Finding the Model Number

  • PrintPrint
How do I find the model number of my HP CD-Writer drive?
Use one of the methods described below to identify the CD-Writer model.

Method one

Find the model series number on the front of the HP CD-Writer drive (Figure 1).
NOTE: CD-Writer drives are grouped by series. The primary difference between drives in a series is the software that came with the drive. Once the CD-Writer model series number is located, select the appropriate model in the series for product support.

Method two

Identify the CD-Writer by a sticker on the drive. The appearance of this sticker will vary according to drive model. For some models, the label will contain only the product number. Refer to Table 1 below using the product number to find the associated model number.
  • For external CD-Writers, a sticker with the model number is on the bottom of the HP CD-Writer drive. See Figure 2 for an example of the sticker.
  • Internal CD-Writers will have the sticker either on top, on the side and/or on the underneath side of the drive tray. See Figure 3 for an example of the stickers.

Table with series, product number, and associated product model

Look at the front of the HP CD-Writer drive for the drive series and the label on the drive for the product number. If the CD-Writer came pre-installed in an HP computer and is not on this list, you can find information about the CD-Writer by searching HP's Web site on the HP computer model.
