Download and run ImgBurn.
Click 'Write files/folders to disc'.
Click 'Tools' > 'Drive Capabilities' and verify that there are checkmarks in the 'Write' section for DVD.
Click 'Tools' > 'Drive' > 'Check for firmware update's.
Note the firmware version and let it try to find an update.
If no update found, go to the HP site and search for a firmware update.

What brand of blank DVD are you using.
