I seem to be having a problem with my cd/dvd rom/writer. I am using Vista 64 bit on a HP Pavilion dv7-1245dx. For whatever reason it is not reading discs properly (freezes up) and when trying to burn a disc no matter what program I use it burns to disc but doesn't complete the burn....leaving me with an incomplete and unusable CD. I've wasted at least a dozen CD's now and I have no idea what to do. I thought perhaps I should update the firmware for the writer but cannot seem to find anything. Please help...

What burning programs have you tried?

Have you tried uninstalling the device in Device Manager and restarting your computer? This will make the installation wizard install new drivers when it recognizes the drive as new hardware.

I've tried Burrrn and Exact Audio Copy. I did uninstall the driver for the device and restart the computer...it made the device itself disappear and once I restarted it reappeared. Is this the same or should I try actually uninstalling the device itself?

You did the correct procedure to uninstall the drive. Actually, it uninstalls the drivers.

Did you uninstall the drive before or after my suggestion? If after, what were the results?

Try using a different program. Imgburn has a good reputation with members here.

Imgburn is great however it doesn't offer "write offsets" as EAC does...giving a pure 100% 1:1 copy.

The point is to try another program that I know should work with your computer.

I'm running out of ideas, perhaps another member will take it from here.

You can either replace the burner or take the easy way by buying a external drive like this.

From what has been described it looks like the burn isn't finalizing, this is a software problem.

Have you tried reseating the data cable from both the back of the burner and on the motherboard?
Maybe its off just enough to not complete the burn.
A strech but worth checking.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Correct it isn't finalizing the burn however it does this with every program I try. @Eyesee: this is a laptop. How would I perform the task you suggested?

I managed to correctly burn a CD with the "burrrn" program. Now I just need to figure out how to use "accuraterip" to determine my drive's write offset. I know my read offset is +6. That way I can use cuetools to create a disc image that already has the write offset contained and burn a 1:1 disc using "burrrn".
