I'd rather be kicked in the nuts than install HP equipment. They have good hardware (I think, never got one to work 100%) but their software is horrible.
Here's a story:
1- bought HP external CD burner.
2- hooked up and loaded software.
3- chose burner to be drive F:
4- Finished install and my ZIP no longer works
5- Neither does burner
6- Unload program
7- Reload ZIP driver, HP eliminated DVD
8- Try reload
9- DVD drive disappears
10- burner doesn't work
11- can't get DVD to work.
12- give up and start beer consumption
1- Unload program
2- no DVD
3- 4 hours lapse
4- finally find an obscure cure on Google, reload windows media is recommended.
5- Try it, I'm desperate
6- DVD works again! :wtf:
7- pack up burner
8- return to store return HP unit
What fun that was.
