I have a HP Pavillion a768, which came with a PHILIPS CDD4801 CD-RW. My problem is that I cannot burn 700Mb 4x-12x RW-Discs. As the CDD4801 is a 8x4x32x drive, I should be able to use this disks, shouldn't I? This subject brought me to these forums on www.cdrinfo.com.
After researching in several topics, I took the following actions:
- upgraded the firmware from 2.0 to 2.5
- upgraded the ASPI to 4.7.2
At first drive did not recognize the disks at all.
I tried using Nero 5.5, Easy Creator and RecordNow.
After the upgrades, it recognizes the disk but I'm still not able to burn them. Both in Nero and Easy Creator, I got strange error messages, and in RecordNow, it returned that the disks where not compatible with my CD-RW drive.
I've already lost several nights of sleep and could not come up with a solution.
P.S.: Before installing ASPI 4.7.2, I used the ASPIFIX from Laffin Assassin and it did not seem to work either.
P.S.2: My OS is Windows 2000 Server
