thingy on the disk and no other disk provided, and on top of that, the CD Key h-ldt-st Windows does not match the CD key that is on the casing of my computer.
I trolled a lot of info and found that there are many people withthe same issue. Toshiba, I love it, My oter laptop, out of warranty, out of date and I had a problem with it and it was fixed witin 24 hours and I never had the same problem again. And you are not the only one Nikhil, I am sure as soon as the warranty is over, I am going to throw out all the HP computers from my house and also I have stoppped recommendng people to do it.
Hi, Take a look here: So yeah, any solution for that.
