Re: hp DVD-RAM UJ8B1

The specs say it should read but not write -DL media. What type of media are you trying to read?

Hi!

 

I have the licensing disk with SolidWorks software, value is 5,45 GBt. 

All "normal" (SL) disks drive read without problems.

Unfortunately, I can't try any other DL disk.

I have a new HP Pavilion dv7-6140eo with the UJ8B1 optical drive.

 

The drive struggles for minutes before it can read dual layer dvd's.

 

In my case the game: "The elder scrolls V: Skyrim"

 

Firmware update?

 

Piece of **bleep** quality screen with really bad blackness and viewing angle, and now a optical drive

that can't read dual layer discs.

 

I'm very disappointed.

I contacted HP and they sent out a replacement drive.

 

I now have the HP CDDVDW TS-L633R drive.

 

It reads dual layer dvd's with no problems.

 

Problem solved!
