Would like to copy my pictures onto a CD


I guess you have a CD writer/Combo or DVD writer on your computer.
Assuming you have Windows XP, I'll answer the question. (If you have Win 7 still you may be able to figure out how to do this after reading these instructions).
Select the pictures you want to copy. Right-click on one of them and select Send To --> (Your CD Writer) from menu. (If you have pictures in several locations you can go to each folder and do this).
You will see a text balloon appearing on bottom right corner saying 'You have files waiting to be written to CD'. Click on this balloon or open the CD writer from 'My Computer'.
Click 'Write these files to CD' from the left. Insert a blank CD and proceed.

Sir my compaq presario model 2655ts coming with philips cd writer and dvd reader is not reading cds and dvd


Hi,
If you are having problem reading and writing cds and dvds. You can try running the following fix it patch from Microsoft. If the same doesn't resolve the problem , then you would have to consider replacing the drive. As the optical drive has a laser lens, that has life duration or capacity to read and burn disks . Once the same is reached you need to replace the drive.

I have a DVD writer installed in my Compaq SR1230NX PC, but I can't figure out how to burn a DVD. When I pull up the options, it looks like I can only write CDs. I am not too good with PCs.


Unfortunately most all computers shipped with a DVD burner installed do not come with actual DVD burning software. XP Home nor any XP format come with them built in either. I can only suggest you buy a burning program such as Roxio Creator 2009 or the like.
I hope that helps.

My lite-on DVD writer is not reading any dvd's as well not writing any DVD's while it is good for CD's..... What is the problem?? How can i correct my DVD writer


Hi Please try and use a different brand of DVD discs. DVD disc quality is sometimes an issue with lite-on drives Also check that you have updated drivers and your media burning software is installed correctly. Again if your using NERO this can be a problem. Try using any other burning software One other thing to try when recording DVDs set the recording speed to lowest Many Thanks Andy

Dvd writer


Hi.
I stick with Pioneer at the moment. I've had so much trouble with many other brands, but Pioneer drives seem very good at writing even low quality discs which tends to be an indication of a good drive.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

Cd burning drive


ARE YOU SURE THATS A CD WRITER NOT JUST A CD ROM. IF ITS A CD WRITER AND YOU ARE USING THE OS AS WINDOWS XP....JUST TRY SENDING THE FILE DIRECTLY TO THE BLANK CD IN THE DRIVE...IF IT BURNS THE CD WRITER IS OK AND THE APPLICATION (NERO OR WATEVER) YOU ARE USING TO BURN THE CD REQUIRES TO BE REINSTALLED
