This used to work, had a new hard drive installed under warranty, and now the burner fails as often as it works - each time I lose a DVD...

Any suggestions?

You may need to take the DVD burner back because from what you are saying it's faulty.

Check when booting up the computer there is usually a section that detects the drives like hard drive and CD-ROM drives does it show all of the drives that are in the system?

Also check Device Manager to see if all of the disk drive(s) are working properly.

After the computer is fully booted up does the Burner drive drawer open and close when the button is pushed? Try this several times.

The IDE or power cable on the cd drive may have been loosened when the hdd was installed.

Remove the side of the case and make sure the connections are tight.

Is this the same brand of DVD's that used to work, or have you changed brands?
Some burners are particular about what brand they like.
