My first computer was a HP pavillion. I bought this pc about 6 years ago.Anyway, I stored thousands of mp3 files on cdr-s.The burner I used at the time was a hp8250i,I believe.I never had any problems with this burner.
I sold this pc about 2 years ago.
I am building a pc at the moment,but my mom has a new HP Pavillion Slimline.This has a DVD/CDR combination drive.I tried view some of my cdr's,but this drive does not recognize any of the data on these disc's.In fact it reads it as a blank disc.
I have used these data disc's to burn music,but that was with the original burner,which I no longer own.
