Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I type an article into works/word and copy to a disc with Record Now, it make the file read-only, so when I send it to a publisher it is not correctable, since it is read-only. It is not a Windows problem, since it is only when I transfer to a disk.

    Thanks for trying. There has to be a way other than converting. Is there a program fault that needs to be corrected to end this problem. It did not use to convert to read only when I transfered a typed word article to cd.

To alter file attributes, right click the file and go to 'properties'. On this window, you can deselect the 'read only' checkbox and click ok, then you will be able to change the file (as long as the file is saved to a rewritable media - if it is written to cd it will remain read only).

    Actually, it is the same file, there is no conversion taking place. If you were burning to CDRW I would believe you, but files burned to a CD are set "Read Only" every time unless you are using backup or archiving software.

Remove Write protection from DVD disc


1. Insert the DVD disc into the computer's DVD-ROM burner drive. Click on "Burn files to disc" from the window that automatically pops up.

2. Type a name for the DVD disc in the "Burn a Disc" box. Click "Show formatting options" and choose a formatting option.

3. Choose "Live File System" to allow files to be copied immediately to the DVD disc, much like sending data to a USB flash drive or floppy disk. Live File System discs can only be read by Windows XP or later versions. Choose "Mastered" to have files be copied to the DVD all at once. This is the standard burning method; discs can be played back on any DVD-ROM drive.

4. Click "Next" to prepare the disc. Files can now be copied to the disc using the selected method.

How do I format a dvd disc


You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD


Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

Cd drive and burner are not working


Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive.

To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps:
  1. Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
  4. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:\*.* HardDiskDrive:\cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder.

    Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files.
  5. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F.
  6. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement.

Driver needed for TSST Corp CDDVDW TS-H653N SCSI CdRom Device please. DVD drive shown in My Computer, and MS says I have the correct driver for this device. But, it doesn't work.


If the computer still cannot read a disc, there may be a problem with the drive. Go to method 3 to troubleshoot the CD or DVD drive. If the computer can read the other disc, there is a problem with original CD or DVD. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. Method 3: Try a different disc drive If the disc is clean and undamaged, check whether there is a problem with the drive. To do this, follow these steps: If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer. If the other CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be a problem with your CD or DVD drive. Go to method 5. If the other CD or DVD drive cannot read the disc, the disc may not be compatible with the drive. Go to method 4. Method 4: Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive. A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive. A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs. A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front. If the disc is compatible, go to method 5. If the disc is incompatible, use a compatible disc or contact the vendor for a compatible replacement. Back to the top Method 5: Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com If these methods do not resolve your issue, try the advanced troubleshooting steps in this article. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, or you might want to contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/ If methods 1 through 5 did not resolve the issue, you can follow these methods to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Method 1: Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive. To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps: Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:*.* HardDiskDrive:cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder. Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. To continue trying to isolate the problem and test the CD or DVD drive, go to method 2. Method 2: Test the CD or DVD drive in a "clean boot" state If the disc is readable and undamaged, there may be some hardware or software that is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. You can test this by inserting the disc into the drive after restarting your computer in a clean boot state. This helps you determine whether any hardware or software is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. To test this, follow these steps: Restart the computer in a clean boot state. Note For more information about how to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310353 How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state After the computer is restarted, exit all programs and applications that may be using the CD or DVD drive. First, right-click each icon in the notification area, and then click Exit. Note The notification area is located at the far right of the taskbar, near the clock. Some programs that are listed in the notification area do not have an Exitcommand. Therefore, you may have to click Quit, Close, or Disable, depending on the commands that are available for that program. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) taskmgr in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Windows Task Manager opens. Click the Applications tab. If any programs appear in the Task list, click the name of the program to select it, and then click End Task. Repeat the previous step until the Task list is empty. Close Windows Task Manager. Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be other programs preventing the drive from reading the disc. Go to method 3. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the "Next Steps" section. Method 3: Change the CD or DVD drive configuration If there are programs that are preventing the drive from reading the disc, you can try to resolve this issue by configuring the drive to run in direct memory access (DMA) mode. DMA mode is a high performance mode for transferring data to and from devices. These include CD and DVD drives. To configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode, follow these steps: Configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode. For more information about how to switch your computer's disc drive controller to DMA mode, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310751 Device settings are hard to find in Windows XP Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, you are finished. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, try to troubleshoot DVD components by using method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the “Next Steps” section. Method 4: Troubleshoot DVD problems If the advanced troubleshooting methods 1 through 3 do not resolve the issue, and you have problems specifically with a DVD drive, follow these steps to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Prerequisite You must use a DVD drive with a DVD logo on the front, not a standard CD drive. Step 1: Unplug any cables that are connected Unplug any cables that are connected to the video outputs of the computer. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, you may have problems with the video hardware installed on your computer. Contact the manufacturer of the video hardware for support or for a replacement. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 2. Step 2: Update the DVD driver Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain an updated driver for the DVD drive, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the driver. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated driver. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 3. Step 3: Obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the decoder. Note Many video adapters help decode DVD discs. However, the video adapter may not fully decode a DVD movie. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated DVD decoder. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, make sure that the sound card in the computer is compatible with the DVD drive. To do this, contact the manufacturer of the sound card. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive.

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.
