Question

Hello and thank you,

I bought a aftermarket upgrade dvd burner (hp dvd100i) for my hp desktop. It is DVD+RW type and came with hp dvd programs. Installed fine and can play factory dvd movies fine. However, when I "burn" dvd's (using DVD+RW blank media), it goes through the process and says dvd is completed, but they are not "seen" by either the dvd player in the computer or home dvd player. The home dvd player is DVD+RW compatible. The hp dvd writer that burned them doesn't even "see" them, though the LED light on the player just keeps blinking. Went to hp for latest driver downloads and installed them. In the past 3 months that I've owned this writer I got lucky once and actually burned a home movie onto dvd and it does play in the home dvd player, but is not "seen" by the dvd writer that wrote it?!

Any thoughts? Patrick

I looked at your question and one thing I had tocheck out and that was system requirements, the particular dvd burner you have require a pentium III and although you have enough RAM, Celerons don't provide the compatabilty for video as does a pentium III Intel Celeron chips aren't as robust as the pentium chips.
