Hey, this is my first post here. Looks like a great forum!
I have an HP 640c (BenQ 1625). When I place a DVD-R in that drive, it is not recognized in the system at all. Nero says no media present, it appears in XP as nothing in the drive. DirectCD: “media not ready”.
Despite my newbie status in the world in DVD burning, I am no computer neophyte. But I must tell you, I have not been able to figure this one out. I have a Plextor CD burner in the box as well, and I already tried making it the slave to the HP 640 (both secondary).
Should that drive not be compatible with DVD-R media?? It says it should! Now granted, I have only tried one brand: Memorex. I find it hard to believe that this could be media specific though.
Any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated!
