1. Checked in Device Manager- It stated it was working fine.
2. Took the cover off and checked connections- all tight.
3. Ran my HP diagnostic disk- stated dvd+rw was working properly
3. Uninstalled and re-installed Windows XP Home Edition
Went to the Windows support center and used the automatic fix it they have and it came up with the dvd was not able to write. If that is the case why does everything else say it is working fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated
