Write/Read Problems with GCA4040N

I’ve got this HP laptop, a dv1045LA, for about two and a half years… recently I restored the system and used Sonic RecordNow to burn a couple of DVDs, one failed and the other one had a few errors on a file.

I installed Nero v7, you know, the one you download from the page, and tried to burn DVDs, but couldn’t… tried again with Sonic, but also couldn’t. Now I can’t burn CDs or DVDs! And I can’t read DVDs, only CDs…

I’ve read that Nero sometimes mess up with the firmware of the writer… what can I do? Any suggestions? Thanks :slight_smile:
