We've tried to burn cd's multiple times. We've actually burnt a few good ones, most of them burn a few songs and then on the last few either won't play or doesnt show up at all... the programs says there's an error and thats it. It will also only recognize one type of cd... memorex... it's a dvdrw drive but the dvds we've bought it wont recognize those either. I'm at a lose for what to do...

I've got a HP Pavilion Slimline s7320n computer
with a HP DVD Writer 740b.

Any suggestions would be helpful, thank you.

Google the drive. See if you can find recommendations for media model/type. *brand

How old is it. How much have you burned. I remember a mate made a calculated guesss that many burners will start to fail at 100 burns something. Just to give you an idea, they are not meant to work forever.

I would look for an updated firmware.
You probably need to run from dos. In any case I suggest you do.

About the error. Try burn at a slower speed. You could try post that error.

Hope it helps.

I prefer to update burner firmware(flash) from safe mode with the drive empty

burn slow with premium media

memorex is junk

I have about a 5-600 dvd burns with my LG4163B, maybe a lot more(who counts)

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
