Windows 7: HP Can't Detect DVD/CD Buring Drive

10 Aug 2009   #1

HP Can't Detect DVD/CD Buring Drive

Installed W7. But in Device Manager, it shows 5 drivers that didn't install. There are 4 listed as "Base System Device" and 1 as "Unknown Device". I've installed all the drivers from HP's site, but that didn't help.

The main issue though is the CD/DVD/Blu-Ray Rom drive doesn't detect in any burning programs. It shows as installed fine, but burning programs can't access it. Any help would be great!

If build-in system DVD burner work fine you need only install ASPI

download FrogAspi Frog Aspi - Downloads
(when you download make sure the module is already renamed to wnaspi32.dll -otherwise you have to rename)

if you have x64 system place wnaspi32.dll in C:\Windows\SYSWOW64 again uninstall DVD driver + restart

if you have x32 system place wnaspi32.dll in C:\Windows\System32 again uninstall DVD driver + restart
