I purchases a Hewlett Packard Pavillion DV9000T Notebook computer in February. It came with a DVD+RW DL Lightscribe CD/DVD drive. I did not order a remote control. However, there is a very basic remote control that comes as part of the system. I had been using this to play DVDs but the battery ran out in about 6-8 weeks. I am attempting to determine if this is normal for these types of remotes or did the remote come with a half charged battery to start with? Although I was able to pick up two replacement batteries for five bucks and change, I don't think I want to be buying batteries every few months if this is the regular rate of use.
