Try a flash drive instead of the CD ROM drive. They hold lots of info these days, and are much smaller and easier to use. A CD only holds around 800 MB, whereas the little USB flash drives are up into the gigahertz range. I just got one that holds 4 GB for less than $20.

The BKF file is only a reference to allow the XP os to know what program opens which file. It doesn't contain photos or music or documents.

Changed hardrive now says no bootable device insert boot disk. dont have boot disk


Turn on the PC.

Supply the CD-ROM / DVD holding your preferred operating system - Windows, Linux, etc., into the CD / DVD tray and close the tray.

Wait up to 30 seconds for the CD / DVD drive to stop spinning

Turn the PC off.

Wait 15 seconds.

Turn the PC on.

Let the PC boot from the CD-ROM automatically / instruct the PC to boot from the disk in the CD / DVD drive.

Supply information as prompted.


If you do not have a CDROM/DVD, you will need to contact the PC manufacturer to obtain a start up disc & driver disk as needed. Explain to the support person that the old drive failed and a new one has been installed. No disk images were retrievable from the old hard drive. This should tell the person that you need everything to get this machine working as factory fresh once again.

You could purchase / download a different Operating System too - but this will likely cost much more than obtaining disks from the PC manufacturer.

Good luck!

Simple question: How do I write/save information onto a CD-R disk


Save the information you want to write to a folder of your choice, in a location where you will know to find it. You can make a special folder in My Docs called Export or whatever....
Then right click the Start button to open explorer. Browse to the folder you saved and select (highlight) it. Right click and choose Send to: CD-RW drive.
Yes to write these files, etc. Probably you'll get a notification balloon that the files are ready to be written to CD.
Scroll down in that same explorer window (or open a new one) to your CD drive (D?) and if you expand it (click +) you should see the files waiting there.
Now highlight the CD drive and click on the File menu. You'll see an option to Write these files to CD. Choose that and the writing takes place..
To retrieve info from a cd, you open explorer, scroll down to the cd drive and open the file or drag and drop it to another location in your documents, for example.
Please also see a step by step guide from Microsoft by clicking here, and a link to the Windows XP Help & How to that you might wish to save as a favorite available here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Need to find out how to install my memorex double layer 16x


Ok here is what you need to do. Open the box that the driver came in and also the side panel of your computer. Remove the cables that are attached to the current CD-ROM drive and if you need to unscrew the screws that are holding the CD-ROM drive in place which you'll need a phillips screw driver for. Remove the old CD-ROM and put in the new one and reconnect the cables to the new one. If an installation disk came with it then put that in the CD-ROM drive and install whatever is on that disk. Afterwards you should be ready to go. If you need anything else please let me know!

CD-ROM has not worked.


It can use a DVD-Rom just make sure that the door is the same size as your old cd-rom so it will fit into the side of your laptop and also make sure that you remove the bracket from the back of the old cd-rom and reattach it to the back of the DVD-rom you want to put in your laptop so that way you can screw it into place

Need the cd-rom exchange for dvd


If the software comes on a DVD I would assume that the files contained on the disc are just too big to fit on a CD. Have you considered changing your (old) cd-rom drive for an up to date dvd burner drive? You can buy an 18 speed DVD burner for around £20 these days and installing an optical drive is one of the easiest upgrade jobs you can do on a PC. Simply a matter of removing the old drive and then installing the new one and reattaching the cables.......

Copying info from one harddrive to another


You can hook the two computers together with a cross over cable. They should have one at Radio Shack or order one online. Here is a link that shows how to go about it. This will allow you to copy everything over.
