I bought a used HP Compaq nc6220. I upgraded the CD-RW to a uj832 DVD-RW burner; couldn't get it to work. I

used Nero, DVD decrypter, DVD shrink 32, InterVideo, Burn 4 free, Win DVD Creator 2. I wasn't even trying to copy

protected DVD's! All of these programs stop after encountering various read errors. I have tried 3 different

drives thinking maybe it was the drive itself. Updated the firmware for the drive; didn't work. uninstalled the

firmware driver and upgraded the BIOS and reinstalled the firmware for the DVD rom; didn't work. I am at my wits

end with this . Hoping someone has a solution.

You are receiving read errors? What type of DVD/CDs are you trying to read (commercial pressed or recorded)? You tried 3 different models of drives, or 3 different drives of the same model?
Does the old drive work?

Nero>Toolkit>Diskspeed>Scan- Scan a known good disk. Any errors?

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

Yes. the programs go part way through and stop with read errors. actually now 5 drives of the same model! (had a couple a people in mind. The last four came in a deal I couldn't pass up.) I don't even get to the point of using a particular medium; except for the last drive which actually burned one disk (Sony DVD-R). Oh , I see, commercially pressed and recorded. The old drive does work. I've tried Nero's benchmark test in the toolkit. I'll try it as you set out and get back to you.
