HP Pavilion DV6700Z laptop
Downgraded to Windows XP SP3
LG GSA-T2-N DVD-R/W
Everything seems to work on this laptop except CD writing (have not tried any DVD functions yet). (DVD burning did work under VISTA so I’m pretty certain the hardware is functional.)
Immediately after booting, My Computer shows the device as a DVD-RAM. The standard driver is load (and has been reloaded several times). IMAPI (via the CD Writing Wizard) fails with “There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.”, even though there is a fresh Imation 52X CD-R in the drive. At this point My Computer says the device is a CD-ROM.
Nero 7 was loaded, but has been successfully removed (with no change in behavior)
Here is what I have done
