Question about Computers & Internet

Hi I am trying to write a load of photos from my pc (windows XP) to a CD. I am using the CD writing Wizard and name the file when prompted. However when I insert a CD-R disc into the relevant drive, the wizrad maintains that there is no disc in the drive. I have tried different discs, rebooted my pc etc, but still when i get to this stage, the wizard does not recognise that there is a CD in the drive? Any advice on what the problem might be?

    I am just using the windows CD writing wizard.

    First I open my file containing the pictures. I select all pictures and go to file, send to, DVD-RW drive (E) which copies all the files. When I get prompted, I open the balloon that tells me I have files ready to be written to the CD. Then I go to file, write these files to CD, which brings up the CD Writing Wizard. I type in the name of the CD and click next. The wizrd then says there is no disc in the drive and tells me to insert a writable CD into drive E:\.

    I bought a pack of new CD-R discs and when I insert the disc, the wizard still requests I insert a writable CD into the drive.

    Hence my problem.

    I have since sent the files to my work PC and done exactly the same thing, and when I put the disc in it automatically writes the files to the disc. Therefore I believe I am doing everything correct.

    Any ideas why it is not working on my PC at home?

    My PC is approx 3 years old and this is the first time I have attempted to copy pictures to CD on it.

    Any help will be much appreciated



    Thanks

First of, may i know what burner are you using? I recommend you to use NERO instead. Burning pictures in a cd is not that much complicated. Let me know what other details your doing while your burning.

How to fix my acer extensa 4630z? Its boot manager is missing or corrupted.


First you need:
To enter Recovery Console in Windows XP, you will need to boot from the Windows XP CD.

Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.
Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, just restart and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
  1. Enter Windows XP Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.
When you reach the command line (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.

bootcfg /rebuild

The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.

The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).

Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.

The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.

This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.

The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.

Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.

Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.

Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

How too down load picture from computer too cd?


ok ...practically you have to burn into a cd some pictures that ya have stored into your computer ....if we are talking about a cd and not a dvd...its easy...you do not need aditional program to do that cause windows xp already have a program built in that allow ya to make a cd...
so ...insert a blank cd into the disk drive ...first ...than locate the pictures you want to put on the cd ...and copy them into the disk drive folder...they will look like they are blured ..cause in this moment they are temporary files there ....in the left side you have some tasks ....one of them says : write this files on cd ....click on it ...and the wizard for writing files on cd will start ...choose a name for the cd ...or leave it with the date ...and click next ....the wizard will do the job ...
the only thing you have to keep in mind is that a cd has only 700 M space on ...and you do not have to load more than that .
the easy way is to make a folder first and put all the files on it ...and then add teh folder to the drive folder, in this way you will have better control on the amount of files you add....
second, ....if you want to burn a DVD disk ...you will have to install a program to do that ..such as NERO ....or any other program that assist on burning ...

Do you have your windows disk? If so try this... put in the cd and restart the computer and when prompted to "pressany key to boot from cd' do so. Enter Windows XP Recovery Console by click on R. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.

Windows xp installer problem


Jack,

Do you know what it's trying to install? The status bar at the top of the browser should be prompting you with the name of the package.

Are you sure it's the browser and not windows trying to install something? Run Windows update and be sure everything is current. You may have to run & reboot a few times before your machine is up to date.
