I have revieved all of the forum about my dvd-rw of my HP Pavilion DV1317AP notebook. I was doing well with it since last year but in the last few months it started not to burn dvd and vcds. Not to read some vcd s and erratic sound on dvd movies. I have cleared the lens with a brush cleaner vcd but it did not help. I am now looking for a way to get a new drive (double layer). Which dvd-rw do you suggest and will it fit at the same slot without a problem on software? Thank you.
Any slimtype drive which has the correct/suitable firmware will fit and work.
