    Default My HP nc6230 doesn't read DVD+R discs

    I had this thing running on a tablet OS (don't ask me why) and it didn't work then, but I dont blame it, NOW I got it running WinXP SP2 and it STILL doesn't run DVD+R's. Am I missing a driver or something? I looked for one at HP.com but they didn't have any. Can this thing even run DVD+R's? If so, what do I need to do? All answers are appreciated

    If your drive isn't a DVD+/-RW drive, it won't work. You need to check your specific notebook product number for the specs.

    I find it tough to digest the logic that you have proposed chrixx. What kind of DVD will the drive read if it isn't DVD+/- RW and can't read DVD R's either?

    I meant not knowing what kind of drive the OP's notebook came with, we're not sure if it will even work.

    So the firmware update doesn't help? What brand of discs do you have?

    hmm. this is kind of annoying, I try to install the firmware, and it tells me "Target Drive is not connected"...... my drive IS connected because i've been playing games on it. I need some help.
