Hp dvd writer 400c cannot read any disc

vbimport

#1

Was trying to burn a cd but the writer did not recognize the disc, it kept asking me to put a disc in when there was already one there. I also tried to just put in a music cd but it could not recognize that either. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that did not work.
i have a hp pavilion a556x running XP. Have had this for a few years with no problem at all, also did not add new software or hardware that might have made something like this happen…Please help…

That burner is really old, it doesnt accept blank media that has a different rating (speed, size).

What “any” media have you tried with?


#3

I tried a regular music cd and the burner does not recognize that either, in the past it always could.

You have to be more specific if you want to get advice…

“In the past” means when?
