    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.
