    I have a HP DVD-Writer 640b. Its been working perfect and everything.
    All of a sudden, it wont write, or burn, (etc.)
    It can read and even rip audio and everything except burn.
    What can i do?

    Go to hardware manager, and then uninstall your drive and secondary IDE controller. Then reboot and let windows install them again.

    See if that helps.

    if not a laptop drive than can you try the drive in another computer that has a burning program to see if it is a software issue with your burning program or a hardware issue with your burner?

    I last used the program "Regcure". That program even erased my configurations for activex to the point where i had to install the stand alone edition just to watch a video on youtube.

    If I could just get my hands on the necks of that developer!!!!

    try a system restore back before you ran that program.
