I just want to say that the HP dvd740i DVD Writer is a complete piece of shit / junk. I did have a TDK 420N and it burned my ripped DVDs fine (I sold it to a friend before I knew the new writer was crap). The back-ups played on all players I ever put disc into. Then I got a new PC and it came with a HP dvd740i DVD Writer. Now, when I try to back-up movies, the discs donâ€™t work on any playerâ€¦Iâ€™m using the same programs as before (DVD Decrypter / Nero). Even data back-ups will sometimes cause problems. Itâ€™s not meâ€¦Iâ€™ve been burning DVDs for a long timeâ€¦ HP dvd740i DVD Writer is a complete piece of shitâ€¦Iâ€™m pissed.
