Re: Sony Personel Component System PMC-107

Hubert,Try to clean the lens by running a "laser lens cleaner" CD. I don't know the cost for a new Sony Personel Component System PMC-107, but you should decide if it worth a repair cost of 90$ Can, or it will be better to buy a new system. In any case if the lens cleaning will not solve your problem, ask for a second opinion from one more repair man. Good luck

Hello Hubert, first advice is to stay away from that repair man! Seriously now, the thing I would do first, and you may have already, is to get a cd/dvd cleaner from any place like Best Buy, Radio Shack, or even like a walmart, it is cheap and has worked for me many times. If this does now solve the problem, you can EASILY replace your cd rom for about $20.00, and this would include a dvd player as well. Let us know if you need any more help or information. Best regards, nightdiver

Cd player dont work

Is it a CD player? Are you trying to play DVDs? Does the CD player show up in device manager? (Right click "My Computer", click Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. If it doesn't show up at all then the drive probably needs to be replaced.

Hi, you can download drivers here:

Please unzip the file before installation.

Your mainboard is too old to run windows 7 as it is 10 years old.
There is no drivers for that operating system anyway.

Consider to buy a newer pc compatible with windows 7.

Hi. I have a Samsung Sansa MP3 clip-on player. I listen to audio books all the time. I order an audio book online. It comes to me in either a regular CD or an MP3 version (however they manufacture it)....

Normally MP3 players can only play music/audio files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

  1. Check your computer to see that it has a CD or DVD drive that is capable of burning CDs. This drive may be built into your computer or an external drive. Either type should work equally well.
  2. Make sure you have a CD that can be burned. There are two types of CDs that you can use.
    1. A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium. This means that once the disk is burned it can not be erased. This type disk is usually used for permanent storage. For example; a music CD, a picture CD, or any other type of data that you want to keep permanently.
    2. A CD-RW (Compact Disc ReWritable) is a rewritable optical disc format. This type of disk can be burned, erase, and then burned again. This type disk is usually used for temporary data storage.
  3. Decide on the type of CD you plan to burn. There are many different types of CDs that can be burned and how you proceed depends on which type you are going to burn. The major types of CD that can be burned are:
    1. Music. This type of CD is the type of CD that is normaly burned for use in a home or automobile CD player.
    2. Data. This type of CD is most often used to store files that can be used by a computer. This type of CD can not be used in a standard home or automobile CD player. They are formatted using the "ISO9660" format, which cannot be read by a standard CD player.
    3. MP3. This is a data CD containing only mp3 compressed music files. Because it is actually an ISO9660 data CD, not all CD players will be able to play it. This type of CD can contain a much larger number of songs than a music CD but can only be played on a computer or CD player specifically designed to play MP3s.
    4. Disk image. A disk image file is a file that contains an exact copy of a disk. The most common type of Disk image is an .ISO image. Disk images are usually used for storing an exact copy of a CD on a computer. By using a computer, one can burn a CD from an .ISO image and create a usable CD.
    5. Ripping. Ripping a CD is the process of taking the audio off of one CD and either storing it on a computer or burning it to a second CD, thereby making a copy of the first CD.

  4. Decide on the software you want to burn your CD with. There are many different programs that are designed to burn CD's. Some are built into the computer's operating system, while others are individual programs. These programs range from very simple to very complex. Some of these are free, while others have to be purchased.

  5. Burn your CD. Burning your CD is as simple as running the software that you are going to burn your CD with, putting a CD into your CD burner, selecting the data to be burned, and then telling the program to burn the CD

Same just happened to me. I was using SONY CD-R audio 80 min recordable CDs. One burned 3 songs, the other 4 songs before giving me the "CD write failure" message. I tried another brand of CD-R, TDK CD-R, certified plus, and it worked first time. It played on my CD player, on the Ion, etc - works. Maybe the CD burner in the device is very picky as to the brand or quality of the CD-R media? Try a TDK or other to see if that will do it.
-Good luck! Bill

Components guide

Here you want to specify that like which type of component guide you need.I will guide you a few component.
First, you want to know the motherboard(the computer's main power adopter to different components).The motherboard is sharing the power to the different components like RAM,HDD,DVD R-W etc, which is coming from the power supply.It works like that.
Second,you want to know the PROCESSOR which is the heart of motherboard or computer.It deals with the part of the computer to do various processes on computer as user gives.
Third,you want to know the HDD which is the brain where you can save your personel documents,games,etc.
I hope you are sattisfied by my answer.
