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:
- 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.
- Replace the IDE cable with a new 80-pin conductor type.
