I don't know whats wrong, this is my first time to write a CD with this laptop hp dv1680ea. The drive cannot regonise blank or written on CD-Rs. Normal audio CDs it will pick up and blank DVD-Rs and DVDs, but for some reason not CD-Rs?? I've tried uninstalling the drive in device manager and restarting but nothing, (only my recording sofware, Sonic v7 can't see the DVD-ROM drive anymore... super!!!) Anyway the drive comes up as 'HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4084N' on the device manager, the system is WinXP Home. CAN ANYONE HELP????
