I recently purchased this burner for my little sister & she was so stoked & already purchased DVD's, so they were opened & now the store will not take them back. The problem is that the HP DC5000 DVD Movie Writer will only Burn on HP CD's & Sony CD's??? Or so the HP Tech informed us, & on other BB’s I've noticed that this Drive is limited to those two kinds of CD's. Now does anyone know of a way to get that burner to Burn any DVD/Rom, when we put a blank disc in the drive it says CD is not recognizable? Because HP & SONY DVD’s are boo-coo-bucks….sigh.. I’ve heard of ways to change the Firmware on drives so that they can play other regions & ways for some Burners to burn any brand of DVD’s & CDR’s…?? Is this true? & has anyone heard of one for this drive? Thanks..
