Resource CD and D drive

I can not use my D-drive to install software. It will play a music cd. When I click on D- drive under my computer I get the message, Is not accessible, incorrect funtion. I tried to use my Dell resource CD and it will not run. When I go into my programs and click on Dell resource CD the window opens for repair or un-install. When I click on repair I get the same message. Is not accessible, incorrect function. Where did it go? I need help please.

    Please confirm the exact wording of the error message you get when you try to use the CD-ROM drive. I do not recognise the error message "Is not accessible, incorrect funtion".

    If you can provide this message I can try to help you solve your problem.

    Best wishes.

Try the Resource CD in another computer to see if the CD is bad or your CD drive. Also check to see if the Resource disk is in CD or DVD format. If you need software drivers for your computer, you can also go to Dell’s website and download them. Go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the computer. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Download rcd msi


I suspect you are using a Dell computer. The RCD.msi is Dell's Resource CD installation program. I'd recommend that you contact Dell on how to proceed.

Code error


Before following the suggestions given below please make sure that you have the latest firmware for your DVD burner drive. Please contact your vendor or visit the manufacturer's website for the latest updates.

Please follow the steps mentioned below to resolve the issue:

1) Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. Then empty Recycle Bin.

2) Defragment your hard drive. DVD video files are very large and can quickly fill your hard drive to capacity. A fragmented hard drive can cause problems during DVD burning. Make sure to defragment your drive(s) regularly.

3) To avoid any compatibility issues, please close all other software and utility applications including virus scans, screen saver and instant messaging software before you launch PowerDirector.

4) Increase Virtual memory :

1. Right click on "MyComputer"
2. Select Properties -> Advance
3. Click on "settings" under Performance.
4. Select "Advance"
5. Click on "change" under Virtual memory.
6. Select "Custom" and enter initial value as "512" and Max value as "3096".

NOTE: If your existing settings are higher than recommended then leave them as before.

5) Please check whether the drive where you have installed Power Director software has enough space on it. At least 15 GB of free space is required and recommended while burning a DVD.

Now, try to burn the DVD at low burning speed.

If the issue still persists, try to uninstall other CD/DVD burning software like Nero, EasyCD Creator, Direct CD etc. Two burning software installed on same computer are known to cause conflict due to common files in them.

Also disable the XP built-in burning software. To disable the Windows built-in burning software:
- Open My Computer.
- Right-click your CD-RW or DVD drive and click Properties.
- Select the Recording tab.
- Remove the check mark from the 'Enable CD recording on this drive' check box.
- Click OK.

Also make sure that the total size of the video does not exceed the disc limit. (It is recommended that the total size should be less than 4.3 GB)

Now, close all other software and utility applications and then try the 'Create a DVD folder' option in the burning options screen and let us know of the result.

If the DVD folder is burned successfully, then the issue is burner specific and not software specific.

If the issue still not resolved, you may need to reinstall the Power Director software. Uninstall other burning softwares and then reinstall Power Director.

Follow the steps given below to reinstall your PowerDirector. Before installing your program, please close your MSN messenger, since we found that MSN messenger my lock some installation programs.

i) Uninstall PowerDirector software:

a.)Start--> Programs -->Cyberlink PowerDirector --> Uninstall PowerDirector

b.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

c.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

d)Reboot your PC.

ii) Reinstall PowerDirector. (NOTE: Before installation please close MSN Messenger, if open)

Now try again to 'Create a DVD folder'.

Go ahead with burning DVD only if the DVD folder is created successfully and without errors.

How to convert M4P music to MP3


The music and audiobook files you purchased from online stores are protected by DRM. But most mobile players doesn't support DRM format. However you can burn the protected music files to CD-R/RW disc to make an audio CD, then use CD ripper softwares to rip the audio cd track back to MP3, WAV, WMA etc.
There are two ways to convert M4P music to MP3. One way is to use itunes for sophisticated computer user, another way is to use third party program for beginner, which is much easier.Following the steps , then get your job one easily.
Part one: Using itunes to converting M4p music
Step 1: Run iTunes and set burner options firstly. You can choose
Edit>Preferences>Advanced>Burning menu and then select your CD burner.
Note: If you don't have a physical burner, you may use a virtual burner program, NoteBurner. Go to http://www.noteburner.com to download the program. After you install it, you can choose NoteBurner Virtual CD-RW as what you do in the first step.
Step 2: Create a new playlist in iTunes and add all m4p files you want to convert to this new list.
Note: If you use NoteBurner, you need to select the output format in NoteBurner. After you click Settings button, you can set the output as MP3, WAV and WMA.
Step 3: Click Burn Disc button in iTunes to starting the burning. If you use NoteBurner, this is the final step since the program can rip back the burned music automatically. The output folder will be open automatically after all music finishes encoding.
Note: If you burn the m4p files on real CD, you need to rip the music back in iTunes. Open iTunes Edit>Preferences>Advanced menu and click small Importing tab inside the Advanced tab to choose "WAV encoder" or "AIFF Encoder" in the "Import Using" dropdown. In the left-hand panel under "Devices", select the CD that you burned
Step 4: In the main window opposite, deselect any CD track(s) you do not want to convert. Right-click or control-click over them, and choose the "convert to AIFF" or "convert to WAV" option.
Step 5: After the conversion, you may find the converted file at C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorMy DocumentsMy MusiciTunesiTunes Music
Part two: Using third party program to convert M4p music
Comparing to the previous method, the following is more simple and easier, you can finish the job with just several clicks.
Step 1: Free download M4P Converter, install and run it.
Step 2: Clicking "Add" or directly drag-drop protected M4P files. Batch M4P to MP3 conversion supported.
Step 3: In the "Setting" button, choose MP3 format (*.mp3), you can also custom the music.

There are several ways to achieve this, below I've listed two.
  1. Purchase an external USB CD/DVD Drive.
  2. Create a disk image of the CD, transfer the image to your new machine, then use a virtual disk to mount the image and use it as you would a normal CD drive.
Obviously, the first option is going to be the easiest to do. However, it'll cost you, on average, about $40 dollars.
The second option is time consuming and confusing to a novice or someone who may not have done it before. I'll go ahead and explain how to do it, in case you're looking to save money.
First, we need to create the image file.

  1. Download and install MagicISO on to a machine with an optical drive. (The free version has all the features you'll need, there is no need to purchase it.)
  2. Insert your Quark XPress CD into the systems optical drive.
  3. Under the start menu, find an open MagicISO
  4. With MagicISO open, click on Tools > Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM
  5. In the Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM dialog, click the drop-down menu next to CD/DVD-Driver and select the device that has your CD in it.
  6. In the Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM dialog, click the icon of a folder next to the Output File input field, browse to your Desktop and enter an appropriate file name. (eg. Quark XPress 8.1.6.uif)
  7. Click OK
Now that we've created the image file, we need to transfer it to your new computer. If the Quark XPress 8.1.6 was in-fact a CD and not a DVD, the disk image shouldn't be any larger than 700MB. Therefore, if you have USB Thumb Drive 1GB or larger, you can use it to transfer the image.
Alternatively, if you connect them both to the same LAN (Local Area Network) and transfer the files over the network. To do this:

  1. On the machine with the disk image, go to click Start then type "sharing" and open the Network and Sharing Center
  2. In the left column, click on Change advanced sharing settings
  3. Now ensure that Public folder sharing is turned on.
  4. Browse to your Desktop and select the image file, press Ctrl + X to Cut the file.
  5. Next, browse to C:\Users\Public\Downloads and press Ctrl + V to Paste the image file.
  6. On your new laptop, ensure that you're connected to the network.
  7. Now, open My Computer and in the left column click on Network
  8. The other system should appear, click on it, then open Users > Public > Downloads.
  9. You should now see the image file, select it and press Ctrl + C to Copy it.
  10. Browse to the Desktop on and press Ctrl + V to paste it and wait for it to transfer. Depending on your network speeds, and wireless signal quality, it may take several minutes.
Lastly, you need to be able to install the software. Therefore, we'll create a virtual disk.

  1. Download and install MagicDisk (Freeware)
  2. After it's installed, it will automatically run. You will find an icon of a hand holding a disk in the Windows Taskbar (next to the clock).
  3. MagicDisk should automatically create one virtual disk. However, to make sure, right-click on the icon and hover over Set Number of Drives then click 1 Drive in the sub-menu.
  4. Now, right-click the icon again, hover over Virtual CD/DVD-ROM. One item should appear as a sub-menu, it should say something like E: No Media. Mouse-over the sub-menu, then in the 3rd-tier menu select Mount.
  5. A new dialog will appear, browse to your Desktop and select your image file. Click Open
  6. Your virtual drive should now auto-play the disk image. If it does not, you can launch it manually under My Computer.
As a final note, if you are not on the same network and don't have any physical medium to transfer the files, you can always upload the file to a free file sharing or data backup service such as DropBox (provided that the file is not too large). However, this will likely take a long time as it's dependent on your internet connections speed.

Hi! I have Windows XP (SP3) installed on this computer. It has CD/DVD drive but the Cyberlink PowerDVD software packkage no longer exists on the hard drive. I do not wish to restore to an earlier date,...


the software suite isn't working? sometimes the installed apps may save a basic copy of the install app on your hard drive. however, you may still need the activation code in order to use the app in question.
also why do you need to do a system restore in the first place? did one of your apps crash on you? this would simple if that is the case, simply re-install that app, however, if is just the power dvd 5 then please search for your software cd's. you know those music cd holders work wonders for holding your computer software cd's too! i have 2x 300 cd holder books that i use for keeping all of my computer software cd's in. just mark the cd holder book for computer cd's only that way nothing else gets put into the cd holder book.
hope this was some help. have a gr8 day

You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs ...does this mean.. to burn the cd onto the computer?


Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa

Dell Resource CD - not working in Windows XP SP3 version


You are using the Dell Resource CD provided by the manufacturer. This CD may not work with new versions of Internet Explorer that come with SP3 installations (if you reinstalled from a Windows XP CD not provided by Dell or if you did the Microsoft SP3 update).
You're only solution would be to use your "Service Tag" number underneath, for laptops (or on the back/side for Desktops), of your computer and go to http://support.dell.com to download the drivers for your specific system. If this computer doesn't have the drivers for you to be able to go to the internet, use a second computer and go to the site. Then download the individual drivers listed (the latest dated drivers will work best).
Once you've downloaded mainly the Video, Network, Audio drivers, use a USB Flash drive (sometimes called USB Key, USB pen drive, USB drive, etc) and copy what's been downloaded onto it. Do not double click on the files while they're on the second computer.
Once on the machine with Windows XP SP3, double click on each downloaded file (1 at a time) and follow the on-screen insctructions to install the driver. You should be fine afterwards. :) Let us know how it goes, and rate us. :)

Downloading software


I feel someone is a little peeved but hey calm down
'HONESTLY.... NO WORRIES & NO PROBLEM'
You have a disk to download music.

Is this a floppy disk or is it a cd?

Some computers nowadays dont come with floppy drives due to They are a little out of date.

Most drivers/programs ect.. are now usually on cd or dvd because it is quicker/easier & well.... Quite cheap.
Now then...
1 stly. If it is a floppy disk read what it says on the front & do a google search for the exact same software
for example...
google (blah blah blah software free download)

& download / run
(blah blah blah) being the software name

IF you have a cd & the cd is smaller than the usual size cd
(DONT WORRY)
These smaller disks are no different to an ordanary cd except they have less disk space on them & they are cheaper.

Put it in your disk drive (In the centre) Close the drive & double click (if it doesnt auto-run) on your cd drive & click on the program & it should load up all being Well.
Note:
You DO NOT have to install software for putting music onto these mp3 players.
If you have a music cd,you Could copy it onto the mp3 just buy popping the cd into the cd drive & copying the track to the mp3 player.
You Also DO NOT have to have software for downloading music onto your mp3 players.
Head over to the I.tunes website (for example) search & find the music you want & download to your mp3.
