azcamper Posted January 6, 2007 Report Share Posted January 6, 2007 After installing Easy CD & DVD Burning (should be latest version since it was recently purchased from Best Buy), the HP840b DVD SuperMulti Drive/CD Writer drive was not recognized by ECDB software or existing HP media center software. I uninstalled the ECDB software and now the optical drive is working OK except it won't recognize blank DVDs. Also SONIC MYDVD Plus software says "No Drive Detected" in the "Destination Selection" field. All of this used to work. At this point, I am just trying to get the optical drive to work the way it did prior to installing/uninstalling ECDB. More info: Windows XP Media Edition with all Microsoft updates. CD-R CD-RW read and write all works. DVD read of video and data disks works. I have run "roxiozap.exe" and "DriveFixEZ_Uninstalled.exe" which had no affect. I have also been to the HP support site and installed the HP840b latest firmware and lightscribe software updates. I suspect something got messed up in the registry and am thinking I need to do the "remove HP840b in device manager, edit the registry and reboot to reinstall driver". Does this sound like the logical thing to try at this point. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
