I purchased a new HP DV9000 series notebook computer. I've been trying things out slowly but surely to make sure it's in working order. I have a Toshiba HD-DVD drive with multi-DVD, CD burner, etc, etc. I tried burning a normal audio CD this evening using the pre-installed Roxio software as well as Windows Media Player 11. After a few seconds, the CD stops and there's a fairly generic error message that says... error burning to the disc... or something of that nature. I'm using the same Memorex blank CD's I've used on my other laptop. Burning the same files. The HD-DVD drive plays movies without an issue. I've not tried burning a DVD because I don't have any blank media... I checked for driver updates online and nothing came up as being available. Any ideas on where I should go from here...? I can't believe I've had to do so much to this notebook. Shouldn't these things be good to go right out of the box...? i.e., me having to install video codecs over the weekend to get an .avi file to play. Any input would be greatly appreciated, as always.
