My dvd reads but dont write Tags: DVD Writers DVD Computer HP Pavilion DVD Drives Storage Last response: January 10, 2012 5:30 PM in Storage Share aalmamun January 10, 2012 4:47:23 PM Hello, On my HP Pavilion computer DVD Rom can read and recognise disk successfully but when ever I follow the steps for burning files it keeps asking for a blank DVD. Thanks Ahsan More about : dvd reads dont write WyomingKnott a c 259 G Storage January 10, 2012 5:30:07 PM If what you have is actually a "DVD Rom" then it is read-only and will not burn files. Can you give a model number or some other way for us to tell if this is actually a writable drive? perhaps the properties from Device Manager? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
