Do you mean still pictures , or moving pictures ?


for still images of the desktop , use the print screen key
and open paint and paste the image there , save it to a folder
to be burned to your DVD player as a BMP or JPEG

Save as Both BMP and a JPEG so that you'll gain compatability.


If this is about recording everything that happens on your monitor as a DVD file

That can be done by using software designed to do that.

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?


This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

How to use the Prt Scr (Print Screen) button.


On every computer keyboard there is a <b>Print Screen</b> button. The basic functionality of this key is to capture the snap-shot/screen-shot of the current screen you are viewing on your monitor and save it as an image file. Once you click this button the screen image is captured and stored in the computer's memory (clipboard). Then you can use the <b>Ctrl + V</b> buttons together to paste it into any image processing software such as <b>Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop or any other Office applications such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.</b> Once you paste it into any of these applications you can save it and then use the image later for any purpose. <br /><br /><b><u>Here are the steps to use the print screen feature.</u></b><br />1) When you have the part you want captured from your monitor exactly as it looks, look for the <b>Prt Scr</b> or <b>Print Screen</b> button on your keyboard and press it once.<br />2) Now navigate to Microsoft Paint: <b>Start&gt;All Programs&gt;Accessories&gt;Paint</b><br />3) Once Paint is open simply press the <b>Ctrl + V</b> keys in combination to paste the screen shot, or you can go <b>Edit&gt;</b>Paste to do the same.<br />4) You can now, resize it, modify it if required and save it under any name you want for later retrieval.<br /><br /><br /><b>NOTE:</b> If you have opened more than one windows in the screen and you want to capture the snap shot of just the active window and not the entire screen, then press the <b>Alt</b> key while pressing the <b>Prt Scr</b> button. This will capture the image of the active window only<br />Now that you have mastered the art of print screen you can use this to capture error messages in applications for you to use when in need of tech support.

I wanna replace the DVDreader/writer in my Acer Z5600 for a Bluray unit reader/writer can I do this myself because Acerservice in Holland don't wanna do this for me...


Looking at the image of the machine; the DVD drive is a vertically loaded slot.
replacing the DVD reader/writer with a Blue Ray one... not entirely sure if it's possible without advice from the manufacturer (contact them to be 100% sure).
because of the physical dimentions of the screen; the DVD drive will be a laptop dvd drive not a normal desktop one.... so you could hunt online for a slot loaded Blue ray drive for a laptop... but again no guarantee without manufacturers confirmation.
most machines past 2005 have SATA connections inside for the optical drives; but also confirm this before spending money.

My dvd writer+dvd rom are not relaying onto monitor from disc +vice-versa eg not able to burn or watch dvd is this because of age 6years.


You may have a disconnected ribbon cable inside the pc.
this will require inspection of the ribbon cable connected to the mother board from the DVD device.
2. the DVD may need to be replace due to age.
3. Most DVD are good for 50,000 hour of play and recording depending on the manufacturers specs.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

I cannot copy pics or text to dvd


Assuming you have a DVD writer installed and functioning in your computer, check the format of your dvds. If you have a writer that uses dvd-rw it may not recognize dvd+r discs. Your label on the dvd package should have the disc format and your documentation for the writer should say what formats will work in the writer.
