|I used Real Player to burn a song from my external hard drive; was fine. I downloaded Express Burn and made a data disk; was fine. I then played a music cd from my collection and it worked. I opened a disk I had letter files on and that was fine.|
I played a dvd video from my collection; it was fine, also.
So, I tried to burn a dvd from my hard drive. I guess it loaded all right, but when it came to burning, it said the disk was not empty. It was a brand new disk. I even bought HP dvd disks, to avoid any problems.
When I put in another blank dvd disk, it said it was burning and the player door opened and I got a message to close the door. You could hear the drive working and when it was done, all I had was an audio_ ts and a video_ ts file, but they were empty.
I am having trouble opening the door to the drive, but that has been ever since I bought this laptop. Compaq sees no problem, yet can duplicate the "no disk in drive".
And, the drive is noisy when it is reading some disks.
I cannot afford a new drive, and as unviolent as am, I might try to shove this laptop...should I ever find a compaq maker.
What else can I do now?
