I searched the forums before making this post. My problem is that my hp dvd writer 200j won't recognize blank media. My system is an hp pavilion 754n, with a 2.53 Ghz P4 and a gig of ram. I got it from my future father in law and it has been somewhat frankensteined, so I don't know how many of the pavilion stats still apply.
One other post I read was saying that the 200 series will only read + media (DVD+R/RW, CD+R/RW) is there any type of firmware or driver update to fix this, if this is the case?
Are there any other problems that could cause this otherwise? the only blank media I have on hand is DVD-R (Memorex... I know... I was almost broke)
It does recognize all of my actual dvds and games and audio cds, etc. General playback and installs no problem.
The main project I was hoping to pull off was backing up alot of my files since I am going to be installing a 2nd hard drive and removing the partition from the first.
