Hi walksinstars,

 

Follow the steps in this document, particulary step 3:

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00817052

 

 

While it is published for desktops, it works on notebooks as well, and is not unique to HP. This is most common when another application with CD burning features is installed on the PC.

"If error code 10 , 19 , 31 , 32 , 39 or 41 is shown inside Device Status, a problem exists with the integration of previous CD burning software. Use Step 3 to remove associated control filters from the registry. "

Hi Gary,

 

Try following the procedure under the sub-heading 'Let me fix it myself' on the link below to remove the Upper and Lower filters and see if this helps the issue.
