I have a HP dvd1170e External 22X Multiformat DVD Writer. I’m not at all good with these type of things, so forgive me if I’m wrong when I believe that it can burn DVDs (initially purchasing it for reading dvd purposes).
I’ve tried a bunch of different burners but none of them seem to recognize it except Nero. WinAVI either doesn’t detect any burner when I plug it in or it shows as “HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8483B” which I don’t understand at all. Nero detects “HP DVD Writer 1170d” but the option to burn it is grayed out. ImgBurn has “No Writers Detected” I’ve even tried ReaPlayer, and it says on the side that it could not locate a CD burner on my computer even when I select “Video (DVD/VCD) Burner”.
I’m getting really frustrated at this, so if anyone could offer any suggestions on what I could do, I would be very grateful. x.x
