HELP!! : DVD drive reads DVDs but can't read CD-R/CD-RW
Apr 2, 2006, 8:53 AM
ive got this DVD drive (HP 300N) and its been working fine until a few weeks ago where the drive somehow messed up.
The weird thing is that it can read dvds but can't read or sense cd-r/cd-rw. I tried burning both with nero and windows media but they both said "please enter cd into drive" or something similar..
I've also tried using other cds and cd-rws..and they all work perfectly on the other computer i have..
I also have the latest firmware from HP..
Do you guys think you can help me out??
