Re: no usb ports are working,dvd drive do not burn.
If you are having multiple component issues you should probably check if the motherboard isn't acting up; usually this is the solution to many problems at one time since the motherboard keeps everything running together smoothly.
Check the inside of your CPU for dust and also check your configuration (via My Computer and right clicking on the appropriate drive) of your DVD writer.

Your USBs are more than likely past their sellby date! A PCI card like this with some new USB ports would only cost a few £/$ and are very easy to install if you follow the instructions and an awful lot cheaper than a new motherboard!
Perhaps you should reinstall the Sonic stuff, in case it was affected since the virus cleanup. If the OS had some of its components quarantined from virus contamination, you are probably stuck reinstalling the OS...though of course you can search the web (and not least Microsoft.com if that's the sort of OS you use) for healing 'media detection' issues (w.r.t. your particular OS.)
MAIN QUESTION. NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org just let me know in the subject that your real.
Is this an older drive? Possible that the drive is dying. I had this happen to me once. I ended up buying a new cd/dvd burner. The laser works different when reading verse burning, so it is possible that it is dead, but still working just enough to burn.
no fear. sorry to say that your usb flash is done for. extracting the information can be done, but it is a specialized job and thus will cost a small fortune. getting it repaired is fairly simple but the information inside might not be attainable due memory chip damage. does your fash disk power up (as in does the light on it flash when plugged unto the USB port)?
babyvalkyrie. your problem is slightly different. what you need to do is log onto the bios menu during startup if the bios recognises the the HDD then you can try to re-install windows on it, but during setup you will have to formatt your harddrive fully (formatt using the long formatt not the quick formatt. also use the ntfs formatt. If your bios does not recognise your HDD then you will just have to replace it.
Take it to a friends house with internet, temporarily install it on his/hers machine, update and flash the firmware to latest and do a test burn there. Install it back to your cpu and see what happens. also, try a different burning software. Good Luck
