DVD's won't play in my TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Diablo played fine in it, but no DVD's.


Try this...
Go to device manager right click on and un-install the DVD drive. Then restart the computer and wait for the "Found New Hardware" balloon message to disappear. That reloads the drivers. Then put in a dvd and see if it works.
Also, you may have inadvertently turned off autoplay. If so, turn it back on. See here...

How to Erase a Burned CD


CD-RW stands for CD re-writeable. This type of disc can be written on or "burned" multiple times. However, in order to burn music or data onto a CD-RW that already has something on it, you must first erase the current contents of the disc. No special software is needed to do this, as you can do it with the Windows Media Player program, which already comes installed on all computers with the Windows operating system. Regular CD-R discs cannot be erased or reused--the discs must be labeled as CD-RW.

Instructions
Step 1.
Click on the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Select "Windows Media Player" from the pop-up menu.
Step 2.
Select the "Library" tab in the main Windows Media Player screen.
Step 3.
Insert the CD-RW that you want to erase in the CD-ROM drive. Close the "AutoPlay" window if it appears.
Step 4.
Right-click the CD-ROM drive in the "Navigation" pane on the left side of Windows Media Player. Select "Erase disc" from the drop-down menu. This will automatically erase the contents of the disc.

Can i use my emachine recovery disk on my gateway after i install a new hard drive on my gateway?


No, you can't. (Well, it might be possible, but very unlikely, that it would work.) Recovery discs are made for specific machines. There are a couple of reasons why the discs for one system can't be used for another brand or model.

In addition to installing the operating system (Windows), recovery discs also include drivers for the machine's included hardware (video, sound, media card slots, etc.). The drivers on the recovery disc for an eMachines system won't have what a Gateway system needs, unless they were built using exactly the same motherboard and other parts, which would be quite unusual. If wrong hardware drivers are installed, Windows may not start and give you the famous "blue screen of death". Or Windows will start, then begin finding new hardware and asking you for drivers you won't have (although you could find them at the Gateway website). The discs also include the applications the manufacturer preloaded on the system. Some of these may not work and cause problems because of the hardware differences (a sound control program with the wrong sound hardware, for instance).

The other reason is that a restore disc also includes information that gets placed into Windows so the system comes up already activated and ready to go. Activation is based on information about the hardware configuration of the system, and yours won't be correct. Windows will see the this and you'll need to activate manually. If the Windows version on the eMachines recovery disc isn't exactly the same as the one on the Gateway, the product key on the computer won't work when you try activation.

Rather than try using the wrong recovery disc, see if you can borrow or download the installation disc for the Windows version specified on the product key sticker on the Gateway. Then you can do a clean new Windows installation and activate it using the product key. You can find the drivers your computer needs at Gateway's website as I mentioned before. It's more work than just running the recovery disc, but it will work. This does mean the system won't have any of the preloaded applications originally on the computer when you're finished. But this is not a bad thing.

Much of the preloaded stuff on a new computer is often called "bloatware", which you really don't need. It just slows the computer down, uses up Windows resources, and may be gathering information and sending it to sites behind your back. You can find good free programs to do anything originally installed and install only what you really need and want. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

CD/DVD burning: CDBurnerXP
Antivirus: AVG, Avast!
Audio processing: Audacity
Image processing: GIMP
Office suite: OpenOffice

Good luck getting the system back up and running. Thanks for using Fixya!

I can not load rainbow six3 raven shield on my pc it has 3 disc what do I do. Big Bytes-www.red-ant.com.au


First you need to place the disc labelled "Disc 1" or "Install" into your DVD drive on your PC. Then, double click My Computer (Start Menu, Computer if using Windows 7), right click on the DVD drive (it will probably says Rainbow Six: Raven Shield) then click "Autoplay". This should then start the installation. Continue through the installation as you would any other program, then change discs when prompted. Simple! Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate my reply!

Unable to re-install office xp software from hp supplied cd's that came with hp laptop.


Are you unable to install, reinstall, or activate ?

Typically, Office won't come on a separate CD; it would come as a trial on your installation disk. If it's supplied (like application CDs), maybe try using the 1st disc out of the set. Also, you may run Control Panel - Add/Remove programs and see that you don't ahve any other office installations or office trials in place.

How do you download the game onto the computer?


You insert a disc. An Autoplay Screen comes up. Run the setup when prompted. Follow the on screen directions to install the program once you press install on the autorun menu.

Also , many products include inserts on how to install a program. These are usually referred to as quickstart directions. They are designed to give a no frills list of how to install the games.
