Device Manager appearance for the HP DVD Movie Writer

Please note that when the HP DVD Movie Writer is properly installed, you should see two devices.

The device shown under the Sound, video and game controller is the part of the Movie Writer that captures the audio and video.   The drive portion should appear without any software being installed.   The HP DVD Movie Writer portion only appears properly after its driver is installed when you install the rest of the software from the installation CD.  Otherwise, it will have a yellow exclamation point indicating that its driver is missing.  A yellow exclamation point could indicate a number of other issues too, including USB or hardware problems.
