    I have a HP dvd940i internal dvd burner and it has a real problem reading scratched dvds. But the same disks work in my buddies old toshiba dvd burner. I am looking into purchasing another dvd burner. Any thoughts on which DVD burners read scratched discs better than others??? What should I buy/or not. Obviously not another HP. Thanks

    For the most part, the best readers are DVD-ROM drive, not burners. I don't know if that's universally true. However, I have an old Optorite DD0405 (8x DVD+R, 4x DVD-R, no DL) burner that is superb at reading damaged discs; if my burner can't read it, it probably can't be read. I think it was sold as I/O Magic (Staples) though they use a different make now. You might be able to track one down on eBay, but, frankly, you might be better-served just getting a $20 DVD-ROM drive online.
