Re: hp cddvdw sn-208bb hh01 on dv6

Hello Peter101,

 

I also responded to this question in one of your other posts.

 

For anyone that may be having the problem with the drive not being able to read CD’s.

 

You can clear the upper and lower registry values. (Filters)

Occasionally as you play Cd's information is stored in files that can cause the drive to stop working correctly.

Here is a link that will walk you through the steps to clear the filters.

Only remove the items that the steps show.

 

Let me know how everything goes.

 

Have a good day.

Clicking the White Kudos star on the left is a way to say Thanks!

Have a good day.

No the Drive CAN READ CDs but not DVDs. And it can not boot from DVDs in DOS.

To repeat Peter:

"No the Drive CAN READ CDs but not DVDs."

 

I have a HP desktop with W7 Home. The burner is  hp cddvdw sn-208db. It reads and burns blank CD's. It does not read DVD+R's. It used to read them but not now.

Thank you for your time.

 

I ended up fixing it using some simple advice from a tech forum. For Win7, it went: Device manager/ DVD/CD -ROM drives/right click on the problem drive/click on uninstall. The computer was then restarted and the drive was automatically re-installed. Works great now.
