My problem is that few days ago it has stopped reading dvds while it continues to read cds. i have reinstalled the windows many times and also searched for it’s driver but still no avail. it has also stopped to burn dvd-r and dvd-rw.


A couple of things you can try:

  1. Go to Device Manager, find the IDE port that the HP drive is on, uninstall, reboot, and let Windows rebuild the default driver. No need to reinstall Windows.
  2. Replace the IDE cable with a new 80-pin conductor type.
