Question about HP CD-Writer 9900ci CD-RW/DVD-ROM Burner

1 Answer

Copying data on to a DVD

I have an HP 400C DVD writer (CD writer combo). I am able to durn movies but when I go to "copy" files to a DVD disc It does not recognize that I have a disc in the driver. I often have issues with the discs not being recognized. I am thinking that, in this case, the software (files ready to be written to disc) that is in use on this computer only wants to copy to a CD rW. Could that be right? How can I change this - I am trying to make a backup disc and using CD RW would be too much. Help!???

What type of application are you using? I know that the new nero requires you to choose whether you want to write to dvd or cd before it will work. maybe your application is similar.

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.

How do I Copy a Movie (DVD) to a blank DVD?


Unless the movie is allowed to be copied, most movies contain encryption to prevent copying due to the act being illegal.

if you are able to copy the move and it is free to do so, you can use any number of ways. One program you can try free to copy disc to disc is ImgBurn

www.imgburn.com

this is a free cd/dvd writer software for Windows based computers. This shoudl do what you want. if you want more elaborate you can use Nero Burning Rom from www.ahead.com but that is only trial unless you buy it.

good luck

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD


It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.
