Old HP DVD 300C Driver (Problems burning .ISO)

Last response: in Storage

Trying to use ImgBurn to write my Windows 7 .iso file onto a blank (Yes, its a blank brand new I have a full stack of DVD+RWs 4.7GBs) DVD and it's just being a PITA. :fou: 

Not sure if the problem is with my HP DVD 300C firmware or what. I tried to update the firmware and get some CRAP saying that I need RecordNow but then when I get that the install freezes and says I need an HP computer! :cry: 

Here is my error from ImgBurn:

Does this error every time.

Any information you need please let me know!

I'm not sure about that error message but I'm pretty sure you need a double layered dvds to make a windows disk. 4.7 gigs is not enough space.

The problem has everything to do with my 300C burner.

I have not come to a conclusion on how to download the firmware nor do I care because I officially think HP is a dumb company.

Went to a friends house, used his burner and the same DVD+RW that I used before which "didn't work"-- now has the Windows 7 .iso files on it.
