What speed are you burning at? Might want to try 4x if that is the slowest you can go.

Also are you burning Data or Video?

Update to latest HP firmware? Or cross-flash the drive to a LiteOn and use improved firmware from this forum (may void any remaining warranty). See this thread.

data mostly like backing up stuff its only because i cannot afford verb i know there the best but i tried my luck at these. is there a drive that will take any dual layer around?

i flashed my drive and so far its burnt one dual layer
with it being a LITE on now lol my drives a lil faker
lol
