Question about BenQ (5232X-0C1) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

Benq CDRW 5232X drive, running on Win XP.

I have a Benq CDRW 5232X drive, running on Win XP. Until the other day I could move files to the CDRW disc by dragging, etc. Now I am unable to drag or send any file to the disc, although Device Manager states that it is working properly. If I insert any pre-recorded CD into the drive, nothing happens. If I put in a disc and type a Run instruction, I get a message telling me to insert a disc into the drive. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Can I change my windows 7 computer to XP with an XP disk


yes --
But you will loose all of your files and folders when you format the hard dive to install win xp
you cannot run 2 operating systems on the one hard drive unless the hard drive is partitioned ( in effect having 2 hard drives on the one disc) as it causes massive conflicts in operation
Why any one would install an out dated , unsupported operating system like win xp in place of win 7 beats me
of course if you insist in doing it you could always install and extra hard drive in the computer and run it as an extra hard drive and install the win xp on it and still retain all of your files and folders

How do I find the folders with the files intact on a secondary internal drive, so I can move and back them up to the C: drive and an external drive?


This is an XP machine, which is no longer supported. I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and OS. After you get the newer machine, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the old hard drive(s), and copy any important files to the newer machine. Good luck.

I have several files on the computer which I would like to move to a CD....i.e. pictures, or documents. I am doing something wrong because it does not allow me to copy a file to a CD???? probably my lack...


You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd)
You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.

To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive
Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time)
Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open)
Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened
You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc)
You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc")
Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc"
Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish

You can add about 700MB of files onto each CD

Data on a read only cdrw cannot be deleted from a Comaq pressario running widows xp


Dear sir,
your Comaq DVD drive is only a DVD R(Read) drive? or its RW(Read Write) drive.
If its simply DVD drive then it cant write or erase CD content. If its RW then you can. just use NERO software.

When cdrw is inserted into d12 digital recorder msg display says no disc drive and after about 20mins whole thing freezes until cdrw is removed


try using a different type/brand of cdrw you may have a bad batch of cheap cdrw as for the freezing if this does not fix the problem try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
good luck with this

I am unable to install win Xp. when trying to boot from a cd to install fresh win xp ser. 2. system reboot after copying few installation files. The Bios set up shows the Sata Hard Drive but unable to load...


your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])

If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.

If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..

Not Reading/writing not even detecting


You need to check the bios on start up. You should have your CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.
