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.

    The resource CD is fine. My D drive will not run. There is no down load for the disk drive and it shows no driver for my D drive. Thanks for trying

    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.

I reinstalled xp home ed. And then reinstalled all the dell resource cd's.iam not sure if there is a certain order that you have to install the resource cd's And the drivers on them but I can't...


Hello there.

I suggest you to download software called Driver Robot (freeware)
http://www.fileserve.com/file/X8pSHAP/ParadiseW.net_Driver_Robo_2.5_Build_3.0.rar

When you install it, open and click scan. When it finished click report to a file, save that file and open it. Click get drivers, find drivers you need, download and install it. Restart your computer.
Otherwise, put your dell resource cd in pc, go to device manager, right click on the yellow driver and choose update driver. Choose browse my computer, and then in the field include in in search, find cd, and click next and it will find it and install for you.



I hope I was helpfull.



Sincerely,

My Kodak Picture CD will not auto load


If your computer is operating with WINDOWS 95, WINDOWS 98, or WINDOWS NT 4.0 Systems, this CD contains software that automatically launches when you insert the CD. Getting Started:
Insert your Picture CD disc and wait for the software to load (it could take as long as 5 minutes, depending on your machine configuration, CD drive speed, and the number of images on the Picture CD).
Note: This loading process installs some Picture CD program files onto your hard drive. The KODAK Picture CD installer walks you through the steps. The final step may be to restart your computer. If so, be sure to restart to complete the installation.
After your computer has rebooted:
  1. Eject the Picture CD and re-insert it into the CD drive.
    The program should launch automatically.
  2. Click the magazine cover to turn to the Contents Page.
  3. Follow the links to read and do more with your digital photos.
If nothing happens after waiting for the Auto Play, you may need to manually start the Auto Play program. (Auto Play is a program that starts up the CD installation process the first time you use the CD.)
To manually start Auto Play:
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon.
  2. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the Device Manager tab.
  4. Click the CD-ROM drive icon; click the "+" to view the CD-ROM drive information.
  5. Double-click the CD-ROM driver icon.
  6. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  7. Click Settings.
  8. Check Auto insert notification and click OK.
Note: This enables all CDs to automatically run any Auto Play software.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)
