Cool DVD problems using Roxio
I have a Compaq pressario2100 laptop using XP. I use Roxio CD/DVD easy creator. When I try to create a Dats DVD I get a message that "no supported DVD- Recorders were detected on your system. What do I need to do? I know I have a CD/DVD drive on here.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

I have split your post off into your own thread. It's not good to tack onto an existing thread as it's confusing trying to help more than one person at a time.

Please continue replying here. I'm sure someone will be along to help soon.

I checked there is no upgrade available. I don't see the specs that I listed for my CD/DVD driver. Here they are. My question is why the DVD is not recognized by my computer. My drive doesn't recognize that a DVD has
been inserted. I have never been able to burn A DVD especially when it isn't
even recognized. This is the information I have about my DVD drive:
I have Windows XP. On CD/DVD drive it
says HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N
I also click on properties Where is says DVD/CD-ROM drives , Manufacturer
(Standard CD-ROM drives)
Location 0 ()) Device usage: Use this device (enable) DVD region is set
for United States Driver Prvidor Microsoft Date 7/1/2001, Version
5.1.2535.0Digital Signer Microsoft Windows Publisher Driver File details
C:\\Windows\system32\storprop.dll is highlighted File version 5.1.2600.2180

It's not a DVD burner...however, with the correct DVD software installed, it should play a DVD movie.


DVD-ROM drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N (combo)
DVD-ROM drive speed 8X
CD-ROM drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N (combo)
CD-ROM drive speed 24X
CD-R/RW drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N (combo)

You can download InterVideo WinDVD software from HP's web site for your computer model. Then you can play DVD movies.

Your only option is to buy a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card and an external DVD burner (using your 1.1 is way too slow).

Here is the card you need:

And here's some external DVD burners.

I'd go with the D-Link card and the Lite-On burner.

What DVD burning software came with it?

Roxio can burn cds. I'm not sure if it does DVDs as well.

The new version of Roxio supports DVD burning. Of course a manufacturer is going to include the latest version of the software.
