I recently purchased a HP DVD 640i verson C. I also purchased DVDPlatinum.
Initialy I was able to burn some backup copies of some movies I purchased. As I see recommended, I updated the firmware for the DVD 640i. I am getting very erratic success burning copies now. Using DVDGold I get to the prompt to Insert a disk for a burn but the drive does not see the disk. I have tried various disks. Memorex DVD +R 8x and 16x (I have not heard good things about these but…), Imation, and recently (when I enable the double layer burning function in DVDGold) Verbatim DVD +R DL no success. I even copied directly to the hard drive then tried burning from there with DVDGold. Same problem
I read on this site about disabling the XP burning function. could this be part of the problem?
Any problems with the 640i ? I believe that I read somewhere that BenQ makes this drive for HP. Is that correct?
