Copying dvd into aspire 1 int drive using Sony external DVD write

I have an apsire one and just purchased a Sony DVD +_R DRX 840U so I can copy my dvd's into the aspire memory. But I am receiving an error message that the file path is not correct. The dvd may be protected - shouldn't i get a message for that instead of the file path message? Is there an extra step I need to take to get this dvd into my internal memory? I've installed the dvd burner software and have successfully added a different dvd to the laptop's memory. Thanks for any advice D

How do I download from disc to Acer Aspire one


Hello,

If you need to load software(such as device drivers) from Optical Media) in a system without an ODD Drive, follow these steps:

1. Log in to another PC in your vicinity that has an Optical Disk Drive.
2. Insert the CD/DVD into the PC and copy its' contents over to that PC.
3. Copy over that content to a USB Storage Device (USB Drive, External HDD, etc).
4. Unplug the External HDD/USB Drive with the content from the PC and plug it in your Laptop/Netbook.
5. Copy over the relevant content over to the netbooks' hard drive.

Alternatively, download the needed drivers from Acer's support website.

Can I purchase an attachment cd player to my acer aspire one?


Netbooks are done without space for DVD drive, so you must purchase external DVD drive.
This should work for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135216&cm_re=external_dvd_drive_usb-_-27-135-216-_-Product

It is connected via USB, and I think doesn't need any other source of power.
It's really great solution for people without dvd drives.

Need to copy a dvd that is not copy protected


Hi

Your laptop does have a DVD re-writer which is needed for copying DVD's

You will need to purchase some blank DVD's firstly to copy your project onto

Secondly if you click Start>Porgrams>Accessories>Windows movie maker, you can use this to create your project, there is a tutorial on there to help you get through the software

Have an acer aspire one netbook and want to connect my hp printer, how do I do this as there's nowhere to put disc. Do I need a seperate dvd/rw?


you can either use and external DVD/cd-ROM drive, or if you have access to another PC....you can copy the contents of your disc to a USB flash drive in order to install it on your Aspire one.

Cd rom not working


Backup all your data, copying data in My Documents, Desktop, copying favourites and eventually Outlook data. Copy the data on an external hard disk.
When everything has been saved do a Complete Recovery using the Sony Recovery CD.
The computer will go back to factory settings, in the same state as it was when you purchased it.
That is the easiest way to proceed when you get multiple system problems of this kind.

I have a aspire 5515 acer with Vista Basic and i want to install Xp Pro. When i try to install Xp pro it starts and the comes back that it is quiting the installion because it will damage something. How do...


There's no single way to install Windows XP. As there is no CD / DVD drive, you have two main choices:

1. Purchase an external CD / DVD drive. Plug it into a USB port on the Aspire, and then access the BIOS, Make sure the CD drive is first, and insert your Windows XP disc. You should now be able to install it normally.

2. Use a bootable Flash drive. This method will be far more difficult, and requires a moderate amount of experience with computers. First you will need to install QEMU on another computer. Create a hard drive the same size or smaller than the one in the Acer. Install Windows XP to it using QEMU. Copy the hard drive image onto a USB Flash drive. Now install some version of Linux on it, such as Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux. Howtos are available in the Related Links section below. Boot from the Flash drive, and access a command line. Find your hard drive in the /dev folder (probably sda or hda). Now issue the following command

dd if=image.img of=/dev/hda

This will make an exact copy of the hard drive image to the hard drive in the Acer. Waituntil the command is completely done. Now turn off the computer and unplug the flash drive. When you power it back on, it should boot into Windows.

PQSERVICE


I'm trying a backup of my Aspire One PQSERVICE to DVD after a near catastrophic partitioning experiment.

So far, I've booted from a Knoppix live CD and I'm trying partimage to copy the contents of the PQSERVICE to an image file on an external usb hard drive. Hopefully I can burn the image to DVD-R. So far, it looks promising.... even if I can't make a DVD-R from the image, I can use partimage to restore the PQSERVICE from the image file if I have to.

Another option would be to boot a knoppix live CD and just copy the contents of PQSERVICE to another disk or partition (not NTFS though). Linux doesn't care about the hidden drive partition settings that Windows uses.

How to tell


Burner software will check DVD-RW disk has suffient free disk space, compressed or not. Then you only select a bit less then maximum. Change disk and repeat until all chosen files are copied.
