i have a pavilion a6442p, dual core, lots of memory and hd, w/ lightscribe dvd supermuliti drive/cd writer and vista home prem. the problem is that it will not burn to any blank dvd(verbatim, tdk, memorex, magnavox etc). i have moved to slowest burning speed, use dvdfab platinum, have nero,. no error messages just popup saying that it will not burn. there is no log file, either. of course, this is after it has started and i ruin the dvd. i have an external liteon and have the same problem if i try to burn on the pavilion. with the liteon, i could use the cheapest media and NEVER have a bad burn. i did not have this problem w/ xp and my old hp. all drivers are up to date as is the dvdfab. any suggestion?
